Thus, cee’d GT and pro_cee’d GT are inferior in the power to not only the seventh-generation Golf GTI, but its previous generation. In addition, the Korean innovation plays in the dynamics. It is known that cee’d GT to accelerate to 100 km / h needs 7.7 seconds, while the new Golf GTI does the same in 6.5 seconds (although it should be understood that the German has 220-horsepower engine, and its price is significantly more expensive).
