Kia unveiled a major package of advancements to the entire European-designed, European-engineered and European-made cee’d family. The revisions, which affect the five-door cee’d, three-door pro_cee’d, spacious cee’d Sportswagon and sporty cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT, introduce new powertrains bringing major improvements in fuel consumption and emissions, modified chassis settings and styling and trim changes.

The two GT models have sports-tuned suspension and now feature larger front brake discs, up from 16 inches in diameter to 17 inches, and stylish new 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/40ZR18 Michelin Sport tyres. The larger front brake discs help to shorten the stopping distance from 62mph from 36.4 metres to 35.2 metres.

New for the 2016 GT models is an electric sound generator which delivers an even more rich and exciting engine note into the cabin. When activated via a ‘GT’ button on the steering wheel, the traditional analogue speedometer changes to a digital numerical display showing turbo and torque gauges. The steering wheel has a new D-shaped rim and is trimmed in leather with perforated grips and red stitching.
