Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Even tall people will be able to get comfortable in the front of the Ceed, thanks to seats that go back a long way, good head room and plenty of room in the footwell.

Elsewhere, the door bins are a reasonable size, plus there’s storage under the front armrest, a couple of cupholders and useful cubbies for wallets and phones.

Boot space

The Kia Ceed's boot has a reasonably low loading lip, is impressively deep and is a usefully uniform shape. It offers 395 litres of space (a little more than you'll find in the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus), which is enough for five carry-on suitcases under the parcel shelf. That's good, but no match for Skoda's Octavia and Scala – they can swallow 11 and seven cases respectively. 

The Ceed comes with a useful height-adjustable boot floor as standard on all models. With the rear seats folded, you get a smooth and mostly flat extended load bay right up to the back of its front seats.
