New KIA Cee’d launched
The new KIA Cee’d was launched by Cars International with a press event held recently.
Speaking at the launch, Ryan Buttigieg, the company’s general manager, said that the new Cee’d is “more sophisticated, more refined and more engaging to drive”.
The new Cee’d is longer and lower than its predecessor giving it a more sporty look, Mr Buttigieg said. It will be available with two gasoline engines – a 1.4MPI and a 1.6GDI producing 100 and 135PS respectively. There are also two diesel engines to choose from: a 1.4WGT with an output of 90PS and a 1.6VGT 110PS and a high power version (128PS).
The Cee’d was awarded a maximum five-star accident safety rating by EuroNCAP.
It is equipped with ESP, ABS, BAS, Hill Assist Control, Vehicle Stability Management and Emergency Stop Signal as standard.
The Cee’d has a starting price of €15,650, including scrap rebate.
“The new Cee’d is all about value, quality and reliability through the unique KIA seven-year warranty,” Mr Buttigieg concluded.
