Review

The Kia XCeed tries to mixes an SUV with a family hatchback, but doesn't pull it off. The regular Kia Ceed is more cost effective, the Seat Leon is roomier and better to drive, and SUVs like the Skoda Karoq are available for similar money and bring real practicality advantages

We’d stick with entry-level ‘2’ trim — not because it’s exceptionally well equipped, but because it keeps costs down. This includes an 8.0in infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, a rear-view camera, 16in alloy wheels, automatic lights, air-con, cruise control and keyless entry.

This entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine has a modest 118bhp but enough low down poke for most situations. It’s our pick of the range.
