Kia new model blitz pro_cee'ds apace
Thursday 13 September 2012
Hot on the heels of the new Sportswagon estate version of the second-generation cee'd, Kia has now issued the first pictures of the pro_cee'd three-door coupé model as well.
The latest pro_cee'd continues the trend for Kias to adopt more stylish lines; where the out-going version was very much a straightforward three-door adaptation of the first-generation cee'd hatchback, the new car is a far sportier affair that appears to share far less of its bodywork with the base car. That means it should be a much more convincing competitor for the Volkswagen Scirocco, but it is most likely to be compared with the unusual but appealing one-door-one-side-two-doors-the-other Veloster coupé produced by Kia's sister brand Hyundai.
The pro_cee'd will be built from the first quarter of 2013 at Kia's modern factory in Zilina in Slovakia, which opened in 2007. Customers will get their first chance to see the new pro_cee'd in the metal at this month's Paris Motor Show, where it will appear alongside the latest version of Kia's mid-sized people-carrier, the Carens, which is also expected to be much more stylish than its predecessor.
