Kia has topped off its range of Ceed hatchbacks and estate cars with flagship level 4 trim specification models priced at £19,195 and £20,345 respectively for six-speed manual versions.

The trim upgrade, incorporating leather interior, heated front seats, cruise control, integrated sat-nav and reversing camera, is combined with an increase to 126 hp for the1.6-litre diesel engine, which has a 119g/km CO2 rating and a 62.8mpg figure.

The Ceed SW or estate, which up until the end of September was the UK’s fifth best selling lower medium estate car, has standard audible reversing parking sensors to supplement the rear view camera. Trim levels 1, 2 and 3 models are fitted with the 113hp version of the 1.6-litre diesel powerplant.
