New sporty Kia to hit roads

SPEEDY: New Kia is due in Spain by the middle of the year.

THE new Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT – the brand’s most performance focused production cars ever – will have their world premieres at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on March 5.

Designed in Europe under the direction of President and Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, the two debutants feature bold athletic styling, LED daytime running lights, dual-exhaust pipes, 18-inch alloy wheels and eye-catching red brake calipers. Prices and specifications will be confirmed closer to the date.

The new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission will allow the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT to accelerate from zero to 100 kph in 7.9 seconds.

Production of the newest members of the cee’d family is scheduled to start at Kia’s Zilina plant in Slovakia in mid-May, and they will go on sale in Spain from the middle of the year.
