Kia XCeed PHEV practicality & boot space
|Length||Width||Height||Boot volume (seats up/down)|
If you're looking for the most practical plug-in Kia, this isn't it. The Ceed Sportswagon PHEV estate and Niro PHEV are both more spacious for passengers and can hold more luggage than the XCeed, so family buyers may be better off with one of those models instead. Younger couples or retirees may have all the space they need in the XCeed, however.
Kia XCeed PHEV interior space, storage & comfort
As it's based on the popular Ceed hatchback, the XCeed is still very much a family car, but its stylish exterior lines have required a few compromises inside. The rising windowine means back-seat passengers – particularly little ones – don't get a great view out, while there isn't a huge amount of knee and foot room in the back for longer-legged occupants.
This is another area where there's a reduction in space from Ceed to XCeed: 426 litres in the non-hybrid five-door hatchback becomes just 291 litres in the plug-in SUV, due to room given over to the car's battery pack. If you want more space, don't forget that you can get the same plug-in hybrid drivetrain in the larger Ceed Sportswagon PHEV estate, which offers a 437-litre boot with its rear seats in place.
