Kia all however confirmed to carwow that an SUV based upon 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 trendy shooting brake en route too. The as-yet-unnamed SUV will squeeze between the Stonic and Sportage in both size and price, and is anticipated to be exposed in a year or two 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 quite a good-looking thing. Expect the Ceed’s Stinger-inspired front end, total with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be modified and made larger, and it’s likely to maintain a similar shape and window line to the basic Ceed.
Some critics have actually called the styling of the Stonic too plain, and the Sportage has likewise gotten blended evaluations. The Ceed SUV could 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 many qualified alternatives, the Ceed SUV will need 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 actually taken the Ceed hatchback upmarket with its new model, with a totally upgraded interior. The Ceed SUV will likely have a cabin that is exceptionally comparable, if not identical, which means a sleeker centre console with a brand-new touchscreen infotainment system poking up from the dashboard. 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 stated, the 2018 Ceed has noticeably more head and legroom than the outgoing model, recommending that you will not be left wanting for area in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like additional boot space over the Ceed but cannot see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will absolutely deserve considering. Anticipate around 460 litres of boot area– that ‘d be an extra 65 litres over the hatchback, and around ten litres more than the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It’s not likely to have as much boot capability as cars such as the Peugeot 3008 because it’s set to be smaller– the Sportage is a more direct alternative to cars like that. However, the boot is likely to have lots of creative, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot flooring that’ll make it simpler to pack.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine range includes a 120hp 1.0-litre fuel, a 140hp 1.4-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel with power outputs of 115hp and 136hp. All of these will be readily available on the SUV, with maybe a larger engine signing up with the line-up– potentially the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo fuel readily available on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is most likely to have a four-wheel-drive choice. It will not have the ability to match a Land Rover’s off-road capabilities and would only be readily available on the most expensive models, but it’ll use an additional bit of security through the worst winter weather.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has merely verified that it’ll construct a Ceed SUV, so we are at least a year from seeing a car that’s almost ready to go on sale. It’s anticipated to go on sale towards the end 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 alternatives.
