Review

The Kia ProCeed may place its emphasis on looks, but is otherwise very similar to the commendable Ceed and Ceed Sportswagon. Looks aside, it offers little extra incentive to opt for it over its sister models or more practical estate rivals.

get the best price

There are some sensible extras with the GT-Line S to help justify its position in the Proceed range, including a more advanced emergency brake aid that recognises pedestrians, additional seating flexibility with a 40/20/40 split rear bench, brighter LED headlights, front parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control. You also get electric driver’s seat adjustment with memory settings, an upgraded stereo and a 12.3in digital instrument cluster. However, you’ll have to fork out a sizeable amount for it over the already well-specified GT-Line model to get it.

There’s no cheap 1.0-litre option like the Ceed hatchback, so the entry-level engine is this 158bhp 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol. It strikes a good balance between price, running costs and performance, rarely feeling malnourished - provided you’re prepared to rev it out.
