What Car? says...

It’s fair to say that anyone looking for a family-friendly set of wheels is somewhat spoilt for choice these days, so how does the Kia Ceed stand out?

Well, for starters it gets an industry-leading seven-year warranty, along with pretty competitive pricing and a decent equipment list, especially as you move up the range. So, if you’re looking for something sensible the Kia Ceed seems to tick a lot of boxes on paper already.

And even if a long-warranty and reasonable pricing doesn’t quite set your heart alight; there's more. This current Ceed boasts a lineup of engines which includes an eye-catching GT model, which is a warm hatch variant boasting 201bhp.

There are also a few different body types of the Ceed in Kia’s lineup, too. There’s an estate version called the Ceed Sportswagon, and there’s even a swoopy, svelte, stylish estate sibling called the Proceed.

But here we’re focusing on the hatchback version. So does the Ceed have the talents to triumph over its more established rivals like the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra? That’s something we’ll investigate over the next few pages. And remember, if you want to buy a Ceed or any other new car on sale, head to our New Car Buying service for some hefty savings.
