The all-new Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT will make their global debuts at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show tomorrow, but the Korean manufacturer revealed all the details and specs of the two vehicles. As expected, the two vehicles are powered by Kia’s new 1.6-litre GDi (Gasoline Direct Injection) engine equipped with a twin-scroll turbocharger and strengthened internal components.
The engine delivers 204 hp and 265 Nm of torque. Still, fuel-consumption is 7.4l / 100km and the vehicles emit just 171g/km of CO2. Using a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, the front-wheel drive models are able to accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 7.7 seconds and have a top speed of 230 km/h or 143 mph. Moreover, the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT can accelerate from 60-100 km/h in fourth gear in 5.4 seconds, 80-120 km/h in fifth gear in 7.3 seconds and 80-120 km/h in sixth gear in 8.8 seconds.
Regarding the design, both cars feature the interesting four-point LED daytime running lights, new front grilles and lamp clusters, deeper bumpers, new fog lights, dual-exhaust pipes, larger 18-inch alloy wheels, eye-catching red brake calipers and a range of special paint finishes.
The interior continues the sporty theme showed by the exterior and we find Recaro sport sears, alloy pedals, bespoke surface materials and a seven-inch racing car-inspired TFT instrument cluster to create an engaging, performance-oriented ambience for the driver and passengers. According to the official press release, the suspension was also tuned in order to ensure that the high performance credentials of these more powerful models are matched by exceptional dynamic characteristics.
