With sheet metal changes to the bonnet as well as alterations to the bumper, grille and light clusters the revised cee'd also features some interior enhancements in terms of specification and design including a more intuitive centre console and upgraded audio system with Bluetooth connectivity.
"Since its launch just over a year and a half ago, cee’d has been instrumental in placing Kia firmly as one of the top five global automakers. With more than 5000 units already sold in the UK so far this year, cee’d is currently holding a four per cent share of the retail market," said Paul Philpott, Managing Director Kia Motors (UK) Limited.
"cee’d has been one of the first Kia models customers have bought for emotional rather than practical reasons.
"Now we have other aspirational cars in the range, such as the new Soul, we are establishing a clear image as a design led brand and, with more new introductions due early next year, Kia offers one of the youngest product ranges available," Mr Philpott said.
New cee’d will be unveiled at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show alongside two all-new Kia models.
