Kia Motors grabbed eyeballs at the ongoing Paris Motor Show by showcasing four new models - ProCeed, Ceed GT, Ceed GT-Line and the e-Niro. Read below to find out more about them.
Kia ProCeed was unveiled at the ongoing Paris Motor Show and will exclusively go on sale in European markets by the beginning of 2019. Interestingly, the ProCeed is the first model to be introduced in an estate body style from the Ceed family. The vehicle gets a distinctive tiger nose grille and a low-slung roofline. The vehicle will also be available in a high-performance GT model.
The conventional Ceed was known for its taut creases and curvaceous sheet metal. This time around, Kia has revealed the new Ceed GT and the Ceed GT-Line at the ongoing Paris Motor Show. The Ceed GT is powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine that generates 201bhp of power. The GT version gets a six-speed manual as standard while seven-speed DCT is optional. Moreover, the Ceed GT gets a 5mm lower ride height than the standard model and a stiffer fully independent suspension system.
The Ceed GT-Line will be the new feature loaded offering in the Ceed range and will be introduced in the international market next year. Interestingly, the GT-Line will reportedly be offered on every variation of the Ceed, including hatchback and Sportswagon estate form, and will sit below the range-topping GT variant. The Ceed GT-Line will be available with a 1.0-litre and 1.4-litre petrol unit alongside a 1.6-litre diesel engine option.
Kia e-Niro is an all-electric crossover utility vehicle that is powered by a 64kWh long-range battery pack that will offer a driving range of up to 485kms. The e-Niro is also available with a 39.2kWh battery pack that offers a driving range of up to 312kms on a single charge. The cabin combines a modern design with generous space and technologies that complement its zero-emissions powertrain. The e-Niro will be manufactured at Kia’s Hwasung manufacturing facility in Korea.
