The Kia Cee'd is a small family car to be released in the European market by the Korean automaker Kia Motors in December 2006. It will be available from launch as a five-door hatchback, with a choice of five engines (three petrol and two diesel), four trim levels (LX, EX and TX) and either manual or automatic transmissions — and will be sold with the option of over 20 variants in some markets. Kia used the Paris Motor Show 2006 to preview a five-door estate variant in production form, and a sporty three-door concept, both of which will be on sale from Autumn 2007, combining with the five door hatchback model to give a model range of over 50 variants in some markets.
