Next-generation Kia cee'd image released

Kia releases first official image of the 2013 Kia cee'd!

It's still two months before the 2013 Kia cee'd makes its official premiere, but the carmaker decided to release the very-first official image of its next-generation C-segment car to public.

Scheduled to go on sale in the first half of 2012, the all-new 2013 Kia cee'd will sport more stylish exterior lay-out and also more sophisticated interior, says Kia.

It will be built upon the same platform as Hyundai i30 and will also use the same engine technology. The all-new 2013 cee'd from Kia Motors will be produced at Kia's European manufacturing plant, located in Slovakia.

It will be produced alongside new Sportage CUV, which has experienced a very high consumer demand. Kia can't build enough of the Sportages, actually. Hopefully, the 2013 Kia cee'd will see the same positive reaction from the European public as its crossover sibling.

What is interesting about the new Kia cee'd is the fact that it will be used as a base for the next-generation Kia Forte sedan. We have seen some spy shots already and those suggest the new Forte will feature the same front-end design as the 2013 Kia cee'd. Some minor styling changes are expected though to satisfy the North American consumer tastes.

More details about the new Kia cee'd will be released soon, so stay tuned!
