Previewed in a sketch released the last week, today we have seen at Motor1.com, a spy video of the All-New Kia Proceed Shooting Brake with very less camouflage that allows us to finally saw its lines, and we like what we have seen.
Even if this car still has a lot of camouflage this is thinner and we can take a deeper look to the rear end, which is similar to the recent sketch with a full-width LED strip on the tailgate, and aggresive rear bumper, the side sills and the bigger exhaust pipes on each side.
There are also some exterior highlights, like the new chrome detail on the C-pilar (picture below) as well as bigger wheels and brakes with red calipers, but the biggest clue that we are in front of Proceed Shooting Brake GT variant is the two big exhaust pipes that I hope they are not fake.
Power is expected to come from a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbo delivering some 200 horsepower or maybe add a gasoline turbo engine with an electric motor (to be confirmed). But that’s not all, Kia is also working on the suspension in order to improve handling and balance, at the Green Hell.
The new ProCeed follows the design blueprint laid down by the 2017 Kia Proceed Concept, and will offer drivers an unparalleled combination of design and versatility. Designed, developed and engineered exclusively for Europe, it represents a unique proposition in the mid-size family car segment.
The new Kia ProCeed will be revealed at an event on 13 September, and make its public debut at the 2018 Mondial de l’Auto in Paris on 2 October.
