Kia has confirmed that its updated XCeed plug-in hybrid will be priced from £32,595 when deliveries start later this year. The model gas been given a boost with the addition of new high-tech features and some snazzy new styling, although the plug-in hybrid system remains the same.
The looks have been sharpened with some sportier lines. At the front, the grille, bumper and air intake have been revised while the fog lamps have been integrated into the headlights, which now feature LEDs. Kia then created what it calls ‘air curtains’ on either side. These contribute to fuel efficiency by guiding the air around the wheels, reducing drag.
At the back the changes are subtle rather than bold and include a new diffuser featuring gloss black skid plate, among a few other tweaks. Inside a new thin bezel-edged rear-view mirror adds to the sporty feel from the driver’s seat, which can now be finished in a choice of cloth, suede, synthetic leather or genuine leather.
