Press Release:

Major upgrade for Kia cee’d with new look, new engines and improved dynamics

  • Subtle upgrades to exterior styling, interior quality and refinement

  • Wide range of engines includes highly-efficient new 1.0-litre ecoTurbo
  • Lower emissions and adoption of a new seven-speed DCT gearbox
  • Advanced new Kia Connected Services to launch later this year
  • Introduction of sporty new GT Line specification
  • Upgraded Kia cee'd available across Europe from July 2015

Kia has today announced details of a comprehensive upgrade to its increasingly popular Kia cee'd, a model that has provided the foundation for Kia's continuing success in Europe over recent years.

Kia's European designers have evolved the interior and exterior styling of the current cee'd into an exciting new look, with the powertrain team developing a wider range of engines and transmissions. The improvements include Kia's all-new three-cylinder 1.0-litre ecoTurbo engine, as well as a range of new safety, comfort and convenience upgrades. The changes apply to every model in the cee'd range, which now incorporates the five-door cee'd hatchback, Sportswagon and three-door pro_cee'd.

The modifications applied to the cee'd range also include a range of visual and dynamic improvements to the high-powered cee'd GT and pro_cee'd GT models. Already among the best-looking cars in the C-segment ‘hot hatch' segment, these changes will further strengthen the GT models' appeal to buyers in this more emotive corner of the market.

The upgraded model will come with a new ‘GT Line' specification, offering buyers the sporty looks and dynamics of the GT models and the versatility of the conventional cee'd model family. The GT Line specification is available on all three cee'd body types - five door cee'd, cee'd Sportswagon and three-door pro_cee'd.

Exterior styling: a more modern appearance

The upgraded Kia cee'd inherits the bold, sleek styling of the current model, with a series of visual modifications to modernise the car's appearance.

At the front, the cee'd continues the look that has proven so popular with European buyers, retaining Kia's hallmark ‘tiger-nose' grille, sleek wraparound headlamps and integrated fog lamps. Changes to the ‘face' of the cee'd include a more angular and wider bumper, with chrome trim around the fog lamps, and a new oval-shaped grille mesh echoing many of the shapes and design forms on the front of the car.

A similar change has been made to the rear of the cee'd, with reshaped bumpers and sporty-looking reflectors adding greater volume and strength to the car's appearance. LED rear lamps complete the rear of the car, adding a higher level of refinement while updating the cee'd's night-time light signature. Stylish new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheel designs are also now available across the range.

Subtle styling upgrades to the interior and improved NVH

The high quality cabin in the Kia cee'd has received a range of minor styling upgrades to build on the simple elegance of the interior design. The basic form of the cabin remains unchanged, but a number of subtle enhancements bring a more modern look and feel to the interior. A new optional colour pack further adds to the cee'd's appeal.

The asymmetric, driver-focused dashboard receives a flash of chrome around the instrument binnacle, driver-side and central air vents and around the upper edge of the instrument panel. The central fascia panel is now finished in a high quality, anti-scratch gloss black for a more premium look. Other chrome highlights have also been added to the cabin, in particular around the base of the gear-stick, on door handles, and to the temperature control dials on the dashboard, depending on trim level.

For diesel variants, the upgraded interior of the cee'd offers improved noise, vibration and harshness characteristics. Additional sound-absorbing materials have been adopted for the carpet and ventilation system, while twice as much anti-vibration material has been added to the dashboard panel to cut engine vibrations intruding on the calm of the cabin. All diesel engines have also been fitted with sound-absorbing material to the engine block, oil pan and diesel particulate filter.

Upgraded range of Euro 6-compliant engines includes an all-new 1.0-litre ecoTurbo

The upgraded cee'd offers a wider choice of powertrains than before, with all engines now compliant with the Euro 6 emissions standard.

For the launch of the 2016 cee'd, Kia is introducing its all-new 1.0-litre ecoTurbo engine. This new downsized, three-cylinder power unit has been engineered to improve fuel consumption and emissions, while offering strong, willing performance and immediate responses to driver input.

