On the pedestrian protection program, the hot hatch scored 22 points out of a possible 36, being rated as “acceptable”.

Standard safety features found on the Kia Pro_cee’d GT include the seatbelt reminders for all occupants, the electronic stability control, the six airbags, two front, two side and side curtains, daytime running lights, rear parking sensors, hill start assist and automatic headlights, amongst others. Prices for the model in Australia start from 29,990 AUD.

The Kia Pro_cee’d GT has an aggressive body kit, a revised front grille, a dual exhaust system, 18-inch alloy wheels and much more. It’s taking its power from a 204 HP (150 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque 1.6 liter GDi turbo engine, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 7.7 seconds and top speed stands at 230 km/h.
