At the front, it shares the same design features as the new hatchback whilst the low profile outlined with its chrome-framed windows extends further than ever before. In addition, the sleek roof rails give you more freedom to carry extra cargo, should the 625 litres of boot space not suffice.
Inside, everything is designed around the driver from the seamless, horizontal layout of the instrument panel to the soft-touch surfaces emphasising a high-quality feel. Every journey starts in style and with all the comfort you could possibly wish for. The welcoming interior is fitted with black leather upholstery and includes a slidable black leather armrest for that extra feel of luxury (trim level dependant). Inside, versatility is also key, with two underfloor storage compartments to maximise your luggage area.
On cold days, the front and outer rear seats can be heated to ease the chill. The Kia Ceed Sportswagon also comes with a heated leather steering wheel, depending on which trim level you choose.
‘First Edition’ models can benefit from: a JBL premium sound system that is complete with eight speakers, an integrated memory system that remembers your favourite driving seat settings, keyless entry, a wireless smartphone charger and Smart Power Tailgate that automatically opens when you approach the rear with the Smart Key in your bag or pocket.
Its 6-speed manual transmission combines quick, smooth gear changes and gear ratios matched to engine torque curves. The result: a flawless balance between power and efficiency! Opt for the latest-generation 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) and you’re ensured an engaging drive and excellence fuel efficiency.
Drive Mode Select is available only for models with a DCT gearbox and is designed to enhance your driving experience that little bit more. DMS can be operated via a button next to the gear shift and works with DCT to increase driving dynamics by proving an improved throttle response and acceleration. Drive Mode Select also offers a better steering response and perfectly complements the 17” alloy wheels.
Other features include: the Speed Limit Information Function, Lane Following Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning, a Rear View Camera and Smart Parking Assist which uses front, side and rear sensors to help you with angled, parallel and perpendicular parking.
