Kia Pro Ceed Review

One should not underestimate the seemingly derivative design elements of the Kia Procee’d. It is a design pioneer for the manufacturer, being the first of its kind to add a function to features such as the lead with allure. It also stands out among outer C-segment hatch models as a three-door vehicle that’s vastly different from its five-door relatives. Read on to know how else the Kia Pro Ceed fares in terms of its new branding, design, and performance.

Pros

The three and five-door Pro Cee’d models only share the front wings and bonnet as its common elements. Every other element is unique to its designated structure. The latest Procee’d boasts of a sleeker profile thanks to its slimmer glasshouse and lower roofline. As a result, the model sports a more distinct differentiation between itself and the typical hatchback. Another distinctive addition is the extra 15mm to the total length, which along with the sleek lines, gives the Pro Ceed’s a more modern appeal. The newest model is also much lighter at 84kg and still provides decent performance and fuel economy to its new weight. Another great new addition is the Kia’s independent rear suspension. The architecture is similar to the previous model but the latest model provides a keener drive. Plus some models are fitted into 17-inch wheels that are able to uprate the dampers. You can also expect a quicker response from the wheel thanks to the electric power-assisted steering.

The three-door model’s interior shares a lot of similarities to the five-door. Loyalists will appreciate the absence of such a deviation as the three-door still retains the practical features of the cabin. Not that the three-door Kia Pro Ceed is without additional features: the revised roofline gives the cabin a sportier atmosphere and a more focused feel. Height adjustment is also more flexible for drivers of any size or shape. Luggage space is adequate at 340 litres and can be expanded to 1130 litres.

The Kia Pro Ceed’s 1.6-litre diesel engine is available in three power outputs. The 114bhp powered engine develops a peak power at 4000rpm and its peak torque of 188lb ft ranging from 1900 to 2750rpm. The power is well-distributed all throughout and lag is kept at a minimum even on low revs. Plus the engine is able to spin to as much as 5000 rpm. The 60mph sprint is made at an impressive 10.6 seconds.

Cons

The firmer dampers on the three-door Pro Ceed compromises the fluidity expected of such a standard car. The ride is comfortable enough but you’ll probably want the drive to be suppler than it actually is. The electrically assisted power steering works well with the 17-inch wheels but tends to lessen when you go at higher speeds and increases as you go on slower speeds. The 16-inch wheels are better recommended given the assistance system of the latest model. The interior could also use some improvement in the front seat area. Individuals on the passenger side will have problems sliding the front seat forward, which is only easily adjustable from the driver’s side.
