The new cee’d Sportswagon has a more sporty and premium look and feel than its predecessor
The new Kia cee’d Sportswagon is now on sale with prices starting at £16,895 and rising to £24,795. The new cee’d Sportswagon has a more sporty and premium look and feel than its predecessor. It has a more cab-forward design and a rakish, coupé-like roofline which gives it a sportier stance and greater presence.
The entry-level 89bhp 1.4 CRDi engine develops 220Nm of torque from just 1500rpm, while the 126bhp 1.6 CRDi raises the torque output to 260Nm from only 1900rpm. Both transmissions, including the automatic offered with the 1.6-litre engine, are six-speed units, while manual-gearbox models are fitted with Kia’s Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG) fuel-saving, emissions-reducing engine stop/start technology.
The new Kia cee’d Sportswagon is available in four trim grades named ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘4’ in the now-customary Kia UK fashion with the option of a ‘4 Tech’ version of the cee’d Sportswagon ‘4’.
All models from the ‘1’ feature a comprehensive list of standard equipment, including luggage area under-floor tray and side tray, a retractable and removable load cover, a boot light and a rear 12-volt power socket and roof rails. Other standard features include electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment and a height-adjustable driver’s seat, air conditioning, steering wheel-mounted controls, front electric windows with auto up and down function, daytime running lights, remote central locking, cooled glovebox, flat-folding 60:40 split rear seats, ambient front lighting, an iPod-compatible audio system with radio and CD player, USB port and Bluetooth connectivity, ESC and VSM, HAC (Hill-start Assist Control), six airbags, speed-sensitive auto door locking and alloy wheels on all 1.6-litre versions.
