Kia all however verified to carwow that an SUV based on the Ceed will join the line-up, when we spoke with the company at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. There will be an SW-badged estate and stylish 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 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 updated Ceed hatchback– on sale in mid-2018– then it’ll be rather a handsome 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 likely to maintain a similar shape and window line to the standard Ceed.
Some critics have called the styling of the Stonic too plain, and the Sportage has actually likewise received blended evaluations. The Ceed SUV might strike a great balance in between the two and offer a more flamboyant style than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with so many proficient options, the Ceed SUV will need 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 taken the Ceed hatchback upmarket with its new model, with a completely redesigned interior. The Ceed SUV will probably have a cabin that is incredibly comparable, if not identical, 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 bigger body than the car on which it’ll be based, so it might be the one to go for if you’re vertically talented. That stated, the 2018 Ceed has noticeably more head and legroom than the outgoing model, recommending that you will not be left desiring for space in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like extra boot area over the Ceed but can’t see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will certainly deserve thinking about. Expect around 460 litres of boot space– that ‘d be an extra 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 due to the fact that it’s set to be smaller– the Sportage is a more direct option to cars like that. Nevertheless, the boot is likely to have lots of smart, 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 variety includes a 120hp 1.0-litre petrol, a 140hp 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel with power outputs of 115hp and 136hp. All these will be readily available on the SUV, with possibly a bigger engine signing up with the line-up– possibly the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo fuel available on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is likely to have a four-wheel-drive alternative. It won’t have the ability to match a Land Rover’s off-road capabilities and would only be offered on the most costly models, however it’ll offer an additional little bit of security through the worst winter season weather.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has actually merely validated that it’ll develop a Ceed SUV, so we are at least a year from seeing a car that’s nearly prepared to go on sale. It’s anticipated to go on sale to completion of 2019 or early in 2020, and will start from somewhere near the ₤ 18,000 mark. Top-spec four-wheel-drive models will command almost ₤ 30,000 before options.
