2019 – KIA CEED
The new generation of KIA Ceed is one of the great news that the Korean manufacturer will show at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 and today we were able to get to know you in detail thanks to the official images released.A few days ago the KIA revealed a first official sketch, which in teaser mode showed the main features of the new generation of KIA Ceed, which also debuts a more conventional nomenclature, no longer taking the apostrophe.The third generation of the Korean compact debut an exterior design that is inspired by the KIA Stinger, especially the format of its front. However, his side profile shows the similarities with his brother, the Hyundai i30, with which he shares the K2 platform of the Korean group.Its dimensions are similar to those of the previous model, 4.31 meters long, 1.45 meters high and 1.80 meters wide, with a trunk with a capacity of 395 liters.In relation to the interior, a new panel opens, in addition to higher quality materials that cover most surfaces.

Along with the new KIA Proceed and KIA Proceed GT, the Korean brand also introduced the new Kia Ceed GT 2019, the most spicy version of the five-door hatchback version of the line. This simultaneous presentation is no accident, as both GT versions share something more than these acronyms.In addition to using the same common base for all bodywork versions of the line, the KIA featured the same mechanical assembly for both GT versions. The engine is a 1.6-liter T-GDi four-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 204 hp and 265 Nm of maximum torque. Both models also share the same DCT dual-clutch and seven-speed automatic transmission, although in the case of hatchback this box is optional, being a standard six-speed manual transmission.The mechanical performance is slightly less than its predecessor, and although the company did not say anything about it, we imagine it to be due to the requirements of the entry into force of the new WLTP homologation cycle.The aspect of this version separates you from the rest of the regular line versions. It has the same design scheme as the Proceed GT version, with a bumper that shows larger air intakes with sporting screens and black inserts replacing the usual chrome ones. At the rear there is also a double exhaust outlet and a rear diffuser in the lower part, plus new inserts on the bumper, also black.The sporty appearance stands out with little touches of red on the outside, such as the lower lip of the front bumper and the side skirts, and the interior, where the backlighting of the controls also appears in that color, with the seams also in red. In the unit that appears in the images the coatings combine leather and Alcantara of black color.Among the available equipment there are several driver assistance systems, such as front-line collision assistant, blind spot alert, adaptive cruise control with Stop & Go function, rear dash warning and parking assistant.The new Kia Ceed GT 2019 will be presented live at the Paris Salon 2018 and will begin production in November of that year, at the same plant in Slovakia where all versions of the Ceed line are assembled, including the also recently presented Proceed.
