The site kia-world.net has released a second shot of the Kia pro_cee’d, the hatchback with sporty character, which is scheduled to debut in September at the next Paris Motor Show (29th September – 14th October).
The Korean C-segment presents the same design of the five-door model and it is recognisable from the “Tiger-nose” front grille and the headlights stretching out to the wheels, the side will be subject to a stylistic innovation, removing the rear doors. The rear and side windows create an interesting visual effect of continuity and the roof seems suspended thanks to the sinuos lines of the rear pillar. The tail-lights are elongated and the front and rear bumpers present a streamlined design .
The next generation of Kia Pro cee’d will be equipped with a new 1.2-litre T-GDI petrol engine with output of about 120 hp and a 1.6-litre T-GDI unit with 185 hp. Yet to assess the offer of the quieter 1.4-litre MPI (100 hp) and 1.6-litre GDI (135 hp) engines, while the diesel range has been confirmed: a 1.4-litre WGT with 90 hp and a 1.6-litre WGT with 110 and 128 hp. Each model features the innovative Flex Steer system, which allows the driver to change some parameters of the car selecting the three Comfort, Normal or Sport operating modes.
