Tell me what this is. It’s the new Kia Ceed, the latest version of the car Tom Cruise two-wheeled around Gambon. Both it and the Proceed have enjoyed a rejig for 2015. Kia says it’s new, we say it’s a facelift, and a very mild one on the surface. More interesting things lie beneath the subtly updated headlights and wheel designs, though. Like what? A three-cylinder petrol turbo, called Ecoturbo, joins the engine range, with the aim of tempting a few people out of their diesels and restoring the sales balance between the two fuels to 50:50. It’s a mere 1-litre in size, like the Ecoboost you’ll find in the Focus, and comes with two power outputs, 98bhp and 118bhp. Also like the Ford, then.
