The Kia Ceed car lease range has been given a range of updates to improve its popularity for the 2022 model year.
The family of Ceeds includes the five-door hatchback, as well as the five-door ProCeed shooting brake and the Ceed Sportswagon estate.
Kia has used the refresh to introduce new technologies and features, and also boost the exterior design to be more athletic.
Also, the range adds the firm’s new logo, which was introduced earlier this year, for the first time.
Contract hire Kia Ceed
The contract hire Kia Ceed starts with the well-equipped ‘2’ model.
Drivers get a choice of two engines, either a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol unit producing 118 bhp, or a 1.6-litre diesel unit producing 134 bhp.
The latter comes with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology and is only available for the hatchback version.
Standard kit includes alloy wheels, cruise control, an eight-inch touchscreen and there’s a reversing camera system and lane keeping assist.
Kia Ceed ‘3’ model
The Kia Ceed ‘3’ model has also been boosted with a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 158 bhp and has a choice of either a double-clutch, seven-speed transmission, or a six-speed manual box.
There’s also the mild-hybrid 1.6-litre diesel unit with either the automatic transmission or a manual gearbox.
Standard kit for this range includes rear privacy glass, alloy wheels, rain sensing front wipers, automatic air-conditioning and rear parking sensors.
The hatchback’s range topper is the Ceed ‘GT-Line’ which has the same powertrains but is a sporty offering.
Drivers get black alloy wheels, heated front seats and steering wheel, aluminium pedals, a smart entry system and on the automatic transmission versions, a paddle shifter.
Turbocharged petrol engines
For those interested in the ProCeed, improvements include a sportier drive with the turbocharged petrol engines.
The ProCeed GT-Line has the choice of the diesel unit in automatic or manual gearbox guise.
It’s also packed with equipment including forward collision-avoidance, driver attention warning and a 10.25-inch display with sat nav.
The ProCeed’s GT model is a high-performance offering with a powerful diesel engine with extra equipment including a twin exhaust, black leather seats, a red insert for the rear diffuser and front grille, along with 18-inch alloy wheels.
