2020 Kia XCeed Debuts as a Classy Compact Crossover
2020 Kia Xceed will debut with a classy look as a sub-Sportage compact crossover. Kia has finally provided the first look of this new crossover. Coming with vibrant color, the brand new Kia Xceed is going to be the latest member of the Ceed family.
This new Kia Xceed is wider, taller, and longer than the Ceed hatchback. Even though it’s said to be exclusively created for Europe market, there can be a chance for the crossover to hit the American market anytime soon. Some enthusiasts call it as Kia’s baby crossover.
The 2020 Xceed won’t be available with AWD since all configurations will come with an FWD layout. That shouldn’t be a problem since the all-wheel drive is more demanded on larger crossovers and SUVs. Then, what does the Kia Xceed offer for its prospective buyers? Read on to learn more!
What to Expect from the New Kia Xceed Debut
Kia probably defines Xceed as an urban crossover. But, there are many speculations that most people will see this car as a jacked-up version of the current Ceed hatchback with a little more rugged body. Aside from the design, there are some significant differences between these two vehicles.
Different from the five-door hatch, the Xceed has longer, taller, and wider body. Then, it may come with either 16 or 18 wheel sizes. More importantly, there’s that bold color known as “Quantum Yellow” which can only be found from the Xceed. How about the things under the hood?
At launch, the 2020 Kia Xceed is going to offer three turbocharged petrol engines including a 1.0L 3-cyl, 1.4L 4-cyl, and 1.5L engine. The 1.5L engine is the one which is also used by Ceed GT and Proceed GT. If you’re interested in the diesel version, there is a 1.6L turbocharged engine available.
This engine is going to be paired with an automatic engine stop/start as well as a six-speed manual gearbox. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is optional for every model except for the base version which comes with three-cylinder petrol. For the features, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard.
2020 Kia Xceed Prices and Lease Deals
Then, how much is the 2020 XCeed? There’s no official price yet. But, some sources expect the price to start at around $26,345 in USD. If it’s official, it means that the price is going to be less expensive than its potential competitors like the new Ford Focus Active.
is the KIA Xceed coming to the USA? unfortunately, we haven’t got any report yet related to the release of this new Xceed in the U.S. market. This car is supposed to be launched in the Europe market in late 2019. So, if you’re interested in a crossover, you may need to change your target first.
In conclusion, the debut of Kia Xceed is worth waiting for. But, the USA market may need to wait for a little longer since the newest crossover is going to be launched in Europe market only. That’s all that you need to know about the 2020 Kia Xceed.
Low-emissions electrified Engine, including 48V mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid Variant, will be launched later in early 2020.
