Both models will run on a combined system of 1.6-litre 4-cylinder petrol engines and 44.5kW electric motors with 8.9kWh lithium-polymer battery packs. When driving, you will enjoy an impressive 139bhp with 264Nm of torque.

Kia claims to have enhanced driving pleasure through the 6-speed dual clutch automatic transmission added to each model. The reasoning against a CVT (continuously variable transmission) was to achieve "reduced powertrain losses from energy conversion".

The Kia XCeed PHEV will provide an all-electric driving range of 36 miles whilst the Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV claims to push out 37. Both models are built with regenerative braking technology which allows the plug-in hybrids to capture any kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost during deceleration.
