A capable answer to a question nobody should be asking
The Kia Cee'd is the car that lobs the paving slab of reality into the windscreen of preconception. It might be a straight clone of a Toyota/Ford/VW hatch, but it’s a damn good one.

Another worthy crossover. Comfy, roomy, but not especially interesting
A very rational car in standard form, which will make your life easy, but not exciting
Unbelievably roomy, versatile, and easy to recommend. But would you want one yourself? That's a harder question...
