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

Kia has teased the next-generation cee’d via a swoopy-looking shooting brake concept that will be revealed in full at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

DETAILS ARE INCREDIBLY thin, but Kia has released a rear three-quarter pic of its new concept which it claims hints at the next-generation cee’d. In a short statement, Kia said “Designed at Kia’s European design centre in Frankfurt, just 500 metres from where it will be unveiled, the concept car indicates what the next-generation cee’d could look like.

“The concept presents a new body type for Kia. The extended hot hatch retains the athleticism of the current pro_cee’d model, while combining its 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.”

Kia isn’t saying much about what to expect from the next-generation cue’s , although if the teaser is anything to go by we can suggest it’ll be a shooting brake style vehicle which will be a radical departure for the brand, especially at that end of the market. But, in interviews, Kia’s UK marketing boss has suggested there’ll be a range of cee’d spin-off models to suit specific segments within the market it plays in, including a conventional five-door hatch, this shooting brake and even an SUV.

We’ll have to wait until we get closer to Frankfurt for more information on this new model.

    So,,, the same luggage capacity as a hatch but without the headroom of a hatch and a longer footprint than the hatch!
    Not very practical then innit!
    Ah well, whatever sells.
    KIA had best ensure that at the very least it has a digital speedometer because without one, most journalists will discredit the car!
    I see it as a personal preference, not a safety item or a “must have”.
