The new Ceed Sportswagon shares the same wide choice of powertrains as the five-door hatchback, meeting diverse buyer needs. Gasoline options include Kia’s popular 1.0-litre T-GDi engine, producing 120ps, as well as a new 1.4-litre T-GDi power unit. Replacing the earlier 1.6-litre GDI engine, the new ‘Kappa’ 1.4-litre T-GDi engine produces 140ps, 4% more than its predecessor despite its lower displacement. The engine’s turbocharger ensures a wider torque band than the earlier 1.6-litre engine, making it more responsive in a wider range of driving conditions – while also reducing emissions. Both T-GDi engines are fitted with a gasoline particulate filter to further reduce tailpipe emissions, ensuring the new Ceed Sportswagon goes beyond the requirements of the Euro 6d TEMP standard. A 100ps 1.4-litre MPi (multi-point injection) engine will also be available. The new Ceed Sportswagon is also available with Kia’s all-new ‘U3’ diesel engine.
Every engine will be paired with a six-speed manual transmission, while the new 1.4-litre T-GDi and 1.6-litre CRDi engines will also be available with Kia’s seven-speed double-clutch transmission.
