“The world premiere of Kia’s new pro_cee’d
GT and cee’d GT highlights the diversity of our current product line-up
and underpins the natural expansion of the brand into the performance
car market, an important step forward for Kia,” comments Michael Cole,
Chief Operating Officer, Kia Motors Europe. “The new Kia pro_cee’d GT
will have great appeal for motorists looking for style, performance and
dynamism in their next car – and the cee’d GT adds an extra level of
practicality for buyers who prefer five doors.”
Designed in Europe under the direction of
President and Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, the Kia pro_cee’d GT
and cee’d GT feature new front grilles and lamp clusters, deeper
bumpers, jewel-like four-point LED daytime running lights, new fog
lights, dual-exhaust pipes, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, eye-catching
red brake calipers and a range of special paint finishes.
Inside, the GT models are equipped with
Recaro sports seats, alloy pedals, bespoke surface materials and a seven
inch racing car-inspired TFT instrument cluster to create an engaging,
performance-oriented ambience for the driver and passengers.
Significant developments to the suspension
system ensure that the high performance credentials of these more
powerful models are matched by exceptional dynamic characteristics,
while retaining an outstanding ride quality, ensuring that both GT
models are well suited for every day driving.
