New Kia Cee'd for Geneva 2012

An all-new Kia Cee'd will be launched at the Geneva motor show in March.

It's expected the new Cee'd will be bigger than the current car which will mean increased cabin space while interior quality will be improved, and a new touch-screen entertainment system is likely to be added.

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

There are no details of the Cee'd's engine options, but there should be a 1.6-litre diesel unit with CO2 emissions of less than 100g/km.

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.
