The Kia Ceed is arguably one of the most underrated cars in its class. Certainly, it gives its rivals a run for their money in a number of areas, like space for example. At 395 litres, the boot is veritably cavernous and larger than the equivalent Golf or Focus load space. There is plenty of head and leg room in the rear and both front and rear passengers are cosseted by high-quality materials and soft-touch plastics and a neat 'floating' touchscreen infotainment system. Entry level equipment levels are generous and include alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, a reversing camera and wireless phone charging. The Ceed is also great to drive whether it be powered by the punchy petrol or the frugal diesel engine variant. The drive is smooth and refined and is complimented by an excellent suspension set-up that is ideally suited to Irish roads.
