  • Con: No longer the cheap alternative, not quite as sharp to drive as rivals

New Kia Cee'd reviews

The latest Kia Cee'd is no longer the bargain basement medium car option - it's priced on a par with rivals, such as the Ford Focus, but it's a far more refined car that's better equipped than rivals, so it represents better value for money. And some people think it's more distinctive looking than its established rivals. Click on the link below to find out how it stacks up in our rigorous test.

  • Kia Cee'd (2012-)

    Kia Ceed 2012 01

    New price: £14,395 - £23,885

    Can the new second-generation Kia Cee'd keep up the strong showing scored by the first Cee'd?
  • Kia Cee'd (2007-2012)

    Kia Ceed 1

    New price: £11,005 - £19,630

    Forget the daft name, the Kia Cee'd is a medium hatch that takes on the Focus and Golf. And it's cheaper than either.
  • Kia Cee'd SW (2012-)

    Kia Ceed SW 1

    New price: £16,895 - £24,795

    Is the latest Cee'd SW estate the last word in value-for-money load lugging?
  • Kia Cee'd SW (2007-2012)

    Kia ceed sw 2012 1

    New price: £14,780 - £21,430

    The Kia Cee'd SW is a medium estate that can take on the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. And it's cheaper than either.

Used Kia Cee'd reviews

The first generation Kia Cee'd isn't as refined as the latest version, but it's a practical family car with plenty of room inside and strong reliability in spite of its advancing years. The petrol-engine can be noisy, and it's not that economical, but these shortcomings aren't putting owners off.
