The previous Ceed GT's old-tech GDi engine struggled to produce decent efficiency readings, but this improved T-GDi unit does a little better - though its figures are still hardly stellar. Expect 38.2mpg on the combined cycle and 155g/km of CO2. Naturally, you'll claw some of that back with the healthy resale value that's virtually guaranteed by the excellent seven-year warranty. Fixed price servicing is on offer but do bear in mind that Kia quotes a 10,000 mile/1 year service interval for this car. As usual with a Kia, you can budget ahead with pre-paid servicing plans, courtesy of the brand's 'Care-3' package that offers a fixed price deal covering your first three garage visits, a package that can be extended to include five visits if you go for the upgraded 'Care-3 Plus' option. In addition, a customer can now purchase services up to and including the seventh one, so matching the full length of the warranty.
An even stronger buying incentive is much-trumpeted 7 year / 100,000 warranty which, like the 'Care-3' servicing packages, is transferrable to future owners. However, it is worth pointing out that the warranty only offers unlimited mileage for the first three years you own the car; thereafter, you'll have a 100,000 mileage restriction.
