Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

PROS
Unmistakeable looks,
great comfort,
agreeable electric version

CONS
You can't get a quick one.
But it wouldn't work anyway

By: 
topgear.com

The Citroën C4 is very temptingly priced for a coupé SUV, while comfort and refinement also impress. You do pay for its cushiness with roly-poly handling, though, and there are more practical options.

PROS
Comfortable ride
Little wind or road noise
Well priced

CONS
Body lean in bends
Boot is on the small side
No alarm on entry-level model

By: 
whatcar.com

PROS
Ride comfort and general quietness
Eager and efficient engines
Spacious, minimalist interior

CONS
Go elsewhere if you want sportiness
No hybrid models available
Divisive styling won't universally appeal

By: 
parkers.co.uk

The Kia XCeed has a higher ride height, a range of cheap-to-run engines and lots of kit as standard. There are more comfortable SUVs with better rear space, though.

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Good range of engines
Well equipped as standard

Cons
Bumpy in town
So-so digital dials
Limited back-seat space

By: 
carwow.co.uk

On the styling front, Kia has done a fairly good job.Despite what the cladding may suggest, the XCeed is still front-wheel drive only. it’s a Ceed hatch that has been raised by 44mm to create an almost-crossover. We say almost, because Kia already sells the Sportage as a crossover and the Sorento as a full-size SUV.

Pros
Better looking than a Merc GLA and comparatively much cheaper

Cons
Do you really need a coupé-ified crossover hatchback on stilts?

By: 
topgear.com

If the design, ergonomics and credible dynamics of the most recent Ceed demonstrate that Kia should now be considered alongside any other European maker of mass-market hatchbacks, then the Xceed is the derivative perfectly tailored to the current tastes of European buyers.

Pros
More satisfying to drive than the class average, with good steering
Attractive appearance gives the Xceed a good measure of personality

Cons
Low-speed ride exhibits hard edges, despite the raised ride height
Expensive compared with some rival cars
