SUVs are a great purchase option for those who highly value space on board in a car and its practicality. However, they are more expensive, their maintenance is more expensive and dynamically, they are inferior to a car. If what we want is a spacious, practical, efficient and dynamic car, the family member of a lifetime is still the best option on the market. And if, in addition, we want to save, this well-equipped compact family car, and with a gigantic trunk of 625 litersit continues to be one of the best purchases we can make this 2022.
There isn’t much left until the end of the year, but we still have time to take home a KIA Ceed Tourer for only 18,961 euros. This price is lower than the one that appears on the KIA website, and refers to the additional offer that a customer will receive at any dealership of the brand – as we have been informed from KIA Spain. The car we will take home is the Ceed Tourer, equipped with a 1.0 T-GDi turbo petrol engine. A 120 hp three-cylinder engine, associated with a six-speed manual gearbox.
It has a well finished interior, built with quality and impeccable ergonomics. There are hardly any faults to put on it.
With a 0 to 100 km/h of 11.4 seconds and 172 Nm of torque, it is not a marvel of benefits, but it is more than enough for urban or extra-urban use. Its main attraction, however, is an approved consumption of a very correct 5.3 l/100 km. this mechanics lacks hybridization – unlike the 136 CV diesel or the 160 CV gasoline – and therefore cannot boast the DGT ECO label. In return, the hybrid system does not steal cargo space and can offer us a maximum trunk volume of 625 liters.
This trunk is bigger than that of a Toyota Corolla Touring Sports or the trunk of a Renault Mégane Tourer – if we want a bigger trunk, we already have to go to a Skoda Octavia Combi. The offer of 18,961 euros refers to an entry-level Concept version. It is a more equipped version than it might seem: it has 16-inch wheels, manual climate control, cruise control or driving assistance such as lane departure warning or automatic emergency braking.
It lacks hybridization and its infotainment equipment is poor: its two big buts.
However, it must be recognized that lacks good infotainment equipment: This basic version has a 5″ multifunction screen, compatible only with digital radio, and has Bluetooth hands-free. Yes, you will miss Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In return, we value the final bill to the maximum. However , achieving the price of 18,961 euros requires financing the purchase vehicle. At this time, the KIA website does not detail the economic and financial conditions of the purchase.
