KIA introduced the new generation of the Ceed GT model and the new ProCeed


The company KIA has revealed details about the new generation of the sports version of the five-door hatchback Ceed. Also it was held the pre-premier show of the new model ProCeed, which has the body "shooting brake". The official world premiere of both models will be held at the Paris Auto Show at the beginning of October, reports the press service of the KIA. As it was noted, both presented new models are oriented to the European market, where they will appear at the beginning of 2019. At the moment it is too early to talk about the withdrawal of these models to the Russian market.

The new ProCeed will be offered only in GT and GT Line versions. In the profile, the new flagship of the family almost completely repeats the Proceed Concept - right up to the chrome shark fin of the body. ProCeed's length is even larger than the Ceed Sportswagon (5 mm, 4605 mm) estate car, and the front overhang is increased up to 885 mm. In this case, the height of the novelty is only 1422 mm - 43 mm below the Ceed SW. Only the bonnet and front fenders remained common with Ceed, all the other body panels – are the original.

Despite this styling, resembling the contours of the coupe, the volume of the boot of the new ProCeed is 594 liters, which is more by 50% than the five-door hatchback Ceed of the third generation. The absence of a rear tailgate facilitates the loading and unloading of heavy objects. Seats of the second row have the same proportion of folding as the Ceed SW wagon - 40:20:40, and for their remote folding, you can use the lever in the boot. The electric drive of the boot tailgate with an intelligent opening system is optionally available.

For ProCeed, two transmission options are available: a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed pre-selective robot with two clutches for the 1.4 T-GDi engine.

ProCeed even in the initial version has a completely independent suspension (front of the MacPherson strut, rear - multi-link).

Engine power is 204 HP at 6000 rpm, and the maximum torque of 265 N * m is available in the range from 1500 to 4500 rpm.

The standard equipment of a charged hatchback includes the stability control system (ESC), electronic stabilization system (VSM) and a torque redistribution assistant that brakes the wheels to keep the car on the specified trajectory. The dimensions of the brakes are increased: the front discs are 32 mm larger in diameter (320 mm) and by 3 mm thicker (28 mm) than other versions of Ceed. Due to the modified steering ratio (12.7: 1), the steering wheel became "shorter": from the stop to the stop, there are needed 2.44 turns (by 17% less than the first generation of the Ceed GT had).
