The 2020 Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV is a very handsome (we say sexy) compact estate, but the plug-in hybrid powertrain is about efficiency not speed.
The 2020 Kia Ceed Sportswagon plug-in hybrid has 104kW (139hp) and 265Nm (195 lb-ft), a 6-speed DCT, and a 8.9kWh battery for a 60km (37mi) EV range.
The 2019 Kia Ceed GT hatch has a 1.6L turbo I4 with 150kW (201hp) and 265Nm (195 lb-ft), a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT, 18″ wheels, and lower suspension.
The 2018 Kia Ceed has finally dropped the stupid apostrophe (good riddance Cee’d!!), but it’s also now deathly boring. It’s a hatch. It will sell. Great.
For its third generation, the 2018 Kia Ceed now shares most of its body panels with the US Forte sedan, but how does it compare to its platform mate, the Hyundai i30?
The 2018 Kia Ceed Sportswagon has a longer rear overhang, a larger trunk with 600L (21.2 cu ft) of storage, and a 40/20/40 split fold rear seat.
The 2018 Kia Ceed hatch has a plainer body, and shares many of its panels with the US’ Forte sedan. It also drops the stupid apostrophe, so it’s no longer the Cee’d.
The second generation Kia Cee’d, launched in 2012, moved upmarket to better compete with its European-made hatchback competition.
