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]