Kia's new turbocharged engine, developed in-house at the company's Namyang R&D centre in Korea, features a high-pressure direct injection system, advanced engine cooling and an integrated exhaust manifold for cleaner emissions and efficient packaging. Immediate engine response and highly-efficient combustion were cornerstones of the engine's development, fulfilling Kia's sustainable engine downsizing strategy.

This is the first of Kia's upcoming range of downsized engines to make its debut in Europe, and will be available with a choice of two power outputs. In its basic state, the new engine produces 100 ps (98bhp) and 172 Nm torque, while the higher powered version produces 120 ps (118bhp) and the same 172 Nm torque. The maximum engine torque is available from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm, making it an incredibly flexible engine under all driving conditions. Pending homologation later this year, both 100 ps and 120 ps are expected to deliver the lowest CO2 emissions of any gasoline-engined cee'd to date.

The diesel cee'd continues to be a popular choice for European buyers, and the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine has also been upgraded for its application in the new model. A new high-pressure injection system and continuously-controlled variable oil pump reduce friction losses in the engine, with the lower powered 110 ps version available across both the standard cee'd and new GT Line range. CO2 emissions fall to 102 g/km, or just 94 g/km when fitted with Kia ISG (Idle Stop/Go).

Available with both the enhanced cee'd range and the new GT Line variant, the higher powered 1.6 CRDi engine now produces 136 ps (up from 128 ps), and 285 Nm torque (improved from 265 Nm). With the small increase in performance, the engine's full torque is now available from just 1,500 (down from 1,900, when equipped with a manual transmission), resulting in more effortless acceleration under all conditions.

The Kia cee'd will continue to be offered with the 128 ps 1.6-litre GDI (petrol) and 100 ps 1.4-litre MPI (multi-point injection) gasoline engines, as well as the popular 1.4-litre CRDi diesel engine, all of which now also meet the Euro 6 emissions standard.

All-new seven-speed double-clutch transmission

The upgraded cee'd features a second new technology debut for Kia, with the arrival of the brand's all-new seven-speed double-clutch transmission (DCT), available exclusively on models equipped with the higher powered 136 ps 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine. Kia's new DCT is capable of handling the higher torque outputs of the modified engine fitted to the upgraded cee'd, with a higher capacity than the six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission it replaces.

Like the new 1.0-litre ecoTurbo power unit, Kia's new DCT has also been developed in-house and has been engineered with low fuel consumption and a sporty driving feel when in manual mode, and with comfort and smoothness when left in automatic mode.

Drivers specifying the new DCT will benefit from faster gear changes than a traditional automatic transmission, as well as lower running costs. When equipped with the new DCT, the 1.6-litre CRDi engine emits just 109 g/km carbon dioxide, compared to the 145 g/km recorded by the earlier engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

The wider cee'd range continues to be offered with a six-speed manual transmission, with the 1.6-litre GDI engine also available with a six-speed double-clutch transmission.

Improved ride comfort, handling, NVH

Engineers have made a number of modifications to the suspension and chassis of the upgraded cee'd in order to improve ride comfort and handling.

The principal enhancement to the upgraded cee'd is the addition of a new torque vectoring system, which reduces understeer by partially applying the brake to the inner wheel under cornering. The motor-driven power steering system now results in more linear and predictable steering inputs, while changes to front wheel geometry have improved on-centre steering feel. Finally, new stoppers on the rear strut mount insulators and new outer ball joint on the rear stabiliser bar help to improve ride comfort on poor surfaces by minimising vibrations through the suspension.

The NVH characteristics of the suspension in the upgraded cee'd have also been improved slightly, with the adoption of a hollow stabiliser bar, replacing the previous solid stabiliser, to reduce road noise.

New safety and convenience features include Kia Connected Services

Kia development teams have added a range of new comfort, convenience and safety features to further improve the modern, high-tech appeal of the Kia cee'd.

