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.

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
Purchased in February 2015.
+PRICE 31, 990 IS AMAZING
+Extremely spacious considering physical exterior size.
-Noise is fake and could still be a bit louder...-Not my favorite exterior but still nice -I want to be able to use sport mode even without going into sequential mode. -Rear seating area could be improved (air con is weak, no charging ports, rear doors are all hard plastic) -I think Kia could still get more HP and torque out of the engine. All the -'s are little niggles that I REALLY do not care about. We do about 10-15k a year, mainly short to medium commute's with the odd long distance commutes. To prove reliability, every single problem we have with the car I will update the review to include. But I doubt I should have that much trouble, seems well made and quality is good so reliability will hopefully good. If you want a bit more oomph and something a little special and with a huge feature's list and just generally being a very good car all round for the price please consider this, especially over it's competitors that I have seen, test-driven.

Best value for your money
I paid 27k aud for sports plus safety pack.. I believe it's best value of money as it got fully loaded features like lane change control, steering assist , hill start assist, blind spot monitoring, forward and backward park assist , leather seats, air bags, navigator, posh steering controls, cruise control, 3 drive modes and much more to offer..

Kia Cerato S Hatch 1.8ltr
What a fantastic car, 6 speed auto and has grunt. Much better then a corolla for the price I saved $4k ! and is a better car for same age comparison. I do around 55,000k's per year and has now 142,000k's being 3 years old. It has never skipped a beat and is becoming better each day with age. the cost of servcing vs my horrific VW that cost me about $7k a year on constant issues the service centres are horrible all on own terms such as wait months for a booking ( $80.00 ) for them to look at it then another booking to fix. I cannot recommend Bri...an Hilton Kia enough. I will certainly be purchasing another Kia soon. No head unit issues and to be honest those with 2.0 who reported issues ( for the money you saved from other cars in category go buy a mad unit head ) and still save so much your ahead no matter what.
Great value for money
I’ve had my Kia Cerrado for 14 months and with a driveaway price of just under $21,000 which included a reversing camera and a software upgrade to having GPS, the value is outstanding. I’ve driven around town, on country roads and 1200 km round trip‘s and not only is it economical, the handling is beautiful. I have the hatch which has a very generous boot. It’s one of the best cars i’ve ever owned in my 40+ years of driving.
Purchased in August 2016 at Mike Blewitt Kia Coffs Harbour for $20,900.00.
Raptured Air Conditioner Hose.
2017 Kia Cerato Auto Hatch with AV pack. Had it for 2 years and just done 45000km service. Last week as i was driving on the freeway i heard a loud noise then i saw lots of white smoke coming from under the bonnet. I quickly pulled over and opened the bonnet and i found that the Air conditioning hose was cut by the engine belt and there is a cut on the hose as a result all the coolant have escaped from the system. Later that day i had no choice but to drive from Sydney to Kempsey in 38 degree heat without aircon. Upon close inspection by my me...chanic this is clearly a design fault as you can see that the hose is just about 30-40mm away from the belt and it is not very secured at all! Car has been booked for inspection by local kia dealer so lets see how their 7 years warranty work out. Conclusion, yes this is a well equipped car for the price and yes it drive and handles really good but clearly they didn't put much resources into engineering. My other car is a 2005 Mazda 6 with 140000km and nothing is wrong with the car at all for the past 5 year since i bought it second hand.
Great Car love it but...
Car drives beautifully, most comfortable by far but .... the drivers visor obstructs the full view of my rear vision mirror. It's annoying that most times I can't see if the visor is down to shade the sun from obstructing my view but either way my full vision is obstructed.
Purchased in October 2015 for $25,000.00.
