Kia cee’d Gets Three-Door in Frankfurt

July 25, 2007

Kia says it’s adding another sibling to the cee’d family this fall at theFrankfurt auto show. The cee’d — a compact not sold in the U.S.— will get a three-door version which will be shown for the first time in Frankfurt.


The hatchback model follows on a pro_cee’d concept car shown at the 2006 Paris auto show. Kia’s design team, under director Peter Schreyer, also plans to show a sports coupe concept at the Frankfurt auto show along with the cee’d three-door.


“Longer, lower, and lighter than its five-door sister car, the new Kia Pro-cee’d is going to be a great drive,” promised Kia’s senior VP in Europe , Jean-Charles Lievens. “Combining real style and genuine practicality, our new three-door cee’d is sure to delight existing Kia customers and attract a new group of European consumers who have not yet considered our brand.”


The new Pro-cee’d will be built in Kia’s facililty in Slovakia . Production will begin in November and sales in Europe will begin early in 2008.
