Kia Motors America has introduced the all-new 2011 Forte 5-door hatch at the 2010 New York International Auto Show.

Kia Motors America had a busy 2009 and seems to be keeping the momentum going for 2010. The company unveiled four all-new cars at the 2010 NYIAS, including the Sportage, Sorento SX CUV, the Optima and the Forte 5-door.

The Forte 5-door builds on the Forte sedan and Koup and features five doors, a new front grille, alloy wheels, paddle shifters and navigation. While it sits lower and exudes a performance stance, Kia says it does not compromise on practicality or space.

Details are scarce but two engines are available in the form of a 2.0-litre and a 2.4-litre. Power figures were not supplied. Transmission choices are a new 6-speed manual and an automatic.
