ISG (Idle Stop & Go) available for three engines

In addition to using the latest technologies to enhance the efficiencies of each engine, Kia is offering its fuel-stretching ISG (Idle Stop & Go) system - which automatically switches off and then restarts the engine in congested city driving - as an option on 1.4 and 1.6 gasoline engines, plus the 1.6 U2 diesel engine.

Working in conjunction with other technologies, ISG helps reduce fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions, enabling certain cee'd models to cut their CO2 emissions to just 110 g/km (hatchback). Other innovative technologies fitted to new Kia cee'd include an Eco Driving Guide (gear-shift up/down indicator) to encourage an economical driving style and a power-saving alternator management system.
