Kia teases next-generation cee'd with shooting brake concept

Kia teases next-generation cee'd with shooting brake concept”

Kia has announced plans to unveil a new concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The concept features "extended hot hatch styling", and a new body type for Kia.

The Cee'd range will begin with the five-door hatchback and estate variants, as the bestsellers in the range.

Alternatively, Kia Australia's next hot hatch - positioned as a performance model below the upcoming rear-drive Stinger sedan - could be a turbo GT version of the next Cerato hatch produced in Korea. These are expected to arrive next year, although it's unlikely that the three-door Procee'd will be offered.

Set to debut next month at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show, we're sad to report the concept doesn't preview a new model line. The brand also hinted that the concept would preview a potential bodystyle for the C-segment vehicle, which is now on sale in three and five-door hatch and conventional estate formats only. Little else is know about the concept, but its makers promise it's been engineered to combine "striking visual presence with a dash of real-world versatility". "Reworked and reimagined for a new generation of driver, it puts forward a bold vision for a potential member of the next-generation cee'd family".
