Kia XCeed (2019) At A Glance

4/5

+Very good looking 'crossover' based on the KIA Ceed. Nicely furnished inside. Well equipped. Sensible value for money.

-Much better on 16-inch wheels with 205/60 R16 tyres than on 18-inch wheels with 234/45 R18s.

Kia's new crossover priced from £20,795 rivals the Volkswagen T-Roc and Ford Focus Active. It arrived in showrooms at the end of September 2019.

Based on the Ceed hatchback, the XCeed is positioned between the Stonic and Sportage in size. It's a more premium offering, however, which explains why it's £2,000 more than the equivalent hatch.

The engine line-up mirrors that of the Ceed, meaning buyers get a choice of 1.0- and 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engines, as well as a 1.6-litre diesel. A plug-in hybrid is also on its way, combining a 1.6-litre petrol with an electric motor to produce 141PS, as per the Kia Niro PHEV.

High spec versions are the first KIA models to feature a new 12.3-inch driver's digital instrument cluster in place of conventional dials.
