A New Cerato Is Coming

A new Cerato is coming. 

And when it arrives in local showrooms, the Cerato will have comfort levels and handling characteristics that are also expected to be boosted by the use of high-strength steel. 

According to Kia, the look of the new Cerato draws inspiration from the Stinger for “a commanding road presence” aided by the wider-set headlights and a squat stance. 

Its sedan’s long bonnet and short overhangs also give it a sportscar visage, while the front end is dominated by the large ‘tiger nose’ front grille. 

Overall, the Cerato has grown 81mm to measure 4641mm in length, while also being 18mm wider and about 13mm taller than before, which Kia says translates to increased legroom, headroom and storage capacity. 

Inside, the Cerato gains a horizontally themed dashboard that includes an 8.0-inch colour touchscreen multimedia system, circular air vents and soft-touch materials throughout. 

Comfort levels and handling characteristics are also expected to be boosted by the use of high-strength steel in the body construction to increase stiffness by up to 16 per cent. 

Last year saw sales of Kia’s Cerato jump 42.9 per cent to 18,731, enough to beat out the Holden Astra (13,535), Honda Civic (14,672) and Volkswagen Golf (18,454) for fourth place in the sub-$40,000 small car segment. 

With the release of the new-generation version, sales are expected to continue trending upward to challenge market leaders such as the Toyota Corolla, Mazda3 and Hyundai i30
