More images of the next-generation Kia cee’d have come about ahead of the five-door hatchback’s world debut in Geneva next month. Still nada as far as tech details go, but Kia says the new cee’d is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor, with the same long wheelbase.

Design-wise, the front of the new car gets the latest interpretation of the company’s trademark ‘tiger-nose’ grille as well as aggressive, wraparound headlamp clusters housing LED daytime running lights.

Other new detail touches for the exterior includes a new, bolder, more sophisticated Kia badge, an indicator blade protrusion in the front headlamps, the Kia-signature windscreen head castellations, a chrome side glazing surround and a specific aerodynamic shaping of the tail lamp which extends into the adjacent bodywork.

Meanwhile, there’s a completely new interior, offering a more premium look and feel and higher perceived quality, with the use of soft touch materials, as well as improved switchgear and enhanced driving position ergonomics – the dashboard layout features a cockpit-like design with an aircraft-themed, driver-oriented fascia.
