Performance & drive
What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is
The only choice of engine in the Kia ProCeed line-up is a turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol with 158bhp, and you get it with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The engine can suffer with some initial hesitation at low revs, and despite being more potent on paper than the equivalent 1.5 found in the Volkswagen Golf Estate (0-60mph takes 8.3sec), you need to thrash the ProCeed for a quick burst of pace. It's reasonably flexible once you’ve wound it up, though.
