    2019 Kia ProCeed Debuts As Shooting Brake With Sporty GT Version

    2019 Kia ProCeed Debuts As Shooting Brake With Sporty GT Version

    The gorgeous ProCeed concept unveiled about a year ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show was a sign of great things to come from Kia. Those “things” have finally arrived in production form by taking the shape of a shooting brake and its sporty GT counterpart. Meet the completely new ProCeed, a more stylish family hauler than the Ceed Sportswagon without having to drastically sacrifice practicality.

    For the third-generation ProCeed, Kia is ditching the unpopular three-door coupe in favor of a more versatile body style that really doesn’t have a direct competitor. There’s the Mercedes CLA Shooting Brake, but you’ll have to fork out significantly more money for that to access the premium segment. Interestingly, the new ProCeed will be sold only in GT Line and GT models to distance itself from the lesser Sportswagon available in all trims except for the range-topping GT.
    Not that it comes as a big surprise, but the attractive long-roof version inherits the same 1.0- and 1.4-liter gasoline and 1.6-liter diesel engines from the regular Ceed, plus the punchy 1.6-liter gasoline unit of the Ceed GT unveiled today. The sporty version will provide 201 horsepower and 265 Newton-meters (195 pound-feet) of torque channeled to the front wheels through either a standard six-speed manual or an optional seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.

    You’ll be happy to hear the ProCeed is nearly as practical as the regular Sportswagon when it comes to cargo capacity. It offers a generous 594 liters (21 cubic feet) with the rear seats in place, which is almost a match for the 600 liters (21.1 cubic feet) you get in standard wagon. Kia has done a great job of tinkering with the roofline and the rear end to make the ProCeed look more appealing without hampering practicality.

    That Ceed has a fat ass. The front looks good, profile view less so, and rear just doesn't make it. Your opinion may vary.

    So that's the Spectra, evolved. My '07 Spectra was my first KIA, it replaced my '04 Impala. Both cars were trouble-free. Impala needed the GM Parts Direct front and rear anti-roll bars and some KYB shocks to make it roadworthy but otherwise it was an utterly reliable Road Warrior First Class. Spectra really only needed a HD rear anti-roll bar which made it the cat's meow. Both, of course, needed tires since OE were junk.

    This car must be Rio-sized, or maybe between Rio and Forte? I'll stick with my Soul at this point.

    The Ceed and Proceed are designed, built and sold in Europe instead of the Forte

    Overview
    Manufacturer Kia Motors
    Production 2006–present
    Body and chassis
    Class Compact car (C)
    Body style 3-door hatchback (Pro cee'd) (2006-2018)
    5-door hatchback
    5-door station wagon (Cee'd SW)
    Layout Front-engine, front-wheel-drive
    Chronology
    Predecessor Kia Spectra
    Kia Cerato
    The Kia Ceed (styled as CEED; known as the Kia cee'd before 2018) is a compact car produced by the South Korean manufacturer Kia Motors since 2006, exclusively for the European market. It was released in December 2006, superseding the Kia Spectra and is available as a three-door hatchback (Pro cee'd), a five-door hatchback and a five-door station wagon (Cee'd SW), with a choice of four engines (two gasoline and two diesel), five trim levels (1, 2, 3, 4 and 4 Tech – previously S, GS, LS and SR) and either manual or automatic transmission.

    The Cee'd is Kia's first European-designed and built car and Kia intends to sell and manufacture the car exclusively in Europe. To mark the occasion, Kia took the initials of the European Economic Community, EEC or CEE in some places and added ED for European Design. Realizing that "CEEED" had too many ‘E's, they replaced the last 'E' with an apostrophe, with "Cee'd" being the end result.

    The Cee'd was designed in Frankfurt, Germany, with Miklós Kovács leading the design team.[1] while the Concept Car was designed by Pontus Fontaeus. Cars are manufactured in the Kia factory in Teplička nad Váhom, Slovakia.[citation needed]

    As of 2010, the Cee'd received Kia's new corporate grille, known as the Tiger Nose.

    Hey at least they didn't call it a coupe. Although it's no Shooting Brake either.

    THAT is a damn good question, my friend. It may be a term designed to scare snowflakes, as we know "shooting" or "target" or "bang!" petrifies many modern kollij stoodints and sends them to the crying room.

    As for "brake," I don't know. But it sounds far too similar to "break" which could mean broken bones or other frightening, scary things like "spring break" or even "gimme a break."

    An odd term, it certainly doesn't describe a fastback station wagon which is what we're seeing here.

    The term relates to an early 20th century vehicle for taking shooting parties out on shooting trips https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting-brake

    The ProCeed is a modern version of a Shooting Brake, like Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake or Jaguar XF Sportbrake.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to navigationJump to search

    1910 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Shooting Brake
    A shooting-brake is a car body style that has evolved through several distinct meanings over its history.

    "Shooting-brake" originated as an early 19th century British term[1] for a vehicle used to carry shooting parties[2] with their equipment and game. The etymology of the term brake is uncertain;[3] initially a chassis used to break in horses, and subsequently used to describe a motorized vehicle. It is also possible, that the word 'brake' has its origins in the Dutch word 'brik' which means 'cart' or 'carriage'.[citation needed]

    The term was later applied to custom-built wagons by high-end coachbuilders and subsequently became synonymous with a station wagon or estate car.[4][5][6][7][8]

    In contemporary usage, the term shooting-brake has broadened to include a range of vehicles from five-door station wagons — to three-door models combining features of a wagon and a coupé.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting-brake

    As I said, to me it's a half-assed term that pretty much means nothing to anyone not immersed in auto trivia, 100 years after it had some sort of meaning.

    I think the thing is cool, supposed "fat ass" and everything. The ?aerodynamics add ons? tend to be the culprit I think.

    It seem like this is an attempt to do the same thing with the shooting brake that Audi, Mercedes, and BMW did with the coupe when they started slapping that moniker on 4-door fastbacks.

    Totally agree. We all know what a shooting brake is and what a coupe is and these aren’t them. Marketing.
