    My car

    although i haver not driven a Ceed yet , i have already put into my short list of potential purchase,s.I currently own a 2.0 focus and am looking to get a smaller car due to running costs,my focus is 130bhp and the Ceed 1.6 is 120bhp so there is not much differance in power ,however i would not buy a new focus.One of the chief reasons being the application of drums brakes on anything under 2.0 and the fact the new focus is so cramped also the engine range is not that great either the 1.6 is 10bhp down on the Ceed to start with, yet the Ceed has discs allround as standard on all models it is also spacious and very well equiped.I think why should i compramise on safety just to be loyal to a brand.That is why when i do come to change my car next year i will be visiting my local Kia dealer and not Fords

    My car

    I tested a few ceed's both petrol and deisel 1.6 and 1.4 the 1.4 petrol was a bit lazy but the 1.6 d was very quick smooth and quite and I went to two different agents before deciding which to purchase, in the end went back to the dealership in Bognor sussex. Newbarn kia they were very good no hard sell unlike the 2nd dealer i went to I did buy the demo car 1.6 petrol LS with ESP/ LEATHER INTERIOR / Very nice car to drive much better than my focus which i traded in. the brakes are good disc's all round. the steering is ok once you have done a few miles and got the feel of it The one thing which I would comment on is the indicaters on the right hand side. but this has now been put on the left on the later models I had door protecters fitted for obviouse reasons and reversing aids. all in all a very nice car especialy with the 7year warrenty £11999

    My car

    I have had my Cee’d for a year now and it’s the best decision I could have made. Seven year warranty, diesel for the price of petrol and a purchase price that was cheaper than a used Cee’d with 6000 miles on the clock. This is a great car, everyone has enough space (front and rear), and the layout is no fuss with a high quality build to it. I had only had my Cee’d for a week before my dad was so impressed with it that he purchased the same model too.

    If I had to pick a fault with it, the range of colours for the car is limited to seven choices.

    After looking at several of its competitors in this range, VW Golf, Ford Focus, Renault Megane this car certainly has enhanced its badge name with me.

    My car

    I have test driven this car with a view to purchase. On the whole I am fairly impressed. I am seeking to trade in my Kia Picanto and my wife's c3. Once overcoming the percieved stigma attached to the badge, which I have done with my Picanto the range is essentially very good value for money. The Ceed is certainly the best Kia car I have driven with a positive feel and is solidly built. I found the driving position a little cramped because of my size, however the pump action adjustable front seats do help. For the price I believe this is a sound if not exciting car. The warranty is probably the deal sealer
