New Kia Ceed

Self-confident Ceed

Sporty and emotive in character with a lower and wider stance, a longer rear overhang, a strong shoulder line and an upright stance, the 2018 Kia Ceed has really matured, thanks to being constructed on Kia’s new ‘K2’ platform. There’s a wider ‘tiger-nose’ grille with ‘ice cube’ LED daytime running lights to either side and a lower air intake to make the front end stand out. The wide C-pillar underlines that the Ceed is a truly modern Kia, whilst straight lines have been replaced by rounded edges. At the back, there are new LED daytime running lights and an understated rear boot spoiler. Depending on your chosen Ceed, you’ll receive 15” or 16” steel wheels, 16” aluminium alloy wheels, or 17” two-tone diamond cut alloys. You can also choose between 12 exterior paint colours.

In profile, a more upright stance has been achieved by the use of sharp, straight lines to visually lengthen the bonnet. There’s also a greater sense of maturity and strength in the Ceed’s shoulder line, which now runs along a more horizontal plane, creating a sleek new ‘half-moon’ shape along the upper window-line. To enhance visibility and recognition from the rear, there are new LED daytime running lights.

Constructed on Kia’s new ‘K2’ platform, the Ceed five-door hatchback has wider dimensions and a longer rear overhang than the outgoing model, creating a more assertive and sporty stance, for a more confident presence on the road. From launch, the Ceed range will be available in a choice of 11 paint finishes. A selection of wheels and designs are available, with buyers able to choose from 15-inch steel wheels, 16-inch steel or aluminium wheels, and 17-inch two-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels

Ergonomic Ceed

Impressive, thanks to the use of more high-quality, soft-touch materials throughout, the interior features a driver-centric centre console that’s angled slightly towards you as you sit in the driving seat and is laid out horizontally for a more sculptural and seamless appearance. The dashboard is in two sections, the top section houses the ‘floating’ touchscreen infotainment system, with the audio, heating and ventilation controls below. Overall, there’s more internal space, with the front-seat passenger now enjoying increased legroom and headroom, as well as a better view forward. The rear passengers benefit from an increase in shoulder room. To enhance the cabin of your new Ceed, you can opt for genuine leather upholstery, along with a leather-wrapped gear stick and steering wheel.

Complementing the spacious cabin, there’s generous luggage capacity in the 395-litre boot, increased in size by 15-litres. The boot lip is also substantially lower than before – the lift-over height is reduced by 87mm compared to the outgoing cee’d, making it easier to load heavier items into the boot. A split-level boot floor means you can lower or raise its height to accommodate larger cargo or create a hidden compartment beneath.

Ceed and go

Take your choice between three petrol engines

  • 1.0-litre T-GDi engine, 120PS
  • 1.4-litre T-GDi, 140PS
  • 1.4-litre MPi, 100PS

Kia has also developed a new, cleaner diesel engine, which not only meets, but actually exceeds the requirements of the latest Euro 6d TEMP emissions standard, bringing about a major reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, particulate matter and NOx. This new ‘U3’ 1.6-litre CRDi engine is offered on the Ceed with power outputs of either 115PS or 136PS.

All the 2018 Kia Ceed engines can be specified with a six-speed manual transmission. If you choose the 1.4-litre T-GDi petrol engine or the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel, you can also specify the seven-speed double-clutch transmission.

Comfortable, responsive Ceed

Get behind the wheel of the new Ceed and you’ll soon be aware of just how good the ride and handling have become. To make sure the Ceed has been developed to give its best on roads in the UK, some of the development and tuning work was carried out here. You’ll find there’s a more comfortable ride, better stability at speed and tighter control when cornering, all leading to a more engaging drive. These improvements are largely thanks to the new and fully independent suspension system and the faster steering rack, whilst the spring and damper rates have also been modified.

Technological Ceed

The most high-tech car currently available in its class, the new Ceed incorporates a wealth of innovative technologies to maximise the overall desirability and effectiveness of its infotainment, efficiency, driver experience, comfort and convenience, lighting, safety and driver assistance.

Other safety technologies are also available, including Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Smart Parking Assist. A first for Kia on any of its European range is the ‘Level Two’ autonomous driving technology, Lane Following Assist.

To make taking to the road in your new Ceed even more enjoyable, however cold the morning, just choose the optional heated windshield, another first for any Kia. In addition, heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats are also available.

To keep you and your passengers fully entertained, you can specify the option of the JBL Premium sound system with Clari-Fi music restoration. There’s also an impressive ‘floating’ infotainment system available in either a 5” or 7” touchscreen audio system configuration or an 8” touchscreen navigation system. Standard on the new Ceed range is full Bluetooth smartphone integration, whilst you can also add a wireless smartphone charger.
