I’d have thought Kia’s Sportage or Rio would be its top seller here but no, it’s the Cerato small car in sedan and hatch that tops the sales charts.

It’s because Cerato offers great value for money especially the test drive entry level S model with six speed auto selling for an incredible $19,990 drive away.

Add the optional $500 audio visual package with reverse camera along with Apple/Android streaming and Bob’s your uncle. But there’s a new generation Cerato around the corner with the sedan here mid year and the hatch towards the end of 2018.

Get in quick for a bargain.


Recently restyled, current shape Kia Cerato has been with us for quite a while but still looks good particularly around the frontal area with its trademark tiger nose grille and ‘predatory bird’ headlights.

The hatch has attractive lines from every angle and is a neat design but is a little too derivative of many other cars in the class.

Who was first?

Who knows, who cares, Cerato won’t cause you any aesthetic angst that’s for sure.
