2014 Kia Ceed Gt
Kia Ceed GT
The all-new high-performance Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT are the sword’s near performance-focused product cars always. Both models characteristic a new turbocharged locomotive, unequaled outside and upcountry excogitation enhancements, and a suspension that entertains the enthusiastic driver.
The two new GT models are powered by a new edition of Kia’s 1.6-litre GDI (petrol orchestrate injectant) locomotive weaponed with a twin-scroll turbocharger and reinforced intimate components. Powerfulness and torsion outputs are dramatically increased (compared with the non-turbo locomotive), with utmost exponent up 51% to 204 ps, and torsion up 61% to 265 Nm.
Fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox as stock, the front-wheel effort GT models can speed from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.7 seconds and ambit a top speeding of 230 km/h. Thanks to maximal locomotive torsion beingness highly-developed from fair 1,750 rpm, in-gear speedup is extremely reactive with 60-100 km/h in fourthly train in 5.4 seconds, 80-120 km/h in 5th cogwheel in 7.3 seconds and 80-120 km/h in 6th train in 8.8 seconds.
“Our new Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT spotlight the variety of our stream ware line-up and corroborate the rude elaboration of the mark into the execution car commercialise, an significant footstep forward-moving for Kia,” comments Michael Colewort, Ceo, Kia Motors Europe.

Indoors, the GT models are furnished with Recaro sports seating, debase pedals, bespoken coat materials and a seven-inch, racing-car divine TFT instrumentate bundle to produce an piquant, performance-oriented atmosphere for the driver and passengers. First on a Kia, the pawn bunch can be customised by the driver with a quality of two layouts – ‘linear’ style, exhibit a traditional speedometer and actuate info, and ‘GT’ fashion, which shows the fomite’s speeding in expectant, lily-livered figures and gauges displaying locomotive torsion and turbo-boost.
Handling perfected on road and track
The GT powertrain and bod were earlier engineered in Korea so highly-developed during all-encompassing route and racetrack examination in Europe. With rally and treatment fine-tuned for European roadstead, the examination syllabus included 160,000 km on German autobahns at an medium upper of 150 km/h.
The GT models besides undertook 480 laps of the 21 km Nürburgring Nordschleife lap for enduringness examination.

Subsequent developments to the suspension control that the high-pitched operation credential of the GT models are matched by olympian dynamical characteristics, patch retaining the great rag timber of the pro_cee’d and cee’d. This way both cars reinforce the enthusiastic driver patch besides existence easily suitable for unremarkable drive.
Crossways both models, battlefront muffler rigorousness has been increased by 30% in recoil and 10% in densification, piece at the bum the increases are 50% in recoil and 200% in condensation. Springiness rates deliver likewise been stiffened by 10% at the battlefront and ass, the ass anti-roll bar has increased in heaviness from 18 mm to 19 mm, and the strawman hanging benefits from stiffer bushings. These changes allowed Kia engineers to tighten understeer and consistency bowl in rescript to meliorate the cars’ manipulation characteristics.
Insidious re-tuning of the ABS scheme, collectively the adjustment of wider 225/40 R18 Michelin tyres, likewise brand the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT the quickest fillet variants of the pop cee’d grasp, braking from 100-to-0 km/h in 36.4 metres.
The locomotive vocalize has besides been addressed by Kia engineers, with inlet and tucker systems specifically tuned to pay GT models a sportier locomotive and release bill. Nether difficult speedup betwixt 1,000 and 4,000 rpm, a sportier fumes shade has been increased by 10dB o’er the stand example, achieved by up the airflow done the primary damper and reduction the air consumption route.
Adding to the cee’d family line-up
The new pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT are reinforced on the like yield lines at Kia’s Zilina deftness as the veritable five-door cee’d and three-door pro_cee’d, the latter low launched at the 2012 Paris Outside Motive Shew as the tierce appendage of the s multiplication Kia cee’d sept.
Communion many key attributes with the veritable models upon which they are based, both the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT sustain an boilersuit distance (4310 mm), breadth (1780 mm) and wheelbase (2650 mm) which are too the like as touchstone models. For the pro_cee’d and pro_cee’d GT, the roofline is lowered by 40 mm, the B-pillar is touched backrest by 220 mm, the english panels arse the B-pillar are new, as are the english windows, C-pillar, tailboard, taillight clusters and back bumper.
