This is the first official image of the new generation of the Kia Cee’d SW or Station Wagon that will be formally introduced alongside the five door hatchback model of the series at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday. Despite the lengthened rear end that adds some extra space to the boot, from what we can tell by looking at this single picture, the estate variant seems to retain the elegant lines of the hatchback model, with which it shares the same 2,650mm (104.3 in.) wheelbase.

The Kia cee’d Sportswagon was revealed alongside the cee’d hatchback at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, and matches it throughout for style, quality, technology, equipment and safety. Like its predecessor, it was designed and engineered at Kia’s Frankfurt design studios and technical centre, and is made at the company’s Žilina plant in Slovakia. The cee’d Sportswagon is exclusively for European markets.

Kia has been doing some great things with design lately, and the full host of new styling elements has made its way down to the new C-segment offering. We like the large headlamps that stretch far up the hood line, accented with LED running lamps and pronounced fog lamps below. The unique, 18 inch wheels look cool and give the Cee’d a sporty touch, and the whole design is rounded off in back with a squared off rump. Speaking of the rear, Kia also saw it fit to debut a new Cee’d wagon, called the SW, offering a substantial cargo area for those who need more functionality than a standard hatch can offer.

The Kia Ceed SW has been one of Kia’s leading models in the fleet market, and this year it is outselling the hatchback among business users. With more daring styling and advanced technology features, the cee’d Sportswagon is expected to have even more widespread appeal among user choosers. With the fleet market so dominant, the cee’d Sportswagon will be sold exclusively in the UK with advanced and highly efficient turbodiesel engines. With their high torque outputs and low operating and running costs, they are ideally suited to the heavy loads and high mileages often inflicted on estate cars by business operators.

Kia has taken the wraps off the 2013 Cee’d. The Cee’d SW, the wagon version, was also unveiled at the show (see live photos) but Kia stated full details would be released closer to its on sale date later this year. Looking significantly improved, the model is described as a “game changing car” that is “more sophisticated, more efficient [and] more refined” than its predecessor. Starting with the styling, the car adopts a new front fascia with a prominent grille and LED infused headlights. Further back, there’s a unique greenhouse, a sloping roofline and a tailgate mounted spoiler.

2013 Kia Ceed SW Price :
As a result the 1.4 litre Kia cee’d Sportswagon is capable of 67.3mpg and has CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km, which means a Benefit in Kind (BIK) taxation rate of 15 per cent in 2012-2013. Manual 1.6 litre versions, with CO2 emissions of 116g/km, fall into the 17 per cent BIK band, and are almost as sparing in their use of fuel, with official combined economy of 64.2mpg. With prices starting at £16,895 and rising to £24,795, and low maintenance and insurance costs, the new Kia cee’d Sportswagon will be an inexpensive car to run for business motorists and fleet operators, as well as private consumers.

2013 Kia Ceed SW Interior :
The improvements in quality in the cee’d Sportswagon are actual as well as perceived. The tight shutlines would not look out of place on a premium price luxury car, while most versions have an elegant chrome window surround. The entry level model has a chromed grille surround, while all other versions have a graphite chrome surround with a black high gloss mesh grille.

First impressions are matched when stepping into the cabin. Soft touch surfaces, high quality materials and lidded storage areas, subtle red ambient lighting, tactile door grab handles and precise panel gaps combine to give the interior of the cee’d Sportswagon a solid, mature, made from a mould feel. This is emphasised by the improved refinement of the latest car. Torsional body strength has been increased by 51 per cent over the previous model. The windscreen is now bonded in rather than mounted in a seal, thus shutting out more exterior noise and adding to body rigidity. There is more filling in the pillar areas, new style weather strips around the door frames, restyled door mirrors and thicker front door glass. All play a part in adding to refinement. Even the sealing strips on the door sills have been modified to make it more difficult for noise to enter the cabin.

All models from the ‘1’ feature a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including luggage area under floor tray and side tray, a retractable and removable load cover, a boot light and a rear 12 volt power socket and roof rails. Also standard are electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment and a height adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, steering wheel mounted controls, front electric windows with auto up and down function, daytime running lights, remote central locking, cooled glovebox, flat folding 60:40 split rear seats, ambient front lighting, an iPod compatible audio system with radio and CD player, USB port and Bluetooth connectivity, ESC and VSM, HAC (Hill start Assist Control), six airbags, speed sensitive auto door locking and alloy wheels on all 1.6 litre versions.

cee’d Sportswagon ‘2’ adds cornering lights, LED daytime running lights and rear combination lamps, electrically folding and heated door mirrors with LED indicators and kerbside lights, leather trim on the steering wheel, gearshifter and handbrake, greater use of chrome highlights, a rear centre armrest, all round electric windows, luggage net, cruise control with speed limiter, reversing sensors and the Flex Steer function. cee’d Sportswagon ‘3’ has in addition privacy glass, automatic headlights with a ‘follow me home’ function, rain sensing front wipers with de icing elements, a height adjustable front passenger’s seat, electric lumbar support on both front seats, black and silver seat cloth, auto dimming rear view mirror, dual zone automatic air conditioning with two step air flow control and a seven inch touchscreen satellite navigation with European mapping, UK postcode entry with built in colour reversing camera.

