New Kia Ceed Seems Like A Smart Choice In A Crowded Segment

The third-generation Kia Ceed has arrived in the European market with greater ambitions than ever, entering the compact segment against models like the VW Golf, the Opel Astra and its cousin, the Hyundai i30.

Designed and engineered in Germany, the new Ceed is now lower and wider than its predecessor for a more dynamic and mature stance. The front overhang is shorter, while the rear one is longer, altering the proportions of Kia’s compact hatchback.

The cabin is logically laid out, featuring good-quality materials and plenty of features, including an up-to-8-inches touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The luggage space is also larger, offering 395 liters in capacity.

Kia has made sure to include almost every active safety system available on the new Ceed, including active cruise control with Lane Follow Assist and Stop & Go, Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, pedestrian recognition and more.

The engine range includes a pair of turbocharged petrol engines and one diesel unit. Petrol models start with the 1.0-liter T-GDI with 120PS, followed by the 1.4-liter T-GDI with 140PS, while the all-new 1.6-liter CRDi diesel is offered with either 115PS or 136PS.

The big question however is whether the new Kia Ceed is really as good as it sounds on paper. And you can find out by watching the review in the video that follows.
