Kia is expanding its range in the US with the introduction of the newest member of the XCeed range. The new XCeed Edition is available in three premium metallic paint finishes, including ‘Blue Flame’, ‘Quantum Yellow’ and ‘Lunar Silver’, all at no extra cost.

The XCeed Edition is a new addition to the sporty CUV line-up, and features 18-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, electrically folding, adjustable and heated door mirrors and black cloth with faux leather upholstery. Costing just £200 more than the ‘2’ grade it is based upon, it’s exceptional value for money and includes a long list of standard equipment, including LED bi-function projection headlights with LED daytime running lights, silver roof rails, air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, an eight-inch touchscreen with reversing camera and dynamic guidelines, DAB radio, Bluetooth, voice recognition and music streaming.
