The stunningly attractive, precisely styled show car, named cee'd (pronounced 'seed'), is based on the forthcoming all-new C-segment model which Kia will begin building at its first-ever European assembly plant in Slovakia from December 2006. With its tough appearance, combining strongly solid forms with sensitively flowing lines, jewel-like detailing and a broad stance, cee'd points towards the future elements of Kia's evolving design language.

The cee'd has several of the core design elements of two earlier Kia cars - the Sorento SUV and A-segment Picanto. With this concept car, Kia is making these design elements even more understandable to the public. cee'd is a new stage in Kia design, the beginning of communicating its new design language. cee'd features flowing lines carried through strong forms. The major flow-line runs from low on the nose spoiler, around the grille, over the bonnet, up the A-pillar, along the roof rail to the tailgate spoiler, down the C-pillar and around the rear bumper - enveloping the whole car.

At the Geneva Show, cee'd is finished in 'English Pewter' bespoke exterior paint, blended to give the external surfaces a unique lustre that is echoed by the interior. The concept car will be displayed on a low, rotating glass turntable so that visitors can fully appreciate the interior styling, as well as the exterior form. The extended, flared wheel arches envelop bespoke 19-inch diameter polished aluminium wheels sporting 265/30 R19 low-profile tyres.
