GT Line Kia show its body line
Combintion of the Kia Ceed with the Kia Ceed GT you get the Kia Ceed GT Line. Unveiled at the 2018 Paris auto show, the Kia Ceed GT Line shares its basic look with the 201-horsepower (150-kilowatt) Ceed GT but shares its lot of powertrain options with the run-of-the-mill Ceed.
Optional on the Ceed hatchback and wagon, and standard on the low-slung ProCeed, the GT Line kit includes;
- chrome and gloss-black details on the grille,
- trim-specific 17-inch wheels (18 inchers are optional), and
- more aggressive front and rear fascias.
Power comes courtesy of either a 118-horsepower (88-kilowatt) turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, a 138-hp (103-kw) turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine, or a diesel-drinking turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, the latter of which is offered in both 113-hp (84-kw) and 134-hp (100-kw) grades. The slinkier ProCeed, however, is only available with the 138-hp (103-kw) gas engine or the 134-hp (100-kw) diesel. A six-speed manual is standard across the board, although a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is available on the four-cylinder (gas and diesel) engines.
Like the standard Ceed, the GT Line is available with a number of modern niceties, including a 7.0- or 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a heated windshield, automatic high-beam headlights, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. The Kia Ceed GT Line goes on sale in Europe at the beginning of the year. Expect the Ceed GT Line to be moderately more expensive than its less stylish counterpart, but notably cheaper than the more powerful Ceed and ProCeed GT.
