Kia Ceed 2020 in-depth review | carwow Reviews

  • Published on Jan 15, 2019
  • This is the new Kia Ceed! When it comes to people choosing their favorite hatchback, the Kia Ceed is unlikely to appear at the top of many peoples lists. But with a starting price of just over £18,000 (along with a saving of over £2,000 with carwow!), is it time people took a second look at the Ceed when it comes to choosing a new hatchback?

    No no no no no, when you pay for Samsung, you support technological progress.
    You pay extra only for the name when you purches anything from apple. Also this means you support technological regression.

    Mat great work, your reviews are always spot on. My question is why you haven't made a review on KIA RIO as well. I have read the review on carwow but a video review is always better. Was it that bad?? Because I consider the Rio as one of the best options to buy in terms of my needs and budget. Looking forward to your answer!!

    I've tried doing some research on the audio system. Some sources say that above entry levels it comes with a 8 speaker jbl system. But according to some sources there is a completley other system. It might be a small issue, but I really want a good audio system if I'm going for a new car.

    I was going to seriously contemplate this as my next car until the bit when you started talking about the cornering, ‘The kinda people that are going to buy a Kia ceed ‘, ‘not the best job’, I like the thrill of driving too much to settle for something where you feel disconnected from the road..

    Message to a man who will bought Matt s Audi one day. I recommend chemical cleaning of the whole vehicle because this man has a huge wet dream about German cars. Probably jerking off in his car imagining that German cars are exciting and so practical, and German plastic.....

    Not often the manufacturers provide the base model but it makes the review more reflective of the models people will actually buy. Good for you Kia for not sending the top of the range model.

  • Jeremy Lister

    The wiper arm problem will be really annoying in winter or when cleaning the car. Can you imagine taking the car for a carwash, and the staff damage the paintwork. How could Kia get this simple thing wrong?
    So, does it have the same transmission problem as its sister car, the i30?
    That car, both 1 litre and 1.4 litre can be very tricky to set off smoothly. At low speed the transmission can jerk forward and back, almost as if the drive shafts are made of rubber. In technical terms it's an underdamped transmission oscillation. Horrible in stop start traffic.
    What causes it? Dunno, clutch design? low engine mass?
    1 litre also vibrated too much at idle.
    BTW it's not my driving. No problem at all in other cars eg C-Max with 1 litre engine..silky smooth in comparison

    Is the JBL soundsystem + the 8" screen with NAV on the 1.0 120hp worth it over the 1.4 140hp? I'd like the bigger engine too, but it exceeds my budget sadly. I wonder which one of those two would you guys pick

  • Tony B
    Tony B 4 months ago

    If you just want a car on a budget then the likes of Kia are more than sufficient, if you had more money to spend then anything else would be a better choice, and no, its not badge snobbery, the quality of the competition is just a big step up over the Korean manufacturer in this part of the sector, yes the kia gets a lot of kit for what you pay but the cost in ride would put me off as it becomes tiring on longer trips and i would like to see better economy from a 1ltr engine which if driven around town is not much more than my 1.6ltr with nearly 3x the power output. Kia are getting there but they need to concentrate on comfort and ride as much as they do of value for money.

    If you just want a cheap to own transport that will cause you no problems for 10 years and don't want the cost and hassle of a Golf - this is the ideal car! Shame it's kinda dull.

    The i30 had the same characteristics in a year younger model, yet you advised to consider it comparing it pretty harshly with its european counterparts. As an i30 owner this annoys me a bit, but I couldn't be more satisfied with it so I don't really care that much :D

    Sure, it's not a girl reviewing like Rebecca or Ginny, but Mat's reviews are still quite enjoyable, the 5 annoying and 5 cool features is always something i've looked forward too, i'm hooked, it's informative and off course I can concentrate better on the reviewing part. At least it's better than James Batchelor....

    Fab review, looking for my next lease car when my BMW m135i runs out this year. I’m surprised how much equipment this car comes with on the entry model! My flashy m135i didn’t even get cruse control as standard never mind the rest, and it’s a car retailed at 30grand!

    Another good review people who accuse Matt of being biased need to grow up just because he doesn't share your views anyway Kia as a brand are slowly catching up with the likes of Ford and VW etc nice car and good value for money.

    Coming from an 2004 Megane 2 with 1.9 dci Diesel engine i have to say, that the current 2018/19 engines below 1.6 liters are really a bit on the slow side. Sure, the fuel economics are better, but i really like to have that extra bit of power left as a reserve for travelling (4 people and fully loaded trunk into vacations) or to have a bit fun on b-roads.

    Your top 5 annoying things sounded sarcastic 😆 as if there are no annoying things in the car since they're barely noticable unlike some others which can be found in cars way more expensive than this! Throuout the review I was wondering how practical everything is in this car. It's been a while since we came across a car not ridden with the latest so and so tech or feature( which loses it's charm after a while anyway) but with practical & straight forward ones. Kudus to Kia!
    We need more cars like this nowadays since the purchasing power of an average adult does not increase in the same manner as the prices of things. Pricing which almost justifies the item.
    Anyway, great review mate. G'day!

    The headlights on automobiles they build now are way too bright. It's like the "brights" are on. It's an epidemic. Also the color white isn't the best for lights. If it was then Airports would use that color but they don't. The Aviation industry uses yellowish lights for many reasons.

    I like the interior a lot. Seems practical, something that many manufacturers tend to overlook in favour of "flashiness". Having hardware buttons for things you want to control on the fly while driving is so important.
    Overall, I'd probably pick this over most of the competitors. Adequate engine selection, trim options and great value. How are they reliability-wise? A 7 year warranty would end up a blessing and a curse if you spend half your time in service
