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.get the best price

No Ceed Sportswagon is poorly equipped. Even entry-level 2 cars get automatic headlights, air conditioning, cruise control, 16in alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and all-round electric windows.Plus you can add the 8.0in touchscreen with smartphone connectivity (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), a reversing camera and lots of safety kit. However, pricier Ceed Sportswagons offer greater versatility.

The 1.6-litre diesel pulls more eagerly from all but very low revs than the petrols. So, while it’s ultimately no faster than the 1.0-litre petrol (0-60mph takes 10.7sec), its extra low-end shove is worth having if you tow a trailer or caravan.
