An Instagram video showing the sleek Kia ProCeed testing in Germany has been published and it’s sure to get you excited for the new model.
A production version of the Proceed Concept introduced in 2017, the Kia ProCeed will be the third model in the new Ceed range, alongside the hatchback and the Sportswagon. Thanks to its Shooting Brake-style design, the ProCeed should be the most attractive of them all.
The license plate of this ProCeed prototype indicates that it is different to the one spied by a dedicated Carscoops reader last week but for the most part, it looks identical. However, this clip does offer us our closest look at the vehicle to date.
Unsurprisingly, the ProCeed’s front end looks largely the same as its Ceed siblings. Most of the alterations have been made to the rear and include a raked window, a roof spoiler incorporating the third brake light, an appealing diffuser, and narrow taillights disguised under a red and brake wrap. When exposed, these lights should look very nice indeed.
Kia is tipped to sell the ProCeed with the same range of engines as the Ceed hatchback and Ceed Sportswagon. As a result, both a 1.0-liter T-GDi petrol and 1.4-liter T-GDi petrol will be sold, the former of which delivers 118 hp while the latter offers up 138 hp. A diesel engine is also set to be made available, displacing 1.6-liters and pumping out between 113 hp and 134 hp. All engines will be sold with a six-speed manual transmission as standard but the 1.4-liter T-GDi and 1.6-liter CRDi will be available with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
