Following in the steps of the Kia Ceed hatchback, Sportswagon, and the beautiful ProCeed shooting brake, the XCeed is the new crossover member of the compact car household. Developed specifically for Europe, the CUV is placed above the Stonic however listed below the Sportage in the company’s continually growing lineup. Similar to Kia’s child crossover, the XCeed will not be offered with all-wheel drive as all setups will have a FWD design. That should not be much of a problem because AWD is more searched for on larger crossovers and SUVs.
2020 Kia XCeed Design
Trendy, meaningful and modern-day in style, the new Kia XCeed represents a stylish option to conventional SUVs. An item of the brand name’s European style centre in Frankfurt, Germany, the development of the Kia XCeed has actually occurred under the instructions of Gregory Guillaume, Vice President of Design for Kia Motors Europe.
In profile, the car’s reasonably long bonnet streams into the A-pillars anchored aft of the front wheels, providing the car a stylish, swept-back shape. While the wheelbase stays the like other models in the Ceed line-up (2,650 mm), the Kia XCeed’s front and rear overhangs are crossed the five-door hatchback model by 25 mm at the front (to 905 mm) and 60 mm at the back (to 840 mm).
The front and back of the car likewise represent a departure from the ‘face’ of the traditional Ceed model household, separating the Kia XCeed from its stablemates. With an 1,826 mm body (26 mm broader than the Ceed five-door), the CUV provides a more assertive face, with a more popular grille and bigger lower air consumption. The headlamps are newly-designed, with the Ceed’s ‘ice’ LED light signature sitting within a more angular shape, topped by a slim turn signal that recedes over the wheel arches.
At the back, new tail-lights discharge a slim, highly-technical LED light signature which, when seen from specific angles, appears to spear forward into the shoulders of the car. The heavily-creased lines running horizontally throughout the tailgate and rear bumper provide the car a larger, more steady posture.
The new model will be provided in an option of approximately 12 paint surfaces, with a lively new Quantum Yellow shade that is distinct to the CUV within the Ceed range.
2020 Kia XCeed Interior
Inside, the Kia XCeed rollovers the modern cabin architecture of its Ceed stablemates, with a sculptured centre console oriented somewhat towards the motorist. With a lower hip point than a taller SUV, and raised ground clearance over a traditional hatchback, the Kia XCeed offers chauffeurs with a sportier driving position enabling a much better view of the roadway ahead (see ‘Packaging’ for more information).
A ‘drifting’ touchscreen infotainment system stands happy with the control panel, while the lower part of the cockpit console supplies a set of touch-sensitive buttons, dials and changes to manage audio volume, heating and ventilation. Extremely ergonomic in its design and performance, these controls have actually been developed to allow motorists to make fast changes to the cabin environment without taking their eyes off the roadway for any longer than essential.
The interior is ended up in advanced soft-touch products throughout, with a satin chrome control panel trim, providing an improved, high end environment. Purchasers can select from a variety of fabric, artificial leather or real leather upholstery.
2020 Kia XCeed Engine
Not a surprises in concerns to the oily bits as the 2020 Kia XCeed will be provided with the exact same 1.0- and 1.4-liter turbocharged fuel engines as the other Ceeds, plus a punchy 1.6-liter as seen in the hot Ceed GT and Proceed GT. The three-cylinder engine pumps out 120 hp and 172 Newton-meters (127 pound-feet), followed by the smaller sized of the 2 four-bangers with 140 hp and 242 Nm (178 lb-ft) and after that the flagship GT-sourced mill with 204 hp and 265 Nm (195 lb-ft) on tap.
A diesel motor– called “Smartstream”– has a 1.6-liter displacement and is provided with 115 hp and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) for the manual transmission variation and with the exact same 115 hp however an increased 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) if you opt for the DCT. There’s a beefier variation of the diesel, ranked at 136 hp and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) or 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) depending upon transmission.
All engines are readily available with a six-speed handbook or a dual-clutch, seven-speed automated transmission, with the exception of the entry-level system stuck to the three-pedal setup. At the start of next year, Kia will include moderate hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains for those focusing on performance without needing to go down the diesel path.
