Last month, the first official image of the new Kia XCeed was released to the public. It’s stylish, expressive and entirely contemporary in design, paving a new way for the new CUV (Crossover utility Vehicle) segment. A segment that offers a new, sporty alternative to the traditional larger SUV’s.
The new swept back, coupe like appearance of the XCeed follows suit with the newly released and utterly stunning ProCeed. The new design direction is all thanks to Kia’s European design centre in Frankfurt, Germany.
While its raised driving position offers a higher, clearer view of the road ahead, it’s elevated ride height with lower hip point give the car a sportier driving position than your traditional SUV. This allows the car to retain the sporty sleek form of a coupe, while offering all of the perks of a large SUV.
While the XCeed is a CUV, with compact styling, you can expect the interior space and luggage capacity to be comparable to Europe’s best-selling SUVs.
Emilio Herrera, Chief Operating Officer at Kia Motors Europe, comments: “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 shortly. UK on-sale date, specification and pricing will be confirmed in due course.
