There are models that have had to bet on an almost complete renewal of their range after undergoing an exclusive work process in which they have analyzed their peculiarities. This is the case of Kia, who have understood that it is what their customers were looking for in the X-Ceed, which for the 2022 version has a practically perfect redesign of its models, offering an attractive proposal within the C-Crossover.
The new XCeed integrates a number of design changes along with a competitive range of engines in which there are mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid, petrol and diesel versions. For this, both the interior and the exterior, has been adapted to a sporty and urban character. In the case of the GT-line sports version, it is powered by a 204 hp gasoline engine. On the other hand, with a clear purpose of being the reference in sustainable mobility, we find the XCeed Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) offers an electric autonomy of up to 48 km, which reaches up to 60 km of driving in the city.
At Kia they have been aware that they needed to step up in terms of safety and comfort. To do this, they have not hesitated to incorporate the latest technologies in connectivity, infotainment and security. Designed to improve everyday usability, driving pleasure and occupant safety, these updates continue the XCeed’s legacy as a technology leader within the C-Crossover segment.
On the outside, it has new LED headlights, a revised grille, redesigned bumper and new air intakes. The new XCeed is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels specific to the CUV segment. We find a robust line, which has a ground clearance of the XCeed is 172 mm with 16-inch wheels and 184 mm with 18-inch wheels.
Inside we find a screen that has been incorporated into the driver’s position, betting on a sportier driving position. At the bottom is a set of touch-sensitive buttons, dials and switches to control audio volume, heating and ventilation. The interior is finished with sophisticated soft-touch materials throughout the cabin, with a satin chrome trim on the dashboard that brings a refined and high-end touch.
