Kia has published the first sketches of the upcoming 2023 XCeed facelift model. The car has been around since mid-2019 and this mid-cycle refresh will be unveiled on 18th of July.

One of the biggest change, since we expect to see minor modifications of the exterior, is the debut of the GT-Line trim.

The sporty-look specification wasn’t available in the lineup until now.

More than that, Kia said that the revised XCeed facelift will be equipped only with mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains.

In Kia line-up, the PHEV combines a 1.6 liter petrol engine with a dual cluth six speed automatic transmission and a 44.5 kW electric motor, and a 8.9 kWH lithium-ion battery pack. We expect to see the same arrangement on the updated Kia XCeed facelift.
