Why Lease A Kia Ceed?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Ceed has a bigger boot than most of its key rivals, so if space is what you need then look no further. The standard hatchback has a 395-litre boot, making it roomier than the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford Focus. Diesel versions have slightly less room, but they’re still a decent size at 357 litres. If you’re worried that won’t be enough, try the Sportswagon and its 625-litre load bay. Just be aware the plug-in hybrid and diesel powertrains will reduce that space.
In the cabin, the Ceed is about average for cars in this class. That said, you get lots of cubby holes and a good glovebox, as well as big door bins. Rear space is adequate, but headroom is good, so you can easily fit adults in the back. Putting 3 across the rear bench might be a squeeze, though.
Choosing the most efficient Ceed to lease will come down to your lifestyle. If you do lots of long journeys, the mild-hybrid diesels will come up trumps. The 1.6-litre engine can manage more than 60mpg, which should keep bills down on long drives. If you do fewer miles, you might prefer the 1.0-litre petrol engine that does more than 50mpg, or the 1.5-litre engine that manages about 48mpg. Even the GT model’s 204hp petrol engine will do more than 40mpg.
If you do lots of very short trips and you have somewhere to charge your car, the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is well worth a look. With a 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor, the PHEV will do 29 miles on electrical power before the engine is needed. For short trips to the shops, school or even work, it’ll barely burn a drop of unleaded. However, it’s only available with the Sportswagon body shape.
The Kia Ceed Vs Competitors
Kia has a good reliability record and the Ceed continues that tradition. The mechanical components are solid and the electrical systems are dependable. And in the unlikely event something does go wrong, there’s a 7-year warranty for peace of mind.
The Ceed hatchback has a 395-litre boot. That’s slightly larger than you’ll find in a Volkswagen Golf, but not quite as roomy as the Honda Civic. Diesel versions have a little less room, with 357-litre boots. If you’re worried about space, consider the Sportswagon estate with its 625-litre luggage bay.
Leasing a Ceed gives you a choice of 5 main trim levels. Despite its name, the 2 is the entry-level option, even though it comes with a touchscreen and a reversing camera. Next up is the 3, and then you’re into the sporty-looking GT-Line, GT-Line S and GT models.
Yes, but they don’t come as standard. Entry-level cars miss out on parking sensors, but they come with a standard reversing camera. Climb the range and you get rear parking sensors. Top-end models also get front sensors and a parking assistance system.
The Ceed is one of the more practical models in its segment. The standard hatch has a good-sized boot and decent interior space, but the Sportswagon is even roomier.
