Kia Cerato Comparisons

Small hatch comparison

For all the hoo-ha about booming sales of SUVs, the so-called 'small car' segment remains the market's most popular, still accounting for almost 20 per cent of all new vehicles sold in Australia.

2018 Kia Ceed revealed for Geneva

The new-generation 2018 Kia Ceed has been revealed today, and no we haven't forgotten an apostrophe: Kia's dropped it, to the delight of grammar prescriptivists around the world. As expected, the new Ceed wears front-end styling largely identical to the 2018 Kia Cerato sedan revealed in January...

2018 Kia Cerato hatch to debut in Geneva as the Ceed, sans apostrophe

The new 2018 Kia Cerato hatch - sorry, the new Kia Ceed - has been previewed today ahead of its debut at the Geneva motor show. And, hallelujah, the new third-generation model will drop the pesky apostrophe from the name.

2018 Kia Cerato hatch spied in Cee'd form

The new-generation Kia Cerato/Cee'd hatchback has been spied during testing in Europe, ahead of a likely unveiling at the Geneva motor show in March. Despite the black and white camouflage, this vehicle is largely identical in design to the undisguised version seen in Korea last December, pretty much confirming the new Cee'd and Cerato hatchbacks will basically be one and the same...

2018 Kia Cerato takes on... a Lamborghini Aventador?

In one of the more creative marketing campaigns we've seen, Kia's North American arm has decided to pit the new Forte (2018 Cerato) against "one of the fastest, flashiest, most coveted sports cars ever", the Lamborghini Aventador. Despite the comparison being held at a race track, much of the focus is on both vehicles at a standstill - very clever indeed...

2016 Kia Cerato Koup Touring Review

I've bought my Koup Turbo Touring a little over a month ago and am just about to get the 3,000km service done. What I think so far? To be honest, I love it. I've had an eye on this car since it hit the showrooms back in 2013. Its mix of understated sportyness and style caught my eye and to be honest was a major factor in my decision to buy one...

2014 Kia Cerato Sli Nav Review

2 years in and I'm not regretting my purchase although there are annoyances that have popped up but often they're balanced out by things that just work. A while back now I wrote a review just after I bought the car. You can search the archives for that. Having reread it myself I can say that much of it still holds true...

2015 Kia Cerato S Premium Review

My Kia Cerato S Premium is incredible value for money over local and European imported competitors. Handling may not compare to the class leading brands but its a safe and reliable car with good looks which are better that most of the Japanese equivalent models.
