GENEVA — The wraps came off the 2013 Kia Cee'd on Wednesday ahead of the car's world debut at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show in March.

Kia revealed a single image of the second-generation five-door hatch, which shares a platform in Europe with the Hyundai i30. Kia noted that the Cee'd gets chrome framed windows, "muscular lines" on the hood and a driver-oriented dashboard.

No powertrain details were revealed, but European media are speculating that the Cee'd will share the new turbocharged 1.6-liter GDI engine announced this week for the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

The redesigned Cee'd will go on sale in Europe in the second quarter of 2012.

Edmunds.com says: The redesigned Kia Cee'd looks a bit more grown up, but expect a deeper dive into the details in a few weeks.
