Review

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. The option of a PHEV is great for company car drivers, but that's not as good as the similarly priced and much bigger Skoda Superb Estate iV.

This trim is our pick, because it's still reasonably affordable, yet brings some very desirable features, including sat-nav with a 10.3in touchscreen, power-folding door mirrors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, smarter dashboard trims and remote folding rear seats that split and fold 40/20/40 (60/40 for the PHEV). The PHEV adds LED headlights, an electronic parking brake, keyless entry and a front armrest.
