New Kia Xceed SUV to get Supervision digital dash
South Korean car manufacturer Kia Motors has posted another teaser pic showing its upcoming crossover SUV based on the Ceed platform. The car will ship with a new digital dashboard design called Supervision.
The supervision is a high-definition color display measuring 12.3 inches across. It comes as a replacement for the analog instrument cluster (tachometer, odometer) and the old 4.2-inch TFT screen of the regular Ceed.
Various useful data, such as status warnings, the remaining fuel level, and navigation directions are displayed in the middle part of the screen.
Compared to its elder siblings, the XCeed sports a different front fascia design, which includes the headlights, the radiator grille and the bumper. It also boasts plastic guards throughout the body and rides taller than the hatchback due to various suspension improvements.
Rumor has it that the new SUV will go on sale with the same assortment of engines as the standard Ceed. This includes a 1.0-liter turbo three-cylinder engine rated at 120 hp (90 kW), a 1.6-liter diesel unit producing 115 hp (86 kW), and two turbocharged V4s rated at 140 and 200 hp (104 and 149 kilowatts, respectively).
The premiere of the new Kia XCeed is scheduled for June 26, 2019, which is just a couple of weeks away.
