2013 Kia cee’d

Is this the all-new 2013 Kia cee’d 5-door hatchback?

The all-new Kia cee’d 5-door hatchback is scheduled to make its official public premiere at the Geneva Auto Show in March. It’s still more than two months before Kia puts the wraps off its next-generation C-segment car, which will be marketed exclusively in Europe, but we can already show you the very-first official image of it.

As evident from the image, the 2013 Kia cee’d will feature a completely redesigned exterior, which will adopt Kia’s latest styling elements, including H-shaped signature grille and stylish LED headlamps. The next-generation Kia Cee’d will be based on the Hyundai i30 platform and will include much of the same chassis and suspension components, and range of engines.

It will go on sale in Europe during the second quarter of 2012. Follow the jump to read Kia’s official press release!

The all-new 2013 Kia cee’d combines styling typically found on a sporty coupe with the space and functionality of a five-door hatchback.

Upmarket exterior design immediately gets your attention, with details like chrome framed windows and muscular lines on the bonnet. The stunning exterior design is complemented by an ergonomic, driver oriented control panel and refined interior, with a strong focus on quality of materials.

The new Kia cee’d is a technically sophisticated, highly competitive, C-segment entry wrapped up in Kia’s award-winning design and industry leading 7-Year warranty.

New cee’d will be available across Europe from second quarter 2012, with the precise on-sale date depending on market, and will make its world premiere at Geneva International Motor Show on March 6, 2012.[Source: Kia UK]

  1. I think its the image that makes it look a bit less attractive than other Kia offerings. The all-new cee’d looks much better than the old one, according to those people that have seen it in-person.

  2. A thought just came to my mind, just note how the grille from this 2013 c’eed is just like Kia GT (upside down H) and its front lamps have the day LEDs on the lower section of them. If you take a look on the Red Forte from Aug 17 you can notice that it had the day LEDs on the upper section of the front lamps and its grille is just like the Forte 2013 sketches (normal H).

  3. The cee’d also resembles the new Kia Rio sedan & 5-door. And it’s carrying on the styling direction set by the Optima, Sportage, and Sorrento.

    The car photo looks interesting…too bad the cee’d isn’t available in the US.

    It’ll be interseting what the rumored 2013 Forte will look like.

  4. ceed’s tiger nose is symetrical, must be changed , will be better if a little bit unsymetrical

  5. Another tought came to me: note how Kia signature grille stands out from the most of the other brand’s grille. While everybody is using some sort of “trapezoidal” grille (like Hyundai, GM, Ford…), Kia’s “2nd generation tiger nose” is the most unique design feature of nowadays.

  6. Did you notice this has the FORTE’S WHEELS!!!!!! The VENGA also wore the FORTE’S shoes!!!! OMG it must be a conspiracy or have some kind of secret meaning!!! Please find out ASAP!!!

  7. A bit of a let-down as Kia designs go, particularly the headlights and foglamps.

    Hopefully, the procee’d gets a better treatment up front.

  8. For me this is copy of new Opel Astra. I can’t wait to see the new turbo Kia Pro Cee’d!
