City Cars, the commercial agent of the South Korean car brand Kia, continues on the path of innovation by introducing the Kia XCeed to the Tunisian market.
It is a compact crossover whose name is pronounced as’ ixcid ‘, which is actually derived from the English verb’ exceed ‘and inspires usage services that exceed customers’ expectations.
The “C” class crossover has already become very popular in the European market, where it has gained an excellent reputation and great success. Its breathtaking design and exceptional road performance have earned the XCeed top-of-the-line awards.
On this basis, City Cars has increasingly succeeded in expanding its product offering to meet the clearly increasing needs of customers in a highly demanding category.
Bold exterior design and smooth driving
The crossover was designed by teams from Kia’s European Design Center in Frankfurt, Germany. It combines original design with bold ideas, a spacious interior that only the adventurous can imagine, and created exceptional comfort for anyone who appreciates sophistication.
The exterior design of the XCeed redefines Kia’s style codes by giving the crossover a distinctive and defining design touch from its bow (front) to its rear end. The front end is characterized by the “Tiger Nose” decorative grille known to the Kia brand, while the bumper or shock absorber (pare-choc) is completely new. It has a protective part at the bottom, while two chrome-plated rods connect the central air inlet and two anti-fog blocks on the sides.
Next to the car are black plastic screens that support the wheel arches to enhance the aggressive and adventurous look. The rear part works on the same panel with two exhaust outlets (deux sorties d’échappements) integrated in another aluminum-colored screen.
The Kia XCeed is clearly designed for drivers who are looking for sensations and excitement. At first glance, one may realize that the “crossover” is completely different from the prevailing and existing. This is evidenced by its SUV-style calandre grille that includes “Full LED” headlights with “Ice-Cube” LED daytime running lights. Add to that its aerodynamic shape and fun and playful character.
The car’s lowest point is 18 inches off the ground, with an 18-inch inner circle, emphasizing its all-terrain style. In short, it is a dynamic silhouette backed by a steep sloping windshield and rear window.
