The 2019 Kia Pro_Cee'd made its public debut at the Paris Motor Show this month. Production of the new model will commence in November, and it will launch in Europe in Q1, 2019. The new model sits snugly between the Cee'd and the Sportswagon.
Speaking on the 2019 Kia Pro_Cee'd, Emilio Herrera, Chief Operating Officer for Kia Motors Europe, said
The Pro_Cee'd is a car that represents everything Kia stands for. This beautiful shooting brake body offers drivers an unmatched combination of design, space and versatility, representing a unique proposition in the mid-size family car segment. Engineered on European roads, for European drivers, the Pro_Cee'd will be engaging to drive. Built in Europe, to the highest standards of production, it also offers owners the reassurance of Kia's unique 7-Year, 100,000-mile warranty.
The new model is the production-spec version of the concept that was unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It will be sold in a shooting brake and a GT version. For the new-gen Kia Pro_Cee'd, the carmaker has done away with the three-door coupe body format in favour of a more practical body style. The latest-gen will be sold only in GT Line and GT models.
Powering the 2019 Kia Pro_Cee'd are the same range of motors that power the Ceed line. These include 1.0- and 1.4-liter petrol and 1.6-liter diesel engines, along with a punchy 1.6-liter direct injection turbo-petrol motor for the GT variant. Transmission options include a six-speed manual and a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic.
The 2019 Kia Pro_Cee'd measures 4,604 mm in length, 1,800 mm in width, and 1,422 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,650 mm. The new model offers 594-litres of boot space with all the seats in place.
