New Kia Ceed Sportswagon Uncovered In Geneva With Some Very BMW-ish Taillights

After a couple of images surfaced online today, our photographers captured the new Ceed Sporstwagon on display at the Geneva Motor Show floors.

The station wagon looks identical to the hatchback up to the B-pillar, and after that it gets a longer roofline and an extended rear end for that additional boot space and increased practicality.

Looking at the car’s rear, we couldn’t but notice the similarities of the Sportswagon’s tailights with BMW’s 6-Series Gran Coupe – are we the only ones to think so?

Obviously, the Ceed Sporstwagon gets the same interior as the five-door hatch, with a floating-style infotainment system and plenty of gear available, depending on the selected trim.

Higher spec versions will come with heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control, wireless phone charging, and a host of driver assistance features. Moreover, customers can choose between different driving modes, including Sport.

The engine lineup will likely include all the units already available on the hatchback, such as the 1.0-liter with 120PS (118hp), the 140PS (138hp) 1.4-liter and a less powerful 1.4-liter petrol. The automaker hasn’t cut back on diesels, as the 1.6-liter CRDi is offered with two outputs, 115PS (113hp) and 136PS (134hp) respectively.

Kia has more derivatives of the new Ceed in store, and one of the models expected to arrive is the GT hot hatch, probably joined by the Shooting Brake, while later on a Ceed-based SUV might complete the lineup.

    rear looks like optima

  • Marty

    I actually thought it was a photoshop of an Opel with Kia grille.

  • The old Cee’d looked better.

  • Edums

    That blonde, even the other model cannot stop staring at her.

    The car looks good, has good proportions, and looks to be of reasonable quality in pictures. But I am with other commenters here, it is not exciting, and I do not feel like “I want one”, and I am currently seeking a car in this segment.

  • haudit

    Looks very, very similar to its Hyundai i30 Tourer relative in profile. Perhaps a little bit too close for comfort.

  • Zandit75

    Mmmmm, Leather!!

  • Six_Tymes

  • Incog Nito

    Am i the only one not noticing the car because of that blonde?

  • Dalibor Milic

    I LOVE the rear .. not on the car obvs … ( pic 10 😉 )

  • getoffme

    I thought those showgirls were going away? Oh they replaced them with butter faces.

  • Vangelis Goulis

    Even though Kia and Hyundai have both improved their design quite a bit, I can’t shake the feeling that the did so by actually copying brands like Ford, Audi, Merc and BMW

  • Bash

    Those rear lights are very BMW

  • SteersUright

    We all know this segment of car must be boring to look at and drive to appeal to the largest slice of the market and this Kia certainly hits the mark.

  • KidRed

    Those tails are not ‘very’ BMW-ish at all.

    • Mynameis Taylor

      are you joking? they’re nearly identical to that of the BMW 6 series

  • Jorge Salazar
