Top Gear has recently went for a spin in the brand new Kia Pro_Cee’d GT and the result might be a bit disappointing for those of you who are considering buying one.
After it was officially presented to the public in a world premiere, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show last week, the Kia Pro_Cee’d GT is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time by guys at Top Gear, who have recently went for a spin in Kia’s first ever hot hatch. The Kia Pro_Cee’d GT is technically a direct rival for the Opel Astra OPC / Vauxhall Astra VXR, he VW Golf GTI, the Renault Megan RS or the Ford Focus ST.
The Kia Pro_Cee’d GT is powered by a 1.6 liter GDi turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 204 HP (150 kW) and it has a peak torque of 265 Nm (195 lb-ft), mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration takes 7.7 seconds and top speed is 230 km/h. The fuel consumption in the Kia Pro_Cee’d GT stands at 7.4 L / 100 km and the CO2 emissions stop at 171 g/km.
