Kia has teased its upcoming ProCeed ahead of its Paris Motor Show reveal in October, revealing its new shooting brake's shapely rump.
There might not have been too many tears shed when the outgoing ProCeed quietly shuffled off Australia's new-car mortal coil way back in 2015, but something tells me we wouldn't have let this new one go quite so easily.
The teaser image doesn't reveal much more than a shapely - and decidedly premium-looking - rump, complete with full-width LED strips and a tiny spoiler mounted above the rear windscreen. But it's enough to whet our appetites for the new-look ProCeed.
Plus this all-new version makes much more sense than the old one, with the three-door coupe body shape axed in favour of a sleek five-door shooting brake design.
We know little else for now, other than Kia in Australia is on the record as saying the door was "shut, but not locked" on the ProCeed, so there is some chance of an eventual local debut. It seems unlikely, though, what with Kia HQ describing the new model as "designed, developed and engineered exclusively for Europe".
The new ProCeed will be revealed on September 13 before its official unveiling at the Paris Motor Show in October.
