2013 Kia cee’d previewed before Geneva debut

Kia has just dropped some new images of the 2013 Cee’d hatchback, which will debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show next month.

“The new cee’d is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor, with the same long wheelbase,” Kia says. “The elegant simplicity of its coupe-like proportions is emphasised by a steeply raked A-pillar, a very low belt-line in the front and lengthened side windows.”

The interior of the new Kia Cee’d is also upgraded with higher quality material, improved ergonomics and features including touchscreen navigation, rearview camera, Bluetooth, heated seats and much more.

Now word on powertrain details but we’ve been hearing that Kia is working on a high-performance Cee’d that will produce 240-hp from a 1.6 liter turbo engine. Other reports suggest that the Hyundai Veloster Turbo‘s 1.6 liter 4-cylinder turbo making 204-hp will be used.

Stay tuned for more info.