Safety is a priority for Kia, and the popular cee'd is now available with an optional Speed Limit Information Function (SLIF), which uses a camera to identify speed limit signs and display them beside the speedometer and on the navigation screen. Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) are also available as options, using sensors to monitor the side and rear of the cee'd for other vehicles in the driver's blind spots and give the driver a visual or audible alert.

Drivers can enjoy easier parking with the 2016 cee'd, with an upgraded Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS), depending on market. SPAS uses side-mounted ultrasonic sensors and front and rear parking sensors, as well as the electric power steering system, to identify a suitable parking space and automatically steer the car into the space. In the latest cee'd, the system can now steer the car into perpendicular spaces, in addition to parallel parking. The parallel exit function allows the cee'd to steer itself out of tight road-side spaces.

The upgraded cee'd also features Kia's latest audio-visual navigation (AVN) system for a more modern appearance on the cee'd's 7.0-inch central fascia display. The AVN system also supports the addition of DAB digital radio, which is available across a number of European markets.

A new addition to the cee'd is a wide range of multimedia information services, Kia Connected Services. Provided by TomTom, the new connectivity features include live traffic updates, speed camera locations and alerts, local search and weather forecasts. Kia Connected Services will be introduced to the cee'd range in line with the launch of the new GT Line specification, due across Europe in Q4.

Wide range of updates to high-powered GT models

The high-powered cee'd GT and pro_cee'd GT have been upgraded with modifications to its powertrain and dynamics. These changes ensure the GT remains among the most compelling - and best-looking - cars in the C-segment ‘hot hatch' class.

For the exterior, GT models retain much of the visual aggression that differentiates them from the standard cee'd range, including the stylish ‘ice-cube' daytime running lights and sporty bodywork. The 2016 cee'd GT is now also available with a new 18-inch wheel design.

On the inside, cee'd GT and pro_cee'd GT models are now fitted with a newly-designed flat-bottomed steering wheel with a subtle GT logo and concave central design, while the black engine start-stop button from the standard cee'd is replaced with an aluminium button. Chrome accents have also been added to in-door power window switches. Combined with the car's standard RECARO suede bucket seats, these enhancements make the car stand out even further from other models in the range.

A new electronic sound generator, fitted exclusively to GT models and activated when drivers press the ‘GT Mode' button on the steering wheel. Effectively synthesising the 1.6-litre T-GDI's fast-revving engine note into the cabin, the sound generator adds a new element to the driving experience and brings the driver closer to the car's higher level of performance. With GT Mode switched off, the sound generator produces a quiet and moderate engine note.

The high-powered 1.6-litre T-GDI engine found in the cee'd GT and pro_cee'd GT receives a new turbocharger system. With increased air pressure serving to boost low-end torque and engine response, acceleration from 0-100 kph is improved by 0.1 to 7.6 seconds. Drivers will also enjoy greater in-gear acceleration as a result of the new turbocharger. The 1.6-litre T-GDI produces 204 ps and 265 Nm, with CO2 emissions reduced slightly to 170 g/km.

As well as the addition of torque vectoring and NVH improvements to the standard car, Kia engineers have further upgraded the dynamics of the cee'd GT. New optional enlarged front disc brakes, increased in size from 300 mm to 320 mm, result in higher heat capacity and improved resistance to brake fade. The 100-0 kph stopping distance in the upgraded cee'd GT has been reduced from 36.4 metres to 35.0 metres.

2016 Kia cee'd range on-sale from July 2015

The upgraded Kia cee'd will be available from dealers across Europe from July 2015, offering the company's unique 7-Year, 100,000 mile warranty as standard.

Designed and engineered in Europe before launching originally in December 2006, the Kia cee'd model family is manufactured at Kia's production facility in Žilina, Slovakia, and remains one of the brand's bestselling models, with more than 75,000 sold across Europe in 2014.

