Kia grabs the presentation of the shooting brake ProCeed in Barcelona to even the Ceed GT. This sporty topversie has a 204 hp 1.6-liter turbo petrol engines and many other sporty modifications.
The Ceed GT looks subtly sportier than the average family. The bumpers are a bit more aggressive drawn, two-color side skirts are standard and 18-inch wheels that you see on the picture belong to the standard equipment. Inside, see your sports chairs that are specially made for the Ceed GT has been developed, while the sports steering wheel on the bottom is slightly flattened.
The 1.6-liter turbo engine delivers a power of 204 hp, with maximum torque of 265 Nm is available between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm. To wish is the (Pro -) Ceed GT features a six-speed manual or a zeventrapsautomaat with double clutch. Albert Biermann, who also signed for the ride quality of Kia’s flagship model, the Stinger, pity about the alignment of the Ceed GT. That promises to be appealing driving characteristics for those of a sporty drive.
The exhaust is provided with valves. These make for a sportier sound during acceleration while the sound at a constant speed behind. In addition, promises Kia that an electronic sound generator, the occupants of a ‘characterful GT sound provides.
The chassis is firmer made for sporty use, but promises to be even enough to provide comfort for everyday use. The ESP system gives the driver more freedom to the butt just that little bit to the side to let it slide while the sharper steering, a good sense of control.
In 2019 on the market
The omens are promising, but directly to the dealer to run has little meaning. Both the Kia ProCeed if the Kia Ceed GT coming in the first quarter of 2019 on the market. Prices, consumption and performance figures are in the run-up to that moment made known.
