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

‘3’ trim adds quite a bit more kit, including an upgraded infotainment system with a 10.25in screen and online connectivity, rear-parking sensors, lumbar adjustment, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, privacy glass, automatic wipers, power-folding door mirrors, climate control, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, keyless start and 18in alloy wheels. The cost ramps up, though.

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.
