Kia Motors Europe has issued yet another teaser for its upcoming XCeed crossover, this time showing off the new available digital instrument cluster.

The 12.3-inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels, incorporating virtual dials and a multifunction display in the centre.

Drivers will be able to switch between navigation, audio, phone and trip computer information using the multifunction section.

Additionally, the display and dials will adapt to each drive mode chosen – which include Normal and Sport at this stage. In 'Normal', the display defaults to fuel efficiency gauges and traditional dials, while 'Sport' makes the speed and rev counter take centre stage, with "non-essential" information hidden to minimise "visual distractions".

Kia Europe has also indicated the digital driver's display will be drawn upon "other mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles in the future" – suggesting the XCeed will offer 48V MHEV tech like its Ceed stablemate.

While the XCeed will debut the digital dash in Europe, it's not the first time we've seen a Virtual Cockpit-aping binnacle in a Kia. The flagship K900 sedan and new Telluride SUV offer similar features in the States, for example.

The all-new Kia XCeed will be revealed on June 26, stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage.

Australia

While Europe will get the XCeed to join the Ceed and Proceed family, Australia is set to get the all-new Seltos, based on the SP Signature concept, before the end of the year.

It appears the Seltos and XCeed will be revealed around the same time, given both are slated for their debuts in June.

The Seltos will also be sold across the wider Asia-Pacific region, along with North America, where it will slot under the Sportage.
