[VIDEO] 2013 Kia Cee’d promo for Italy released image

Kia’s Italian division has recently released a new promotional video for the 2013 Cee’d hatchback, anticipating the model’s launch in the European country.

The new generation of the Kia Cee’d is 10 mm lower and 50 mm longer than its predecessor, with its body being 10 mm narrower. The cargo room in the model has increased by 40 liters too, according to the car manufacturer. The 2013 Kia Cee’d is already available for pre-order in some markets and, for example, standard features for the model in Germany include the six-speaker audio system, electrically adjustable side mirrors, electric front windows, central locking, multifunction steering wheel, daytime running lights, cruise control, traction control, Electronic Stability Control and Hill Assist, and the same features will also be available in Italy on the same trim level.

Future owners of the 2013 Kia Cee’d will have to choose between two petrol engines and two diesel units, along with four trim levels: the Attract, the Edition 7, the Vision and the Spirit. The South Korean based automaker says that the entry-level Attract will get the 100 horsepower engine. Prices for the new Kia Cee’d generation in Germany start at just under 14,000 euros, but the model is expected to be a little more expensive in Italy, coming at 16,400 euros for the entry-level version. The Station Wagon version of the Kia Cee’d will arrive in Europe this autumn, followed by the new Pro Cee’d.
