Kia cee’d 2016 tested: 1.0 T-GDI (100 and 120 hp) that convinces a three-cylinder

A few days ago we traveled to Zilina, Slovakia, to test the renovated Kia cee’d. Why there? Although this city is not, far from it, too known in Europe, it is nailed – since 2006 – the first factory of Kia in Europe. Zilina took place in 2014 over 323,000 cars and 493,000 engines in production lines that supply the European cee’d, Sportage and Come models. A proper to taste for the first time on new Kia cee’d 1.0 T-GDI 120 hp , a three-cylinder that will try to convince you that your next Kia uses a gasoline engine, and the Kia It provides an answer, quite solid, as the engines of Ford Ecoboost 1.0. will get the 1.0 T-GDI to waive the diesel?

The renewed Kia cee’d is presented German and more efficient than ever

The 1.0 T-GDI engine is a gasoline direct injection, three-cylinder turbo . This engine has been designed in Kia Technical Center in Namyang, South Korea, with the aim of providing adequate benefits, but especially fuel consumption very content. will be available in two power levels, 100 hp and 120 hp . Maximum torque is 172 Nm, regardless of the version chosen, and reaches far down, from 1,500 rpm to 4,000 rpm.

In any case, the arrival of this new petrol engine not involve the removal of 1.4 MPI 100 hp , atmospheric. The latter is less sparing in their consumption, but also is expected to be cheaper at the time of purchase. In fact, the 1.4 MPI is the engine of the Kia cee’d access to range. Both engines comply with the Euro VI emissions standard and their prices shall know soon, because launch is scheduled for this coming October .

The arrival of the 1.0 T-GDI shall not prevent the continued marketing Kia 1.4 MPI 100 hp without turbo and less sparing in their consumption.

With a 1.4 MPI 100 hp cheaper, why it’s worth a 1.0 T-GDI? The differences between the two engines are important. The 1.0 T-GDI engine is a fairly kick down, at least in the version of 120 hp, but the progressive and linear time. There is an engine that invites you to get close to the red zone of the rev counter, but premium that we move in the middle , below 4,000 rpm, with a very acceptable answer.

Although the three-cylinder raise questions, especially with regard to softness or sound, the last engine we tested these features have surprised us. The 1.0 T-GDI is a smooth and comfortable driving, perhaps not as much as the 1.0 Ecoboost Ford , but definitely there is a gulf between the two. The sound is high, but not too high, nor annoying. It also helps that soundproofing and interior settings of this renewed cee’d – we tried the finish GT Line – are at an excellent level, among the best in the general space. Kia continues to improve the perceived quality of their cars, and that is something that is particularly noticeable in a line GT Line that stands atop the range.

The yield on the 1.0 T-GDI engines is defined primarily by that commitment, strong bottom, which helps us in recoveries, additions, etcetera. In the 0 to 100 km / h actually 1.4 MPI (12.7 seconds) is not worse than the 1.0 T-GDI 100 CV (12.8 seconds). Both engines are associated with a manual six relationships.

Regardless of the chosen power, the 1.0 T-GDI will not have to pay tax.

On trips we make, interspersed with stretches of road routes population did consumption of 6 liters / 100 kilometers. In any case we still have no real and comparable reference in our usual tests consumption scenarios. The big difference between 1.0 T-GDI and 1.4 MPI is found in the consumption of 6.0 liters / 100km 1.4 MPI 1.0 T -GDI has dropped to 4.7 liters / 100 kilometers (100 hp) and 4.9 liters / 100 kilometers (120 hp) approved .

Another interesting issue is the emission of CO2 . 1.4 MPI , although it will rank as the economic engine of the cee’d range will be taxed at 4.75% registration tax for their emissions of CO2 ( of 129-138 g / km). The 1.0 T-GDI, however, and whether they choose the 100, or 120 hp, will be free from paying registration tax for their emissions of CO2 of 109 and 115 g / km respectively.

Honestly, now I think the customer looking for a Kia cee’d will have to consider very seriously whether to choose a diesel engine or gasoline . The Kia cee’d will be available with a 1.4 CRDi 90 hp and 136 hp 1.6 CRDi. In terms of performance, the 1.0 T-GDI fall between these two diesel, perhaps in a perfect balance for anyone looking for a compact suitable for city and highway, without any pretensions. Remember that the more powerful engine remains the Kia cee’d GT, which uses a 1.6 T-GDI 204 hp.

With these turbo engines between 100 and 120 hp, there are fewer excuses to choose a diesel cee’d . While diesel will remain the most demanded engine in Europe. So the next time we meet this cee’d 1.0 T-GDI is to analyze more closely their consumption, and by then we will know their final prices. But in principle we found the only justification for choosing diesel right now is precisely to travel many kilometers, in the order of tens of thousands of kilometers each year to rule.
