Kia has launched a new flagship model for its Procee’d range.
The Procee’d 4 comes with an uprated 126bhp version of the 1.6-litre diesel engine that’s used in other versions of the car.
It’s capable of hitting 60mph in just over 10 seconds, about a second quicker than the 114bhp models. However, there’s no penalty in economy or emissions, because it averages the same 62.8mpg and emits the 119g/km CO2 of the less powerful units.
Standard equipment on the new car includes 17-inch alloys, tinted glass, full black leather upholstery and cruise control with steering wheel-mounted controls. For the first time in the range, sat-nav is also standard – in this case, a fully integrated system with a seven-inch touch-screen and Bluetooth.
The car is available now for £18,495, making it more than £1700 dearer than the existing Procee’d 3. Like all Kias, it is covered by a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
