A three door version of the latest Ceed hatchback, it looks much sleeker than its earlier generation. The new Cee’d has been designed exclusively for the European market. The new Kia pro_cee’d GT is a higher-performance version of the pro_cee’d family with sexy look.
Kia Pro Cee’d is offered in two engine options namely 1.6-liter GDI petrol engine and 1.6-liter CRDi turbo diesel with intelligent stop. Both engines are available in new models of Kia Pro Ceed. New engines increase performance with 200bhp and 265Nm of torque. This extra power means it can reach from 0-62mph in a respectable 7.9 seconds. Suspension and steering setup is altered too for more responsive handling of car. With a compelling list of standard specifications, four trim levels, as well as powerful yet fuel efficient engines, it’s easy to see why the cee’d is a higher-performance version of the pro_cee’d family.
