Currently reading: Paris motor show 2012: New Kia Procee'd for Paris reveal
Kia has given its three-door Procee'd hatchback a more sporting appearance and also added the revisions which appeared on the standard Cee'd

Kia has revealed its new three-door Cee’d ahead of its debut at the Paris motor show. The Kia Procee’d is due to reach UK showrooms in spring 2013.

The model now completes the three-strong Cee’d line-up, joining five-door hatchback and estate models.

The design of Kia’s rakish three-door hatchback is significantly sportier than the previous model and Kia says it “features all of the improvements” to the recently-launched five-door Cee’d and Sportwagon estate. That means a more upmarket interior, multi-link rear suspension and a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

The engine line-up is expected to mirror the five-door Cee’d’s range of 98bhp 1.4 and 133bhp 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 1.6-litre diesel developing 125bhp. Insiders have previously hinted there will be a hot turbocharged 1.6 model at the top of the range with around 200bhp designed to give the three-door Cee’d the performance credibility to match its looks.

Lovely

What a great looking car.  Kia really are coming on leaps and bounds.

I do seem to remember Kia saying that they were going to drop the Veloster turbo engine into this, which is going to make this a very desirable car.

hmmm

The previous model reminded me of the previous GTC and I thought it was just a coincidence. The new model is a lot more similar to the new GTC. It seems Kia is thinking Astra when designing their car. Now lets see if it has worthwhile driving dynamics.

I'm disappointed with this.

I'm disappointed with this. The bit of chrome between the headlights and grille looks cheap, and the small glass area at the back makes it look too heavy. Wonder if they got the idea for the stuck on black plastic panel on the back bumper from the Punto Evo?
