In response to fierce competition in the compact class, the Ceed is longer, lower and wider than its predecessors. The advanced chassis lays the foundation for the rakish forms of the hatchback. Its extended bonnet, cab-backward stance, assertive horizontal beltline and longer rear overhang all work harmoniously together to lend the five-door vehicle an athletic appearance. This visual distinctiveness is further underlined by an unadorned and well-balanced profile.
Statement by the Jury
The sporty appearance of the Kia Ceed is defined by elegant lines and features that have been specifically tailored to road suitability.
