Kia cee'd update - Irish launch

Kia has carried out a comprehensive upgrade of its popular Kia cee’d, a model that has provided the foundation for the company’s continuing success in Europe over recent years.

With more dynamic performance and Kia’s distinct style, the upgraded cee’d offers buyers a car built to meet the exacting standards of quality and design demanded by European buyers.

Kia’s European designers have evolved the interior and exterior styling of the current cee’d into an exciting new look, with the powertrain team developing a wider range of engines and transmissions.

The improvements include Kia’s all-new three-cylinder 1.0-litre T-GDI engine, as well as a range of new safety, comfort and convenience upgrades.

The changes apply to every model in the cee’d range, incorporating the five-door cee’d hatchback, Sportswagon and three-door pro_cee’d.

The upgraded model will come with a new ‘GT Line’ specification, offering buyers the sporty looks and dynamics of the GT models and the versatility of the conventional cee’d model family.

The GT Line specification is available in Ireland on two of the three cee’d body types – five door cee’d and three-door pro_cee’d.

Competing in the highly-competitive C-segment cee’d is an extremely important part of our product mix ,second only to our best-selling Sportage model,commented James Brooks, Managing Director of Kia Motors Ireland .
