2020 Kia Ceed: Engine, Specs, Dimensions, Redesign
2020 Kia Ceed: Engine, Specs, Dimensions, Redesign – The New generation of Kia Ceed changes its name by removing the apostrophe. Behind the simplification of its name, hides a car more modern and sophisticated, to better settle on the European market. Let’s get behind the wheel to check it.
The 2020 Kia Ceed does not really have much to do with its predecessor. In profile, some might even see a look already seen in other competitors. You are left guessing which ones. In any case, it displays a rather sober look, with a semblance of aggressiveness in the image of the front shield of our GT line version.
She even has some sports tunes. In terms of ratings, few changes. It turns out to be wider and lower but does not lie down. It remains at 4.31 m.

The foamed dash gives a good feeling of robustness, with elements firmly fixed and well adjusted. We feel pretty comfortable in all places when traveling to 4 people. 5 obviously a third passenger will not have the same opinion.

It thus contains better the movements of cases, with a roll well mastered. An operating aid with micro-braking makes it easier to turn, thus limiting understeer.

Some will find it a little firm, but rest assured, we stay away from a sporty chassis wood end making trips difficult. On the contrary, no one will complain on arrival. A good traveling companion.

To cut the road, under the hood we had a 140-horsepower 1.4 T-GDI petrol engine. Its turbo acting early, from 1500 rpm, the block gives a good feeling of nervousness to this Kia Ceed. In addition, the good soundproofing makes it not too invasive in the cockpit.
The automatic dual clutch transmission called DCT 7 accompanies it. To make life easy on board and especially in town, while constantly controlling consumption, this is a good choice. Beyond that, we sometimes pester against his lazy side during certain phases of recovery. As often in these cases, when we understand it, we anticipate.
