Kia’s hot hatch Ceed has been highly successful in Europe, a dream market for that kind of cars. Based on that, they have decided to offer a GT version, intended for more mature buyers. The GT shares the same aggressive look with its hot hatch cousin, with 17- or 19-inch wheels, reworked chrome contoured grill, ‘ice-cube’ LED fog lamps, and new front and rear bumpers.

The interior is done in a sports fashion, with black lining, sport seats, and metallic details. The engine options are the same as in regular Ceed, 1.0-liter three-cylinder T-GDi engine with 120 horsepower, or a more powerful 1.4-liter four-cylinder T-GDi delivering 140 horsepower. Both engines are turbocharged. Customers can also opt for a turbo diesel version, 1.6-liter CRDi with either 115 or 136 metric horsepower. 2021 Toyota 4Runner – What are the changes
Transmission is either standard 6-speed manual gearbox or a dual-clutch seven-speed one. The dual clutch version isn’t available for the smallest 3-cylinder engine.
According to Kia, the GT line has been designed specifically for the European market, promising agility and power on both winding roads and narrow city streets. It will be available on 5-door hatch and Sportwagon versions only, but it will come as standard on ProCeed models.
The GT internal equipment is very generous and comes with many cutting-edge technologies. It is sporting JBL sound system and either a 7.0-inch touchscreen audio system or 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Both options come in Apple and Android versions. Other amenities include a heated windscreen, lane keeping assist and forward collision avoidance assist, a wireless phone charger, and high beam assist. Buyers can choose optional heated and cooled seats are available, as well as smart cruise control with stop and go functionality (on automatic models), and rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.
