Frankfurt, 28 January 2013 – The new Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT – the brand’s most performance-focused production cars ever – will enjoy their world premieres at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.

Designed in Europe under the direction of President and Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, the two debutants feature bold athletic styling, LED daytime running lights, dual-exhaust pipes, 18-inch alloy wheels and eye-catching red brake calipers.

The new turbocharged 1.6-litre GDI gasoline engine will produce 204 ps and 265 Nm, powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission and allowing the Kia pro_cee’d GT and cee’d GT to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 7.9 seconds.

Production of the newest members of cee’d family is scheduled to start at Kia’s Zilina plant in Slovakia in mid-May, and they will go on-sale across Europe from the middle of the year. Prices and specifications will be confirmed closer to the on-sale date.
