Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Kia Cee’d Sportswagon



What is it like on the road?

Remarkably tidy, even as an estate, using fully independent rear suspension to great effect. You’ll have fun in here.

Bounds from speed bump to pothole without so much as a murmur. Compare this quantum leap in suspension capability over the previous-generation Cerato and you’ll see what strides Kia has made. Rides as well, if not better than, the European competition.

There are five engines available; an 89bhp or 113bhp version of a 1.6-litre diesel and two petrols (a 1.4 with 103bhp or a 1.6 with 121bhp). The 113bhp diesel sounds weedy but isn’t.


How about something completely different?
