At long last, the new 1.5 T-GDI MHEV petrol engine for the Kia ProCeed is here. If you are looking for a different and practical vehicle, do not miss all its details. In addition, it incorporates the long-awaited ECO distinctive of the DGT.
Many users need a practical model with a large boot, but they do not want to give up on sportiness. For this reason, manufacturers have given a twist to the traditional family, with creations such as the Mercedes-Benz CLA Shooting Brake or the Kia ProCeed. Both vehicles opt for a more dynamic aesthetic to compete against the Hyundai i30 CW, Peugeot 308 SW, Renault Mégane Sport Tourer, Seat León Sportstourer, Skoda Octavia Combi, Suzuki Swace or Volkswagen Golf Variant.
The Kia ProCeed is still a great alternative if we look for design and practicality, although it does not neglect other important aspects. And it is that the mechanical range has won integers with its latest novelty: the 140 hp 1.4 T-GDI petrol engine has given way to the new 160 hp 1.5 T-GDI with a MHEV mild hybridization system, which is why it obtains the ECO label from the DGT.
Regarding its technical data, the new Kia ProCeed 1.5 MHEV with 160 hp -253 Nm of maximum torque- accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 8.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 210 km / h. In addition, consumption is very reasonable – barely 5.7 liters / 100 km – thanks to the mild hybrid device and the seven-speed DCT automatic transmission. Another detail to take into account is the boot capacity -472 liters for the 594 liters of the rest of the range-, although it maintains the multi-link rear suspension.
All those interested in acquiring the Kia ProCeed 1.5 MHEV DCT, you should know that you have a finish at your disposal: the sports GT Line. The standard equipment does not disappoint, with items such as the six airbags, ESP with Hill Holder, assisted parking, rear view camera, wireless and USB charger, dual zone climate control, tinted windows, 12.3 digital instrument cluster, audio equipment Premium JBL, LED headlights, electric parking brake, 17 “alloy wheels, smart key, automatic lights and wipers, 10.25” touchscreen navigator and Android / Apple compatibility, aluminum pedals, electrically folding mirrors, panoramic roof and multifunction leather steering wheel with paddles.
How could it be otherwise, the security section is also very careful. Includes forward collision alert, lane keeping assistant, cruise control, fatigue detector, photosensitive interior mirror, traffic sign reader, automatic high beams and blind spot sensor.
He Kia ProCeed 1.5 MHEV 160 CV DCT GT Line has arrived in Spain with an official price of 33,700 euros. But wait, because the Korean brand includes important launch discounts -5,407 euros-, leaving the rate at a tighter amount: 28,293 euros.
