Kia will be revealing the production version of it’s Kia pro_cee’d 3-door hatchback at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show on the 11th next month. The new Kia pro_cee’d will have 19 different variants offering various engine options and trim levels – LX, EX and TX.

The Kia pro_cee’d is longer, lower and lighter than it’s 5-door Kia cee’d sibling, but keeps the same 2650mm wheelbase. Rear luggage capacity with the rear seats upright matches the 5-door model. The windscreen is shallower and vehicle height is reduced by 30mm. The doors are 276 mm longer than the front doors of the 5-door ceed model. Kia Motors Europe chief designer Gregory Guillaume notes that although the rear screen is steeply raked, rear headroom remains good.

Those who want more performance out of their pro_cee’d can order the optional Sports Pack, which comprises 17-inch alloy wheels with 225/45 R17 tyres, stiffer dampers, a sport-concept interior trim which features ‘tyre-track pattern fabric and silver stitching, plus alloy pedals and stainless-steel door-scuff plates.
