|   Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Kia has finally announced the detailed specifications, price and estimated launch date of the new series of the Kia Procee'd hatch back. The Kia Cee'd range includes a Sports Wagon estate and a hatch back with the name of Procee'd GT and these are the top models from the Kia stables this year. The standard 3 door Procee'd is available in two different trim levels – S and SE and they feature basic differences such as difference in their rim size and entertainment levels.


Satellite Navigation is a unique feature present in the SE trim and larger alloys are present, making the exterior stand out. Kia claims an increase in timing along with better interior and the SE variants are available in petrol and diesel drive trains. A 1.6 liter GDI petrol variant displaces 133 BHP along with 164 ft lb of torque and Kia claims that the vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH in less than 9.8 seconds.

The time taken by the S trim vehicle is lower and the vehicle sports a top speed of 121 MPH. Fuel efficiency levels are 52.3 MPG along with 124 g/km CO2 emission for the S trim while the SE trim features 47.1 MPG and 137 g/km of CO2.

The vehicle powered by the 1.6 liter CRDI engine displaces 126 BHP along with 192 ft lb of torque and the power displacement is considerable considering the diesel drive train featured by the vehicle. The 1.6 liter CDRI engine displaces 126 BHP along with 192 ft lb of torque and the CDRI S Trim is capable of accelerating from 0 – 60 MPH in 11.5 seconds.

Both the engines are mated to a six speed manual transmission system and the dual clutch technology makes sure that the vehicle functions well and displaces maximum power developed by the engine. The 1.6 liter GDI SE is by far the best in class and Kia hopes to improve on its performance for a better ride. Prices for the 1.6 GDI SE is expected to start from £17,495 while the DCT equipped version is expected to be priced at £20,795.

All vehicles from Kia sport a warranty of seven years / 100,000 miles and additional benefits. The reduction in CO2 emission of the new lineup of vehicles is expected to enhance the vehicle's appeal by reducing tax charges. Kia has done a wonderful job designing the new lineup and all the vehicles feature minor upgrades in terms of internal and external parts.

The vehicle has been spied testing in the past and is expected to go on sale quite soon. Kia expects the vehicle to be out by the second quarter of 2013 although official confirmation regarding the date has not been made as of yet. However, the rumored date could be quite close to the actual launch date and people are hopeful that the vehicle will live up to the expectation. Officials from Kia have termed the new vehicles the foresight into the next generation of vehicles from Kia.
