Kia Cee'd Sportswagon review

£19,625 - £24,585
Published: 13 Jan 2015
Second generation Cee'd estate illustrates the fast-developing maturity of the Korean giant. Near premium-look alternative to the Focus and Golf.

Good stuff

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

Bad stuff

Not as cheap as it used to be


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.

What's the 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.
