Our test car from Autohaus Günther in Hamburg-Farmsen is a very early example and was first registered in the summer of 2019. It is now on sale with 43,271 kilometers for 22,990 euros. Given the new price, which Schwacke’s database shows to be 31,390 euros, there would now be almost a third of the savings.
Used Kia Xceed: Technical equipment more than complete
And it looks old Xceed certainly still, despite a subtle facelift in autumn 2022. Front space is generous, back and in the trunk at least family-friendly. In terms of equipment, the Launch Edition is more than complete: heated seat and steering wheel, keyless entry system, electric seats with memory function and a panoramic roof often cost a small fortune from the competition.
Signs of wear are rare on our test car
More important, however, is the question of quality after three and a half years. Superficially, it is better: to get a lot of noise to close the door, you have to look for a long time, even on premium compacts. All internal equipment is above average, at least in the upper range. However, simpler plastic can also be found from the knee length down and on the trunk.
103 kW (140 hp) at 6000 rpm
Consumption with a 1.4-liter gasoline engine: about seven liters
In terms of driving technology, there is diversity. The base is a 120 hp turbo petrol engine. In testing Xceed it works with a super injection 1.4 liter turbo with 140 hp and a gasoline particulate filter. This engine uses about seven liters of Super, meets the Euro 6d-Temp emission standard and has enough fuel for a car, which weighs up to 1.8 tons.
It will be faster and bigger, 160 and 204 hp gasoline engine T-GDI. The 1.6 CRDi diesel with 115 and 136 hp, which can be found from 19,000 euros, is suitable for frequent drivers. More innovative is the plug-in hybrid variant with 141 hp and around 40 km of electric range, which starts at 25,000 active euros.
