The Top Gear car review: Kia Ceed
Final thoughts and pick of the range
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.
