Kia reveals XCeed crossover ahead of launch

Kia XCeed

Kia has revealed the XCeed, a crossover version of the Ceed that will be launched later this month.

The new model, dubbed “crossover utility vehicle” will rival the new Ford Focus Active and completes the Kia Ceed family.

It’s meant to represent a sporty alternative to traditional larger SUVs, like the Kia Sportage.

The XCeed has an elevated ride height, but a lower hip point, to give the car a sportier driving position but also a clearer view of the road ahead.

Kia says the XCeed will offer comparable levels of interior space and luggage capacity to Europe’s best-selling SUVs.

Emilio Herrera, chief operating officer at Kia Motors Europe, said: “The sporty design and demeanour of the new Kia XCeed CUV makes it more innately desirable than many taller, larger SUVs. Yet it offers this without compromising on versatility, with its intelligent packaging achieving the cabin and storage space of an SUV in a sportier body and more compact footprint.”

The all-new Kia XCeed will be revealed in full on 26 June. UK on-sale date, specification and pricing will be confirmed in due course.
