2011 Kia Forte 5-Door gets detailed on the web

The Kia Forte lineup is set to expand this fall with the introduction of the 2011 Forte 5-Door model. We’ve already seen this hatchback take on the traditional Forte design at the New York Auto Show a few months ago, but now the Kia website has a small preview of the upcoming model.

The fall release date is confirmed by the South Korean company, which says that the versatile hatchback will have support for bluetooth, MP3 connectivity as well as Sirius satellite radio capability. Other options already available for the Forte Koup are also expected to make their way onto the hatch.

Most importantly, the 5-Door will have two versions, the lower priced EX and the more feature-rich SX. The EX will be standard with a 156 HP 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, as well as 16-inch wheels, while the SX will come with a 173 HP 2.4-liter engine, and 17-inch wheels. Both units can be coupled with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic.

Expect pricing and other details to be revealed at the end of summer.
