Kia all however verified to carwow that an SUV based upon the Ceed will sign up with the line-up, when we spoke to the company at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. There will be an SW-badged estate and elegant shooting brake en route too. The as-yet-unnamed SUV will squeeze between the Stonic and Sportage in both size and cost, and is anticipated to be exposed in a year approximately before going on sale in late 2019.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Styling
If the Ceed SUV shares the sharp styling of the updated Ceed hatchback– on sale in mid-2018– then it’ll be rather a handsome thing. Expect the Ceed’s Stinger-inspired front end, complete with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be modified and made bigger, and it’s most likely to keep a similar shape and window line to the basic Ceed.
Some critics have actually called the styling of the Stonic too plain, and the Sportage has actually also gotten blended evaluations. The Ceed SUV could strike a fine balance between the 2 and use a more flamboyant design than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with many skilled options, the Ceed SUV will have to look good. While there will be higher ground clearance and rugged-looking touches such as black plastic wheel arches, it’ll look more restrained than such cars as the Hyundai Kona.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Interior
Kia has taken the Ceed hatchback upmarket with its new model, with a completely upgraded interior. The Ceed SUV will almost certainly have a cabin that is extremely comparable, if not similar, which implies a sleeker centre console with a brand-new touchscreen infotainment system poking up from the dashboard.
The Ceed SUV will have a taller and bigger body than the car on which it’ll be based, so it may be the one to go for if you’re vertically gifted. That stated, the 2018 Ceed has noticeably more head and legroom than the outbound model, recommending that you won’t be left wanting for space in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like extra boot space over the Ceed but cannot see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will certainly be worth considering. Anticipate around 460 litres of boot space– that ‘d be an extra 65 litres over the hatchback, and around ten litres more than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It’s unlikely to have as much boot capacity as cars such as the Peugeot 3008 due to the fact that it’s set to be smaller– the Sportage is a more direct alternative to cars like that. Nevertheless, the boot is likely to have lots of smart, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot flooring that’ll make it much easier to load.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine range includes a 120hp 1.0-litre fuel, a 140hp 1.4-litre fuel and a 1.6-litre diesel with power outputs of 115hp and 136hp. All these will be available on the SUV, with perhaps a bigger engine joining the line-up– potentially the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo petrol available on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is most likely to have a four-wheel-drive option. It will not be able to match a Land Rover’s off-road capabilities and would just be available on the most costly models, but it’ll offer an extra little bit of security through the worst winter weather.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has actually simply validated that it’ll develop a Ceed SUV, so we are at least a year from seeing a car that’s nearly all set to go on sale. It’s expected to go on sale towards completion of 2019 or early in 2020, and will begin with somewhere near the ₤ 18,000 mark. Top-spec four-wheel-drive models will command nearly ₤ 30,000 before alternatives.
