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. I only drive European cars but was forced to use this model as a company city commuter...

2013 Kia Sportage Platinum (AWD) Review

Bought the Kia Sportage platinum diesel and have now had 2 years of trouble free motoring. Wanted something else other than a sedan but didnt want a big SUV so settled on the Sportage. Had a towbar fitted to take my bikeracks as I do a fair amount of mountain biking. Needed something spacious and with good ground ckearance to get to some out of the way places...

2015 Kia Cerato Sli Review

I have the Sedan version of the SLi which is a few centimeters longer than the hatch, and cuts a much better looking profile. SIZE I found for those not wanting or needing a full size sedan, the Cerato is Perfect. It is bigger on the inside that it appears. Big enough for our needs of city and country driving which we each day and for fitting a 'Walker' in the boot on weekends...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT Review

Silly name? Check. Manual transmission? Check. Non-prestige badge? Check. Impractical number of doors? Check. And yup, 6 months into owning one, I'm glad I got one. Yes, as I'd commented elsewhere in an earlier review by a fellow owner, it wasn't the sharpest drive I'd tried (that would have been the Focus ST…ah yes…ST..

2013 Kia Cerato Koup Turbo Review

I've had my Koup turbo auto for 10 months now. I drive it quite hard and it seems to like it. The engine has diesel like low rev torque so it doesn't need a lot of encouragement to get going. I drove the great ocean road and otto ways as fast as I dared and found it to have great balance - not under or over steering under brakes or throttle...

2015 Kia Rondo Si Review

I have a Kia Rondo as my company vehicle. The Rondo ticks many boxes but in my opinion is let down by 3 things. Firstly the dead steering. Albeit light and 3 mode adjustable it has no recoil at all, I am forever steering stewing into junctions and steering out again, it simply has no ability to self centre. Secondly the diesel I have been driving has throttle lag...

2014 Kia Sorento Platinum (4x4) Review

Background As our family grew, we were looking for a practical seven-seater towards the end of last year (2014). Living in a regional area, with occasional dirt trails, we were looking for a SUV, but not a true offroader with truck-like dynamics. We test drove the Ford Territory, Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX9, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, and Toyota Kluger...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-tech Review

When I was in the market for a sports Car I was also keeping in mind that I wanted something that was not just sporty and eye catching but also practical, economical, reliable and value for money. Just as I was enquiring about the Kia Ceed Gt tech My15 now with the Sat Nav also came along the new 7 year warranty...

2011 Kia Sportage Sli (AWD) Review

i purchased this in August 2011 as a replacement for my 2006 Ford Focus. (great to drive, but too hard to live with). i needed something with better ground clearance than the Focus, as our road generally floods a little after a good downpour. (the focus sucks up the water due to poor placement of the air intake in the front bumper)...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-tech Review

I had done my thorough research on the Kia Ceed Gt Tech before purchasing this Car. That was in late October last year when the first MY 15 model arrived with the Satellite Navigation system. All I can say that i love this Car. It handles superbly with more than adequate power along with loads of nice appointments. Sure there ar few little things but all Cars have those...
