This modification of the SIDA — with atmospheric 1.6 engine and automatic gearbox — promises to be the most popular among Russian buyers. The car appeared in the editorial recently, but already I have her to praise and to criticize.Alexander Vinogradov “Behind the wheel”
Kia Ceed Ceed 2019Kia 2019
In drafting the Park “Behind the wheel” registered novice — Kia Ceed new generation. The car will be in our newsroom six months. Which, of course, he survives a lot of interesting things. But more on that later, but first impressions. For long tests we took a hatchback with a 128-horsepower 1.6-liter aspirated and classical 6-speed automatic. Are confident that this combination will be the most popular in Russia.
Our white hatchback sports a maximum for this engine, Prestige package, which includes the heating of everything, including steering wheel and rear seats, and rain sensors and lights, rear view camera with dynamic markings, led running lights, combined seat upholstery, alloy wheels, multimedia system with the ability to connect the smartphone using Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Easier to list those options that in our car is the panoramic roof, the top multimedia with navigation and a set of electronic assistants in the movement. All these Goodies are only available to those who choose a car with a 1.4-liter turbo engine and a version of robot Premium+. This machine will cost 1.5 million rubles. Our copy is much cheaper — 1 199 000 rubles.
Ergonomics calculated thoroughly. But if you try, you can find something to complain about. I have a questions to the workplace of the driver and build quality.Ergonomics calculated thoroughly.

At the time I was choosing what car to buy for personal use. And the choice was between a led (just previous generation) and the third Focus. However, it was about the wagon. And despite the many virtues of a Kia, this car did not come to me for several reasons: not enough energy-intensive suspension and flaws in the handling — I wanted to get a car, freed from the necessity to steer on a straight line with more transparent feedback on the steering wheel. Not to say that the previous generation Ceed very bad driving. But everything is relative. Ford part performance was better. But sooner or later my favorite universal will need to change, and maybe I’ll pay attention to Kia.
Tools of the Kia for me has long been a benchmark of simplicity and elegance. Readability of the instrument — great!Tools of the Kia for me has long been a benchmark of simplicity and elegance. Readability of the instrument — great!

Koreans like no love and know how to learn. And machine learning together with them. New Ceed, I liked that. The car of this generation really taught good manners. Appeared as straight line stability. The car is more precise to follow the trajectory in the rotation, providing the wheel a pleasant and timely weight. No more spurious oscillations of the body with a sharp change of the strip. But there is a calibrated effort on the steering wheel and clear feedback. To register turns on the current side nice, what I want to be driving in winding roads. Besides, the car has excellent ergonomics.
In the short time spent behind the wheel of a new Sid, I managed to find only two drawbacks. Lower landing with an appropriate position of the steering wheel to its rim overlaps the turn indicators. And the driver seat cushion contoured imperfect, and after a while my hips start to go numb. In my case it happened after a four-hour trip.
In contrast to the version with a turbo engine and robot, which we had in the comparison test, atmospheric Ceed does not possess the dynamics of acceleration. But this difference is noticeable only during the threshold acceleration. Question regarding the traction control, the car with a gun I liked a lot more Sid W automated manual. Yes, 6-speed hydromechanics does not spoil the rate of fire, but against the robot she pleases predictability of switches. For a comfortable and confident moving in heavy traffic a bunch of motor-box works great. And if you want to go active, that is, sportregion. He significantly adds responsiveness of the accelerator pedal. In this machine rather switch both up and down.
Well, until the new Kia Ceed I like. Let’s see how he will take six months in edition.
