NEW KIA XCEED - Inspiring independence

Made to match your lifestyle, the new Kia XCeed redefines the crossover driving experience. With bold, sportier-than-ever aesthetics, a cutting-edge Plug-In Hybrid engine, the latest connectivity features and so much more.


Eye-catching exterior

A bolder than ever presence. With playful enhancements on the GT-line including new LED tail lights, a dedicated grille and a sporty lower air-intake.

Strikingly sporty

Enhanced, sculpted and ready to thrill, the new Kia XCeed excites the eye from all angles. New dark-satin chrome inserts and the GT-line’s new dedicated 18” alloy wheel design complete its standout athletic appeal.

Dramatic rear styling

The new Kia XCeed’s eye-catching rear design with its low angle, sporty dimensions and distinctive rear bumper has been refined with a new diffuser featuring a glossy black skid plate, along with a new more subtle exhaust that rounds off the car’s sporty aesthetic.

Advanced easy loading

Smart Power Tailgate technology makes it easy to load your bags and belongings even when you have your hands full. The boot lid opens automatically when you approach the rear of the car with the key in your pocket or bag. Plus, the back seats split and fold in a 40:20:40 configuration to boost the boot’s capacity to up to 1,378 litres. Available on the GT-Line S only.

Head-turning style

Strikingly bold with updated dark-satin chrome air curtains, a revamped bumper and the GT-line’s new larger 18” alloy wheel design elevate the sporty aesthetic even further.


Style, comfort & connectivity

Take a seat and feel the thrill. The new Kia XCeed’s high-tech cabin pushes design, roominess and versatility to the next level. The new glossy-black PRND panel and new rear-view mirror add a touch more boldness, while the newly designed control labels keep the latest tech at your fingertips.

12.3" full digital cluster

Stay informed, in real-time. This single, seamless display incorporates pin-sharp digital dials for vehicle and engine speeds. Plus, turn-by-turn navigation instructions, audio information, phone calls and contacts, in-depth trip details, and more. Choose from new stand-out design themes and link them to drive modes. Available on the GT-Line S only.

Superior comfort

Inside the new Kia XCeed you not only have a sporty high driving position with a great view of the road ahead but there's also plenty of space for passengers. You will be surprised by the generous headroom and legroom.


Highway Driving Assist with Navigation assisted Smart Cruise Control

Reduces risk and danger. Highway Driving Assist (HDA) helps your XCeed maintain a safe distance to the vehicle ahead and keeps it centred in your lane. At the same time, it controls steering, acceleration and deceleration, while the Curve function (NSCC-C) uses navigation data to recognise an upcoming curve on the road. When approaching the curve, the system automatically reduces the cruising speed, then resumes your pre-set speed. Available only the GT-Line S DCT model.

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go

Cruise effortlessly – maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front at all times. SCC maintains the speed specified by you, the driver, and computes the relative position and speed of the vehicle ahead using its front-view camera and radar. The system controls acceleration and deceleration to make sure your Kia XCeed stops when the other vehicle ahead halts. And when it starts moving again, you will be able to too, by pressing the accelerator pedal or the cruise control button on the steering wheel. Available on DCT models only.

Lane Following Assist (LFA)

Keep in your lane. The Lane Following Assist (LFA) 11 system uses the windshield camera to monitor lane markings or the leading vehicle to make sure your XCeed stays centred in your lane. Available in all models with an MT and DCT gearbox.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)

Warns you about vehicles in blind spots and intervenes if necessary. The Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) system uses its windshield camera and rear corner radars to monitor the relative position and speed of other vehicles to the side or in your blind-spot zone. If it identifies a potential collision, the system will activate visual and audible alarms, and may even automatically intervene to keep you in your current lane and avoid danger. Available in the GT-Line S only.

Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)

Warns you of obstacles while reversing, and intervenes if needed. When reversing out of a parking space or driveway, the radar-based Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) system warns you with visual and audible alarms about any approaching traffic potentially crossing your path – and engages to avoid a potential collision when necessary. Available on the GT-Line S only.

Driver Attention Warning (DAW+)

Stay alert and on course. This system notices if you’re losing concentration by monitoring the pattern of the steering wheel, acceleration and overall length of your journey. If your attention level seems low, it alerts you both visually and audibly. DAW+ also features a leading vehicle departure warning system that will alert you too if, for example, in traffic, the car in front of you drives away and you don’t move. Very smart.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Avoid potential hazards for you and pedestrians. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian warning 7 uses radar and camera inputs to warn of pedestrians, cyclists and cars in your path. It gives you warning signals and automatically brakes if you don't react, helping to prevent or mitigate an accident.

High Beam Assist

Better visibility, safer drives. The Intelligent front lighting system senses the vehicles around your car and automatically controls the high beam function to provide the best possible visibility – crucially, without blinding other road users.

HIGHLIGHTS - The spirit of sportiness

Drive Mode Select

Tailor your driving experience by adjusting steering weight, throttle pedal responses, and – for models equipped with dual-clutch transmissions – gear shift responses. Choose Normal mode for relaxed efficiency and fuel efficiency, or Sport mode for enhanced response and excitement. Available on DCT models only.

Paddle shift levers

Make driving more dynamic and intuitive while keeping you in complete control. In models with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the paddle shift levers let you change gears swiftly without taking your hands off the steering wheel. Available on DCT models only.

Advanced acoustics and suspension

Experience a new level of smoothness, peace and quiet. By reducing road noise absorption in the body, adding extra insulation to the floor, and having quiet wheels, the new Kia XCeed tunes noise out for you. We have also tuned the exhaust for smoothness and optimised the suspension with new hydraulic rebound stoppers.

PHEV - Get going, charge almost anywhere

Public Charging

Exclusively available to Kia drivers, Kia Charge gives you access to the IONITY Power subscription, which unlocks the best value when charging within IONITY’s UK and European network of high-power EV charging stations. The solution also provides access to no less than 23 UK networks, including bp pulse, Pod Point and many more across 28 other European countries. Use Kia Charge to plan journeys with charging stops, consult station information and view pricing. All your expenses are consolidated in one monthly invoice so public charging has never been easier!

Home Charging

Being able to charge at home helps reap the benefits of owning an XCeed Plug-In Hybrid. That is why Kia have partnered with Pod Point and bp pulse – two of Britain’s largest and most experienced manufacturers and installers - to help you install your dedicated home car charger. What’s more, you can stop, start and schedule charging sessions using our Kia Connect app so your XCeed is always ready when you need it.
