Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The interior looks much like that of any other Ceed, with sound ergonomics and a decent enough feel given the price.

There’s plenty of adjustment in the driver’s seat and steering wheel, and the pedals line up nicely so you’re not forced to sit crookedly. Adjustable lumbar support is standard and GT-Line S models get a 10-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

At a time when more and more manufacturers are moving key functions onto touchscreens, the Proceed retains separate buttons and knobs for its air-con, which makes it much easier to tweak things on the move.

There’s no faulting the view out of the front of the Proceed, but over-the-shoulder visibility is quite restricted. That strikingly sloping roofline dictates a rather shallow rear windscreen with a limited view out. It’s as well, then, that a reversing camera and rear parking sensors and are standard.

The standard 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system includes sat-nav and DAB radio as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The screen is responsive, but it lacks physical shortcut buttons to help quickly switch between different menus. Systems in the Skoda Octavia Estate and Volkswagen Golf Estate have clearer graphics with larger icons, too.
