The Kia Ceed – now in its third generation – has an eye-catchingly refined interior and exterior, with a punchy range of engines to boot. It’s an excellent hatchback overall, loved by city-dwellers for its ability to navigate narrow city streets with ease. The engine range is not to be sniffed at, consisting of a 1.0-litre and a 1.4-litre petrol engine that’ll produce 118 and 138 bhp respectively. Diesel options include a 1.6-litre that will match the petrol’s 138 bhp, while the base trim gives a respectable 52 miles per gallon. The Kia Ceed is an understated compact car that’s as practical as it is stylish.
