Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

T-Cross offers just enough over a Polo to make it worth thinking about.

Pros
Spacious and agreeable to drive
Different to a Polo,
Refined enough

Cons
Less refined and more expensive than the car it’s based on.
Low quality interior

By: 
topgear.com

The VW T-Cross is a compact yet roomy SUV which comes with loads of standard equipment. It doesn’t look as dramatic or feel quite as comfortable as some alternatives.

Pros
Big boot
Lots of passenger space
Loads of standard equipment

Cons
Noisy at speed
Materials feel a bit cheap
Alternatives look more exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The Volkswagen T-Cross is one of the class leaders in the small SUV sector.

PROS

Spacious
Well-equipped
Desirable badge

CONS

Expensive top models
Quicker rivals
No hybrid model
