New Kia Xceed failed moose testDecember 23, 2019
The elk moose test is a great example of how small changes in the suspension or wheel size can affect the behavior of the car, as Kia XCeed shows.
XCeed is a cross-variation of the hatchback with some changes. When carrying out this test, an overcharged suspension may play a negative role, but it’s clear from the video that the XCeed does it fine, passing the segment at a speed of 76 km / h, only 1 km / h slower than the Ceed hatchback. But still, it’s worth clarifying how vehicles behave.
The electronic stability control in the higher model has different settings, since by the end of the tests the brakes had interfered so much with stabilization that the car got up almost completely, revealing in some cases a sharply rising rear window.
The Proceed station wagon also passed the test at a speed of 76 km / h, but its controllability looked more clearly and sharply, although at the same time the feed was swinging all the time. Despite the fact that it was a sportier version, equipped with a unit with a return of 140 hp, the Proceed had 225/45 R17 wheels, while the XCeed had a capacity of only 120 hp. comes with wider tires on larger 18-inch wheels. Perhaps that is why the results were so similar.
A fairly wide range of models, of course, contributes to the growth of Kia sales volumes. Together, all Ceed models should complete 2019 with more than 90,000 vehicles sold, which is about 25% more than a year ago.
