How much does it cost to run a Kia Ceed hatchback?

MPG

Running costs for the Ceed are pretty reasonable for the class. The 1.0-litre petrol model has a WLTP combined fuel economy figure of 50.4mpg with the Eco Pack or 48.7mpg without it. The 1.4 petrol is a touch thirstier, at 45.6mpg, but the top-of-the-range 1.6 is the costliest to run, on 39.2mpg.

The diesels are obviously cheaper to run than the petrols. The most economical is the 114bhp 1.6-litre with the Eco Pack, having a combined figure of 58.9mpg, but even the regular versions gets 57.6mpg. The 134bhp engine isn’t far off, either, at 56.5mpg.

Road tax

Road tax for all models registered after 1 April 2017 will have the same flat rate fee for cars that cost less than £40,000 when new, currently £150 a year. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing

Kia has a number of service packs, so it's worth finding out if your car has any services remaining with your local Kia dealer. Petrol models require a service every year or 10,000 miles, while diesels need an oil change annually or every 20,000 miles.
