  • First cars to feature Kia’s new and advanced ecoTurbo petrol engine and seven-speed DCT

  • cee’d from £14,905, pro_cee’d from £15,250, Sportswagon from £16,750

  • Additional connectivity features available across the range


Marsh Kia Taunton is delighted to announce that the Kia cee’d range is available for purchase now. As the first to feature Kia’s new ecoTurbopetrol engine, which brings reductions of up to 25 per cent in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, the upgraded range is sure to be a hit with drivers in Somerset.


Developed at Kia’s Namyang research and development facility in Korea, the ecoTurbo, which was announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015, is more environmentally friendly and cost efficient. The new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission available exclusively on the 1.6 CRDi engine - was also developed in-house at Namyang - offers buyers the smoothness and comfort of an automatic, with the sportiness of a manual.


Paul Moorhouse at Marsh Kia Taunton, comments: ”The New cee’d family has arrived and we can’t wait to show it off to our customers. The improvements made are further proof that Kia does have the power to surprise, and as the first model to feature the new ecoTurbopetrol engine, we expect they’ll be a hit!”


Also available at Marsh Kia Taunton is the cee’d GT-Line available from £20,220, which is perfect for those seeking sportier styling. Distinguished by a deep front bumper and flanked by ice cube-style LED daytime running lights, the GT-Line boasts dual exhausts, or twin tailpipes on the Sportswagon, 17 inch alloys and is available on all three body styles. On the inside, there is a leather steering wheel and faux black leather door inserts with silver stitching and black glass trims, adding to the luxurious feel. The car also comes with a ‘GT Mode’ button on the steering wheel, synthesising the 1.6-litre revving engine noise into the cabin.


The cee’d family introduces a range of additional driver comfort and convenience features. Depending on the grade, the cee’d is now available with a Speed Limit Information Function - which automatically reads speed limit signs and informs the driver - Blind Spot Detection and 7-inch navigation screen with Kia connected services featuring TomTom®, helping to make the driving experience much smoother. A DAB radio with MP3 compatibility comes as standard across the range.  


All versions of the cee’d family have fully independent suspension to improve comfort and handling, and diesel models feature additional noise-insulating material under the bonnet and in the cabin for greater refinement and reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).


Every Kia model available at Marsh Kia Taunton, including the New cee’d family, comes with Kia’s unique seven-year warranty.
