“Hot hatch” is a term that describes high-performance hatchback models that are both fun and functional. Kia is redefining the hot hatch game with its Provo Concept model. The sporty Provo hot hatch is an edgy new concept from Kia’s European design studio. Let’s take a look inside this high-performance hatchback of the future:
The Kia Provo Concept is compact in size, measuring just 173.6 inches long, 6.9.6 inches wide, and 58 inches tall. Yet despite this compact exterior, the Provo packs an unmistakable presence on the road. The styling features a low front end that curves with a sleek, futuristic shape to meet the high-set rear hatch. Adding to the fashion-forward appeal of the Provo, Kia has outfitted the exterior of this hot hatch with a striking Storm Metal Grey and Blood-Orange color theme that will be sure to turn heads.
The powertrain of the Provo Concept is just as innovative as the striking exterior looks. This hot hatch features a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 201 horsepower. This gasoline engine is paired with a rear electric motor, which can be engaged to provide a 44 horsepower boost for added acceleration power at high speeds. When travelling at lower speeds, the Provo Concept can transfer all of its power to the all-electric motor, making this hot hatch extremely efficient under city driving conditions.
Adding to the futuristic theme of the Provo Concept, Kia has outfitted this model with a sleek, all black interior. This three-door hatch features a back row of seating, which is accessible by front seats that swivel rather than fold down. From behind the wheel, you will enjoy the sleek look of a carbon fiber dashboard with aluminum gauges. For comfort during longer drives, the Provo also offers leather seating.
While the Provo Concept is not yet in production, this innovative hot hatch provides exiting insights into what is next from Kia.