2013 Kia Ceed SW Exterior :
To ensure that the cee’d Sportswagon has the lean, lithe silhouette that its name suggests, it is not only a fraction longer than the previous cee’d SW but also 10mm narrower and 40mm lower, while still managing to offer full five seater family space. Unusually for an estate car in its class, it has different rear doors to the cee’d hatchback so that the stylish upward sweep of the lower window graphic can continue all the way to the rear of the car without making the cabin dark or claustrophobic for passengers travelling in the back.

As with the new cee’d hatchback, the wheelbase one of the longest in class at 2650mm is unchanged, but the track widths have increased by 17mm at the front and 27mm at the rear to give the car a sportier stance and, along with revised suspension geometry, greater high speed stability and cornering prowess. The cee’d Sportswagon remains unusual in its class in having fully independent front and rear suspension, with inherent advantages for ride and handling. These have been honed even further in the new car.

Higher specification models also have sliding aluminium luggage area rails and straps plus a high level luggage barrier net to secure objects and prevent them from falling into the passenger compartment. Roof rails are standard on every model so that extra cargo can be carried outside the car. The cee’d Sportswagon has a payload of up to 500kg and can tow a braked trailer of 1500kg (manual versions).

cee’d Sportswagon ‘4’ introduces the luggage area rail and partition system and barrier net, larger (17 inch) alloys, exterior illumination on the front door handles, black leather seats with contrasting grey inserts and three stage heating, a heated steering wheel and electronic parking brake, an engine stop/start button and smart entry system, rear air ventilation, a premium centre console with sliding cover and a speed and multi function LCD high definition colour display, while the cee’d ‘4 Tech’ is distinguished by its panoramic sunroof, 10 way power adjustable driver’s seat with memory, Parallel Park Assist System including front parking sensors, Lane Departure Warning System and Xenon adaptive front lighting system with automatic levelling.

2013 Kia Ceed SW Engine :
Detailed specifications haven’t been released, but the model will be offered with four different engines two petrols and two diesels that produce 90 PS (66 kW / 89 hp) to 135 PS (99 kW / 133 hp). The 1.6 liter GDI petrol engine will be offered with a new dual clutch transmission, while the 1.6 VGT diesel could have a fuel consumption rating as low as 3.7 L/100km (76.3 mpg UK / 63.6 mpg US).

The entry level 89bhp 1.4 CRDi engine develops 220Nm of torque from just 1500rpm, while the 126bhp 1.6 CRDi raises the torque output to 260Nm from only 1900rpm. Both transmissions, including the automatic offered with the 1.6 litre engine, are six-speed units, while manual gearbox models are fitted with Kia’s Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG) fuel saving, emissions reducing engine stop/start technology.

The 1.4 litre (1,396cc) CRDi engine develops 89bhp at 4000rpm and 220Nm of torque between 1,500 and 2,750rpm. This is sufficient to ensure sprightly performance with excellent driveability through a six speed manual gearbox. The 0-60mph dash takes 13.4 seconds and the top speed is 106mph. Yet with fuel economy of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km, retail buyers pay only £20 in Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) in year two, with nothing to pay in the first year, while business users enjoy a 15 per cent Benefit in Kind (BIK) taxation rating.

The 1.6 litre U2 engine is available with either a six speed manual or six speed automatic gearbox. In manual form with ISG, CO2 emissions are 116g/km. That means a BIK rate of 17 per cent. Fuel economy is 64.2mpg. It delivers excellent performance even when fully laden, with 0-60mph acceleration in only 10.8 seconds on the way to a top speed of 120mph. For buyers who prefer the convenience of an automatic gearbox, Kia offers the 1.6 CRDi with a six speed torque converter transmission in place of the four-speed unit which was available with the Kia Ceed SW. This brings down CO2 emissions from 154g/km to 149g/km and raises fuel economy by almost 2mpg to 50.4mpg. The diesel automatic version of the new cee’d Sportswagon can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 11.7 seconds and has a top speed of 115mph.
