It a good looking car that feels solid, well built and safe.
I would have expected the engine to be a little more sportier, it seems a bit lacklustre sometimes

The car is quiet, refined and extremely well equipped. I particularly like the relaxed driving in high gears at slower speeds with this petrol version ( 4/5 th gear at 30mph in town is a real improvement on my previous diesel c'eed.) I love the headlight corner lights that really illuminate bends and have much appreciated the cruise control on our speed restricted sections of M1. I have been amazed at the fuel economy of this petrol car- as good as my last diesel.
The car has loosened up a lot in 1600miles and performs really well, but I do miss a little the low end torque of the diesel, particularly on hills, but changing down sorts this and I have to remind myself that petrol car driving is different to a Diesel!!

I love the how the headlamps operate when turning. Underground car parks are a lot easier now. The whole vehicle is brilliant.
I am sorry, there isn't any. I have tried and tried to find a negative, but failed.

Independent Reviews

Kia cee'd Honest John Review May 2012 There is no doubt that the new KIA cee’d for 2012 is a good-looking car. The styling simply works in the manner that an Audi A3 or a Vauxhall Astra are pleasing to the eye, yet clearly have a family resemblance to other cars from the same stable.
Look at the trademark ‘bow tie’ grille, the swept back headlights and coupe-like rake to the rear and it clearly bears a family resemblance to the KIA Picanto, KIA Rio, KIA Sportage and KIA Optima.
It’s not a forced look and it doesn’t make the cars impractical. 380 litres of boot space in the new cee’d is, for example, much more than the 277 litres in the current Focus. True, KIAs aren’t brilliant to reverse park in the rain, but you can’t have everything. (And you do get a reversing camera in top versions with built-in satnav.)

'Wow!” is not a word that has often reverberated around the cabin when somebody sits in a Kia car for the first time. But that, truly, was the sound I heard coming from my mouth when I got behind the wheel of the top-spec 1.6 CRDi version of the new Kia Cee’d. I was almost as surprised at myself as by the brazenly self-confident presence of this car. 

The rise of the Korean Kia/Hyundai group during the past 10 years is one of the world’s most dramatic and significant stories, with profound implications for the international balance in business, politics and economics. As with the Tata group of India, owners of Jaguar Land Rover, the planet has tilted on its axis under the weight of Kia/Hyundai’s ferocious, brilliantly orchestrated assault.
