The facelifted Kia Cee'd is scheduled to be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show on 15 September and takes styling cues from the Kia Soul.

The pictures show revisions that include new bumpers, a new bonnet, new headlamp designs and side mirrors with integral indicators.

Interior changes include a new design of steering wheel, new air-con controls, a revised audio system and updated gauges on the instrument panel.

Kia will also unveil the new Sorento off-roader at Frankfurt, along with its first mini-MPV, codenamed KV3 and based on the No3 concept car unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March.
