We already showed the first spy pictures of the facelift for the cee’d family scheduled to debut in September at the 2015 Paris Motor Show. Now it’s time for some photos from the Artic Circle where Kia started testing the more powerful variant available, the cee’d GT.
[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]We expect some modest changes to the bumpers as well as the front grille, like the cee’d. We are also going to see some changes in the front and rear lights graphics.
The “ice-cubed” LED in the front bumper, somehow a trademark of the GT variants will stay as we can see on the picture attached in the gallery below. We can also spotted red brake calipers (like in the current one), a dual exhaust system and Kia Forte SX models alloy wheels.
Under the hood, its seems like Kia is using the same turbocharged 1.6-liter T-GDi engine delivering 204 hp and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque. For the first time and as we announced, the cee’d GT will be available with a 7-speed Dual Clutch automatic transmission (DCT).
Hope the new 7 speed dct box will be fully automatic unlike the current so-called 6 speed auto which is only semi-auto , and require the 7 speed to be available on a CEED 2 not troublesome 4 tech
