The company Kia will launch in the series a new modification of the third generation Ceed model, which will receive a body type “Shooting Brake”. The premiere of the car will be held in autumn at the Paris Motor Show. This is referring to the director of product planning of the South Korean brand David Labrosse said the publication of Auto Week.
A prototype of this model was shown in September last year at the motor show in Frankfurt. The concept car, called the Proceed, was created in the European design studio Kia. The developers themselves call the concept “an elongated hot-hat.
The line of engines is not yet called. The standard hatchback and the station wagon are equipped with a 1.4-liter 100-strong atmos- phere, a one-liter unit with a capacity of 120 powers, and a 1.4 turbo engine that produces 140 forces. The diesel range is represented by 1.6-liter motors with 115 and 136 hp. Transmission is a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission with two clutches.
In 2019, the model will have a modification with a combined power plant, which will operate under the mild hybrid (soft hybrid) scheme. The internal combustion engine will work together with the 48-volt on-board power grid, which will improve fuel economy and reduce harmful emissions.
