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.

Trim: 3

‘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.

Engine: 1.6 CRDi ISG

The 134bhp 1.6-litre CRDi diesel isn't as quick as either petrol, but has a gutsy power delivery at medium revs. High-mileage drivers looking to maximise economy might be able to justify paying its price premium.
