2020 Kia 'XCeed' spied

Spy photographers have snapped the Kia Ceed-based SUV once again during cold weather testing in Europe, ahead of an anticipated reveal in the coming months. The new model is rumoured to be badged the 'XCeed', slotting between the pint-sized Stonic and larger Sportage in Kia Europe's line-up. As the name suggests, the new crossover will have a lot in common with the Ceed hatchback – think of it as a competitor to hatch-based crossovers like the Ford Focus Active and Subaru XV.
