Kia Pro ceed GT


It might be the most beautiful hatch I’ve ever seen, the Kia pro_cee’d GT, a model made just for the European market. It is definitely the most gorgeous South Korean car my eyes have spied (and also the worst named).

Its roof is low, lower than any production car I am aware of. Looking at forces you to wonder just what the visibility is like from the inside. The slope of its windshield is barely any different than the slight slope of its hood. Its wheels are gloriously large, while its huge air intake could make a whale shark look away in shame.

Under its hood, the wickedly smooth pro_cee’d GT (that’s like typing a password :)) sports a 1.6-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged four that pumps out more than 200 horses. This, by the way, is the same engine found in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

Thankfully, there is a bit of old school in the car as well. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission.
