New Kia Cee’d GT Turbo: First photo arrivesSat, 09 Feb 2013 00:00:00 -0800
We have the first photo of the 5-door Kia Cee’d GT – a Cee’d with the engine from the Hyundai Veloster Turbo – ahead of a 2013 Geneva reveal.
We already know that Kia are planning to launch the 3-door Pro_Cee’d GT with the engine from the Veloster Turbo because they’ve told us, and they’ve sent us some details of its specification and photos too.
We also know that there will be a 5-door Kia Cee’d GT – with the same Turbo engine – although so far Kia hasn’t sent us details or photos. But that’s probably about to change as the first photos of the Kia Cee’d GT leak out ahead of an official reveal.
Surprisingly, the Cee’d looks every bit as convincing as its 3-door Pro_Cee’d GT sibling with the new aggressive nose, big air intakes, new grill, rear spoiler and 18″ alloys as its coupe counterpart. In fact, dare we say it looks better?
Underpinning the Cee’d GT will be the same 1.6 litre GDI turbocharged engine producing 201bhp and 195lb/ft of torque which, in the Pro_Cee’d GT at least, manages a quite warm – if not exactly hot – 0-62mph of 7.9 seconds.
With the first photo of the new Kia Cee’d GT in the wild it seems likely Kia will pay attention and deliver full details shortly.
