Kia Ceed Sportswagon First Look

Kia Cee'd Sportswagon

Korean company Kia have announced a UK launch for a Sportswagon version of their Cee’d family hatchback at price from £16,895 to £24,795.

Kia Cee'd Sportswagon ProductionThe new turbodiesel Cee’d Sportswagon has the same 528-litre bootspace as its hatchback sibling, however the fold down seating increases the capacity to a Tardisian 1642 litres.

Compare that to the Ford Focus (476 and 1502 litres respectively) or an Astra Sports Tourer (500 and 1550 litres) and the new Cee’d has room to claim a competitive place in the class. Unsurprisingly, the new Cee’d is the same size as The Hyundai i40 Tourer , which shares the same build platform.

Under The Hood, the Cee’d sportswagon will feature three engines.

  • The 1.4 CRDi six-speed manual offers: 89bhp, 0-60 in 13.4 seconds, top speed of 106, an impressive 67.3 mpg and C02 emissions of 109.
  • The 1.6 CRDi six-speed manual offers: 126bhp, 0-60 in 10.8, top speed of 120, 64.2 mpg and C02 emissions of 116.
  • The 1.6 CRDi six-speed auto offers: 126bhp, 0-60 in 11.7, 115 top speed, 50.4mpg and 149 C02.
