Kia is certainly cranking them out at the moment – the 2014 Cadenza made its US debut in Detroit, and the cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT are set to premiere in Geneva, as is a hatchback concept.

Before the latter trio emerge, however, the wraps will come off the Cross GT first, and that’s set to happen next week at the Chicago Auto Show. No details about the CUV with a wedgy-front end, save that it’s inspired by nature and driven by technology, whatever that means.

Oh, and that it’ll be larger than the mid-sized XM Sorento. Presumably, this means that the automaker is looking at moving on to bigger things, specific for the US market. Guess we’ll find out when Chicago opens.
