After three years, the third-generation Ceed line has been modernized. In the middle of the life cycle, the hatchback, station wagon and shooting brake ProCeed have a new front and rear bumper, and you can recognize the headlights and taillights by their new shape and light signature. The novelty also has a recently introduced logo with simplified graphics.
Also new are body paints and the look of alloy wheels. The most powerful version of the GT received distinctive red body accessories.
There are new materials in the interior. In terms of technology, the 12.3-inch instrument panel remains on offer in combination with a 10.25-inch center screen. However, they have different graphics, themes and the possibility of remote connection with smartphones. For example, with a plug-in hybrid station wagon, battery charging can be switched on and off remotely.
The ADAS set of assistance and security systems also has new functions. The car now has a blind-spot monitoring function with active collision avoidance or extended driver fatigue monitoring with a vehicle start warning function.
The liter three-cylinder with an output of 100 hp can now be paired with a dual-clutch transmission, and even this base has a mild hybrid assistance in the form of an integrated starter-generator. This technology can also be fitted with a four-cylinder 1.5 T-GDI of 160 hp, which serves as a successor to the fourteen hundred.
The diesel mild remains a hybrid sixteen-stroke 136 hp plug-in hybrid version that uses a 1.6 GDi petrol engine with a maximum output of 141 hp in combination with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission. The battery module with a capacity of 8.9 kWh offers a range in the city of up to 57 km on a single charge.
The GT version has a 1.6-liter T-GDi unit with a dual-clutch transmission and provides 204 hp.
Modernized ceedes will be produced in Žilina in August this year. They will be available in European markets during the fourth quarter of this year. Czech prices have not been published yet.
