Kia XCeed Crossover Shows Us Its New Digital Instrument Cluster

Kia released another teaser image of the upcoming XCeed crossover hatchback, this time revealing its new digital instrument cluster.

The new XCeed will be the company’s first model to feature a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster when it’s launched in Europe later this year.

Featuring a high-resolution 1920×720-pixel display, the new Supervision digital cluster offers more information, including turn-by-turn navigation instructions, audio and phone information, as well as all the usual trip computer data and pop-up notifications from the vehicle’s active safety systems.

Kia will offer the newfeature as an option in the new XCeed, and in other models in the near future.

“Our new Supervision digital instrument cluster is one of a number of optional new technologies that will be available with the Kia XCeed,” said Emilio Herrera, Chief Operating Officer at Kia Motors Europe. “Boasting a wide range of features, particularly on higher-specification models, this cluster will play an important role in displaying critical information to the driver in a clear, unobtrusive way.”

The XCeed will be positioned alongside the regular Ceed, Ceed Sportswagon and Proceed, filling the gap between the small Stonic and the compact Sportage in Kia’s SUV range.

The Korean car maker has already released one image showing the profile of the new XCeed but more images of the exterior have surfaced online recently, revealing the sporty shape of the new crossover hatchback.

Chances are that the crossover looks will not come with all-wheel drive; instead, expect to see new driving modes added to the existing Normal, Eco and Sport ones that will tune the suspension and electronics for some mild off-road use.

A new plug-in hybrid powertrain is expected to make its debut with the compact Kia alongside the existing engine lineup. The new Kia XCeed is set to be revealed in full on June 26.

    Very nice! But I prefer the speedometer on the RIGHT and the tachometer on the LEFT.

      Unlike the traditional gauges, I am sure the digital version can accommodate your needs with just a few changes in the code.

      • Bash

        True, plus I wonder at what point we will be able to change the themes or personalize how the digital cluster looks and feel. That will be interesting.

      • Craig

        That would be good. But I’d be surprised if it did.

  • Dark Rebel

    I thought they were using an image from a BMW vehicle as this looks just like the current BMW digital cluster at a quick glance.

    • KidRed

      By it looks like a BMW do you mean because it has two large circular gauges with a smaller space inbetween them?

  • PK

    I hope Kia has a navigation map in their new digital instrumental cluster! i mean it’s pointless if they don’t!

  • Enter Ranting

    And now it’s happened – are the digital displays in a Mercedes or BMW so high-tech and luxurious now that an entry-level KIA has them? Is the bloom off the rose? Screens are cheap and easy for manufacturers to install.
