What are the key standard features of the Kia Cee’d?
Kia keeps it pretty simple, using the numbers one to four to designate its models.
The entry 1 trim gets 15in steel wheels, front fog lights, air conditioning, Bluetooth, USB and aux audio input, trip computer, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and heated door mirrors.
2 gains 16in alloys, LED daytime running lights, cruise control, leather-trimmed steering wheel and handbrake, rear parking sensors, three driving modes, cornering lights and chrome window, grille and fog light surrounds.
3 adds Sat nav, rear privacy glass, automatic lights and wipers, dual-zone climate control, reversing camera, powered lumbar support and front windscreen wiper de-icer.
4 adds 17in alloys, heated leather front seats, heated steering wheel, stainless steel pedals, front door handle illumination.
4 Tech (over 4) gains Panoramic sunroof, Xenon adaptive front lights, 10-way adjustable powered driving seat, front parking sensors, park assist system and lane departure warning.
What are the key options?
There’s very little by way of optional extra – metallic paint is a chargeable extra on all models, but that’s about it in terms of options. The idea is that customers move up the trim levels to find the kit they want.
How spacious is the Kia Cee’d?
The Cee’d’s status as a good all-rounder means decent room for all occupants, compared with rivals in this hatchback segment. The 380-litre boot is good for the class. With the rear seats folded, that figure increases to a maximum of 1318.
