The digital sketch is said to represent a possible addition to the next-generation Cee'd family.

Kia has released a teaser image for a sleek shooting-brake concept that will be brought to the Frankfurt Motor Show.The company says the concept is tied to the Pro_cee'd hatchback, though its Porsche Panamera-like profile and wider stance appears closer in size to the Optima Sportswagon.

"Reworked and reimagined for a new generation of driver, it puts forward a bold vision for a potential member of the next-generation cee'd family," the company says.

The next-generation Cee'd will presumably be based on the same platform that underpins the latest Hyundai i30 (Elantra GT), which is only marginally longer, wider and shorter.

Additional details will presumably be announced at Kia's September 12 media event.
