The new Kia c’eed will be on sale from the 1st June priced from £14,395. This new model is more sophisticated, more efficient and more refined than its predecessor. The new cee’d is both longer and lower than the previous model giving the five-door hatchback a more sporty profile.
The second-generation Kia cee'd raises the benchmark for fuel-efficiency in its class, with average fuel consumption reductions of 4 per cent and CO2 emissions as low as 97g/km for the 1.6-litre diesel model which is a remarkably low figure for a non-hybrid car. Four engines are available at launch; 1.4 and 1.6-litre diesels from Kia's U2 family and petrol engines of similar capacity from the Gamma range.
The new Kia cee’d is offered in a range of ten exterior colours including five new ones and will be the first to show the new look Kia badge on its bonnet. The interior boasts soft-touch surfaces, high-quality materials, damped sun visors and lidded storage areas, subtle red ambient lighting, tactile door grab handles and precise panel gaps combine to give the interior of the new cee'd a solid, mature, made-from-a-mould feel.
All feature a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment and a height-adjustable driver's seat, air conditioning, steering wheel-mounted controls, front electric windows, projection headlights, daytime running lights, remote central locking, a cooled glovebox, a flat-folding 60:40 split rear seat, ambient front lighting, an iPod-compatible audio system with radio and CD player, USB port and Bluetooth connectivity, ESP and VSM, HAC (Hill-start Assist Control), six airbags and speed-sensitive auto door locking.
