In this respect, the Proceed is much like the five-door Ceed, which means the layout of the dashboard is pretty easy to understand and there’s a good range of seat and wheel adjustment to help you get comfortable. The only real difference is that over-the-shoulder vision is much worse in the Proceed, due to its thicker rear pillars and the upsweep of its rear side windows.
Kia Proceed space & practicality
There’s enough space for a couple of six-footers in the back and, unlike most of its rivals, the Proceed has a central rear seatbelt, so a third person can squeeze in for short journeys. As a bonus, you don’t have to reset your driving position every time you let someone in and out, thanks to a memory function on the front seats. The well shaped boot can swallow a sizeable 380 litres of luggage.
Kia Proceed equipment
Entry-level S-spec cars come with all the equipment you need, including 16in alloy wheels, air-con, cruise control, Bluetooth, reversing sensors and an iPod-compatible stereo with steering wheel-mounted controls. Pricier SE spec brings 17in alloys, dual-zone climate control, a touch-screen sat-nav system and a reversing camera. The GT has a similar kit list to S models, plus sporty styling, uprated suspension and 18in alloys, while the GT Tech has lots of luxury kit.
