Kia Ceed 2012: more pictures

More pictures of the 2012 Kia Ceed have been released, prior to its public debut at the Geneva motor show in March.

The new pictures show the side and rear of the car previously Kia has only released an image of the front three-quarters.

No interior pictures have been released. A new touch-screen entertainment system is likely, however, along with classier materials than the current car.

The 2012 Kia Cee'd is expected to be slightly bigger than todays Ceed, too, to provide more cabin space.

First deliveries of the new Cee'd are expected in June, shortly after its sister car, the Hyundai i30, with which it will share many parts.

Prices are likely to rise, so the Ceed wont be significantly cheaper than most rivals. All versions are likely to be well equipped, however, and come with Kia's seven-year warranty.

It's expected that a three-door Pro_cee'd version will join the line-up later this year and will be a rival to the likes of the Vauxhall Astra GTC. It's thought a hot hatch will have a version of the 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine that's in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

The SW estate version is due in the autumn.
