The XCeed tries to combine hatchback and SUV qualities, but doesn't quite pull it off, and the regular Ceed is a better buy. The Seat Leon is roomier and better to drive, while the Skoda Karoq and other SUVs are available for similar money while bringing real practical advantages. The PHEV brings low running costs, but company car drivers would be better off with a Skoda Octavia iV.

This is more of a style upgrade, with different 18in alloys, more aggressive-looking front and rear bumpers, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, GT-Line specific seat design with a suede insert.
