Kia Ceed gains shooting brake version

Five-door coupe-styled ProCeed on sale in early 2019.

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Car Expert?

The new Kia ProCeed will be unveiled at the Paris motor show next month, but in contrast to the previous three-door hatch the car will be a coupe-styled ‘shooting brake.’

According to Kia the five-door car, evolved from the Proceed concept shown at the Frankfurt show in 2017, ‘merges stunning design with the space and versatility of a tourer in a five-door shooting brake body.’

Kia adds that the car has been completely developed in Europe for European buyers. It will be built at Kia’s plant in Zilina, Slovakia.

The Proceed measures up 5mm longer than the traditional estate version of the Ceed range, the Sportswagon, but a longer 89cm front overhang means slightly less boot space compared to the estate’s 625 litres. However the 594 litres is 50% larger capacity than the five-door hatch version of the Ceed.

A 4cm lower roofline and a ride height dropped by 5mm compared to the Sportswagon gives the Proceed a much more purposeful profile to match its coupe styling.

The Proceed will be sold in two trim levels, GT-Line and GT, the latter matching the five-door hatch GT that is also debuting at Paris (story here).

GT-Line variants will be offered with either the 1.0-litre 120hp or 1.4-litre 140hp turbocharged direct injection petrol units, or a 1.6-litre diesel with 136hp. Six-speed manual transmissions will be standard but the 1.4 and 1.6 will also be available with Kia’s new seven-speed dual-clutch auto unit.

The ProCeed GT gets the same 1.6-litre T-GDi engine as the five-door GT, with 204hp and 265Nm. Again six-speed manual or seven-speed auto transmission options will be available.

Kia Proceed models will reach UK customers in the first quarter of 2019 – Kia plans to release full specifications and pricing closer to the car’s showroom launch.
