Great little car that is fuel efficient and has all the bells and whistles I’d want
Apart from buying it second new and later finding it smelling of smoke, the cerato has been great in terms of fuel efficiency and reliability. Also looks great. Kids call it the ‘shark car’ because it’s the same colour as a dark blue shark : )
Best car I have had,Certainly Power to Surprise!
Best car I have ever owned, and I have had a lot even company cars, enough power for what I need having had V8's & 6 cylinders cars before hand Build quality is excellent. Just did the longest drive in it comfortable as,nearly 800 kms on one tank!,part city/country.

Love this car except ....
I have a 2019 Cerato hatch..love it..
However when raising the wipers to clean the windows I noticed that the wiper scraped the bonnet..I thought this must have been a design fault, as did my friend who also has a Cerato hatch.
When I had it in for its 15000 service I enquired about it and they told me what I had to do..I have since found the instructions in the manual ( bloody cumbersome thing)
It’s a stupid procedure and not as straightforward as it seems, however after much practice I have it mastered.
When I approached Kia about this the sc...

Sporty look, sleek comfort, great speed!

Driving this car is a breeze and parking even easier. Smooth, reverse camera. Front and rear sensors. Emergency automatic breaking for safety. Very comfy lush feeling Seats. Flashy interior. Ability to adjust seats and stearing so it fits me to a T. Especially love the safety feature If I drift off to the side it automatically pulls the car back. Very impressive features including large screen m...obile connected smart features. Voice activated. All the mod tech features and safety extras you could ever want, with smooth speedy take off.

Great little car
Bought it new and have not turned back! You get a lot of bang for buck with this little car, and it feels a lot more expensive then it actually was, almost like a German car feel to it. Very happy.
2017 Cerato Sport Hatchback
Use the car everyday- Brisbane traffic and Westfield car parks. Amazing mileage value, So much room! My pram and baby seat fits comfortably with room to spare for luggage on our family trips 500km south. Apple car play is next level! Effortless driving and a pleasure to be in- even my husband enjoys driving it around.
Have had my car for 3 years and I love it
I have had my car for 3 years and I would highly recommend a Kia Cerato to anyone. I generally use it for day to day city driving but occasionally use it to do long country drives to interstate location and it never skips a beat. Having a 7 year warranty gives me so much peace of min I will definitely purchase another Kia

It feels like I’m driving a German car
I got a 2019 cerato S with safety pack in Horizon blue and it just feels great to drive. Great boot size for a family, spacious interior, super comfortable. I had a 6.5ft mate sitting at the back who couldn’t believe how much room leg he had... Really feels like a premium car with a European feel like any AUDI or Mercedes that I have driven. The interior is just fantastic full of feature, the steering feels great too, that’s steering wheel has one of the best feel out of any car I have driven. It is a comfortable and solid drive. The engine de...livers and is reliable and smooth, sure it can get a little loud if you out in on sports and floor it... but really why would you want to do that with this car? If you want sporty drive you should go for the GT, but for me I much rather have a comfortable drive for city and highway driving... if I wanted sport I would have gone for the Stinger... for $24K this is just amazing value and has the kind of feature that were only available in premium cars just a couple years ago. 7 years warranty, 7 years cap servicing and 7 year road assist also shows that the company will take care if you if something goes wrong. Some people out there may be under the impression that KIA make cheap cars of average quality.. let me tell you this feel very different. This is a premium car with a price tag that is just unbeatable.
Probably will go down as the best car I've ever owned
We bought a steel grey Cerato GT Hatch on June 30th 2019.
Paid $31,500 with factory floor mats included.
So now we have 3000kms on the clock here's my likes.
Love all the electronic safety gear.
Autonomous cruise is awesome and the two seat memories too.
We love the interior, the phone charger and the keyless entry are nice.
The engine is great, we use it in automatic drive mode so the car chooses the driving mode according to your driving style.
Currently the fuel economy (accumulated) is 6.9 L per 100 kms.
The road noise on particular road surfaces is louder than our Dmax....

"The Power To Surprise"
Late in May I bought a new Kia Cerato GT sedan for my wife, taking advantage of the EOFY sales and to replace her aging 2007 Honda Accord Euro Luxury. The Cerato was so impressive, in every way, that I replaced my 2011 Hyundai i45
with a new Optima GT which is equally impressive, if not more so. All up, we saved about $11,000 with the drive away offers and couldn't be happier with the new cars. We use the cars on a daily basis and haven't had either serviced as yet, but this is capped for the length of the seven year warrantee which includes unlimited kilometres.
I bought my cerato in April this year so have had a few months to evaluate it. On a value for money basis it's hard to pass up. Loads of safety features, front and rear parking sensors,reversing camera, lane keep assist,forward collision avoidance and an excellent sat nav system. It's great to drive and handles really well. Not the most powerful in it's class but four drive modes help. Highly recommended.
The Little car the goes and goes..
After driving this car for the last month, My favorite aspects are the comfort and leg room.It is a smooth drive and I really enjoy how quiet it is unless want the little bit of grunt and witch to sport mode..A great little car that has all the mod cons.
Economical easy to drive haven’t had any issues in 2 yrs of purchasing the vehicle
Lease the vehicle
For work purposes
When the vehicle is due for service it gets done ASAP
Yes last service I was informed the left shocker was faulty so fixed 2 weeks later
Purchased in April 2017 at Old spot motors.
Great car, great price
Bought the new 2019 model hatch and am so pleased with it I’m now buying the GT version of the car. My only gripe is that there’s a bit too much engine noise when one puts their foot down

Reliable car. Cheap to run
My husband bought as a family car in 2015 (car was less than 3 years old and had done about 25kms). Such a good car, no issues whatsoever. My husband loves it. It’s a reliable car, very basic (it doesn’t have reverse camera or many features) but we haven’t had to spend much on it.
Purchased in March 2015 for $10,000.00.
DIASAPPOINTING RELIABILITY AND SERVICE
We have been very disappointed with the service of and reliability of our 2014 Kia Cerato despite being bought from and serviced by the same local agent from new.
So far we have had:
1) Loose front strut, coincidentally after a wheel alignment was carried out, although the dealer said it was not a result of the alignment.
2) Gearbox leak after the same service, which took three visits to cure. We were finally told it was due to corroded stainless steel pipes. If stainless had can they corrode?
3) Rattle and resonance from the rear. Rear exhaus...

Reliable, comfortable bargain
Bought a 3.5 year old auto in mid 2018 for $10,800. It still had 3.5 years of warranty. It's been perfect: drives well, adequate power, no mechanical issues. Fuel efficiency good not excellent. Really good value for money. We have the hatch and the ability to fold down 1, 2 or 3 seats is great for transporting stuff. This car is small but spacious, with leg room more than adequate for rear occupants.

124K and Big End Bearing Failed
Kia Cerato Koup TD MY11 brought at 58000km
Used as a commuter/daily been a great car and a joy to drive, serviced regularly due to being used as a daily commuter to work.
Firstly the seats soo comfortable, plenty of room for 4 tall adults head room including, ergonomically nothing is out of reach, steering is sharp and on point, best to fit a sportier tyre (they sure do make a difference) vision is great but the passenger side pillar is a bit of a blind spot, aircon falls short due to lack of air flow especially on Australias 40+ days
