Accessibility & Motability

Usability for people with disability or their carers

Access

The Kia Proceed’s doors open to 66 degrees, so they’re well out of the way when you need them to be.

That said, the boot floor is completely flat, even when the rear seats are folded down. If you have to take a wheelchair on your travels, you’ll be able to get it into the boot as long as you fold it down first. Unfortunately, the Proceed isn’t capable of carrying a chair unfolded, even with the back seats lowered.

The seats split 60/40 in most models, so you can carry luggage while there’s a back-seat passenger. Top-spec models have a 40/20/40 split seat, which enhances flexibility.

Ease of use and options

There are a few engines available with an automatic gearbox for the Proceed, but the best by far is the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol. It develops a reasonable 138bhp, which is enough for driving with a full load as long as you’re not in too much of a hurry.

The 1.6 diesel will be decently economical if you do longer journeys, but again you won’t be getting anywhere in a rush, and it sounds pretty wheezy when you ask it to put in a shift.

Inside the Proceed, you get a decent amount of space around in the front, and lots of adjustment for the steering wheel and seat. You should be able to get comfortable fairly easily.

That swoopy profile does compromise your over-the-shoulder view, though, which makes parking tricky, so you’ll be glad of the standard reversing camera and rear parking sensors. Lane-keep assist and automatic full beam headlights are standard too, and the 8.0in central infotainment touchscreen has smartphone mirroring. We also like that the screen is mounted high on the dash as it is easy to read on the move.
