An appliance carefully targeted at people who are uninterested in cars.
New Soul puts practicality to the fore, but in other areas less progress has been made.
As sensible and tasty as a dry cracker. A decent enough car, perhaps one for the Freedom Pass brigade.
It won't trouble the cream of the three-door hatch brigade, but it's a mighty good effort, and looks fantastic.
A well-considered first effort from Kia: a hot hatch nicely suited to the everyday real world.
It’s handsome, well-built and pleasant, with Kia’s monster warranty an added draw.
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.
Forget the Magentis, this is a big Kia that's actually appealing. But so too is the cheaper Hyundai i40...
