ALL-NEW CEED ‘GT’ AND ‘GT-LINE’ AVAILABLE AT GRENSON KIA IN CREWE
The all-new Kia Ceed ‘GT’ is more accomplished and fun-to-drive than ever and is available now at GRENSON KIA, alongside the all-new ProCeed ‘GT’ and Ceed ‘GT-Line’.
The original cee'd ‘GT’ and pro_cee'd ‘GT’ were launched in 2013, representing the first ever performance hatchbacks from a Korean brand. The Kia Ceed ‘GT’ picks up where its predecessors left off, with an assured, engaging drive and a powerful 1.6-litre turbocharged engine, as well as a comprehensive range of comfort, safety and convenience technologies.
Phil Jones, Sales Manager at Grenson KIA comments: “The all-new Ceed ‘GT’ is a great addition to the Ceed family – it’s a great model for families but has a wider appeal with its sporty design, turbocharged power, greater agility and grip. We can’t wait for our customers to test drive the cars for themselves.”
The Kia Ceed ‘GT-Line’ is available with a choice of powertrains: Kia's 118bhp 1.0-litre and 138bhp 1.4-litre T-GDi (Turbocharged Gasoline Direct injection) engines, or the 134bhp 1.6-litre 'Smartstream' CRDi (Common-Rail Direct injection) diesel engine. The downsized range of powertrains contribute to the car's agile handling characteristics. An even higher specification Ceed ‘GT-Line S’ model features the 138bhp 1.4-litre T-GDi powerplant paired exclusively to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
For many drivers, a performance hatchback has to be able to fit seamlessly into their daily lives and it may be the only car they have access to. Practicality is therefore essential - and the Ceed ‘GT’ model is more practical than most, featuring the same large 395-litre boot as non-‘GT’ variants of the Ceed.
The ‘GT’ model is fitted with the same fully-independent suspension hardware as the Ceed. However, the half-year of additional fine-tuning to the suspension geometry has rendered it more agile and more engaging to drive.
In addition, the standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system has been carefully retuned to offer keener drivers more freedom to exploit the increased agility and enhance the yaw rate of the rear axle. Kia's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system is also standard, as well as Torque Vectoring by Braking. This additional electronic driver support feature intelligently brakes the inside wheels to reduce understeer around corners - making the Ceed ‘GT’ more enjoyable and confidence-inspiring to drive on the type of winding lanes on which it has been developed.
The model offers greater potential for comfortable motorway cruising than many other more extreme hot hatches. Kia's engineers have been careful to retain much of the comfort and unwavering stability that characterises the standard Ceed and other Kia vehicles, such as the Stinger, when travelling at high speeds.
The Kia Ceed ‘GT’ is paired with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. With a top speed of 143mph, acceleration to 62mph is completed in just 7.2 seconds, while CO2 emissions of 155g/km (NEDC 2.0) result in a combined WLTP fuel economy figure of 38.2mpg.
The Kia Ceed ‘GT’ provides owners and occupants with a wide range of technologies designed to make road travel as easy, comfortable and safe as possible.
The standard 8.0-inch 'floating' touchscreen satellite navigation system features Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom®. The system enables full smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay™ (for iPhone 5 and onwards) and Android Auto™ (for Android phones running 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher). Standard technologies include full Bluetooth® smartphone integration, automatic lights, keyless entry and heated front seats.
In addition to the car's six standard airbags, advanced driver assistance technologies enhance occupant protection, using active safety systems to mitigate the risk of collisions. Standard safety technologies include High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist - City. Additional technologies include Smart Parking Assist and pedestrian recognition for the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system.
Every Ceed is equipped as standard with Kia's Vehicle Stability Management (VSM). VSM ensures stability when braking and cornering by controlling the car's Electronic Stability Control (ESC) if it detects a loss of traction.
In keeping with every Kia, the all-new Ceed ‘GT’ and ‘GT-Line’ comes with the company’s unique seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty, subject to certain wear and tear conditions. The warranty is fully transferable should the car be sold before the time or mileage limits have been reached. The Ceed ‘GT’ and ‘GT-Line’ is also available with ‘Kia Care’ service plans, which have been developed to provide customers with a wide range of service plan options for any Kia model within the first seven years of the vehicle’s life – matching its industry-leading seven-year warranty. For more information on Kia’s seven year warranty and Kia Care plans, please speak to an advisor at GRENSON KIA.
The Ceed ‘GT’ is available from GRENSON KIA priced at £25,353 and the Ceed ‘GT-Line’ from £21,535.
