While the Ceed is competitive in lots of areas and a perfectly decent car, unlike the best rivals, 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, or the more refined and comfortable VW Golf. Except perhaps PCP finance, where it's right on the money, so if it falls into your monthly budget, we've no doubt the Ceed will serve you well.

This range-topping model gets all the kit available with 3 trim plus front parking sensors, automatic parking, adaptive cruise control, heated and ventilated front seats with electric adjustment for the driver’s pew, leather upholstery, a big electric sunroof, LED headlights and an upgraded stereo. It’s a lot of extra kit, but then it is a lot more money.

We suspect most buyers will find that the entry-level 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine is brisk enough for their needs. Although it needs working fairly hard to gain speed in a hurry, it’s fine if you’re not in a rush. But the Skoda Octavia’s equivalent 1.0 is far more flexible and refined.
