The new Kia XCeed has arrived in Ireland

The Kia XCeed is has just arrived in Ireland priced from €26,245. The new XCeed will join the Ceed family as a new urban crossover utility vehicle (CUV) combining compact SUV practicality with the sporty packaging and engaging handling of a hatchback.

At the launch of the new car Aidan Doyle, Head of Marketing at Kia Motors Ireland said: “The Kia XCeed addresses the growing desire for cars which offer more emotion and dynamism than an SUV, both in terms of the way a car looks and drives. Yet these customers don’t want to lose the practicality that a larger car offers them. Our new CUV meets these needs, with a distinctive and modern design wrapped around a spacious, versatile body. Merging the strengths of both hatchback and SUV, the Kia XCeed offers a refreshing and different alternative for Irish motorists.”

Kia Motors Ireland will initially offer xCeed in three trim levels (K2,K3 and K4). At launch the XCeed will be available with a 1.0-litre petrol engine and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Other power units may follow based on customer demand. A plug -in hybrid (PHEV) is expected to arrive in Ireland in late January 2020.

The entry level 1.0-litre T-GDi K2 model is priced from €26,245. Standard equipment includes 16“ alloys, LED lights front and rear, rear privacy glass, 8 inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, and a host of safety features including Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance, High Beam Assist and Speed Limit Assist.

The K3 (1.0-litre available from €28,145 ) adds 18” alloys,10.25 inch touchscreen with Sat Nav /Tom Tom and rear view camera, half leather upholstery, electronic parking brake and a wireless phone charger. The K3 will also be available with a diesel engine and is expected to cost in the region of €31,000 (TBC).
