Kia has released UK pricing and specification details for the all-new Pro_Cee’d that is available to order from today at prices ranging from £17,495 to £20,795. A high-performance version of the series named the GT featuring a 201bhp 1.6-liter turbo engine will join the range in the summer, with prices to be announced.
The third body style of Kia's compact model series after the Cee'd five-door hatchback and Sportswagon, is available in two trim levels named "S" and "SE", and a choice of two engines, a 133bhp 1.6-liter GDi petrol and a 126bhp 1.6-liter CRDi diesel, both linked to a standard 6-speed manual gearbox. The 1.6 GDi in ‘SE’ trim is also offered with an optional six-speed DCT automatic transmission.
The 'S' trim grade comes equipped with 16-inch wheels, cornering lights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights, rear lights and side repeaters, all the usual electric and safety amenities, plus cruise control with speed limiter and steering wheel mounted controls, air-conditioning, and an audio system with Bluetooth connectivity.
Moving up to the 'SE' adds 17-inch alloy wheels, stainless steel door sill plates and pedals, sport seats up front, automatic dual-zone climate control, automatic rain-sensing wipers, a 7-inch touchscreen Euro-wide satellite navigation system, automatically-dimming rear view mirror and keyless smart entry system with start/stop ignition button.
