New 2012 Kia Cee’d is fully exposed


Kia cars are getting attractive with each iteration, and that goes for the new 2012 Kia Cee’d compact hatchback, which is now in its second generation.

At a glance, you could be mistaken for the new 2012 Ford Focus. However, at a close up, the new 2012 Kia Cee’d compact hatchback wears the Kia badge. Is this coincidence or just another copy cat? Whatever the case, the new 2012 Kia Cee’d looks exceptional attractive from this view.

Kia claims that the 2012 Kia Cee’d compact hatchback has “enhanced maturity and presitge within a sport package,” which the front fascia now accommodates a larger set of headlights along with large air vent similar to the Kia Optima.

And in the interior, the new 2012 Kia Cee’d compact hatchback is designed with a driver-oriented cockpit, which features an ergonomics layout of all the switches and touchscreen system to access the car information without the need to take your eyes of the road. In addition, everything in the interior has been redesigned in some way or another, such as chrome accent treatment and high quality material throughout.

So far, no disclosed information on the powertrain, but we expect that it will likely get the same 156-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or the 173-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine as the Kia Forte.

The new 2012 Kia Cee’d will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month, and we will bring you more details on the estimated pricing and availability, so stay tuned.
