Kia Ceed (2013)


CARBARN | Kia Ceed (2013) | In developing new cee'd, Kia's engineers had a strong focus on reducing fuel consumption and emissions without sacrificing power output or engine response. Depending on individual market preferences, the new cee'd will be available with a wide choice of engines offering power outputs from 90 to 135 ps. Across most of Western Europe there will be two petrol engines - a 1.4 and a 1.6 GDI MPI producing 100 ps and 135 respectively - plus two Diesels - a 1.4 WGT with an output of 90 ps and 1.6 VGT diesel Offered in two states of tune ( 110 and 128 ps). Certain markets in Europe will also offer a 1.6 MPI petrol unit producing 130 ps.


The most powerful, the 1.6-liter GDI Gamma engine introduced in the Kia Sportage, features direct injection to maximise power (135 ps) and torque (165 Nm) while minimizing fuel consumption and emissions. All engines will be Offered with a choice of manual or automatic six-speed transmissions. Depending on version, The 1.6 GDI will also be available with Kia's all-new six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), the which improves fuel efficiency and delivers smooth automatic gear shifts for maximum comfort.



The DCT combines two manual transmissions within a single housing, each with its own dry clutch. One transmission shaft is dedicated to 2nd, 4th, 6th and reverse gear, while the other operates with 1st, 3rd and 5th gears. Electric motor-driven actuators controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) execute gear selection and clutch engagement, resulting in swift and precise gear changes and uninterrupted transfer torque to the driven wheels, with a minimum of the efficiency loss normally associated with conventional Automatics ( with a torque converter). As with other Kia models in Europe, new cee'd will be available with fuel-saving technologies developed under the company's EcoDynamics ™ sub-brand to optimize efficiency and lower emissions.  Higher quality cabin materials and a broader range of high-tech equipment will Ensure the interior of the new cee'd premium matches the exterior appearance.


Available features will include enhanced Instrumentation with a TFT 'Supervision' Cluster delivering aspects of high-definition resolution clarity of the instrument binnacle, dual-zone climate control, powered driver's seat adjustment with memory and a full length (1.045 mm long) powered panoramic glass sunroof . This features front, side and rear sensors and automatic steering control by an on-board computer to Safely perform parallel parking. Kia Continues to Make safety a top priority and the new cee'd features advanced active and passive safety technologies to Ensure maximum protection for its occupants and other road users. Available active safety features will include ESP (Electronic Stability Program), ABS (anti-lock braking system), BAS (emergency Brake Assist System), HAC (Hill Assist Control) to Prevent roll-back, VSM (Vehicle Stability Management) and ESS (Emergency Stop Signal) the which flashes the brake lights when the system detects the driver is making That an emergency stop. Side impact protection is enhanced with 50 per cent Thicker door beams, plus a roof cross-member Stronger Between the B-pillars and side sills made from ultra high-tensile steel. Each new cee'd is fitted as standard with six airbags - front, front side and full length curtain.
