2012 Kia Cee'd Hatchback Unveiled Ahead of Geneva Debut

An all-new Kia Cee’d hatchback is scheduled to debut next month at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, but we have the first official photos now.

The Kia Cee’d is based on the same platform as the Hyundai i30, but is longer, wider and lower than the outgoing model. The new Cee’d gets Kia’s new design language with its sculpted hood and styling cues that are similar to the new Kia Optima.

The interior of the new Cee’d is more driver oriented and has a more premium look and feel than the last model. Kia hasn’t announced what will power the new Cee’d when it is released in Europe later this year.

We’ll know more next month.
