    Geneva 2013: Kia Provo Concept

    Kia Provo Crossover Coupe Concept Leaked Ahead of Geneva Motor Show Debut

    A track-inspired, three-door hatchback concept from Kia called the Provo will be heading to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with images leaked ahead of its official debut.

    Though itís just a concept, itís one of the sportiest and most aggressive vehicles Kia has ever shown. Itís sleek, stylish, and its center-locking wheels give it a race-inspired look. The two-tone paint job works also, with the orange contrasting the pewter-like paint. The subtle chrome accent underneath the door surprisingly blends in, while the concept overall exudes a futuristic yet realistic design.

    With a reworked front end I could easily see this wearing an Audi badge

    It looks like a blind cat searching for its dish.

    the KIA grill is missing and IMHO the front to me looks like it came off of an electric car concept

    "Crossover Coupe"? What's crossover about this? It's a hatchback.

    The "tigernose" design is there - it's just real tiny and not really visible within the grill design.

    Overall, the sheetmetal design is OK - don't love it but it's better than the Mini coupe. DS3 or 500.

    What does stand out, however, is the dash design.

    Finally, a real good looking Kia dash design; they should utilize this basic design throughout their sedan/coupe lineup.

    They need to stop using the word 'crossover' in the auto industry. Tired word...

    This vehicle looks like the next gen Soul. Kia wants to do a full line of Souls ala Mini (Cooper, Countryman, et al.) and this looks like it could be a two-door Soul.

    ^ The 2-door Soul would be the production version of the Track'ster concept.

    This would be a 2-door coupe version; but you're right, it seems like Kia is intent on expanding the Soul into a family of vehicles.

    To my eye it looks suspiciously like a 130r.

    I was about to say that you beat me to it. They just love to copy and can't resist.

    They sell 120K +/- Souls annually. I hear a lot of desire for AWD as well as more spiff. Spinning the Soul into a more complete line could open a lot of doors.

    I'm not really caring for it.
    I think w/a corporate Kia grill, it could be Kia's Veloster of sorts.

    !!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!
