The Kia Ceed Sportswagon is competitive in lots of areas but, unlike the best rival estates, it fails to be outstanding anywhere and give us a compelling reason to recommend it over the better-handling Ford Focus, the more practical Skoda Octavia, the fuel-efficient Toyota Corolla or the more refined and comfortable Volkswagen Golf.get the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Our favourite trim level comes with all of the essentials, including 16in alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a leather trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, air-con, cruise control, all-round electric windows, electrically adjusted and heated door mirrors, plus a reversing camera and 8.0in infotainment touchscreen with smartphone connectivity. It’s definitely worth adding the Advanced Driving Assistance Pack for improved safety features.
The engineSee full engine specs
This 118bhp turbocharged three-cylinder engine provides the kind of performance that most buyers will find quite adequate, even on a motorway. It's worth pointing out, though, that similar 1.0-litre turbocharged engines in rivals have a bit more low-down shove, so you need to rev the Ceed's harder to get the best out of it. It’s still the one to go for in the line-up. It’s only available with a manual transmission.
