Our Ceed wagon has recently been carrying a variety of loads within its sombre, black-carpeted boot.

However, the rear passenger-cum-stowage area format lacks imagination, with the squabs neither flipping nor folding, while the tailgate is fiddly to open and needs a hefty slam to close.

Design flexibility arguably has been diverted to its newer seven-seater Carens MPV stablemate. In mitigation, our SW has six handy under-floor stowage compartments including a central portable tray with handles for odds and ends.


  • Capable dual-role load lugger
  • Rear layout lacks flexibility
