Kia Motors has released the first image of their all-new XCeed crossover, due to be revealed later in June 2019. The brand says this new model is a sporty alternative to traditional larger SUVs.
The swept-back, coupe-like appearance of the XCeed is a product of the brand’s European design centre in Frankfurt, Germany. The combination of its elevated ride height and lower hip point give the car a sportier driving position than a traditional SUV. Furthermore, Kia claims that its raised driving position offers a clearer view of the road ahead than a conventional family hatchback.
Emilio Herrera, Chief Operating Officer at Kia Motors Europe, comments: “The sporty design and demeanour of the new Kia XCeed CUV makes it more innately desirable than many taller, larger SUVs. Yet it offers this without compromising on versatility, with its intelligent packaging achieving the cabin and storage space of an SUV in a sportier body and more compact footprint.”
The new XCeed will be revealed on June 26. UK on-sale date, specification and pricing will be confirmed in due course.
