Used Kia Cee’d 12-present

What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Ceed hatchback?

The most obvious alternative to the Kia Cee’d is the similarly priced Hyundai i30. Not only were the two developed alongside each other but they offer similar standard equipment and fuel economy, although the Kia’s longer warranty (by two years) will edge it for many people.

If you prefer something that’s a bit more interesting to drive, the Ford Focus or Seat Leon still hold plenty of appeal as used buys, or if you prioritise boot and interior space, go for the Skoda Octavia.