In May, Kia produced its 1,000,000th cee'd, a major milestone since its introduction to the European market nine years ago.

Debut for Kia’s downsized 1.0-litre T-GDI three-cylinder engine

For the launch of the cee’d GT Line, Kia is introducing its all-new 1.0-litre ‘T-GDi’ engine, a downsized, three-cylinder power unit engineered to improve fuel consumption and emissions while offering strong, willing performance and immediate responses to driver input. This is the first of Kia’s upcoming range of downsized engines to make its debut in Europe.

The 1.0-litre T-GDi engine produces 120 ps and 172 Nm torque, and has been engineered to deliver lower CO2 emissions than the 1.6-litre GDI engine found in other cee’d models, pending final homologation closer to the GT Line’s launch. The 1.0-litre cee’d GT Line is also equipped with Kia’s fuel-saving ISG system as standard which improves emissions and fuel economy, and is available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Kia’s new turbocharged engine, developed in-house at the company’s Namyang R&D centre in Korea, features a high-pressure direct injection system, advanced engine cooling and an integrated exhaust manifold for cleaner emissions and efficient packaging.

Immediate engine response and highly-efficient combustion were cornerstones of the engine’s development, fulfilling Kia’s sustainable engine downsizing strategy. The all-new 1.0-litre T-GDi engine will be fitted to other vehicles in Kia’s European model line-up in future.

More powerful and efficient diesel engine

The cee’d’s 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine has also been upgraded for its application in the new GT Line variant, with power increased from 128 to 133 ps and torque from 265 to 285 Nm. With the small increase in performance, the engine’s full torque is now available from lower engine speeds for more effortless acceleration under all road conditions.

Despite the increase in power and performance, however, CO2 emissions are expected to fall slightly once the homologation process is complete.

All-new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission

The new cee’d GT Line features a second new technology debut for Kia, with the arrival of the brand’s all-new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Available on GT Line models equipped with the 133 ps 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine, Kia’s new DCT is capable of handling torque outputs up to 300 Nm – higher than the six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission it replaces.

Like the new 1.0-litre T-GDi power unit, Kia’s new DCT has also been developed in-house and has been engineered with low fuel consumption and a sporty driving feel when in manual mode, and with comfort and smoothness when left in automatic mode.

Drivers specifying the new DCT for their cee’d GT Line will benefit from faster gear changes than a traditional automatic transmission, as well as lower running costs. It is anticipated that the new DCT will offer lower emissions and higher fuel economy compared to the outgoing six-speed automatic gearbox.

Kia’s R&D teams have targeted a three to five per cent improvement in acceleration (0 to 100 kph) and five to seven per cent improvement to fuel efficiency. After the cee’d GT Line, the new seven-speed DCT will be available on a number of Kia models in future, with similar gains expected in fuel efficiency and performance depending on its application in different models.

Kia cee’d GT Line on-sale in Q4 2015

The Kia cee’d GT Line will be available from Kia dealers across Europe in Q4 2015, offering the company’s unique 7-Year, 100,000 mile warranty as standard.

Designed and engineered in Europe, the Kia cee’d family – incorporating the hatchback, wagon and pro_cee’d – continue to be manufactured at Kia’s production facility in Žilina, Slovakia. With 75,960 units sold across Europe in 2014, the cee’d remains one of the brand’s bestselling models across the region.

  • World premiere for Kia’s new downsized 1.0-litre T-GDi engine
  • Developed in-house at Kia’s Namyang R&D centre
  • Newly-developed laser-drilled injectors enable more efficient combustion
  • Single-scroll turbocharger with electric scavenging system
  • Innovation dual-thermostat cooling for cylinder heads and engine block

Kia’s all-new 1.0-litre T-GDi (turbo gasoline direct injection) ‘Kappa’ engine will make its world production debut at the 85th Salon International de l’Automobile in Geneva on 3 March 2015.

