Carbuyer evaluated the cee'd and its competitors with their highly regarded review approach, prioritising the ownership factors which matter most. When summing up running costs, practicality, reliability, manufacturer care, style and equipment, the Kia cee'd came top.
Efficiently powered by a selection of 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrol and diesel engines, the cee'd boasts a high level of specification options across the range including satellite navigation with European mapping, park assist, Bluetooth audio and telephone connectivity, smart key entry, reversing camera display and more. The cee'd also offers excellent practicality such as 1,318 litres of passenger and storage space in the rear, 60/40 split flat folding rear seats and a number innovative storage solutions.
Made in Europe for Europe, the second generation Kia cee'd has been with us since 2012 and has proven increasingly popular with UK customers. It is Kia's third highest selling model in 2014, just behind the Sportage and Picanto. This award further outlines the competitive and consumer friendly offering the cee'd delivers.
Editor of Carbuyer, Stuart Milne, commented on the win: "The Kia cee'd is more than a match for the most upmarket of brands in terms of quality, but it's the reassuring seven-year warranty that really sets it apart. That, coupled with Kia's reputation for reliability makes it a brilliant and worry-free used car choice."
