Kia all but validated to carwow that an SUV based upon the Ceed will sign up with the line-up, when we spoke with the company at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. There will be an SW-badged estate and trendy shooting brake on the way too. The as-yet-unnamed SUV will squeeze in between the Stonic and Sportage in both size and price, and is anticipated to be revealed 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, complete with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be tweaked 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 might strike a fine balance between the 2 and use a more flamboyant design than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with so many competent alternatives, the Ceed SUV will have to look excellent. While there will be higher 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 taken the Ceed hatchback upmarket with its brand-new model, with an entirely redesigned interior. The Ceed SUV will probably have a cabin that is extremely similar, if not similar, which indicates a sleeker centre console with a new touchscreen infotainment system poking up from the control panel. The Ceed SUV will have a taller and bigger body than the car on which it’ll be based, so it might be the one to opt for if you’re vertically talented. That said, the 2018 Ceed has significantly more head and legroom than the outbound model, suggesting that you will not be left desiring for area in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like extra boot space over the Ceed however can’t see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will certainly deserve thinking about. Anticipate around 460 litres of boot space– that ‘d be an additional 65 litres over the hatchback, and roughly ten litres more than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It’s not likely to have as much boot capacity as cars such as the Peugeot 3008 due to the fact that it’s set to be smaller– the Sportage is a more direct option to cars like that. However, the boot is most likely to have lots of creative, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot flooring that’ll make it simpler to fill.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine range consists of a 120hp 1.0-litre gas, a 140hp 1.4-litre gas and a 1.6-litre diesel with power outputs of 115hp and 136hp. All these will be available on the SUV, with maybe a larger engine signing up with the line-up– possibly the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo gas available on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is likely to have a four-wheel-drive option. It will not have the ability to match a Land Rover’s off-road abilities and would only be readily available on the most pricey models, but it’ll provide an extra little security through the worst winter weather condition.
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 almost all set to go on sale. It’s anticipated to go on sale towards the end of 2019 or early in 2020, and will begin with somewhere near the ₤ 18,000 mark. Top-spec four-wheel-drive models will command almost ₤ 30,000 prior to alternatives.
