Car reviews - Kia - Cerato - S sedan
Kia does very well on a budget with its feature-packed but boring Cerato S sedan
14 Aug 2018
THE Cerato small car has long been the backbone of Kia Motors Australia’s (KMAu) success. It currently accounts for about a third of Kia’s sales in 2018, which is no small margin for a company that is on track to leapfrog GM Holden for sixth position on the best-sellers ladder.
So it goes without saying that the new fourth-generation Cerato is a key model for the brand. Kia has so far launched the four-door sedan, while the new-gen five-door hatchback will arrive before then end of the year.
