Introducing the Kia Ceed

The Ceed made a big impression when it was initially introduced to the UK market back in 2006. Since then, it has only gone from strength-to-strength thanks to a series of updates, which include Kia's now widely recognised design language.

The latest generation brings a host of new additions, which have enhanced the way the Ceed drives. As a result, the Ceed is better than ever and more than worthy of consideration if you need a hatchback for the family.

It's backed by Kia's magnificent 7 year warranty too, for total peace of mind and affordability. Keep on reading to learn more about the Kia Ceed and how it could improve your life on a daily basis.

Design and Practicality

Kia Ceed Side Profile

The exterior of the Kia Ceed has been nicely upgraded and still features the distinctive 'Tiger Nose' grille and 'ice cube' LED daytime running lights. There's a wide range of distinctive colours to choose from during configuration, meaning your car stands out from the crowd.

The 5-door hatchback model also now boasts a larger 395-litre boot - larger than some crossovers and SUVs - alongside plenty more room for passengers, including more headroom in the front row and a lower driving position.

The Ceed Sportswagon has a fantastic amount of space for both passengers and luggage. With 625-litres of load space, which can extend to 1,694-litres when rear seats are folded, there's plenty of opportunity to store anything from five suitcases to a couple of golf bags.

Technology and Safety

Kia Ceed Interior

Safety features in the Kia Ceed are probably the biggest addition, improving safety, comfort and convenience at the same time. Forward Collision Warning and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist provide pedestrian protection throughout every journey.

Smart Cruise Control is another available option in the Ceed. This system automatically modulates the vehicle's speed and maintains a proper distance from the vehicle in front. Lane Following Assist adds more safety comfort as it works in conjunction with Smart Cruise Control to ensure the vehicle is kept within the centre of the lane at all times.

Alongside that, the entertainment system has been updated by adding a super powerful JBL Premium sound system speakers with Clari-Fi music restoration and a wireless smartphone charger. Look forward to playing your own music through the highest quality system during every journey!

Economy and Performance

Kia Ceed Front

Kia Ceed is available with a choice of three petrol or two diesel engines. You're also given the option of a 6-speed manual and an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The petrol engines range from between 120 and 204 bhp, with the most potent unit reserved for the sporty GT models. The entry-level engine returns a very welcome 52.3 mpg, while the mid-range 1.4-litre turbocharged model will give you 48.7 mpg. Expect high thirties from the most powerful variant.

If you spend a lot of time on the motorway, then the 1.6-litre diesel engines are your best bet. With over 74 mpg possible on a combined cycle and performance available from low down in the rev range, these units are solid performers.


Kia Ceed Sportswagon

The Ceed Sportswagon takes all of the fantastic traits from the Ceed hatchback and adds an extra layer of practicality. While the rest of the car remains unchanged, the boot space is increased by 36% to 625 litres. This is enough to carry pushchairs, the weekly shop and a few more bits besides, or you can chuck in a couple of bikes. 

It's managed to retain or even enhance the good looks of the regular Ceed hatchback too. The rear of the car has been given a stylish sloping design that features a noticeably lower loading lip, so it's easy to throw things in the back. 

Overall then, the Sportswagon takes an already fantastic family car and gives you more room in the back to work with. So if that's what you're looking for, the Ceed Sporstwagon will work perfectly for you.
