Kia ProCeed GT 2022 - New ProCeed GT 2022


New powertrains combine performance with refinement and efficiency

The new Ceed range offers buyers a fully comprehensive choice of powertrain configurations, including a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and mild-hybrid engines (MHEV), with horsepower ranging from 100PS to 204PS. Ceed customers are also presented with a choice of turbo charged petrol and diesel engines, the 1.0 and 1.5 liter petrol and the 1.6 liter diesel, powertrains all benefitting from Kia’s Smartstream technology.

The Smartstream engine technology incorporates Kia’s Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) engine technology to optimize performance. CVVT also serves to improve fuel efficiency alongside the Low-Pressure Exhaust Gas Recirculation (LP EGR), which returns some of the hot gases produced by the engine to the combustion chamber to reduce pumping losses and improve fuel economy.

The new 1.5 liter T-GDi engine is produced in Kia’s Slovakia plant - also home to the production of the Ceed family. This new Smartstream engine, which replaces the previous 1.4 liter T-GDi, is paired either to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) or a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT) and delivers 160PS while offering reduced emissions. The new 1.5T engine is also available as MHEV while diesel Ceed, delivering 136PS, is only available as a mild-hybrid that can be paired with either the intelligent manual transmission (iMT) or 7DCT transmissions.

The latest updates to Ceed also introduce MHEV and DCT technology to the 1.0 turbo charged petrol engine for the first time, to provide customers with the option of further reducing powertrain emissions. The adoption of MHEV technology improved fuel efficiency and performance.

PHEV models make use of the 1.6 GDi petrol engine which delivers 141PS and is paired to a six-speed dual clutch transmission. This powertrain comes with an 8.9kWh battery pack providing a zero-emission electric only range perfect for the city of 57km on a single charge.

Top of the range GT models are presented with an exclusive 1.6 liter T-GDi engine with a unique sound. The petrol engine is mated to the 7DCT and delivers a huge 204PS.

The experience behind the wheel can be further tailored to suit the driver’s mood and road conditions via paddle-shift levers and three drive modes: Eco, Comfort and Sport modes. The GT Sports drive mode is specifically tuned to the needs of the GT driver’s expectations.

The iMT 'clutch-by-wire' system contributes to the MHEV system's enhanced fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions while retaining the driver engagement of a conventional manual gearbox.

Ceed models are also available with the standard six-speed manual transmission and the highly desired double-clutch transmission.
