2018 Kia Cee’d Spy Shots, Release Date, News


These are the latest Kia spy shots and they showcase a heavily camouflaged 2018 cee’d 5-door hatchback.

This is the third-generation Kia cee’d, which first hit the market back in 2012, and which got a minor facelift last year.

There will be many more changes on the 2018 Kia ceed, which is currently out and about in the testing phase.

2018 Kia cee’d release date

The official 2018 Kia cee’d release date has yet to be announced, but we expect the model to be launched in Europe late next year.

The 2018 cee’d 3-door coupe and the 2018 cee’d SW estate will follow within a few months of the release.

The 2018 Kia ceed spy shots were taken in Germany, and it would appear to be the production body on display, although it is heavily camouflaged.

What we can see is a sportier front fascia with a low grille and sleek headlights.

The tiger nose grille has undergone a little bit of a reshaping, too. Around back, the taillights are now a little wider than before.

2018 ceed engine specs

Under the hood, the engines used will be the same as those on the new generation Hyundai i30, which means the entry level engine will be a 1.0-liter turbo that cranks out 118-hp and 125-lb.-ft. of torque.

Also, expect a 1.4-liter that delivers 138-hp and 179-lb.-ft. of torque.

As far as diesel options go, expect a 1.6-liter engine with three distinct outputs: 94-hp, 109-hp, and 134-hp.

Engine choice will dictate the transmission, which will either be a 6-speed manual or the optional 7-speed DCT.

    What I cant understand is why it seems Kia got it right on the C segment car for Europe and isnt as motivated for the C segment American version?

    Cee’d was always a step better even if the Spectra/Forte eneded up getting redesigned aftwerwards.

    My question is, if Kia is more motivated on just the ceed then why can’t the ceed just be a rebadge Forte? After all that new Civic, Honda finally listened. Thats Civic is NICE!
