What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Ceed hatchback?
If you want maximum interior space, the Skoda Octavia is better than the Kia Ceed. It also offers a broader range of engines, from a tiny yet capable 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol to a 242bhp 2.0-litre unit in the vRS hot hatch model, plus a few fuel-sipping diesels. All versions are easy to drive and very competent motorway cruisers.
The current Ford Focus improves on the weaknesses of its forebear, with much more interior room and a more intuitive infotainment system, even if the dowdy interior does it no favours. It’s excellent to drive, too, no matter which engine you choose.
