We have confirmed that Kia was working on an all-new third body type for the recently launched new generation Ceed, and that will be a Shooting Brake based on the concept above.[ads id=”9″]
At the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the South Korean automaker unveiled the beautiful Proceed Shooting Brake Concept.
At the beginning was very unclear to know about if the automaker had already designed a production version (and we have forwarded here in one of our reports) and now is AutoWeek who in a recent discussion with Kia’s head of product planning seemed to confirm that the car will reach the production line.
According to David Labrosse, Kia will introduce a third bodystyle of the Ceed at the upcoming Paris Motor Show to slot alongside the hatchback and wagon. Style and practicality to join forces.
Further quizzed about the model, Kia Motors Europe’s former chief operating officer Michael Cole, was asked if the next Ceed variant will be similar to the Hyundai i30 Fastback.
Responding, Cole said the new Ceed will instead be more sporty and practical. It’s hard to deny the fact that the Proceed Shooting Brake Concept looked extremely intriguing. With that in mind, it could easily act as the perfect flagship model in the Ceed range, if put into production the same way.
