Kia's Slovakian factory in Zilina has started production of the new Kia cee'd Sportswagon, meaning 285,000 cars will roll out of there this year.
The five-door cee'd Sportswagon, the car previously known as the cee'd SW, has load space of 528 litres with the seats up and 1,642 with the seats down. Kia is promising "a sophisticated interior design", "high-quality interior materials" and "class-leading levels of refinement" with the Sportswagon, as well as two petrol and two diesel engines.
Also soon to come out of the Zilina factory is the new three-door pro_cee'd (they are mad for some kooky punctuation at Kia), a small, economical runaround. We can expect that one in early 2013.
Kia's UK showrooms will feature the cee'd Sportswagon from next month. As yet, no prices or UK specs have been announced so at this stage, all we can do is look at the picture and marvel at the cargo space.
