Set to make its public debut next month in Geneva, the Kia Cee’d GT Line has been unveiled over the web, at the moment.
The model in question will be positioned between the standard versions and the range topping GT variant and it is the newest addition to the Cee’d range. This has been designed for those who appeal to the styling of the range topping variant but don’t want to pay the added premium which is coming with the 1.6 liter turbocharged gasoline engine, rated at 204 HP.
That being said, the new Kia Cee’d GT Line is packing a 1.0 liter turbocharged 3-cylinder unit under its hood, which is capable of producing 120 HP (88 kW) and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft) of torque. The 1.6L CRDi diesel aimed towards the GT Line has been updated too and it is now rated at 133 HP (98 k)W and 285 Nm (210 lb-ft) of torque, from the previous 128 HP (94 kW) and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque.
The Kia Cee’d GT Line is available in coupe, hatchback and wagon body styles and it is coming with the 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the same one from the facelifted Hyundai i30. This will only be offered for the diesel unit. Some of the other features found on it include the LED DRLs, the modified front and rear bumpers, the GT side sill moldings, LED taillights, dual exhaust setup, new grey, white and black upholstery with grey stitching, the GT Line logos, chrome trim around the air vents, illumination for the USB and AUX ports and several other tweaks. The model will arrive in dealerships in the 4th quarter of 2015.
