The all-new Kia XCeed is a new urban crossover utility vehicle (CUV) from Kia Motors which combines compact SUV practicality with the sporty packaging and engaging handling of a hatchback.
Distinctive design features differentiate the PHEV variants from other petrol and diesel models in the Kia XCeed line-up. A new closed ‘tiger-nose’ grille at the front of the car aids aerodynamic efficiency, while a charging port is integrated into the left front wing. Grade ‘3’ models feature newly designed 16-inch alloy wheels, with the ‘First Edition’ fitted with larger 18-inch items.
The front and rear of the car also represent a departure from the ‘face’ of the conventional Ceed model family, differentiating the Kia XCeed from its stablemates. With a 1,826mm body (26mm wider than the Ceed five-door), the CUV presents a more assertive face, with a more prominent grille and larger lower air intake. The headlamps are newly designed, with a LED light signature sitting within a more angular shape, topped by a slim turn signal that flows back over the wheel arches.
Inside, the Kia XCeed PHEV carries over the contemporary cabin architecture, with a sculptured centre console oriented slightly towards the driver. With a lower hip point than a taller SUV, and raised ground clearance over a conventional hatchback, the Kia XCeed provides drivers with a sportier driving position allowing a better view of the road ahead. The new Plug-in Hybrid models feature a range of new functionalities to enhance usability for owners looking to extract the most out of the new powertrain.
The new Kia XCeed Plug-in Hybrids offer a compelling alternative to conventional petrol and diesel models. The new powertrain combines an 8.9kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, a 44.5kW electric motor, and an efficient 1.6-litre ‘Kappa’ four-cylinder GDi (Gasoline Direct injection) engine. The powertrain’s total power and torque output is 139bhp and 265Nm of torque, enabling the XCeed to accelerate from 0-to-60mph in 10.6 seconds.
