This Kia XCeed has the shape combined from SUV and coupe which is set to debut to the public on Jun 26. Users will find it has sportier look because of the fact that the Kia automaker is planning to approach the crossover market.

On the one hand, as the manufacturer announced to the public, this new product will be the all-new crossover which you can find the images of both SUV and Coupe. The clearest difference of this car, the new sloping roof design brings about a hatchback which makes the car look like an efficient wagon.

Meanwhile, as the result of a new arrangement for the sleek headlights and taillights, this crossover is totally distinct when you drive it down the town.

According to the latest car news, the Kia XCeed expresses a sporty demeanor with the re-design occurred in the twin five-spoke alloy wheels. Unfortunately, we cannot foresee the car’s interior because there has not been picture published, yet.

But we can hope that this car is worthy to wait for because Kia stressed that this edition will be a serious competitor to other best-selling SUVs in terms of the outstanding luggage space and interior.

The Chief Operating Officer at Kia Motors Europe - Emilio Herrera, expressed that as it has more impressive height and more energetic-looking than the traditional SUVs, the Kia XCeed will convey a sportier drive “without compromising on versatility”, to use her words.

2. Kia XCeed 2019: The more dynamic engines?

Although the exact powertrain options have not been announced to the public, it is expected to have the same engine lineup as the Kia ProCeed for sale which was divulged the year before. Having this engine means a 1.0-liter turbo produces 120PS and 172 Nm of torque will be featured with the XCeed.
