The new Kia pro_cee'd GT and cee'd GT — the brand's most performance-focused production cars ever — are set to make 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 149kW and 265Nm, 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 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. No word yet on whether we'll be getting either in South Africa.
