Kia all however confirmed to carwow that an SUV based on the Ceed will join the line-up, when we talked to 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 rate, and is anticipated to be revealed 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. Expect the Ceed’s Stinger-inspired front end, complete with that pinched ‘tiger-nose’ grille, to be fine-tuned and made larger, and it’s most likely to keep a similar 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 received mixed evaluations. The Ceed SUV could strike a great balance in between the 2 and offer a more flamboyant style than some other mid-size SUVs– in a market as crowded as this, and with so many competent alternatives, 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 brand-new model, with a totally revamped interior. The Ceed SUV will likely have a cabin that is exceptionally comparable, if not similar, which implies a sleeker centre console with a brand-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 might be the one to opt for if you’re vertically talented. That stated, the 2018 Ceed has visibly more head and legroom than the outbound model, recommending that you won’t be left desiring for area 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 definitely be worth considering. Anticipate 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 not likely 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 option to cars like that. Nevertheless, the boot is likely to have great deals of clever, well-thought-out features, such as an adjustable boot floor that’ll make it simpler to fill.
2019 Kia Ceed SUV Engines and Driving
In the Ceed hatchback, the engine range consists of 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 readily available on the SUV, with perhaps a larger engine signing up with the line-up– potentially the 174hp 1.6-litre turbo gas 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 abilities and would just be available on the most expensive models, however it’ll offer an additional 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 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 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 practically ₤ 30,000 prior to options.
