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

Compared with the Connect trim, you don’t get all that much more with the ‘3’ trim. That said, the upgrade will get you rear parking sensors, rain sensing front wipers, heated front seats, dual automatic air conditioning and a USB fast charger in the front. You do, however, get the upgraded AEB system that can sense cyclists and pedestrians.

This plug-in hybrid combines a 1.6-litre petrol engine with a battery pack and electric motor. Fully charged, it’ll do 29 miles, according to official figures, but it isn’t as swift as more powerful PHEV rivals.
