The Kia Cee'd is a front wheel drive small family car released in the European market by the Korean manufacturer Kia Motors in December 2006superseding the Kia Spectraand available as a five-door hatchback, three-door hatchback ('pro_cee'd'), and five-door estate ('cee'd SW') with a choice of up to four engines (two petrol and two diesel), three trim levels (1, 2 and 3 previously S, GS, LS and SR) and either manual or automatic transmissions. The Cee'd was designed in Frankfurt, Germany, with Mikls Kovcs leading the design team. Cars are manufactured in the Kia factory in Teplika nad Vhom, Slovakia. The Cee'd shares the same platform as the Hyundai i30, as does a redesigned version of the Cee'd, marketed elsewhere as the Kia Forte, which is not sold in Europe (except for Russia, where the Cee'd and the Forte are available together). As of 2010, the Cee'd received Kia's new corporate grille, known as the Tiger Nose, designed by Kia's design chief Peter Schreyer.
