New high-spec Kia XCeed Edition trim launched
The Kia XCeed Edition is a highly specced model for the lower end of the crossover’s line-up, priced at £20,995
Available to order now, the XCeed Edition is priced at £20,995 – which is just £200 more than the base model XCeed “2” on which it’s based.
Standard equipment for the Kia XCeed Edition includes 18-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, LED headlamps and silver roof rails. Buyers also have a choice of three metallic paint finishes as standard: ‘Blue Flame,’ ‘Quantum Yellow’ and ‘Lunar Silver’.
Inside, the Edition gets faux leather upholstery, air conditioning and an eight-inch infotainment screen with voice recognition support, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s a decent amount of driver assistance tech, too: buyers get cruise control, lane-keeping assist, high-beam assist and a forward collision avoidance system.
It’s only available with Kia’s entry-level, turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox. The powertrain develops 118bhp and 172Nm of torque – enough for a 0–62mph time of 10.9 seconds and a top speed of 115mph. Fuel economy and CO2 emissions stand at 44.1mpg and 145g/km respectively.
