The Ceed is competitive in lots of areas and a perfectly decent car. However, unlike its best rivals, it fails to be outstanding in any area. Long warranty aside, there's little compelling reason to recommend it over the better-handling Ford Focus, the more practical Skoda Octavia, or the more refined and comfortable VW Golf. The 1.0-litre petrol in entry-level '2' trim is the sweet spot of the Ceed line-up.

We suspect most buyers will find the entry-level 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine is brisk enough for their needs. Although it needs working fairly hard to gain speed, it’s fine as long as you aren't in a rush. It's also significantly cheaper than the more powerful 1.4 turbo.
