Kia has revealed a teaser sketch previewing the design of its all-new Ceed, which will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show next month.
The five-door hatchback is due to be unveiled in Geneva alongside a second member of the Ceed family.
Engineered and built in Europe, the third-generation Ceed features a new, more sporty design as well as new technologies and engines.
The Korean manufacturer says the new Ceed conveys a “self-confident” look, having been designed at the brand’s European design centre in Frankfurt; its exterior looks to have been inspired by the ‘fastback’ styling of the brand’s flagship Stinger saloon.
Kia has also revised the third generation’s name, whereby cee’d now becomes Ceed.
Sales of the refreshed C-segment model will begin in the spring of 2018 in left-hand-drive markets across Europe. The UK on-sale date is yet to be announced.
