New Kia Ceed GT, GT-Line And ProCeed Ready To Go On Sale In The UK

Kia has announced pricing and specifications for the new-generation Ceed GT, Ceed GT-Line and ProCeed model in the United Kingdom.

Building on the success of the previous Cee’d GT and Pro_Cee’d GT, which were launched in 2013, the new Ceed GT starts from £25,535 ($32,773/€28,573), undercutting the more powerful VW Golf GTI by £5,400 ($6,931/€6,042).

It uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, rated at 201 PS (198 hp / 148 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque. The sole transmission offered in the UK is a six-speed manual, although an optional seven-speed auto is available in other markets. The GT hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.2 seconds and has a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).

Among the standard equipment, customers will find an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, sat-nav, heated front seats, keyless entry and dusk-sensing headlights. Vehicle Stability Management, High Beam Assist, Lane Keeping Assist with Forward Collision Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning and other safety systems will assist drivers.

The Ceed GT-Line comes in five different grades, with prices ranging between £21,535 ($27,639/€24,097) and £27,185 ($34,890/€30,420). Customers can choose between a 118 PS (116 hp / 87 kW) 1.0-liter and a 138 PS (136 hp / 101 kW) 1.4-liter petrol, or a 134 PS (132 hp / 98 kW) 1.6-liter diesel. The petrol options come with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission, whereas the oil burner is only available with a stick shift.

Distinctive design features inspired by the GT, unique 17- or 18-inch wheels, black roof lining inside, a flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in leather, new sports seats and GT-Line S exclusive black leather and faux suede upholstery with grey stitching set them apart from the regular Ceeds.

Available in six different versions and with two engine options for the GT-Line, the new ProCeed is priced from £23,835 ($30,591/€26,671). It comes with a 1.4-liter petrol that produces 138 PS (136 hp / 101 kW) and 242 Nm (178 lb-ft) of torque, or a 1.6-liter diesel, rated at 134 PS (132 hp / 98 kW) and up to 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque. Both units can be paired to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed auto.

Clients willing to spend at least £28,135 ($36,110/€31,483) on the new ProCeed can get the GT grade. It uses the same engine as the warm hatch, namely the 201 PS (198 hp / 148 kW) 1.6-liter petrol, which is married to a 7-speed automatic gearbox this time.

An 8-inch touchscreen display, smartphone integration, Bluetooth, dual-zone air-con, automatic windscreen wipers and headlights, heated front seats and smart entry system are part of the standard equipment. Additionally, higher specs get wireless smartphone charging, an electric sunroof, electric tailgate and a JBL sound system.

The ProCeed will go on sale locally on January 21.
