Ateco attacks with Cerato

Cerato zing: The Kia Cerato will be powered by a 103kW 2.0-litre engine.

A high level of specification is expected on Kia's Cerato sedan

1 Jun 2004

KIA importer Ateco Automotive will release the Cerato sedan in Australia on July 1.

Cerato will replace the Spectra small car sold here until late last year at $18,990.

Ateco will not confirm if the 4.3-metre Cerato sedan (which will bridge the gap between Rio and Optima and may be followed a five-door hatch) will match that price point.

But it says a high level of standard specification – including a 103kW 2.0-litre engine, the choice of manual/auto transmission, power windows, central locking, CD player and air-conditioning – will make it competitive with small car class leaders like the just launched facelifted $19,990 Corolla.
