Kia recently announced that a new GT Line Proceed would be added to their lineup to bridge the gap between the hot hatch GT cars and the higher spec, but slower, three-door Proceeds.
The new GT Line has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show, with prices set to be announced closer to its launch later this year, along with the Kia Optima Estate concept.
For those after the full-fat Proceed GT hot hatch, there’s some discounts available via online brokers.

The Kia Proceed GT has a classy interior, comfortable ride, great sporty looks, and it’s no slouch to drive, either. The turbocharged petrol engine covers 0-60mph in 7.4sec and can reach a top speed of 143mph.
Even though it's only a three-door, there's plenty of room for a couple of tall passengers in the back, and the boot has a sizeable 380-litre luggage capacity.
It’s more comfortable than fun, so if you’re after a hot hatch for thrills then you're better off with a Ford Fiesta ST.
Should I add any options?
Standard kit includes 18in alloys, air-con, sports seats, uprated suspension, Bluetooth, reversing sensors and an iPod-compatible stereo. The only optional extras available are different paint finishes.
Anything else I should know?
This price includes a £1500 discount that applies when you take out PCP finance at 4.9% APR representative over 36 months with a minimum deposit of 10% arranged by the dealer. If not taking this finance deal, add £1500 to the quoted price.
