2018 Kia Ceed revealed for Geneva

The new-generation 2018 Kia Ceed has been revealed today, and no we haven't forgotten an apostrophe: Kia's dropped it, to the delight of grammar prescriptivists around the world. As expected, the new Ceed wears front-end styling largely identical to the 2018 Kia Cerato sedan revealed in January...

2018 Kia Cerato hatch to debut in Geneva as the Ceed, sans apostrophe

The new 2018 Kia Cerato hatch - sorry, the new Kia Ceed - has been previewed today ahead of its debut at the Geneva motor show. And, hallelujah, the new third-generation model will drop the pesky apostrophe from the name. Kia's European arm has also confirmed an unspecified "second model of the Ceed family" will debut alongside the new five-door hatch...

2018 Kia Cerato hatch spied in Cee'd form

The new-generation Kia Cerato/Cee'd hatchback has been spied during testing in Europe, ahead of a likely unveiling at the Geneva motor show in March. Despite the black and white camouflage, this vehicle is largely identical in design to the undisguised version seen in Korea last December, pretty much confirming the new Cee'd and Cerato hatchbacks will basically be one and the same...

2018 Kia Cerato takes on... a Lamborghini Aventador?

In one of the more creative marketing campaigns we've seen, Kia's North American arm has decided to pit the new Forte (2018 Cerato) against "one of the fastest, flashiest, most coveted sports cars ever", the Lamborghini Aventador. Despite the comparison being held at a race track, much of the focus is on both vehicles at a standstill - very clever indeed...

Kia planning no N division, no powered-up Stinger... for now

The Kia Stinger GT is all the car it needs to be right now, says Hyundai Motor Group's chief of high-performance engineering, Albert Biermann - and so are the rest of Kia's GT models. Biermann was on hand at this week's Detroit motor show to talk with Australian press about his team's targets for Kia's sporting range...

2018 Kia Cerato GT confirmed for Australia, turbo looks likely

A new 2018 Kia Cerato GT model will headline the Korean brand's Australian line-up this year, sitting atop an otherwise familiar model spread. While some other model ranges in the Kia family are topped by a GT-Line variant, those are mere styling kits to give the car a more sporting look. But, as with the flagship Optima GT, removing the 'line' adds power and handling tweaks for a more sporting drive...

2018 Kia Cerato: AEB or sub-$20k, don't bet on both

The operations boss for Kia Australia says he is all too aware of the "nearly compulsory" status of autonomous emergency braking in today's new cars, and the situation has left his team with a dilemma. Last year, Kia Australia chief operations officer Damien Meredith was "pretty confident" buyers could expect to find autonomous emergency braking (AEB) at every level of the new 2018 Cerato range, revealed in Detroit this week...

2018 Kia Cerato revealed in Detroit

The new-generation 2018 Kia Cerato has been unveiled in Detroit today, debuting in its US-market 2018 Kia Forte form. Only the sedan body has been revealed, although earlier spy photos reveal what we can expect from the hatch design. Slightly bigger in every direction, the Forte also debuts a new variant of Hyundai-Kia's 2...

2018 Kia Cee'd Sportswagon caught with Cerato on its face

The next-generation Kia Cee'd wagon has been spied undergoing testing in Germany, trying to hide a front-end design that looks awfully like the new Cerato. Unfortunately, the test driver spotted the photographer from our spy agency, and promptly reversed away out of sight, meaning there are no pictures of the car's rear...
