Kia has confirmed will come more versions GT of their models. The south Korean manufacturer wants his range to become more athletic, and the best way to achieve this is to endow it with more variants with this surname. By the time the brand works with two models although it could be a third party in the next few years. In this way, the Kia Pro_Ceed GT will no longer be only in the range and the customer can choose between more options.
it appears that the two models that come under the last GT will be the Kia Optima and the Kia Rio. In particular, this last, that bautizarían with the name of Kia Rio GT, landed with an engine that would exceed the 180 horsepower. The utilitarian would come to compete directly with the Ford Fiesta ST, the model of the american household that makes 182 horsepower, and has always been respected for its high dynamics and its good relationship quality-price.
The other model is known as Kia Optima GT, which would be the sports sedan of the asian brand. In this case we would be faced with a version that would happen to the 200 horses of power, finding it under the hood a 2.0-liter turbo with 242 horsepower. Of course the Optima GT would be recognizable thanks to a revision to its aesthetics, which would be accessories exclusive that would make it more sporting bodywork.
recent reports have claimed that Kia will use the engines of the new range that will launch Hyundai. Although other rumors have been denied this information because the models Hyundai N will be more intended for the circuit and the GT from Kia to the street. In the meantime we will have to follow, “by conforming” with the Kia Pro_Ceed GT, the variant most radical of the compact with a turbocharged 1.6-liter with 204 horsepower.