Kia’s new T-GDi Kappa engine embraces the industry trend towards smaller capacity, higher efficiency units which consume less fuel and emit fewer emissions – while still delivering responsive performance.

World production debut – the new Kia cee’d GT Line

The first car to benefit from Kia’s new 1.0-litre T-GDi engine will be the new cee’d GT Line range. In this application, the new Kappa engine will develop 120 ps and 172 Nm torque, and has been engineered to deliver lower CO2 emissions than the 1.6-litre GDi engine found in other cee’d models, pending homologation.

After the cee’d GT Line, which goes on sale across Europe in Q4 2015, the new 1.0-litre T-GDi engine will be made available on a range of other Kia models in future.

Fulfilling a sustainable engine downsizing strategy

The new power unit is the first of Kia’s upcoming range of downsized engines to make its debut in Europe, and has been developed in-house by Kia’s powertrain development team at its Namyang, Korea R&D centre.

Engineers’ key aims throughout development were to provide immediate engine response, highly-efficient combustion and access to maximum torque from low engine speeds. These represent the cornerstones of Kia’s wider strategy to develop downsized engines for its global model line-up.

Throughout the T-GDi’s development, Kia’s R&D teams have aimed for a 10 to 15 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency compared to the brand’s current 1.6-litre GDi engine.

More efficient combustion with high pressure fuel injection and improved air flow

The new downsized engine features a newly-developed laser-drilled injector, with six individual holes. Instead of consistently injecting the fuel-air mixture onto certain points within the combustion chamber, the laser-drilled holes, laid out in a pyramid shape, provide a more even spread of fuel and air throughout the cylinder. Backed by a high pressure pump, the new laser-drilled injectors are able to provide fuel injection pressure of up to 200 bar.

The adoption of a straight air intake port – instead of the gently curved port in Kia’s existing 1.6-litre GDi engine – further improves air flow to the combustion chamber for improved fuel efficiency. The straight air intake port ends in a sharper air intake throat, reducing air resistance at all stages of air intake to the engine, improving cylinder tumble flow for faster, more efficient combustion and suppressing engine knocking.

Single-scroll turbocharger with efficient electric scavenging motor

The T-GDi’s single-scroll turbocharger is paired with an electric waste-gate motor, which improves the turbocharger’s performance with a highly efficient air scavenging strategy. As well as scavenging clean air for the engine to re-use for combustion, it is able to open the waste-gate at the same time to improve waste air flow.

This innovative system allows for greater low-end torque, more immediate engine response from any throttle position, and improved fuel economy under higher engine loads. In the Kia cee’d GT Line, the engine’s maximum 172 Nm torque is available across a wide 1,500-4,100 rpm range, with maximum power arriving at 6,000 rpm.

Lower exhaust gas temperatures and split cooling

The engine is also fitted with an integrated exhaust manifold, which lowers the exhaust gas temperature slightly. As well as improving high speed, high load fuel economy, lower temperatures also result in cleaner emissions by allowing the catalytic converter to operate more effectively.

The engine’s temperature is closely regulated with the adoption of a new dual-thermostat split cooling system. This allows the engine block and cylinder heads to be cooled independent of one another, the main thermostat controlling the flow of engine coolant to cylinder heads above 88°C to reduce knocking, and an engine block thermostat shutting off coolant flow above 105°C to reduce mechanical friction and aid efficiency.

  • Kia launches its first seven–speed DCT in new cee’d GT Line models
  • Developed in-house at Kia’s Namyang R&D
  • Innovative hollow double-gear input shaft minimises loss of torque
  • Improved fuel economy and more decisive acceleration
  • New DCT will appear on other Kia models in the future

Kia has announced application of the all-new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) to a production model for the first time, the new Kia cee’d GT Line – which makes its global debut at the 85th Salon International de l’Automobile in Geneva on 3 March 2015.

