The 2018 Kia Cee’d was recently spied completely undisguised in South Korea, courtesy Motorgraph. The all-new Kia Cee’d looks ready for its debut next year.
While previous spy shots had clearly revealed the 2018 Kia Cee’d’s rear-end and profile, the latest spy shots give the first proper look at its front-end. At the front, the all-new Kia Cee’d features new sweptback headlamps in a more fluidic design, revised Tigernose grille, larger lower grille, more aggressive bumper, rectangular fog lamps along with air intakes.
With the redesign, the Kia Cee’d will move into its third generation. Like the latest Hyundai i30, it won’t have a 3-door version. Instead, Kia will launch a shooting brake version, the production version of the Kia Proceed Concept from IAA 2017. In Europe, the all-new Kia Cee’d could share the three- and four-cylinder turbocharged engines in 1.0-, 1.4- and 1.6-litre displacements with the Hyundai i30. Elsewhere, Kia may offer 1.4- and 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engines as well.
Kia is yet to announce the next-gen Kia Cee’d. According to media reports, the world premiere will take place at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.
