Fine-tuning an already competitive Ride & Handling package

When they developed the original Kia cee'd, Kia's European chassis engineers based in Germany were determined to ensure that the newcomer was among the 'segment-best' for ride and handling - targeting the Ford Focus and VW Golf as the models to match or beat.

Now, with new Kia cee'd those engineers have taken the opportunity to fine tune the C-segment Kia's already competitive ride and handling package with minor modifications to the suspension and running gear that deliver valuable customer benefits for real-world, everyday motoring.

While retaining the same subframe-mounted MacPherson Strut (front) and Kia's subframe-mounted 'in-wheel multi-link' (rear) fully independent suspension layouts, engineers were briefed to improve riding comfort and steering response, without altering the car's overall handling balance.

After extensive testing, revised suspension settings were devised for new Kia cee'd including softer front and rear springs and dampers, reduced friction in the front strut springs, modified anti-roll bars and suspension bushes, plus new bump stops.
