2020 Kia Xceed PHEV: Crossover hatch gains plug-in hybrid option

The 2020 Kia Xceed PHEV goes on sale across Europe from early 2020, and shares its plug-in hybrid powertrain with Ceed Sportswagon PHEV.

Both cars have a total of 104kW (139hp) and 265Nm (195 lb-ft) from its 1.6L direct injection I4 engine, and 44.5kW (60hp) electric motor.

A 6-speed DCT is standard, and has a 0-100km/h time of 11s. Other standard features include 16″ wheels (18″ optional), and an 8″ touchscreen (10.25″ optional).

With a 8.9kWh lithium polymer battery, the Xceed PHEV has an electric driving range of 60km (37mi). The battery and gas tank are under the trunk floor, and reduce luggage capacity slightly.
