U Spy The Kia Proceed Shooting Brake Looking Good In Frankfurt

Kia’s sleek ProCeed will premiere on September 13 but thanks to Carscoops reader George Sargiannidis, we’ve caught on early glimpse of the vehicle.

While on a recent trip to Frankfurt, Germany, George was able to film a ProCeed prototype overtaking him. Unlike other prototypes which our spy photographers have snapped in recent months, this ProCeed isn’t adorned with thick body cladding and instead has skin-tight black and white camouflage.

The most apparent change between the ProCeed and the regular Ceed hatchback is the former’s adoption of Shooting Brake bodystyle, inspired by the Proceed concept shown last year. This clip also confirms that the ProCeed will have a five-door design and look more edgy than the hatchback.

Things look very promising.

Kia recently dropped a single teaser image of the vehicle, showcasing its rear fascia and taillights that include a horizontal light bar stretching the width of the rear. The car will also sport a small spoiler jutting out of the roof.

The Kia ProCeed should be offered with an identical range of engines to the hatchback and Sportswagon models. Consequently, they’ll be a selection of petrol and diesel options on offer, including a 1.0-liter T-GDi engine delivering 118 hp and a 1.4-liter T-GDi offering up 138 hp. Additionally, there should also be the Ceed’s 1.6-liter CRDi diesel engine available with power outputs at 113 hp and 134 hp.

All of these engines will be mated with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. The 1.4-liter T-GDi and 1.6-liter CRDi will also be offered with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
