MARSH KIA TAUNTON REVEALS NEW CEED FAMILY DESIGNED WITH THE BUSINESS USER IN MIND

 

  • Extensively revised cee’d, pro_cee’d, and Sportswagon now available

  • New powertrains, lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

  • Highest level of driver aids and connected car services ever in a cee’d

 

Kia has revealed pricing and specification details for the extensively revised cee’d family, which is set to build on more than a million sales of the range already. The revisions have been applied to the whole range from the popular five-door cee’d through to the sporty pro_cee’d GT, and is available at Marsh Kia Taunton now!

 

New engine options

The Kia cee’d has always been popular with fleet and business sales and with two thirds of sales expected to be through fleet the new model is no exception, with all engines meeting Euro6 standards. The best-selling version among fleet and business buyers is predicted to be the five-door 1.6 CRDi diesel with grade ‘2’ trim, thanks to its combination of improved power and torque with lower fuel consumption and emissions.

The 1.6-litre CRDi turbodiesel engine has an increase in power – up from 126 to 134bhp – with greater torque of 280Nm in manual versions and 300Nm with the new 7-DCT gearbox. CO2 emissions are down by as much as 10g/km in manual versions and now start at just 94g/km.

The greatest gains are seen when the CRDi engine is paired with the 7-speed DCT gearbox. Compared with the previous model with a conventional six-speed automatic transmission, emissions tumble by almost 25 per cent, from 145g/km to 109g/km with BIK tax moving down to 19 per cent a benefit for business users and choosers alike.

 

New for Kia and seen first on the cee’d is Kia’s advanced new 1.0-litre ecoTurbo petrol engine - destined to be used in a number of models. The three-cylinder unit features direct fuel injection and turbocharging. Two versions are available, delivering 98 or 118bhp, for the cee’d and pro_cee’d, while the Sportswagon takes the higher-powered unit. 

Both are 998cc engines developed in-house at Kia’s Namyang research and development facility in Korea, and have been engineered to require 10 to 15 per cent less fuel than the 1.4-litre multi-point injection or 1.6-litre GDi units in other versions of the cee’d family.  Depending on model, fuel economy is up to 57.6mpg, with CO2 emissions as low as 113g/km

 

Highest level of driver aids and connectivity on offer

The 2016 cee’d family introduces a range of additional driver assistance and connectivity features. Depending on model, the cee’d is now available with a Speed Limit Information Function to reduce the risk of drivers falling foul of the law.

To help reduce accidents, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert add to the already comprehensive passive and active safety systems. Blind Spot Detection gives the driver an extra pair of  ‘eyes’  when swapping lanes, while the Rear Cross Traffic Alert prevents the car from being reversed into the path of another vehicle when leaving end-on parking bays. A perpendicular parking function has been added to the Parallel Park Assist System which was available in the previous model. It can steer the car into or out of parallel parking spots and into perpendicular - 90º - spaces.

The 2016 models feature the latest Kia Connected Services featuring TomTom® via a stylish, modern-looking 7-inch central touchscreen, drivers gain access to European mapping, a Traffic Messaging Channel, full UK postcode entry and the choice of fast, short or economical route-planning, while TomTom Connected services provide additional and valuable driver information, including speed camera locations, live traffic updates and local search and weather details. The 7-inch touchscreen is linked to a colour reversing camera. A DAB radio with MP3 compatibility becomes standard.

Paul Moorhourse of Marsh Kia Taunton said: ”We are delighted to be able to offer businesses in Somerset the all new cee’d. The cee’d has always proven an extremely popular fleet vehicle, and we expect the new range to prove just as successful”

 

The full range is available from all dealers from October priced from £14,905 for cee’d, £15,250 for pro_cee’d and £16,750 for Sportswagon. With 40 versions across the three body styles available the variety of choice for drivers is unlimited.

The cee’d was designed and engineered at Kia’s Frankfurt design studios and technical centre and is made at the company’s Žilina plant in Slovakia. It comes with a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty. The warranty and servicing packages are transferable if the car is sold before they expire.
