Sporty small cars are a popular choice for anyone here in the Crystal Lake or Elgin, IL area that wants to add a little spice to their regular commute. The 2015 Honda  Civic Si Coupe and the 2015 Kia Forte Koup are both compact two-door cars that provide stellar handling and performance, impressive efficiency, and the latest features. Plus, neither will break the bank. But which one will offer the superior package at the better price? Read on to find out more!


The 2015 Honda Civic Si packs more power with its 2.4L four-cylinder that puts out 205 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Kia Forte Koup only gets a 2.0L four-cylinder that cranks out 173 hp and 154 lb-ft of torque. That means that the Civic Si should accelerate faster and provide more performance.

Residual Value

ALG estimates that the 2015 Honda Civic Si Coupe will retain more of its value both after three years and five years. The Civic Si should be worth 59 percent of the purchase price in 36 months and 44 percent in 60 months. The 2015 Kia Forte Koup will sit at 54 percent and 39 percent respectively.


The 2015 Honda Civic Si received ‘Good’ ratings in all crashworthiness tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2015 Kia Forte Koup fell short of that goal thanks to a second-worst ‘Marginal’ score in the small front overlap test.


The 2015 Honda Civic Si is simply better equipped than the 2015 Kia Forte Koup. Every version comes standard with a limited slip differential to keep wheels from spinning when you step on the gas. Every Si comes with a rearview camera for easy and safe parking and reversing. The Si even gets upscale features like a power moonroof, a vehicle and stereo theft prevention system, and floor mats, all standard. None of that comes standard on the Forte Koup.
