Red Dot Design Award for Kia XCeed
The All-New Kia XCeed urban crossover has been recognised with a 2020 Red Dot design award. The ‘Product Design’ prize makes the XCeed the fourth member of the Ceed model family to receive a Red Dot prize.
The XCeed’s accolade brings Kia’s total number of Red Dot awards to 25, since the brand won its first in 2009. Most recently in 2019, the XCeed’s stablemates – the Ceed, Ceed Sportswagon and ProCeed – were individually recognised for their design strengths by the prestigious awards programme.
The car has been designed exclusively for European customers at Kia’s European design studio in Frankfurt, Germany. It went on-sale in Europe in the second half of 2019, with more than 20,000 examples sold to-date. A new electrified variant of the car, the XCeed Plug-in Hybrid, was launched in the first quarter of 2020.
