Kia's Procee'd GT will go on sale from July priced at £19,995.
The car is powered by a 201bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre T-GDi engine and mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Kia says the Procee'd GT is its most performance-orientated car to date, able to reach a top speed of 143mph and accelerating from 0-60mph in 7.4sec.
Steering has been tuned to give a more direct feel over the standard car, and the addition of Kia's Flex Steer function allows drivers to choose from three power-assistance settings.
Braking force is provided by 300mm ventilated disks at the front, and 262mm at the rear - the largest brakes fitted to any of the Cee'd range.
Two trim lines - GT and GT tech - offer tiered equipment packages. The base-spec GT gives LED DRLs and 18-inch alloy wheels, with plenty of GT interior stitching and standard features like air conditioning, rear parking sensors, and a Bluetooth-equipped stereo.
GT tech trim adds a seven-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and keyless entry. Both trim levels get Recaro sports seats as standard.
