Kia all however confirmed to carwow that an SUV based on 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 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 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 handsome thing. Expect 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 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 also received blended reviews. The Ceed SUV might strike a fine balance in between the 2 and provide a more flamboyant design than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with many competent alternatives, the Ceed SUV will have to look good. 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 an entirely upgraded interior. The Ceed SUV will probably have a cabin that is incredibly similar, if not identical, which implies a sleeker centre console with a brand-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 go for if you’re vertically gifted. That said, the 2018 Ceed has significantly more head and legroom than the outbound model, recommending that you will not be left wanting for space in either car.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Practicality
If you ‘d like additional boot area over the Ceed however can’t see yourself in the Ceed SW estate, the SUV will absolutely deserve thinking about. Anticipate around 460 litres of boot area– 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 capability as cars such as the Peugeot 3008 due to the fact that it’s set to be smaller sized– the Sportage is a more direct alternative to cars like that. However, the boot is likely to have great deals of smart, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot flooring that’ll make it easier to pack.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine range includes 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 offered on the SUV, with possibly a larger engine joining the line-up– potentially the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo fuel offered on the Sportage.
Unlike the Stonic, the Ceed SUV is most likely to have a four-wheel-drive choice. It won’t have the ability to match a Land Rover’s off-road capabilities and would just be readily available on the most pricey models, however it’ll provide an additional little bit of security through the worst winter weather condition.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Price and Release Date
Kia has actually merely confirmed that it’ll build a Ceed SUV, so we are at least a year from seeing a car that’s nearly all set to go on sale. It’s expected to go on sale to the end of 2019 or early in 2020, and will begin with someplace near the ₤ 18,000 mark. Top-spec four-wheel-drive models will command nearly ₤ 30,000 before options.
