Pre-show reveal for next Kia hatch

2012-01-12 09:42

Kia has shown the first teaser image of its all-new Cee'd ahead of the car's debut appearance at the 2012 Geneva auto show in March.

The next Kia Cee’d combines styling typically found on a sporty coupé with the space with the functionality of a five-door hatch.

Kia appears to have gone for the "upmarket" look with details such as chrome-framed windows and more muscular design cues. The exterior design is complemented by an ergonomic, driver-oriented dashboard and an interior described by Kias as "refined" with better quality materials.

The new Cee’d will be available across Europe from the second quarter of 2012 and is expected to be launched in South Africa, too.

    Looks good...like most Kia vehicles currently. Good prices, good specs, reliable cars.... poor customer service and lack of supply to SA make buying a Kia a frustrating experience. When will Hyundai/Kia start taking the SA market serisouly...and not a hand-me-down-of-whatever-is-left-in- the factory market???

      @ henning.pantke Not true. If SA was a European country we would be in the 6th position. Only Germany, France, UK, Italy and Spain sells more. Take a look at http://bestsellingcarsblog.com/

    Where will this fit in the Kia line-up? Above the Kia Rio?
