With the summer season now in full swing, Kia is turning up the heat even further with a range of special edition models on sale now. These eye-catching additions join the Picanto, Stonic, Ceed and Sportage ranges just in time for the temperatures to go off the scale. But that’s not all, Kia has also enhanced its Ceed range, with new ‘2 Nav’ editions and the addition of automatic transmission to its ‘GT-Line’ range.
Picanto ‘Titanium Edition’
Classy Titanium silver paintwork included as standard
LED bi-function projection headlights as standard
Following the success of the Picanto ‘Wave’ special edition introduced earlier this year, an exciting new ‘Titanium Edition’ is now available, targeted at a younger audience, or for those that are still young at heart. There’s Titanium silver metallic paintwork, rear privacy glass and 15-inch alloy wheels, in addition to LED bi-function projection headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lights and LED rear lights. The interior features an elegant and sophisticated black faux leather upholstery with black high gloss trim accents for the door armrests, air vents and lower centre console trim. The youthful character is emphasised by the fitment of a seven-inch touchscreen display with RDS and DAB radio, including Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM, with voice control and reversing camera with dynamic guide lines. The ‘Titanium Edition’ is available with the 1.0 MPi 66bhp petrol engine with five-speed manual transmission and is priced at £12,350, or alternatively with the 1.25 MPi 83bhp four-speed automatic at £13,520.

‘GT-Line Lunar Edition’ takes its name from its premium Lunar Silver paintwork

A stylish new special edition has been revealed for the Ceed range, with the ‘GT-Line Lunar Edition’ now on sale. Featuring premium Lunar Silver metallic paintwork as standard, it is combined with eye-catching LED bi-function headlights and a panoramic sunroof. The interior features the same smart black cloth seat trim with faux leather bolsters with integrated GT-Line logo and grey stitching that you’ll find on other ‘GT-Line’ variants, as well as heated seats and steering wheel and a leather D-cut steering wheel with grey stitching. Available with the five-door hatchback bodystyle, the ‘GT-Line Lunar Edition’ is available with the 138bhp 1.4-litre T-GDi engine with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic DCT gearbox.

Seven-speed automatic DCT gearbox now available with ‘GT-Line’ trim and 134bhp 1.6-litre CRDi engine.
In response to customer demand, Kia is introducing additional variants to the Ceed line-up, with a new ‘2 Nav’ grade joining the range. Offering the same equipment as the well-equipped ‘2’ grade, the newcomer additionally features an eight-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system as standard. The Ceed ‘2 Nav’ is available in two bodystyles – Ceed five-door hatchback and Ceed Sportswagon – with either the 118bhp 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol engine, or the 114bhp 1.6-litre CRDi unit, each equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. Prices start at £18,900 for the Ceed ‘2 Nav’ 1.0-litre T-GDi and £19,900 for the Sportswagon variant, while the diesel alternative costs £20,150 for the five-door hatchback and £21,150 for the Sportswagon. The additional cost of the ‘2 Nav’ model compared to the regular ‘2’ is a snip at just £300.
