More Official Photos and Details on 2010 Kia Cee'd Facelift

Kia has released new photos of the facelifted Cee'd that include the first shots of the Sport Wagon model as well as some additional details on the mechanical upgrades. The new Cee'd range is distinguished by the new front fascia that falls in line with Kia's new family looks while the tail lights and rear bumper have also been revised.

In the interior, design refinements include a newly styled steering wheel, all-red instrument illumination, a subtly redesigned centre console with new audio systems, plus dual-zone climate control air-conditioning.

The Korean automaker revealed that its Opel Astra and Renault Megane challenger gets a fully-revised suspension set-up while numerous engine tweaks help cut emissions cut by five per cent across the entire line-up.

The 2010MY Cee'd also sees the introduction of a new Eco-Dynamics version powered by an all-new 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine with Kia's "Intelligent Stop and Go" system coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox.

The facelifted Cee'd range will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September with sales set to begin across Europe in the beginning of October.
