Hyundai/KIA is obviously playing it safe with the cars that have been in the market for some generations, while being more daunting with their new launched small SVs cars, Stinger, etc. It makes sense, i guess.

What's the demographic? Sensible retirees?

There's no sense of dynamism, nothing to make you look twice, and it genuinely does seem older than the car it's supposed to be replacing, a problem shared by its Hyundai i30 sibling. The detailing might be ever so slightly tidier and more modern, but the overall design lacks the "poke you in the eyeballs" impact of the outgoing car.

Maybe Clarkson, Hammond, and May need to do a spoof on the C-apostrophe-d similar to their outrageously funny segment on Peugeot drivers.

Play safe is politely said, this looks a generation loder than the car it replaces, kind of like the missing link between generation 1 and the dynmaic generation 2.

Them, and fleets. Those seeking style will buy a Sportage of Stonic likely anyway, but given how attractive the current car still looks in and outside, this si still disappointing,.

Minimal camo, and the good quality of photos give us a pretty good feel; It#s Hyundai i30/Elantra GT with Kia Niro detailing.

Geneva debut confirmed, plus you usual - very optimistic - teaser sketch; More important, teh name will loose it's apostrophe, from now on only "Ceed"

Interestingly, the Ceed (now without the apostrophe) will not share the Forte's interior, despite now sharing platform and many exterior panels; Whilst the Foprte interior clearly shares it's DNA (and likely basic structure) with the platform mate Hyundai i30/Elantra GT and also the smaller Rio and Stonic models, this seems more like the Sportage form the inside,s o actually a bit older.

It might be "older" design-wise than the Forte, but I'd take this over the Forte's interior any day. Hopefully this gets brought to the US as the Forte hatchback and we get the interior that way.
