The new Kia ProCeed features stunning design with the space and versatility of a tourer in a five door shooting brake body as per the preview in a new sketch released today. The Kia proCeed concept was showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year and this new car is developed based on the design blueprint of 2017 Kia ProCeed concept. This new car represents a unique proposition in the mid size family car segment. The new Proceed will provide drivers an unparallel combination of versatility and design.
The new Kia ProCeed will be revealed at an event to be held on 13th September, 2018 and this new car will make its public debut on 2nd October at the 2018 Mondial de l’ Auto in Paris. The new Kia ProCeed is exclusively designed, engineered and developed for Europe as said by the company. The new Kia ProCeed will probable get powered by the same engine as on the new Ceed Hatch. Therefore, the new ProCeed will be powered by a 1.0 litre T – Gdi, 1.4 litre T – Gdi and 1.6 litre T- GDi engine options. The transmission options include manual and DCT gearbox options. The new ProCeed will get Kia’s handful of trim levels.
The shape of the taillights joined by a full width LED light bar can easily confuse the new Kia ProCeed with Ceed Sportswagon. However, the distinguishing features include a triangular shaped third brake light is seen below its roof spoiler and the new ProCeed prominently exhibits its name on the tailgate. The other variances observed from the sketch include smaller side outlets.
As a response to what Hyundai has done with the all new i30, Kia decides to launch the shooting brake version of the new ProCeed. The i30 is available in three variants – hatchback, fastback and station wagon. Therefore, when launched the new ProCeed will rival the Hyundai i30 fastback. The company has no plans of adding the new ProCeed to the India line – up. However, Kia will launch a compact SUV likely to be named as Trazor for the Indian markets. The Trazor will compete with the Creta when launched.
