2019 Kia Ceed Sportswagon To Be Practical And Stylish

Those who like the design of the new Kia Ceed hatch but want more space will be pleased to know that a Sportswagon variant is just around the corner. Snapped during winter testing in Sweden, the car promises to provide Kia customers with even more choice.

While Kia has gone to the trouble of bathing this prototype in camouflage, there shouldn’t be any styling surprises when the covers are lifted. In fact, the front fascia of the sportswagon should be identical to the hatchback and for the most part, the rear should follow suit.

Like its hatchback sibling, the elongated sportswagon will come laden with active safety technologies, including High Beam Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Forward Collision Warning with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Other available features will include Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, and Smart Parking Assist.

The exact same powertrains of the hatchback are expected to be available. Consequently, a 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine delivering 120 PS is on the cards, as is a 140 PS 1.4-liter mill. Those that favor diesel will have a 1.6-liter CRDi delivering either 115 PS or 136 PS at their disposal.

The new Kia Ceed hatchback will launch at next month’s Geneva Motor Show. The sportswagon will most likely premiere a few months later.
