Well, by now many of you may have seen the teaser shots of the pro_cee’d 3-door hatchback (the third member of the cee’d family of European vehicles) floating around on the net.

So to wet your appetites a bit further before its official unveiling next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show, here’s some running footage of the concept version the pro_cee’d shown at last year’s Paris Motor Show.

As is the case with most of our recent concept vehicles, you can see that our design teams are making an all-out effort to ensure that the actual production models stay true to the intrinsic styling cues of their concept prototypes.

Click on the video below to see what all the hype is about.

    HELLO FROM GREECE!

  • I hope the Ceed comes to the syria soon. I own kia spectra and morning and would buy a Ceed if it were offered.

  • KONSTANTINOS

    Hello i am from Greece and i am a potentional buyer of KIA PRO CEED and i like to ask you if you are thinking to launch in the market the RIM that you have in the CONCEPT PRO CEED and also the LIGHTS. I have asked the representantive here in Greece and they didn’t know anything yet. Please send me a brochure or a leaflet of all the extras you can put in PRO CEED.

  • (gheyath) Since the cee’d has been developed for the European market, we have no plans to distribute the Kia cee’d or pro_cee’d in Syria.

    (KONSTANTINOS) The Kia pro_cee’d is set to launch in January. However, only a limited number of pro_cee’d concept cars were produced just for the show. We do not have plans for those accessories or parts for our mass production vehicles.

  • What about Australia? Acording to The Chronicle Kia is planning to release the cee’d in Australia. Could you confirm Kia Australia is negotiating with you to bring it there? Here is the article: http://www.kia-world.net/index.php/2007/11/10/ceed-heading-to-australia/

  • (himi) It is my understanding that there are no current plans to introduce the cee’d family of vehicles in markets other than Europe.

  • Chris

    Ive seen the Pro_cee’d concept and its absolutely stunning, however i was slightly disapointed with the production model, its a great looking car but lacks alot of the retro styling that the concept had.
    I would very much like to get my hands on a concept vehicle, are there any for sale? or could i get my hands on the alloys shown on the concept?

  • Daniel in Boston

    I really want to buy cee’d in U.S. I don’t know why KIA has no plan to launch cee’d in the us market…. I’m still holding my budget to wait for this vehicle..in Boston

  • Daniel in Boston

    I’ll wait until it comes into U.S market. i want to buy neigher stupid us muscle cars nor jap’s thin body cars with lots of troubles…..

    KIA must launch this amazing car in u.s ASAP!!!

  • kostask

    Hello again from Greece.Could someone ifnore me if kia is going to enolve in any racing activity?I m really interested in racing this car.Im looking forward for your answer, thank you in advance.

  • Maj Wirnaten from Denver

    KIA should be crazy not to bring Cee’d to the US. Also, I agree with many people who said that the mass production Pro_cee’d model lost its major appeal. Please bring the Pro_cee’d to the US, but please, please reconfigure its headlights and tailpipes back to the concept version!! If you do, I’ll buy it in a heat beat.
