The company Kia introduced a sports modification of the third-generation Ceed model, which was named ProCeed. The public debut of the novelty will be held at the motor show in Paris in September. Sales of cars in Europe will begin in the first quarter of next year. Whether to appear on the Russian market is still unknown.

The car was made similar to the eponymous concept car, which was presented in the fall of 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Before, the name Proceed was used on a three-door version of the model, which the company decided to abandon after a change of generation.

From standard Ceed the car differs with new bumpers, other wheel disks, a sports exhaust system, a spoiler and other optics. The length of the novelty is 4605 mm. Thus, the novelty became larger than the Ceed Sportswagon, but the clearance for new Kia ProCeed was reduced by 5 mm.

The range of engines of the GT-Line version included a 1.0-liter petrol unit with a payload of 120 hp. and a 1.4-liter engine with a power of 140 hp. In addition, customers will be offered a 1.6-liter diesel engine. The power of this engine is 136 hp. All units can work together with a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed automatic transmission with a double clutch.
