KIA Ceed of the third generation, which debuted about three and a half years ago, is preparing for a planned restyling. The entire family will be declassified tomorrow, July 14, but for now the manufacturer has published one photo – alas, of rather low quality.
From left to right, the top-of-the-line ProCeed GT is shown here, as well as the title hatchback and regular Ceed SW station wagon, both with GT Line trim. The latter is charging, that is, it is a plug-in hybrid modification.
All cars have a redesigned front bumper with new fake air intakes on the sides. Above the re-shaped radiator grille, you can see the new logo, which KIA has already decorated quite a few models this year. The headlights seem to have changed the LED filling, although the outlines themselves remain the same. The “charged” GT modification traditionally stands out with a number of red accents.
The KIA XCeed cross-hatch is not shown in the photo, but this is not surprising: the raised model appeared much later than its brothers in the family, just a couple of years ago, so it will most likely be updated separately.
Previously, KIA has already modernized the Ceed interior, in particular – it has added a 12.3-inch digital dashboard and a touchscreen of the multimedia system increased to 10.25 inches, so this time there is no need to expect any radical changes. The same is true for the engine range: it was revised only last fall, offering a new 1.5-liter 160-horsepower turbo petrol engine (with and without starter-generator) instead of the 1.4-liter 140-horsepower, as well as a moderate-hybrid installation based on a 120-horsepower liter turbo engine.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that KIA has started to implement the next generation KIA Sportage Ace crossover at a cheaper price. This model was presented at the Shanghai International Motor Show in April this year.
