The Kia Proceed is a sportier version of the popular Ceed hatchback and was first launched in the UK in 2008 in three-door guise only.

Available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines with power output ranging from 89bhp up to 138bhp, this was no a hot hatch. Instead, its rivals are more conventional hatchbacks like the Citroen C4, Volkswagen Golf and SEAT Leon.  

Standard kit bettered that of the Ceed and was available in three trims; 2, 3 and Sport, the latter was only available with the most powerful 2-litre diesel engine. Equipment like air-con, electric windows and mirrors, USB port, rear spoiler and 16-inch alloys were all available on entry models.

With the launch of the second-generation in 2013, the Korean form focussed even more on those eye-catching looks with new cluster style headlamps, the latest generation ‘tiger nose’ grille design and a restyled tailgate introduced.
