Kia has brought its first three-door hot hatch in Romania, the Pro_Cee’d GT, where the model has a starting price of 20,650 euros.

The first ever hot hatch produced by Kia is named the Pro_Cee’d GT, and this is the three-door version of the Cee’d GT. The model has been launched in Romania where its starting price has been set at 20,650 euros. Kia hopes to steal some of the customers currently looking into a Megane RS, a VW Golf, a Ford Focus ST or an Opel Astra OPC with its newest creation and judging by its starting price and good looks, this might just happen.

The Kia Pro_Cee’d GT has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model has an aggressive body kit, revised grille, new bumpers, dual exhaust system, 18-inch alloy wheels, Recaro seats and much more. Power is being provided by the 1.6 liter GDi turbo engine, producing 204 HP (150 kW) and 265 Nm of torque (195 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a six-speed manual transmission which is allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.7 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 230 km/h.
