Kia released pictures and specs of it’s first performance hatch the Kia Proceed GT which is set to debut in the geneeva motor show. The Kia Ceed GT is a five door hatch-back which will be a contender to the Wolkswagen GTI and the Ford Focus ST, while the proceed aims for the Volkswagen Scirocco and the Renault Megane. The all new Kia Ceed GT looks stunning and different at the same time.
The key thing here was the performance upgrades, both the Ceed and the Proceed receive a turbocharger; both equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine that develops 201bhp and 195lb ft of torque. In terms of suspension and chassis upgrades, The Proceed will receive stiffer sports suspension and a better driver oriented performance steering.
The exterior of the 2014 Kia Proceed GT received all kinds of aggressive styling elements, like the huge 4split led lighting, and the bumper lower lip with a sleek red insert on the base. The much deserved sharp styling included the side-skirts and the doors which were reshaped for better aerodynamics and a sharper extrude to fit the overall shape. You will also receive a styling GT badge on the front grille, the rims are extremely aggressive in their styling, the kind of remind me of the Maserati’s Gran Turismo rims.
The interior introduce a first for Kia, sporty Recoaro seats complemented with red stitching, and a leather steering wheel which has the stitched GT logo.Both these models will be expected to go on sale around the summer time, after their public debut at the 2013 Geneva motor show in March. The Kia Proceed GT models are expected to sell around 120,000 Dhs respectively.
