The reliable and popular cee'd range, the car that put Kia on the map, receives a sporty overhaul with the pro_cee'd GT, a hot hatch that builds on the strong groundwork of the standard pro_cee'd but adds a few surprises of its own that make it stand out even further from the crowd.
The Kia pro_cee'd GT has a number of design tricks up its sleeve to ensure that it can be recognised as something different from the standard cee'd and pro_cee'd models. The pro_cee'd GT still carries the same low stance, slim grille and flowing lines of its sister models, but the hot hatch is made even hotter thanks to side sill mouldings, 17-inch alloy wheels, chic privacy glass and a cluster of four incredibly stylish and cool 'ice cube' LED daytime running lights, sitting low to the ground beneath the headlamps.
The extra special touches don't stop with the Kia pro_cee'd GT's exterior. Kia has taken great steps to ensure that the pro_cee'd feels like a high-quality hot hatch in every respect. The interior features elements such as an infotainment system with a seven-inch display that includes satellite navigation as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems. Leather is used throughout to increase the sense of luxury, with the steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake all upholstered with real leather. The pro_cee'd GT also features a faux leather trim in the centre of the doors.
The Kia pro_cee'd GT comes with a choice of three petrol and three diesel engines, each with different powers and top speeds. Those who prefer a petrol engine can choose between a 1.0-litre unit that is backed by 118bhp or a 1.6-litre with 113bhp. There's also a range topping 1.6-litre unit which harnesses 201bhp to hit 143mph. The three diesel options are all 1.6-litre and can hit top speeds of 117mph, 122mph and 124mph, thanks to a universal 134bhp.
Other models in the Kia cee'd range have achieved a five-star crash safety rating from the experts at Euro NCAP, so the pro_cee'd GT carries that same high-quality seal of approval. As well as a full complement of airbags, the pro_cee'd GT features ISOFIX child-seat mountings, ABS, electronic stability control and emergency stop signalling to keep the driver, passengers and other motorists safe at all times.
