KIA Goes Sporty at Jim Butler KIA St. Louis

The GT Four-Door and the Provo Hybrid Hatchback will be the inspiration for KIAs new sportier models. Both vehicles debuted in Geneva last week but KIA wants to vamp up its brand with something sportier.

The GT Four-Door, shown above, is good for 389 horsepower with a turbocharged 3.3-liter v6. It also has an eight-speed automatic gearbox. According to Benny Oeyen, Kia Europe's VP of marketing and product planning, The GT Four-Door is almost ready to be approved and go into production.

The Provo, however, could serve as a concept car for the KIA Company. There hasn't been a date set as to when the cars may arrive in production form. Jim Butler KIA will keep you posted on when the GT Four-Door and the Provo Hybrid Hatchback get the go-ahead for production.
