New Kia Cee’d Sportswagon Gears Up For A Possible Geneva Debut

Spy photographers have caught the 2018 Kia Cee’d on multiple occasions and now we’re getting our first glimpse at the Sportswagon variant.

Previewed by the Procee’d concept, the production model is heavily camouflaged but we can see it will have a tiger nose grille that is flanked by new headlights with integrated daytime running lights. The wagon also has chrome trim, roof rails, and what appears to be a panoramic glass roof.

The interior will likely echo the standard model so we can expect to find a relatively straightforward cabin with a trick-rimmed steering wheel, metallic accents, and an infotainment system. However, the Sportwagon variant will have a more accommodating interior with additional luggage space.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but choices are expected to mimic the Hyundai i30. As a result, petrol options may include a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 120 PS (88 kW) and 171 Nm (126 lb-ft) of torque as well as a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder with 140 PS (103 kW) and 242 Nm (178 lb-ft) of torque. On the diesel side, there could be a 1.6-liter engine with outputs of 110 PS (80 kW) and 136 PS (110 kW).

The Kia Cee’d is expected to debut at the Geneva Motor Show and reports have suggested the Cee’d Sportswagon could debut at the same time.
