The new Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT – the brand’s most performance-focused production cars ever – will enjoy their world premieres at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on March 5th.
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.
The new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI gasoline engine will produce 204 ps and 265 Nm, powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and allowing the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 7.9 seconds.
Production of the newest members of cee’d family is scheduled to start at Kia’s Zilina plant in Slovakia in mid-May, and they will go on-sale across Europe from the middle of the year. Prices and specifications will be confirmed closer to the on-sale date.
