Reliability & safety Rating

4.0 out of 5

If you're the sort of person who hates unexpected bills, Kia's seven-year/100,000-mile warranty should suit you down to the ground. It's backed up with a solid performance by the brand in our most recent Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, so despite the Ceed undergoing significant changes, buying one is unlikely to be a big risk.

Kia Ceed Sportswagon reliability

Kia came second out of 30 manufacturers in our 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, ahead of customer favourite Skoda. Of all the Kia customers who responded, 13.3% told us their model had at least one fault within the first year of ownership. While the Ceed Sportswagon wasn’t featured in our top 75 cars, the mechanically similar Ceed hatchback finished in 18th place, with owners praising its looks, practicality and infotainment.

Safety

While Euro NCAP hasn't released crash-test ratings for the Ceed Sportswagon, the independent body has tested the Ceed hatchback. It scored four stars as standard, or the full five stars if you opt for the safety package. It features more safety equipment than ever, including lane-keeping assistance, automatic headlights and autonomous emergency braking fitted as standard.
