A couple of months ago, Kia released the external images of its upcoming Golf fighter, the all new Kia Cee’d hatchback. Nearer to its launch at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the South Korean automaker gave us a preview of its interior.

The new C-segment model’s interior is said to give a premium feel. Looking at the photos, the leather stitching on the door panels certainly supports the statement. The silver trimming on the door handle adds a premium touch. Like its bigger brother, the Optima, the dashboard layout features a driver-orientated fascia with the main switchgear positioned towards the driver. The 3-spoke steering has a number of controls integrated in it, such as air conditioning and audio controls. It certainly looks sleeker than the clumsier 4-spoke helm of the Optima.

Kia has yet to announce the precise dimensions but it said that the new Cee'd is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor while retaining the same wheelbase. The engine line-up has not been confirmed but like its sister model, the Hyundai I30, it should be powered by a range of diesel and petrol engines ranging from 1.4 litres to 1.6 litres at launch in Europe. However, as highlighted in my previous post, Kia is rumoured to be developing a hot hatch version of the Cee’d, powered by a 1.6 litre direct-injected turbo lump.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
