At the disposal of the edition of Autoevolution were spy shots of new Kia cee’d of the third generation, on which the camouflaged hatchback was imprinted with the serial body. The public premiere of the new Kia models will be held in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
Judging by the photos, the third cee’d will look like a Forte sedan of a new generation. The hatchback will receive LED headlamps, as well as the proprietary radiator grille “Nose Tiger”, borrowed from the sports fastbike Stinger. Finally, a number of stylistic elements will be taken from the concept car Proceed, presented in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The line of Kia cee’d engines will include a gasoline three-cylinder supercharged engine with a one-liter capacity of 120 hp and a 1.4-liter four-cylinder producing 140 horsepower. In addition, diesel engines of 1.6 liters capacity will be available, developing 110 and 136 hp. Transmission is a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic” with two clutches.
According to preliminary data, the third Kia cee’d will have at least four modifications. In addition to the hatchback and station wagon, buyers will be offered a car with a bodywork Shooting Brake, also an all-road option.
