The all-new Kia Cee'd Sporty Wagon will make its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Cee'd Sporty Wagon retains all the attributes of the Cee'd hatchback but offers consumers extra practicality and versatility, with a unique extended tailgate design

The 4.5-metre long Cee'd wagon has an unusually long wheelbase resulting in great passenger and luggage space.

Customers in Europe will be able to choose from a line-up of 18 Sporty Wagons, with three equipment levels (LX, EX and TX), five engines, with manual or automatic transmissions, and an extensive range of optional equipment.

To boost load carrying ability and versatility, the wagonss overall length is increased by 235 mm, with all of that increase behind the rear wheels, and overall height is up by 10 mm. Luggage capacity goes up to a total of 534 litres ? loaded up to the bottom of the rear windows ? almost 200 litres more than the Cee'd hatchback.

The tailgate on the Cee'd Sporty Wagon is unique in the C-segment, and designed to give good access to the load area.

The top hinges have been moved forward by 225 mm (compared to the cee?d hatchback), so the tailgate has reduced outswing and upswing, allowing users to stand closer to the car and the tailgate to be fully opened, even in restricted parking spaces.

Endorsing the quality of this new model range, Kia is giving all Cee'd vehicles a remarkable 7-Year / 150 000km which is transferable to subsequent owners.
