Review

The Kia Xceed mixes SUV looks with hatchback running costs, but, compared with the regular Kia Ceed, you pay a big premium for its extra style. Proper family SUVs such as the Skoda Karoq are more practical, too.

get the best price

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.
