2019 Kia Cerato Sport Plus Review | Australia
Kia Cerato has a distinctive design and bears the imprint of family traits. The exterior is made in a concise, restrained style, without any frills. Strict appearance of the car a little "dilutes" elegant optics. Irregularly shaped headlamps and protruding front wheel arches add originality. Wide and heavily tilted rear struts, plus a small-looking trunk give the Kia Cerato a dynamic look.
In addition to the stylish body, Koreans offered customers a high-quality interior. The spacious and comfortable lounge is equipped with everything necessary for comfortable movement. The first thing that strikes the eye in the cabin - a massive two-tone front panel. And although the material from which it is made, far from the highest category, everything looks quite presentable. The same can be said about the rest of the interior details, as they say, simply, but with taste. Everything is assembled and fitted almost perfectly. Adjustments are standard: the steering wheel moves only in height, and the seat - back and forth.
The luggage compartment is quite decent size - 345 liters. Under the floor, he hides a full-size spare wheel, and on top is able to accommodate a rather bulky cargo. It is noteworthy that the rear seats can be folded by pressing the button under the trunk lid. The process of increasing the useful cargo area is simplified due to the fact that it is not necessary to climb into the cabin and recline chairs from there.
Under the hood, Kia Cerato may be several engines. These are two petrol engines of 1.6 and 2 liters and 106 and 143 liters. with. respectively, with the VVT system, the regulatory phase of the gas distribution, as well as two common-rail diesel engines with a volume of 1.5 liters (102 hp) and 2 liters (113 hp.) Diesel engines and the VVT system appeared on passenger cars for the first time.
VVT increases the efficiency of the power unit and reduces emissions. All engines are available with both five-speed manual and four-speed automatic transmissions. Drive - to the front wheels. Suspension front MacPherson, rear multilink.
The list of equipment provided for the Kia Cerato is very high. Already in the basic configuration, the car is equipped with power steering, air conditioning, ABS with EBD (electronic brake force distribution) and Brake Assist, dual airbags, audio system, central locking, front electric windows and three-point belts for all passengers.
If necessary, you can refer to a very extensive list of options. For an additional fee will be installed: on-board computer, rear power windows, electric drive, heated mirrors, climate control, side airbags, leather seats and a pair of electronic systems - BAS (emergency braking system) and TCS (motion stabilization system).
In 2007, Kia Cee’d replaced the Cerato in the back of a hatchback. Sedan also produced until 2008 inclusive. In order to preserve interest in the model in 2007, it was restyled. The updated version received new foglights, extended wheel arches and a converted front bumper with a more powerful air intake.
In 2009, an updated version of the Kia Cerato, known in Europe as the Kia Forte, was released, in Russia it retained its name. The debut of the new generation took place at the Sydney Motor Show. The car has changed so much that it connects with its predecessor only the name and attitude to the class of urban sedans.
Kia Cerato 2009 has received absolutely new stylish appearance. Designers worked on creating style under the direction of Peter Schreier. The body became wider by 4 cm (1735 mm), longer - not 3 cm (4480 mm). Due to this, the wheelbase has increased - it has become more by 4 cm and the track has become wider - by as much as 7 cm, which improved the car’s handling. However, the clearance was reduced by a centimeter, thereby reducing the height by a centimeter. This innovation has significantly improved dynamic performance. Compared with its predecessor, the rear suspension has become simpler and more maintainable: instead of an independent multi-link, it has become a double-lever semi-dependent, with an elastic beam. Front suspension - type McPherson.
The organization of internal space, thought out to the smallest detail, not only adds comfort, but also makes the interior more extensive. Interior meets two-color front panel. The steering wheel is adjustable only in height. Separately noteworthy is the sports-made tachometer, which allows you to track engine speed. In general, the cabin has almost all the systems necessary for a comfortable ride in a modern car. Standard equipment includes: tinted windows and heated rear windows, body-colored bumpers, fog lights, 4-spoke steering wheel with power steering, auxiliary brake light, central locking, front armrest, rear and front electric windows, immobilizer, audio preparation, driver's seat adjustment height adjustable frontal airbags.
Trunk Cerato 2009 is quite roomy, its volume is 415 liters.
On the Kia Cerato 2009 installed 2 gasoline engines: 1.6 liters (124 hp) and 2.0 liters (156 hp). The official speed limit is 208 km / h.

