Scheduled to begin no later than September 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 2018 Kia Cee’d is currently being tested in Germany in pre-production. The third generation model will share many of its pieces with the all-new-to-2017 Hyundai i30.
2018 Kia Pro Cee’d Gt Design
Seen here is the brand new kia pro cee’d spotted as a heavily camouflaged prototype of the tailgate with four LED headlights and wider taillights with a flatter shape. Just as before, the cee’d will be a sister model of the Hyundai i30 from where it will inherit most material, but not the design. A minor dent in size as was the case with the i30 is expected but this will not increase the weight of the car as the switch to new sub-trends will actually bring a diet.

Taken to the camera for the first time is the inner cabin, which represents a major departure from the cee’d output. At the same time, the dashboard layout is also significantly different from what the new i30 has (pictured above on the right). You could say that the formatting of the buttons is inspired by the last Sportage, while the small screen for the infotainment system indicates that we are dealing with a variant of low specification. Zooming on the digital display in the instrument cluster reveals in part the design of the car, including the considerably wide taillights.
2018 Kia Pro Cee’d Gt Engine
On the front of the engine, the range will consist of the turbocharged 1.0 T-GDi three-cylinder, turbo 1.4 T-GDi four-cylinder, 1.6 turbo diesel CRDi and a freely vacuumed MPI 1.4 liter with 100 hp (99 horsepower ) Faucet. A 7-speed automatic transmission should be offered on the 1.4 T-GDi (140 hp / 138 hp), 1.6 CRDi 110 PS and 1.6 CRDi 136 hp. A GT brand hot hatch is also in preparation, but will go on sale in 2018.
2018 Kia Pro Cee’d Gt Release Date
Kia is expected to debut the new cee’d (Forte in the US) in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but only the five-door hatchback. Practical sportwagon and stylish procee’d are due out in 2018. Further down the line, the hatch and coupe will receive GT’s sporting treatment.
