Built on the cee’d of good ideas

LESS than six years ago the Kia cee’d was launched to critical acclaim.

Now, Bolton Kia is delighted to be launching an all-new second-generation cee’d to build on its predecessor’s pioneering work. The new Kia cee’d will be available from £14,395 tomorrow (June 1). Alex Purdie, Dealer Principal, Bolton Kia, said: “The first cee’d model changed everything for Kia. The quality was like nothing ever seen before from the manufacturer. Now, every model that Kia produces manages to turn heads, and the new cee’d will be no different; new model cee’d proves that Kia is serious about good-looking cars and quality engineering that delivers low running costs and an enjoyable drive.”

The cee’d was the first car to be offered with Kia’s industry-leading seven-year, 100,000-mile transferable warranty – a feature now standard on every model in the range, and will be standard for the all-new cee’d launched this month.

The second-generation cee’d raises the benchmark for fuel-efficiency in its class, with average fuel consumption reductions of 4 per cent and CO2 emissions as low as 97g/km for the 1.6-litre diesel model – a remarkably low figure for a non-hybrid car.

All 1.6-litre manual versions of the cee’d are equipped with ISG (Intelligent Stop & Go), Kia’s engine stop/start system which is a major contributor to the efficiency improvements of the new range. By shutting down the engine when the car comes to rest and the driver puts the gearlever into neutral and releases the clutch, it ensures that no fuel is used and no CO2 is emitted while waiting in traffic. The engine restarts as soon as the clutch is pressed.

The new cee’d is available in four trim grades and all feature a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including air conditioning, a cooled glovebox, and speed-sensitive auto door locking.

As with all Kias, the cee’d comes with Kia’s unique seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty, which is fully transferable to subsequent owners.
