2019 Kia Ceed Sportwagon Heading To Geneva

Kia has quietly confirmed what everyone already knew: the new Ceed Sportwagon will be unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, on Tuesday.

What you see pictured here is a render, but the estate, which builds upon the all-new third-generation car unveiled last month, will sport an identical front end to the hatch, with the only differences being obviously at the rear.

It will have a longer rear overhang, more generous boot capacity, and probably some suspension tweaks to help its increased hauling abilities.

Buyers will have to choose from the same petrol and diesel engines shared with the hatchback, mated to either a six-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, depending on the unit.

Kia’s compact family is believed to include more members, which besides the Ceed five-door hatchback and estate, is believed to gain a new Shooting Brake version. Previewed by the Pro_Cee’d concept last year in Frankfurt, it’s a more stylish version of the Sportwagon, with a sloping roofline.

A Ceed GT hot hatch appears to be on the table as well, using the powertrain of the Hyundai i30 N, but with less power to avoid cannibalization.

Finally, a new compact SUV, based on the new Ceed, might arrive close to the end of next year, slotting under the Sportage.

The Korean automaker doesn’t appear to be planning a three-door version, as the Pro_Cee’d model won’t make a comeback.
