The first official image of Kia's facelifted Cee'd has surfaced on the web.

Designed by Audi alum Peter Schreyer, the new Cee'd features a redesigned bumper with a large air intake and rectangular fog lights. The overall effect helps to bring the Cee'd more in-line with Kia's recent offerings such as the Forte and Optima/Magnetis.

Engine options will likely carry over, meaning petrol power will be provided by a 109hp 1.4-liter, a 122hp 1.6-liter and a 140hp 2.0-liter engine. On the diesel side, expect the 115hp 1.6-liter CRDi and 140hp 2.0-liter CRDi to be offered. Although an engine stop/start system will only be available on the 1.6 petrol and 1.6 CRDi, it should eventually be offered on the rest of the lineup.

Look for the updated Kia Cee'd range to be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
