Kia Motors Corporation has revealed the first ‘preview image™ of its exciting new Kia Pro-cee™d three-door hatchback model which will make its World Premiere at this year™s Frankfurt International Motor Show on 11 September.

Based closely on the earlier pro_cee™d concept car shown at the Paris Motor Show in 2006, the new production model has been developed by Kia™s design team in Europe under the direction of Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer.

“Longer, lower and lighter than its five-door sister car, the new Kia Pro-cee™d is going to be a great drive,” enthused Mr. Jean-Charles Lievens, Senior Vice President Kia Motors Europe. “Combining real style and genuine practicality, our new three-door cee™d is sure to delight existing Kia customers and attract a new group of European consumers who have not yet considered our brand.”

Manufactured in Slovakia, the Pro-cee™d will be the third member of the Kia cee™d family, joining the popular cee™d five-door and recently launched wagon models to make Kia an especially strong challenger for C-segment sales in Europe.

Production of the Pro-cee™d model range is scheduled to begin in November with first customer sales during the early months of 2008.
