Kia all however validated 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 cost, and is anticipated to be exposed in a year or two prior to 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 handsome thing. Anticipate the Ceed’s Stinger-inspired front end, complete with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be modified and made bigger, and it’s most likely to retain a comparable shape and window line to the standard Ceed.
Some critics have actually called the styling of the Stonic too plain, and the Sportage has likewise gotten combined evaluations. The Ceed SUV could strike a great balance in between the two and use a more flamboyant style than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with so many qualified options, the Ceed SUV will need to look great. 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 new model, with an entirely redesigned interior. The Ceed SUV will probably have a cabin that is extremely similar, if not identical, which indicates a sleeker centre console with a new touchscreen infotainment system poking up from the dashboard. The Ceed SUV will have a taller and larger body than the car on which it’ll be based, so it may be the one to choose if you’re vertically gifted. That said, the 2018 Ceed has visibly more head and legroom than the outgoing model, suggesting that you won’t be left desiring 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 be worth thinking about. Expect around 460 litres of boot area– that ‘d be an extra 65 litres over the hatchback, and roughly 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. However, the boot is most likely to have lots of clever, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot floor that’ll make it simpler to pack.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine variety consists of 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 offered on the SUV, with perhaps a larger engine joining the line-up– potentially the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo fuel readily available on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is likely to have a four-wheel-drive choice. It will not be able to match a Land Rover’s off-road abilities and would only be available on the most pricey models, but it’ll use an additional little bit of security through the worst winter season weather condition.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has actually simply validated 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 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.
