Shown publicly for the first time at the Paris Motor Show, the new Kia ProCeed merges stunning design with the space and versatility of a tourer in a five-door shooting brake body. With the DNA of a coupé, the new Kia ProCeed is lower and longer than both the Ceed five-door hatchback and Sportswagon, giving it a unique raked-back silhouette unlike anything in the family car segment.
Inside, the ProCeed features the same ergonomic cabin as the new Ceed and Ceed Sportswagon; characterised by high-quality soft-touch surfaces and a 7" floating touchscreen infotainment system. A redesigned dashboard is now angled more towards you, the driver, for ease of use and accessibility.
Although only two trim levels will be available, there will be four powertrain options consisting of three petrols and a single diesel. The entry-level ProCeed is expected to have a turbocharged 1.0l three-cylinder petrol engine providing 118bhp and 172Nm of torque and is offered alongside a punchier 1.4l four-cylinder engine that gives 138bhp and 242Nm of torque.
The most powerful engine has been reserved for the ProCeed GT though and includes a turbocharged, high performance 1.6l set to produce 201bhp and 265Nm. As standard, all engines are fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox with a 7-speed dual clutch automatic option available across all variants except the 1.0l engine.
The New Kia ProCeed isn't available to order yet, but it is set to go on sale in the UK in January 2019. Like our page on Facebook to stay up-to-date with all the latest news and releases! Available at Snows Kia, in Hampshire, Berkshire & Surrey
