The Top Gear car review: Kia Cee’d Sportswagon

£19,625£24,585
6/10
Overall verdict
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.
 

For: 

A practical, useful, cheap alternative to a premium brand. Seven year warranty and good equipment levels are a bonus

Against: 

Not as cheap as it used to be

Overview

What is it?

It’s a near premium-look alternative to more mundane Ford Focus and VW Golf estates. A good egg all round, then.
