Kia Cerato sedan: An impressive range of small cars

I spoke a few weeks back about Kia’s new 2.0-litre Cerato S automatic sedan.

I’ve just driven the better specified Cerato Sport sedan and top-line Sport Plus, both of which reinforced my view that this is one of the smart buys in the small car market at present.

My niece, who bought one on my recommendation, is delighted with her purchase – in short a polished roomy small sedan, very well sorted for our road conditions with a 7-year/unlimited kilometre warranty.

Sure the engine is no world breather, but it does a workmanlike job in a car that is very safe with a high percentage of high–strength steel. And it happily runs on regular 91 RON petrol just so important at the moment with our higher fuel prices.

Over the entry Kia Cerato S the 2.0-litre automatic Sport variant at 25,790 adds better quality sports cloth trim, satellite navigation and a number of small convenience features.

Overall, a very good looking small sedan. Kia has really done a great job on styling this small sedan, it looks polished and a cut above its station.

The sedan will be joined by a new hatch towards year end. At the same time, the Cerato sedan and hatch will gain a potent GT variant with 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine linked to either a seven-speed dual clutch automatic or six-speed manual.

Kia continue to bring to market impressive models that excel in style and drive-ability with the benefit of a seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty providing their owner with peace of mind motoring.
