The new Kia Ceed hatchback was revealed only recently, and here our spy photographers have caught the long-roofed version of the model undergoing cold-weather testing in Sweden.

There’s still plenty of concealment around the Ceed wagon’s front end, but beneath that, the car can be expected to wear an exterior similar to the hatchback’s, at least from the A-pillars forward. The wagon also sports roof rails as par for the course, and while the doors and door handles on this example are shrouded, these can be expected to be similar to those on the five-door hatchback.

The Ceed wagon should be similar, if not identical to the five-door hatchback in terms of underpinnings and what will be under the hood; both petrol and diesel versions can be expected. For the hatchback, the following engines are available: 1.4 litre MPi (100 PS), 1.0 litre T-GDi (120 PS), Kappa 1.4 litre T-GDi (140 PS) and U3 1.6 litre CRDi.

The Ceed hatchback and wagon could merge with the Cerato line-up when the former makes its official debut, according to an earlier report by Australian website CarAdvice. Earlier generations of the cee’d (now known as the Ceed) catered almost exclusively to the European market, squaring up against the likes of the Volkswagen Golf. Meanwhile, the Forte and Cerato were aimed towards North America and the rest of the world.

Further along its development, the cee’d can be expected to feature a crossover version in the vein of the Picanto X-Line – which could make sense as a variant of this wagon – as well as a higher-performance GT model.
