Kia has unveiled today the cee’d GT Line at the 85 th Geneva Motor Show, prior to going on sale in the fourth quarter of 2015.
The GT Line combines the appealing design of the fully fledged GT line with the engine lineup of the regular cee’d. It will be available for all three body styles (hatchback, coupe and wagon) and aside from the usual engine it’s going to be offered with a newly developed three-cylinder, 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline motor rated at 120 HP (88 kW) and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft) of torque.
The familiar 1.6-liter CRDi has also been revised and now generates 133 HP (98 kW) and 285 Nm (210 lb-ft), up from the previous 128 HP & 265 Nm. This engine can now be optionally coupled to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox which promises increased smoothness and comfort in automatic mode and faster gear changes & lower fuel consumption in manual mode.
All cee’d GT Line models will get unique 17-inch alloy wheels, ice cube LED DRLs and an enhanced body while on the inside there are GT Line-specific upholsteries, steering wheel, aluminum pedals, new start/stop button, illuminated USB & AUX ports, new chrome trim and piano black accents.
Kia says the cee’d GT Line will go on sale in Q4 2015.
