Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

Kia improves things yet again. Refinement, styling and interior quality are nearly as good as anything out there. Nearly…

The Ceed has matured into something approaching the top of the class – if nothing else, the lack of the ridiculous apostrophe scores it a couple of extra points. This is as close as Kia has ever been to European rivals, with the sort of refinement and quality that the VW Group had a monopoly on not that long ago. If you want your Euro-hatch to be comfortable, reliable and come with enough tech to make every commute more manageable, you won’t go far wrong with a Ceed.

However, if you want to have fun on the occasional journey when the car isn’t loaded with kids or you’re not stuck in traffic, then look elsewhere. Otherwise, though, a fine effort from Korea.
