The interior options list has had a similar refresh, with four new upholstery finishes. Higher-spec cars get a 12.3in digital instrument cluster and a 10.25in infotainment touchscreen, each with high-resolution graphics.
The most significant changes have been made to the Ceed’s suite of safety systems. The blindspot warning system can now steer away from a crash if it detects that a collision is imminent, and the rear cross-traffic alert system can now step in with emergency braking if required.
The driver awareness warning has been improved with a visual cue on the Ceed’s screen, alerting drivers when the car ahead has moved off from a set of lights, and a safe-exit warning system can alert users to approaching traffic when they open the door.

The engine line-up is unchanged, with the 1.5-litre T-GDi engine having replaced the old 1.4-litre unit earlier this year. It can be paired with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and produces 158bhp.
