Kia Ceed having been launched, Volkswagen might be worried about the brand gaining in competition with its small and compact car segments.

The pros of this Kia vehicle are numerous:

  • The interiors are of high quality

  • The style is neat

  • The drive is a matured experience

  • The equipments and accessories provide great value for money

There are some limitations that become apparent however:

  • The diesel version is a bit clamorous

  • Petrol versions could perform better on the road

  • At high speed there is considerable noise generated

If you have not seen the Kia Ceed before, you need to know that this is the second generation that was launched last year. It is a firm that is South Korean in origin and it is built-in the Europe. It rivals cars like the Ford Focus or the Volkswagen Golf. The styling and design is the handiwork of Peter Schreyer of Audi. The first Ceed model of Kia was launched in 2006 and it had a successful run in the compact car segment. The range of the car comes with two variants, a petrol and a diesel version. The GDi petrol engine had a horsepower of 133 with a variable valve mechanism. The engine is smooth but is peaky for which one needs to rev it. There is a six speed gear box that is light and shifts quickly. The diesel engine is slightly clattery at high speed.
