Kia all however confirmed to carwow that an SUV based upon the Ceed will join 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 in between the Stonic and Sportage in both size and price, 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 upgraded Ceed hatchback– on sale in mid-2018– then it’ll be rather a good-looking thing. Anticipate the Ceed’s Stinger-inspired front end, total with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be fine-tuned and made larger, and it’s most likely to maintain a comparable shape and window line to the basic Ceed.
Some critics have actually called the styling of the Stonic too plain, and the Sportage has also received combined evaluations. The Ceed SUV could strike a great balance in 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 proficient options, the Ceed SUV will have to look great. While there will be greater 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 actually taken the Ceed hatchback upmarket with its new model, with a completely revamped interior. The Ceed SUV will almost certainly have a cabin that is exceptionally similar, if not similar, which means a sleeker centre console with a new touchscreen infotainment system poking up from the control panel. The Ceed SUV will have a taller and larger body than the car on which it’ll be based, so it might be the one to opt for if you’re vertically gifted. That stated, the 2018 Ceed has significantly more head and legroom than the outgoing model, suggesting that you won’t be left wanting for space in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like extra boot area over the Ceed however can’t see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will certainly deserve considering. Expect around 460 litres of boot space– that ‘d be an additional 65 litres over the hatchback, and approximately 10 litres more than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It’s unlikely to have as much boot capacity as cars such as the Peugeot 3008 since it’s set to be smaller sized– the Sportage is a more direct alternative to cars like that. Nevertheless, the boot is likely to have great deals of creative, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot floor that’ll make it easier to load.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine variety consists of a 120hp 1.0-litre gas, a 140hp 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel with power outputs of 115hp and 136hp. All these will be offered on the SUV, with maybe a larger engine signing up with 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 won’t be able to match a Land Rover’s off-road capabilities and would only be offered on the most expensive models, however it’ll offer an extra little security through the worst winter season weather.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has merely verified that it’ll develop a Ceed SUV, so we are at least a year from seeing a car that’s nearly ready to go on sale. It’s expected to go on sale towards completion of 2019 or early in 2020, and will begin with someplace near the ₤ 18,000 mark. Top-spec four-wheel-drive models will command almost ₤ 30,000 before options.
