Cerato

Overview

new cerato hatch ovThe new Cerato is the latest creation from the desk of Peter Schreyer, KIA’s legendary Chief Design Officer. From its distinctive KIA ‘Tiger Nose’ grille to its clipped rear overhang, the car looks poised and athletic, as if under starter’s orders. In profile it’s sleek and purposeful, with a sense of fluidity that’s strongly coupé. In a tired world of automotive carbon copies, the all-new KIA Cerato truly is a stand out vehicle in its segment.

Each features Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and electronic fuel injection, while their lightweight aluminium construction ensures superb fuel economy and lower emissions.

The center fascia is angled towards the driver by 9 degrees, while the distinctive wave-like motif of the dashboard completes the overall look
