Next-generation Ceed model spied with some interior shots too that reveal new styling features.
Here are the first spy shots of the upcoming next-generation 2012 Kia Ceed doing its final round of winter testing in the colds of Scandinavia.
Our spy photographers also managed to get a couple of shots of the inside as well, although, there was camouflage there too. But we do get a pretty good look at the interior styling with that shot of the rear seat, inside door panel and that tiny window on the C-pillar which is a distinct design feature of the Ceed.
The Ceed is Kia's Golf-class/C-segment entry for the European market that shares a platform with sister-brand Hyundai's i30 model. It may come to share some engines with that model too, including a 1.6 liter gasoline/petrol with around 122 PS (90 kW/121 hp) and 155 Nm (114 lb-ft) of torque, as well as a 1.7 liter diesel producing 115 PS (84 kW /113 bhp) and 255 Nm (188 lb-ft) of torque.
A livelier version of the Ceed could come with the 1.6 liter Gamma GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) turbo with 140 PS (138 hp / 103 kW) and 133 lb-ft (167 Nm) of torque as well as a top-power variant of that engine which produces an output of 177 PS (131 kW/175 hp).
