Kia Cee'd Look past the Badge.
Member Name: MiniReview101
Advantages: Good diesel engine, comfort and space, 7 year warranty
Disadvantages: Not a lot but, not cheap for a Kia
We have owned our Kia cee'd 1.6 crdi SW for two years now, and to be quite honest we couldn't be happier. The car still manages to surprise us now and again with the way it performs and the amount of space the Cee'd has to offer.
The car will carry five adults in reasonable comfort and with enough room in the back for all their day to day luggage.
If you fold the rear seats flat it has almost van like proportions swallowing almost anything that you would like to throw at it within reason.
The interior is well laid out and all the controls are easy to use and it also boasts an excellent sound system.
The engine in the Kia Cee'd is one of its strong points, it pulls strongly from low to the mid rev range, where most of us average drivers use it.
In everyday use the car is more than adequate, with a smoothness and quietness of a much more expensive car. It's not the quickest thing off the line but then I can't see any boy racers buying a family car like the Cee'd, one things for sure when you catch up with them at the next lights, you will have got there using less fuel, in more comfort, and your sound system will not have to be on full blast to be able to hear it.
I am finding it difficult to pick holes in our Kia Cee'd, but if I was to be pickie the first thing I would mention is that it is not cheap for a Kia, but then the 7 year warranty says alot about it's build quality, 100% better than the Kia of old.
The Kia Cee'd is not for every one but if you are looking for a good reasonably priced family car, then look past the badge and take it for a test drive then ask yourself if the other cars in it's class are worth the extra money... I think you might be suprised.
Summary: Better than average family car.
