Kia is a fan of the Merc CLA shoot­ing brake

Top Gear (UK) - - THE TEN - PH

Af­ter the Stinger gave us a com­pe­tent im­per­son­ation of a BMW 4-Se­ries GranCoupe, Kia now has its eyes on Merc shoot­ing brakes with the new Pro­Ceed. The old Pro-cee’d was a three-door hatch, but sales of those have fallen, so af­ter the five-door Ceed and the straight­for­ward es­tate ver­sion, Kia was in a bit of a co­nun­drum for the next body style. The re­sult is a rounded, ta­per­ing wagon, yet un­der­neath the curves, it’s a big boxy space of no less than 594 litres, more than the In­signia and Mon­deo es­tates. Niche bust­ing at its best.
