The House intervened on the exterior design and made several changes to the interior, underlining the XCeed’s urban sporting nature to differentiate it and make it even more distinctive within the great Ceed family.
The GT-line sporty set-up it was introduced today for the first time in the Xceed range and, combined with the Mild Hybrid engines, guarantees the right mix of dedicated sporty aesthetic elements and driving efficiency.

XCeed in the Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) version, with rechargeable battery pack, ensures a fully electric range of 48 kilometers in the mixed cycle, which corresponds to 60 km of city driving.
