Fancy a brand new slightly old Kia c'eed?
Fancy a brand new slightly old Kia c'eed? If so, best be quick. Its manufacturer, you see, has launched the 'new' Kia c'eed but still has a few previous generation models clogging- up its showrooms. As such, these have been reduced. Fancy a few examples? The pro_cee’d 1.4 ‘1’ - which is the three-door hatchback version - now has a starting price of £10,800. That is a £2,500 reduction compared to its previous list price. Alternatively, the top-of-the-range Kia cee’d SW 1.6 CRDi ‘4’ – which is an estate - now costs £16,845; a £3,500 saving. Finally, the five-door hatchback model costs from £11,000; a £2,500 saving.Now, I know what you are thinking. Who wants to spend hard earned cash on an old model? Whereas the out-going c'eed is showing its age - it is still a capable car. It was, after all, a major step forward for its manufacturer in 2007 and a respectable alternative to its mainstream rivals. As such this workhorse is pleasant to drive, practical, nicely equipped, and attractive. It also feels properly screwed together, and is backed-up by a seven year warranty. That alone makes it worthy of consideration. But most of all, particularly now, the out-going Kia c'eed is great value for money. Where else can you buy a family car for £11,000 with a seven year warranty? R.I.P. Kia c'eed. We miss you already.
