Make no bones about it – the Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV is an extremely practical car. It doesn't have the very largest boot in its class, but you'll still struggle to find enough stuff to fill it and it's as versatile as you'd want it to be, with a completely flat floor and no loading lip. Up front, the car is just as spacious and comfortable as the five-door Ceed hatchback and rear-seat passengers are well catered for, too.

Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV hybrid interior space, storage & comfort

There should be no complaints about space or comfort from occupants of the Ceed Sportswagon. Up front, the driving position is quite low, the seats are nicely supportive and there's plenty of adjustment in both them and the steering column to help you find your ideal position. On the storage front, there are plenty of spaces to stash your bits and bobs, with decent door bins and a roomy glovebox, while you also get two cupholders in the cabin.

Boot space

With the rear seats in place, the Ceed Sportswagon has a well shaped and practical 437-litre boot that should be more than enough for most people's day-to-day needs. Drop the rear seats and you get a 1,506-litre luggage area with (crucially) no loading lip and a completely flat floor. That's more than can be said for the much more expensive Mercedes E-Class hybrid estate, which has a box-shaped intrusion in its boot to accommodate its batteries.

The petrol and diesel-powered Ceed Sportswagon's 1,694-litre seats-down capacity outdoes this hybrid version, and similar-sized estate cars from rival brands also offer a little more space in some cases: the Ford Focus Estate has 1,620 litres and the Peugeot 308 SW has 1,775 litres. However, neither of these is currently available as a plug-in hybrid.

Towing

The Kia Ceed Sportswagon PHEV is available with an optional tow hitch and can pull a braked trailer or caravan weighing up to 1,300kg.
