Pricing and specs announced for trio of sporty new Kia models

Proceed, Ceed GT and Ceed GT-Line all take the brand's family hatch in a more dynamic direction

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

Kia has announced pricing and specification details for the latest models of its new Ceed hatch – the sportier GT and GT-Line trim levels – as well as the new ProCeed shooting brake.

The ProCeed variant marks a new body style for the Ceed – it replaces the more traditional pro_cee’d hatchback with a Mercedes CLA-style 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 140hp, 1.4-litre petrol engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and GT-Line trim. The range moves up through a 135hp 1.6-litre diesel, starting from £24,685, to the range-topping 204bhp 1.6-litre GT model, which retails for £28,135.

GT-Line S adds 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a sunroof, electric 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.

Sportier Kia Ceed models also priced up

Meanwhile, GT-Line, GT-Line S and top-spec GT models of the standard Ceed hatchback also debut. The equipment on these mirrors that of the larger ProCeed, as do power outputs for the three available engines.

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