2013 Kia Pro_cee’d GT Rreview [Auto Express]

The Kia Pro_cee’d GT is the South Korean carmaker’s first ‘warm’ hatch - a move that’s set to help distinguish 'sporty’ Kia from its 'luxury’ stablemate Hyundai.

First to arrive in the UK is the three-door Pro_cee’d GT, which will be followed by the five-door Cee’d GT early in 2014. As befits the pinnacle of the range the GT gets a range of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades and is also the first to use the brand’s 201bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine.

Designed, developed and built in Europe, the GT will be sold exclusively here too and is further proof of Kia’s ambition to take on big-hitters like Ford and Volkswagen who have traditionally dominated this class.
