Previewed in a sketch released the last week, today we have seen another video that is related to the other one we have seen two days ago. Looks like Kia let testing the pre-production car to some bloggers/influencers as we have seen this video and pictures along of Instagram & Youtube.
On this spy video we can see the All-New Kia Proceed Shooting Brake with less camouflage (they used a thin “GT” stickers to cover the bodywork) as well as a the interior, with a D-cut steering wheel, which apart from that is finally the same as the Ceed.
The Youtuber, Vadim Ovsiankin, drove the car around Frankfurt area and despite you can imagine, this GT variant is automatic instead of manual, and we wonder could be using the 7-speed in-house DCT as we have seen “D7” on the dashboard.
But the biggest clue that we are in front of Proceed Shooting Brake GT variant is the chromed insert on the steering wheel (picture above).
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.
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.
PS: we used the pictures extracted from Vadim’s video, but due we take our time to edit, and look for the better one so that’s is why we have used our watermark.
