KIA XCeed got a hybrid engine

June 2, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

From the very beginning, it was clear that KIA would eventually expand the XCeed range with a soft hybrid technology diesel engine.

Already with the introduction of XCeed in June last year, KIA announced that the engine line, which at that time consisted only of T-GDI gasoline engines, would eventually be electrified. The gasoline version of the crossover relied on a replaceable hybrid, and the diesel version was moderate.

As planned, the Mild-hybride is offered for a 1.6-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, which currently uses exclusively a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A soft 48-volt hybrid system can reduce the load on the engine. XCeed 1.6 CRDi MHEV accelerates to 100 km / h in 10.1 seconds. The maximum speed is limited to 198 km / h.

According to autoweek.nl, in Europe, the starting price for the DynamicLine version is 36,138 euros. DynamicPlusLine and ExecutiveLine are priced at 37,638 euros and 41,638 euros respectively.
