The Kia pro_cee’d sits a full 40 mm lower than the five-door cee’d – and raised shoulder line has resulted in a significantly tighter glasshouse, and the resulting wedge-like profile is further enhanced by the bold lateral crease that runs its way across the car’s flanks.
Those bold wheelarches are filled with eye-catching 17-inch multi-spoke lightweight alloy wheels, wrapped in sticky, low-profile tyres. A split twin-exhaust layout with large diameter outlet pipes lend further visual weight to the Kia pro_cee’d’s performance potential.
The car also features a leaner and more assertive version of Kia’s ‘tiger’ grille than that found on the cee’d. Framed in a dark silver metallic finish, it is linked to the headlamps to further emphasise the muscular width of the Kia pro_cee’d.
Despite its overt athleticism the Kia pro_cee’d shares its wheelbase and tracks with its five-door relative, which means versatility is uncompromised – both luggage capacity and rear space are virtually identical to those of the five-door cee’d.
