CHICAGO -

The all-new Kia Forte will be sold in a 5-door version when it goes on sale a little later this year.

Kia showed off the slick hatchback version of its popular sedan Thursday at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.

The 2014 Kia Forte 5-door does away with the sedan’s conventional trunk and gets a sleek hatchback instead.

There will be two versions.  The EX gets a conventional 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine, while the more upscale SX will get a more powerful turbo-charged engine.

Kia also used the Chicago Auto Show to take the wraps off its new Cross GT Concept.  The car is just a design study for now, but shows what Kia designers would do with a small SUV.
