The new Kia cee’d has been named Northern Car of the Year by the Northern Group of Motoring Writers.
Derrick Grocock, Vice Chairman of the Northern Group of Motoring Writers, presenting the traditional miner’s lamp trophy said “over the last 12 months there have been some fantastic new products brought to car buyers by the world’s most vibrant and innovative industry but despite that competition the Kia cee’d was a clear winner in the voting. For hard-pressed motorists in the North, investment in a new car has to really work hard to be justified and the Kia cee’d delivers on every front comfort, reliability, quality, value and of course peace of mind from its seven year warranty.”
The new cee’d is both longer and lower than the previous model giving the five-door hatchback a more sporty profile. It is offered in a range of ten exterior colours including five new ones. A wide choice of engines are available with a choice of manual or automatic six-speed transmissions. Depending on the version, the 1.6 GDI comes with Kia’s all-new six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), which improves fuel efficiency and delivers smooth automatic gear shifts for maximum comfort.
