The new Kia cee’d Sportswagon (Estate) goes on sale in the UK today priced from £16,895 with engine and trim options as the cee’d. Kia updated the cee’d – the car most know best from Top Gear’s SIARPC – earlier this year, and now we get the arrival of the estate version – the Kia cee’d Sportswagon – in UK Kia’s showrooms. In all the ways that matter, the cee’d Sportswagon is simply the new cee’d with an extra bit bolted on the back.Fri, 26 Jun 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Newcastle and cars: for many, that phrase brings to mind the 1971 British cult gangster movie ‘Get Carter', starring Michael Caine. The city isn't obviously associated with cars and the Trinity Centre car park famously used in the movie is about to be demolished as part of major regeneration work that the city has seen over the last 15 years. Northumbria University's magnificent new School of Design, which opened just two years ago, is a typical example of the exciting architecture now emerging in this city and CDN decided to pay a visit to catch up with this fast-developing UK design school.Thu, 25 Feb 2010 00:00:00 -0800
