Kaliningrad Avtotor plant began the production of a new KIA XCeed coupe-crossover for the Russian market. Information about the Russian trim levels and prices of the new model will be presented closer to the start date of sales, which is scheduled for June 1st, 2020, KIA press service reported.

In the Russian market, KIA XCeed will be offered with two versions of turbocharged petrol engines: 1.4 T-GDI with a capacity of 140 hp and a torque of 242 Nm, and 1.6 T-GDI with a capacity of 200 hp and a torque of 265 Nm. Together with any of these engines, a robotic preselective 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT) will be installed. All KIA XCeed cars have front axle drive.

The novelty will expand Ceed family of the third generation and it is designed to become an alternative to traditional and larger SUVs. The new crossover coupe has an overall length of 4395 mm (Ceed - 4310 mm, Ceed SW - 4600 mm) with the same wheelbase, while it is 26 mm wider than the related models (1826 versus 1800 mm). The overall height of the new crossover is 1483-1495 mm, which is higher by 20-60 mm than it is at related models.

The design of KIA XCeed is made in the style of European coupes with a characteristic falling roof line. The combination of increased ground clearance and a lower seat cushion for the driver creates a sportier fit behind the wheel in compare with a typical crossover. Amid the hatchback, the XCeed driver wins due to better visibility. At the same time, the capacity of the KIA XCeed is at the level of the most popular crossovers in Europe.
