What used Kia Ceed estate will I get for my budget?
High-mileage Cee'd Sportswagons can be had for less than £3000, but we’d probably advise looking for a car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history – in which case you’d be looking at a starting price of around £6000. Between £7000 and £9000 will find you plenty of good 2015 cars that satisfy that criteria, while around £11,000 starts to secure 2017 cars.

How much does it cost to run a Kia Ceed estate?
It’s the 1.6-litre diesel that’s the most economical, with claimed average fuel consumption of 72.4mpg and corresponding CO2 emissions of 102g/km, while the less powerful 1.4-litre diesel is almost as economical, at 67.3mpg and 109g/km. The post-facelift 1.0-litre petrol model claims an average of 54.3mpg, but the naturally aspirated 1.4-litre petrol is thirstier, at 47.1mpg and 139g/km.
Road tax costs for Cee'd Sportswagons registered before April 2017 varied according to CO2 output, but all were cheap to tax. However, those registered after that date will pay the flat rate, which could be considerably higher. To find out more about road tax costs, click here.
Insurance groups are low, too, running from 11 to 15 for the top-spec diesel model.
Servicing is required every 12 months, but turbocharged petrols require an oil change every 10,000 miles, while diesels and the 1.4-litre petrol can go 20,000 miles between visits. The cost of servicing at a Kia dealership is pretty reasonable, but it’s worth checking whether the car's previous owner had taken out one of Kia’s servicing packages, because this covers the first three or five years of servicing for a fixed price and can be transferred to the car's next owner.
