Kia pro_cee’d GT is the new rival of Golf GTI segment. Please don’t start moaning about Kia and why I mentioned in my blog. Kia is different now, it is not the same company ten years ago. If you still think, Kia has never changed and everything is the same; I assume you might be thinking the world is flat despite the proof of photos! So, we are over with this discussion.
pro_cee’d GT has one of the most interesting name. Because, it is really hard to type on keyboard! This interesting character is not limited with the keyboard, pro_cee’d GT is designed by the Peter Schreyer. He is the person who responsible for this magnificent change in Kia. Especially, Peter Schreyer’s design philosophy is focused on form follows function and every design detail of this car has a reason to be there.
Now, let’s talk about VW Golf GTI vs. pro_cee’d GT discussion, which would never end. I know Golf GTI is an iconic car, I don’t argue with that but you are not ignore the fact that pro_cee’d GT is a very good car. What I like with pro_cee’d GT is the 1.6-lt turbo petrol engine with 204 HP and 250 Nm of torque. If a car company offers a small sized engines with lots of horses packed inside means one thing, they invest on new technology. This engine accelerates pro_cee’d GT to 100 km/h in 7.7 seconds and the top speed of 230 km/h. However, it offers only manual transmission! Unfortunately, I am against manual transmissions in this era. They are old technology, they are not efficient, they reduce the ability of controlling emissions when you compare them with double clutch gearboxes! I am 32 years old and supporting automatic gearboxes since 1997. I really don’t know why the year 1997.
Anyway, if don’t have a subconscious trauma with manual gearboxes or obsessed with double clutch automatics. Kia pro_cee’d GT will offer you a great driving experience, way better price than its competitors and magnificent look. I really loved the LED fog light lights. And this looks really amazing! Don’t recall your old memories with Kia from 1998, everyone changes :)
And also, Kia pro_cee’d GT offers suede and leather upholstery :)
