The company has also retuned the stability control setup with keen drivers in mind, and added torque vectoring by braking.

Visually the GT is differentiated from lesser Ceed models thanks to a raft of styling changes. At the front there’s a tiger nose grille with a honeycomb insert incorporating red highlights and GT badging, as well as a new bumper with larger intakes and glossy black highlights.

Along the sides the GT features fuller sills finished in red and gloss black. At the back the warm hatch has a small roof spoiler, and wears unique bumpers with a diffuser finished in, you guessed it, gloss black.

The cabin gains grippier front seats clad in leather and suede. There’s also red stitching on the seats, leather steering wheel, gear shifter, and door trim.

Other changes include black roof liner, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, aluminium pedals, and metal shift paddles for cars equipped with the dual-clutch transmission.

The Ceed GT will be built at the company’s factory in Slovakia, and the company’s European arm says it will be “available exclusively to European drivers”. Sales begin in Europe during the first quarter of 2019.
