Kia launched to test the popular Led a new generation [At this time, the crossover]
The first pictures of the latest secret crossover Kia (while spy photo)
Kia Led (name Ceed is now spelled without an apostrophe) – the family of a popular small hatchback and estate car C-segment from Korea. So it will be up to 2019-2020, when the plans of the South Koreans on the market will not be a new model, this time a crossover variant in the corresponding body. So there were stars that the selection of quality spy photos appeared in our disposal, so hurry to share it with our readers.
Yes, it’s a new crossover (like most debuts of new cars these days), and it will be built based on the Korean compact-class Kia Ceed. Can it be called “Ceed” in the body of a city SUV? Well, why not?! But the official name of the newest secret models yet, so there’s a chance that after the debut of the novelty will receive some other name. But what we can say for sure is the fact that the new version of the crossover will have to worm his way into the lineup somewhere between the Sportage crossover and Stonic.
Testing has just begun and the first spy images do not allow us to see the real design of conditional SUV “Ceed”, but we can notice his familiar headlights and taillights, as well as the contours of the body “has Led”. Well, multi-platform cross-models are becoming more popular in our days and no one should be surprised by the Association of bodywork hatchback with a station wagon and SUV in one package, such a combination should only improve urban indicators in a dynamics and efficiency on paved road.
Answer by Kia for Ford Focus Active, Subaru Crosstrek and the VW Golf Alltrack
At the same time, this kind of mix also means that the model will be available against such models as the Ford Focus Active, the Subaru XV and VW Golf Alltrack when it goes on sale in Europe in late 2019, early 2020. As the mentioned models, the crossover “Kia Ceed” will try to attract buyers, having donned an “all-in-one”. The model will combine the flexible chassis of a compact car with a fairly spacious interior, and increased opportunities in the wilderness for the moderate off-road, thanks to higher ground clearance.
The design will fully reflect the newfound versatility of an SUV Ceed, having donned items such as standard roof rails, the plastic protection of the body around the wheel arches and side sills, front and rear skid plates under the bumpers, as well as more durable bumpers. The package will finish alloy wheels with the original pattern.
As for the other elements of the body, expected similar to the style of “Led,” the front grille “Tiger Nose” and similar, but not identical to the style of the rear part compared to the versions of hatchback and wagon.
As you can see, the window line will also look very different than on the hatchback Kia Ceed. The lower part of the rear window begins to rise toward the back.
Remains unresolved the big question: do Kia your new SUV with all-wheel drive system? Answer is no.
While photospin did not make any pictures of the interior, but we are almost 100% sure that he will fully switch from the platform Ceed. Yes, the secret inside the new crossover will differ higher usability and scope. But stylistically, all remain in their places, including new, driver-oriented centre console with a “floating” touchscreen.
When it comes to the range of engines, the upcoming crossover should get the same turbocharged petrol and diesel powertrains, and Ceed. In contrast, less Stonic, he also can get additional all-wheel drive system, although, as we said above, no official data so Kia has not been received.
