2019 Kia XCeed 1.0 T-GDI verdict

We test the tough-looking Kia XCeed fitted with the entry-level 1.0-litre petrol. Is it the one to have?...

2019 kia xceed silver driving rear

If you’re sold on the looks, this 1.0-litre version of the Kia Xceed is the one to choose – particularly in entry-level ‘2’ spec – because it combines sprightly performance with good standard equipment and a sensible price.

True, the Ford Focus Active is a slightly better car, but that’s more expensive.

It’s worth noting, though, that the regular Kia Ceed offers better value, while family SUVs such as the Skoda Karoq are more practical.
