Kia’s still-new Pro_Cee’d GT sports hatch, which hit Australia earlier this year, is now available with satellite navigation.
The news follows confirmation at the Pro_Cee’d GT’s launch in March that Kia would make the technology available before the end of 2014.
Now standard with the top-shelf ‘GT Tech’ model, the addition of sat-nav marks a $1500 price increase to $34,990.
Likewise, adding it to the regular $29,990 ‘GT’ model attracts a $1500 premium (forming a new 'GT Nav' trim grade).
The upgrade sees the Pro_Cee’d GT pick up a new 7.0 inch touch screen, controlling satellite navigation, radio and other media, and the already standard reversing camera.
Models without satellite navigation will continue with the monochromatic display that the range launched with, with the reversing camera’s image displayed instead in the rear-view mirror.
As before, the Pro_Cee’d GT remains a strictly manual-only proposition, with an automatic option still nowhere to be seen.
Reports suggest Kia is planning to launch an automatic version in the future, likely with the GT’s mid-life makeover, although the carmaker has yet to confirm plans.
