12. September celebrates the latest Design study from Kia world premiere at the IAA. According to Kia, the Concept is an Outlook on the upcoming Cee`d. How close is the study to the actual Design of the Compact model, says Kia. Overall, the Koreans keep a low profile with regard to the new study. It is known that the vehicle was designed in the European design centre in Frankfurt, Germany.
The body shape is also completely new for Kia. It is a Design-combination of Kia Pro Cee`d, and a practical hatchback. The Koreans describe the car with the long, drawn-out rear as a "Hot Hatch". A sporting engine, such as the word "Hot" suggests, give you no information. The evidence suggests that the ILO study should also not be too close to the series.(dh)
