All-new Kia ProCeed

The all-new Kia ProCeed is now available at your nearest SG Petch Kia showrooms.

The all-new model merges stunning design with the space and versatility of a tourer in a five-door shooting brake body. Carrying the name over from the second-generation pro_cee’d three-door coupé, the Kia ProCeed has been designed, developed and engineered in Europe. A product of Kia’s European design, product development and R&D teams in Frankfurt, Germany, the ProCeed is manufactured at the brand’s Žilina production facility in Slovakia. It’s also built alongside the Kia Ceed and Ceed Sportswagon, introduced last year.

The All-new ProCeed will be available exclusively in ‘GT-Line’, ‘GT-Line S’ or high-performance ‘GT’ model trim, with all engines meeting the latest Euro-6d-Temp emissions regulations.

GT-Line models have the option of two engines; a new high revving 1.4 Turbo charged petrol producing 138bhp and 242Nm torque and a new 1.6 CRDi ‘Smartstream’ diesel engine producing 134bhp and 320Nm of torque. Both engines can be paired with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The ProCeed ‘GT-Line S’ is only available with the 1.4 T-GDi engine and is paired with the seven-speed auto Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT).

Marking the return of Kia’s high-performance ‘GT’ model, the ProCeed ‘GT’ is powered by a 1.6-litre T-GDi engine, identical to that found in the Ceed ‘GT’. Producing 201bhp and 265Nm, it is the most powerful engine in the line-up. The ProCeed ‘GT’ sees the introduction of Kia’s seven-speed auto Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) for the first time, enabling quick-fire gear shifts via the metal alloy steering wheel paddles.

At 4,605mm long, the Kia ProCeed is 5mm longer than the Ceed Sportswagon, with a longer 885mm front overhang. At 1,422mm in height, its roofline sits 43mm lower than that of the Sportswagon, while ground clearance is reduced by 5mm, to 135mm. Constructed on the same ‘K2′ platform as other Ceed models, the 2,650mm wheelbase and, 1,800mm width remain unchanged.

While the Ceed Sportswagon’s boot is marginally larger, at 625 litres, the Kia ProCeed offers identical versatility features, making it one of the most usable cars in its class. On ‘GT-Line S’ grades this includes 40:20:40 split-fold rear seats, folded with a single touch from a lever just inside the tailgate. On ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT’ versions, 60:40 split-fold rear seats feature. An underfloor storage area can stow smaller items and the boot features a bag hook to prevent groceries and other items rolling around the load bay. The Smart Power Tailgate on the ‘GT-Line S’ model opens automatically when it detects the ProCeed’s smart key in close proximity to the tailgate, for occasions when users’ hands are full with heavy cargo. The ‘GT-Line S’ grade has a luggage floor rail system as well.

New safety and advanced driver assistance systems including Lane Following Assist (LFA), fitted as standard to the ‘GT-Line S’ model, Lane Following Assist which detects road markings to help keep the ProCeed in the centre of its lane on the motorway, and controls acceleration, braking and steering. The system uses external sensors to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, operating between 0 and 81mph.

Dependent on grade, additional available technologies include Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Speed Limit Information System (SLIF), Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS), and pedestrian detection with haptic steering wheel warnings for the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system (FCA).

Every ProCeed is equipped as standard with Kia’s Vehicle Stability Management (VSM). VSM ensures stability when braking and cornering by controlling the car’s Electronic Stability Control (ESC) if it detects a loss of traction.

Prices start from £23,835 for the GT-Line’ 1.4 T-GDi 6-speed manual ISG and up to £28,135 for the GT’ 1.6 T-GDi 7-speed auto DCT ISG.
