Kia Ceed Sportswagon

Best buy Less than £18,000: Kia Ceed Sportswagon 1.4 CRDi 90 1 ISG
Kia Ceed

At first glance it might seem a bit odd that we favour the 1.4 CRDi in the Ceed estate when we prefer the 1.6 CRDi in the hatchback. That's only because the 1.6 CRDi has the lower emissions in the hatch, whereas the 1.4 is more efficient in the estate. It's far from fast, but the 1.4 offers good mid-range response that feels more sprightly than the lazy 0-60mph time suggests.

Cheapness and efficiency aren't the Ceed Sportswagon's only star qualities. The spacious, 510-litre boot has the requisite long, flat load bay – with or without the seats folded – and convenient underfloor storage in the boot.

There's plenty of room for four adults, and although the 1.4 CRDi is available only in '1' spec, this includes air-con, multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth, USB input, hill-hold assist, and six airbags.

It's also a pleasant thing to drive, with a forgiving ride and compact dimensions that make it easy to park and manoeuvre around town.
