The updated family will go on sale at the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2021.
The third generation of KIA Ceed received the first restyling. It came out quite large-scale and touched on the exterior, interior and equipment, but first things first.
The updated “Sid” differs from the current version in a more dynamic look. The front end is completely redesigned: there are different lighting equipment (full LED headlights), a radiator grill (for hybrid versions it is closed with a contrasting color trim), bumpers with air intakes, a lower grille and, of course, the brand logo.
All versions now have alloy wheels, for the GT-Line they are 17-inch in high-gloss black, and for the GT they are 18-inch with low-profile sports tires and red accents. There are also new body paint options that were previously unavailable.
There are also a lot of changes inside. Better materials are announced, a large panoramic sunroof, a 12.3-inch dashboard that mates with 10.25-inch multimedia, and an electronic parking brake. We will also mention the seats, which will be available in five upholstery options.
The technological side of Ceed has not been ignored either. The models are promised the latest generation of the ADAS security complex, keyless access, engine start with a button, wireless charging, driver’s seat with memory settings, navigation, JBL audio system with eight speakers and Bluetooth. Also, the manufacturer has provided the ability to control some car functions through the Kia Connect app on a smartphone. On hybrid “Seeds” through the gadget, you can start or stop charging the battery.
The new line of engines is represented by PHEV and MHEV hybrids with a capacity of 120 to 204 hp, as well as conventional gasoline turbo engines with a volume of one and one and a half liters, there is also a 1.6 diesel. Below is a more detailed table with characteristics.
