Pricing and specifications released for trio of sporty new Kias

Kia has announced pricing and specification details for the latest evolution of its new Ceed – the stylish GT and GT-Line trim levels as well as the new Proceed shooting brake.

The Proceed marks a whole new body style for the Ceed – it replaces the more traditional pro_cee’d hot hatchback with a more revolutionary (and more conventionally punctuated) shooting brake estate. It will sit alongside the standard Ceed SW estate, differentiated by its swooping roofline and exclusively high-spec trim levels.

With prices starting from £23,835, the Proceed is very much the flagship of the Ceed range – available only in high-spec GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT trims. That starting price nets buyers a 138bhp, 1.4-litre petrol engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and GT-Line trim. The range moves up through a 134bhp 1.6-litre diesel, starting from £24,685, to the range-topping 201bhp 1.6-litre GT model, which retails for £28,135.

All Proceeds are highly specified, featuring an eight-inch infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, lane-keeping assist, black cloth and grey faux leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, auto lights and wipers plus keyless entry.

GT-Line S adds 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a sunroof, power driver’s seat, leather and suede upholstery, automatic park assist, premium JBL sound system and radar-guided cruise control.

Range-topping GT adds further sporty styling, red stitching for the interior and a beefier body kit.

Meanwhile, GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT models of the standard Ceed hatchback also debut. The equipment on these mirrors that of the larger Ceed, as do power outputs for the three available engines. An additional 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol is also available as an entry into the range – it offers 118bhp and is priced from £21,535. The range continues from £22,335 for a 1.4-litre model, £23,185 for a 1.6-litre diesel and £25,535 for the range-topping GT.

All of these models will go on sale later this month, with Kia’s seven-year warranty as standard.