Production debut – the new Kia cee’d GT Line

The new DCT will be paired with the cee’d GT Line’s 133 ps 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine. Capable of handling larger torque outputs than Kia’s existing six-speed torque converter automatic (up to 300 Nm), the DCT’s fast-shifting nature is ideally suited to the new cee’d GT Line’s sporty image.

Drivers will benefit from faster gear changes than a traditional torque converter automatic transmission, as well as lower running costs. It is anticipated that the new DCT will offer lower emissions and higher fuel economy, pending European homologation tests later in 2015. It will be made available on a wider range of Kia models in the future.

Developed in-house for greater fuel economy and acceleration

The new transmission is the first of its type from the brand, and has been developed in-house by Kia’s research and development teams at its Namyang, Korea R&D centre. More fuel efficient than Kia’s existing six-speed automatic transmission, the new DCT has been engineered with low fuel consumption and a sporty driving feel when in manual mode, and with comfort and smoothness when left in automatic mode.

Throughout its development, Kia’s R&D teams targeted a three to five per cent improvement in acceleration (0 to 100 kph) and five to seven per cent improvement to fuel efficiency, depending on model.

Innovative hollow double-gear input shaft allows quick shifts

The DCT is made up of two dry clutches, each fitted with electric motor-driven clutch actuator to improve responsiveness, and an innovative hollow double-gear input shaft. The hollow shaft itself allows the system to quickly engage even gears, while a solid shaft that runs through the middle operates odd gears. This crossed gear shifting enables continuous power delivery and more efficient packaging, two development cornerstones for the engineering teams behind the project.

The hollow shaft mechanism lets the DCT operate sequentially, the car anticipating the next gear that the driver is likely to need next under acceleration or braking, or jump immediately to any of its seven forward gears (and reverse). This is particularly useful under kickdown or heavy braking, allowing the driver to remain in control of the vehicle at all times.

The continuous power delivery of the DCT minimises the loss of torque and forward motion by the powertrain during gear shifts, resulting in more decisive acceleration and a smoother drive. This contributes towards the transmission’s boost to performance in all road conditions in its first application in the cee’d GT Line.

Combined with an increase in power from 128 to 133 ps, the DCT’s seven gears allow the GT Line’s diesel engine to operate at its most efficient speeds at all times. With the engine’s torque increased from 265 to 285 Nm, the new DCT is engineered to effectively manage outputs of up to 300 Nm, achieving a better balance between the engine’s improved, more effortless performance and potential for greater fuel economy.

Reduction of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) has also been a focus for the team behind the DCT’s development, with an external damper ensuring a higher level of refinement for the new transmission.

After the cee’d GT Line, which will go on sale across Europe in Q4 2015, the new seven-speed DCT will be made available on a range of other Kia models.

Sorpresa da Kia, che presenta allestimento sportivo e frullino tre cilindri da 120 CV e 172 Nm di coppia su cee'd.

Il cambio è il DCT a sette rapporti di cui parlavamo ieri su i30 Facelift.

A giudicare dai fari, dalla mascherina di diverso disegno e dal fatto che sia disponibile dal Q4 di quest'anno, è anche antcipazione del facelift.

Aggiunta press release dettagliata.

Bella macchina....e sembra promettere bene nei confronti della concorrenza come cubatura e potenza...ormai come linee si sono europeizzati al 100%

Ho appena aggiunto la foto del posteriore della Wagon. Imho molto positivo il lavoro fatto con le ottiche del nuovo faro posteriore.

Davvero bella! Una domanda: Questi nuovi mille come sono alla lunga? Cioè qualcuno ,ipotizzo possessore di mille ecoboost data l' "anzianità" di progetto ,può già avere qualche dato in mano dopo qualche migliaio di km? Sarebbe imho interessante

ma ha senso questa versione ora, visto che in giro ci sono già i muletti del fl?

"Ora" é relativo dato che sará in commercio da fine anno, periodo che andrà a coincidere anche con il facelift di cee'd, di cui questa pare portare qualche dettaglio.
