The New Look Kia cee'd

Kia's best-ever selling C-segment car gets a new look at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show in September and when the car goes on sale in the UK from 1st October 2009 a new ECO-dynamics model will be added to the range.

The Kia cee'd is Kia's top-selling model in Europe and has been thoroughly re-engineered and restyled under the direction of Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, to feature the latest version of the company's signature grille - an evolving expression of the brand's design DNA.

Comprehensively updated, the new Kia cee'd range will deliver a host of customer benefits including numerous exterior and interior design refinements, upgraded standard equipment and technical innovations. The Kia cee'd also gets a fully-revised suspension set-up.

The changes will also significantly reduce fuel consumption and in the new 'Intelligent Stop and Go' ECO-dynamics version to be launched for the first time in the UK CO2 emissions are reduced to 110 g/km. On average emissions will be cut by five per cent across the Kia cee'd line-up.

Kia Motors UK Limited Marketing Director, Simon Hetherington said: "The new cee'd is 25 mm longer and is more distinctive in appearance with a stronger road presence. Following our established model range line-up, customers will enjoy a thoroughly revised interior including a new-style steering wheel and gear lever, all-red instrument illumination, a new centre console and new audio systems, plus dual-zone climate control air-conditioning."

Technical innovations being introduced with the new Kia cee'd will include fuel-stretching ISG technology on the 1.6-litre diesel engines for the first time, a 'hill-holder' function for the ESP and brighter projection-style headlamps. The new 'U2' 1.6-litre diesel engine will be matched to a new six-speed manual transmission.

The 'new look' Kia cee'd range, which is backed by the company's unique 7-Year Warranty, will make its world premiere on 15th September 2009 at Frankfurt's International Motor Show.

Full UK range details and pricing will be announced prior to the on-sale date.