Adjustable seat belts, 6 airbags and active head restraints.

Kia Cerato is very popular among motorists in Russia and the CIS countries. The main advantages of the model can be called a stylish appearance, a wide list of options, comfort, efficiency of power units and, of course, a democratic cost.
Cerato Koup debuted at the 2009 New York Auto Show. At the heart of the two-door coupe is the base of the Cerato sedan, but with detailed analysis, it can be noted that the only common body part of these two models is the hood. Perhaps that is why the general appearance of the Koup creates the impression of a faster and faster car. This is due to the front bumper with a huge air intake, spectacular headlights, optional 17-inch wheels, a twin chrome-plated exhaust pipe and a spectacular diffuser at the stern. Design has become one of the strengths of the coupe version. In what, undoubtedly, there is a merit of chief designer Peter Schreier.
Among the technical advantages, there are: elongated doors, without characteristic window frames, stretched and embedded headlights in the front wings, LED overall lighting, a more inclined windshield and somewhat wide wings bases, which also gives Koup some sportiness.
Kia Cerato Koup is designed for the movement of five people, but it should be emphasized that 3 passengers in the back will be uncomfortable and cramped, except for the back seat can only be reached through the front passenger seat, since it is only equipped with a folding system. But the trunk compartment surprises with its volume of 358 liters.
As for the interior, the creation of the salon used top-notch high-quality materials and harmless soft plastics. Deep red-and-white instrument lighting and a slender, laconic center console got a coupe from the Cerato sedan in top performance. Sports elements are introduced - a leather-covered steering wheel with comfortable grip, metal pedals, armchairs with enhanced lateral support, a large pad on all torpedoes, very accurately imitating the texture of the skin. Chromed and carbon trim elements also convey a feeling of sportiness. All devices are equipped with LED lighting and informatively reflect information about the condition of the car. Many buttons are duplicated on the steering column. Also, in almost all versions, Cerato Koup is equipped with an MR-3 radio with USB, AUX-ports, and six powerful speakers.
The car comes in a set with petrol engines of 1.6 and 2 liters, whose power is 126 and 156 hp, respectively. The engines are combined with a five-speed manual gearbox and a four-speed automatic transmission. Motors are characterized by very moderate fuel consumption.
Great attention is paid to the safety of the car, even in the usual configuration installed 6 airbags, there are active front head restraints and much more.
Cerato Koup is one of the most stylish and vivid representatives of the Kia range.

Immediately catches the eye is a modified false radiator grille, large almond-shaped headlights (daytime running lights) and a neat streamlined bumper with the ability to accommodate fog lights and an air intake of an original shape. By reducing the overall height of the appearance of the car has become more squat and sporty. The body is distinguished by stands at an acute angle, a lot of bumps and undulating bends, raised sides and massive wheel arches, which hold rubber on iron disks 195/65 R15, 205/55 R16, or on alloy wheels 205/55 R16, 225/45 R17. The designers also worked on the rear part: now the pseudo spoiler is crowned with a boot lid - a sharp edge that improves aerodynamics and gives a complete look to the car. In general, the exterior turned out quite harmonious and elegant.
Changes in the cabin suggest that the Cerato model has reached a qualitatively new level. The amount of available equipment has increased significantly compared with the previous generation. The center console is deployed on the driver, it is extremely ergonomic and very easy to access to all control functions. For Russia, there are four configuration options - Comfort, Luxe, Prestige and Premium. Already in the basic equipment Kia Cerato 2013 has a full-time radio with voice control (MP3 CD AUX USB Bluetooth) and air conditioning.

Another Cerato feature is the proprietary FlexSteer system, with which the driver can choose one of three modes of electric booster: Comfort, Normal and Sport.
The engine range consists of the already well-known 1.6 and 2.0 liter gasoline atmospheric engines already familiar with the previous generation. They were only slightly modified: the 1.6-liter increased and received an additional 4 “horses” - now its peak power is 130 forces, which are reached at 6300 rpm, and the peak torque is 157 Nm. But the 2.0-liter engine produces 150 hp. even at first glance, and without changes, but also in dynamics (9.3 s to 100 km / h, instead of the previous 9.8), and in economy (7.2 liters per hundred km against 7.9 on the combined cycle earlier) improved its performance. A low-volume motor can be paired with both 6MKPP and 6AKPP. The two-liter unit is aggregated exclusively with 6AKPP.
