The new Kia pro_cee'd GT and cee'd GT - the brand's most performance-focused production cars ever - will enjoy their world premieres at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Designed in Europe under the direction of President and Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, the two debutants feature bold athletic styling, distinctive LED daytime running lights, dual-exhaust pipes, Recaro seating, 18-inch alloy wheels and eye-catching red brake calipers.
The new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine will produce 204 PS (201 bhp) and 265 Nm / 195 lb/ft), powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and allowing the Kia pro_cee'd GT and cee'd GT to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 7.9 seconds.
Production of the newest members of the latest generation cee'd family is scheduled to start at Kia's Zilina plant in Slovakia in mid-May 2013. The pro_cee'd GT is anticipated to go sale in the UK from the middle of 2013 and be joined by its cee'd GT counterpart towards the end of the year.
