Kia has unveiled the first official sketches of the restyled XCeed compact crossover. The updated model will receive a new look, an upgraded interior, a new GT-line sports trim level, a new variant that will blend the adventurous design cues of a crossover with a sporty feel, and a range of electrified powertrains.

The XCeed gets a refreshed front-end design with a new front and rear LED light signature. In terms of overall aesthetics, the European design team led by Gregory Guillaume has maintained a certain muscularity in the volumes, one of the reasons for the success of the model that is the best-selling Kia in Europe within the Ceed compact family. The Korean manufacturer has also dedicated some specific updates to the interior, more details will be revealed on 18 July at the official presentation of the model.
