2019 Kia Cerato Sport+ review

It may not be the most flashy or exciting mode of transport, the Kia Cerato Sport+ is a spacious, comfortable, and fuss-free option in the ever-competitive small car segment, bolstered by its ripper value-for-money equation thanks to its high level of standard equipment and market-leading customer care program.

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.
