Kia Cerato Hatch SLi
- Vital Stats
$27,990 - $30,990
The Kia Cerato SLi ticks all the boxes. The hatch is attractive both inside and out, comes with loads
of great standard features, and has been awarded a brand new five-star ANCAP safety rating.
Style & Drive
The five-seater Kia Cerato hatch accounts for 70 per cent of all Cerato sales in Australia and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a quintessential city car – not too big and not too small, loads of leg room and comfy seats.
With its sleek lines and low stance one might easily mistake it for one of its European competitors. The 2.0L petrol engine is smooth and powerful, and driving is a pleasure thanks to the finely tuned steering.
The Cerato’s interior is beautifully finished, and comes with an impressive list of standard features. The leather-trim seats are comfortable, the driver has an eight-way adjustable seat, and both front seats are heated. The driver also scores a ventilated seat. Leg room is good in the second row which folds flat 60:40. A rear-facing car seat hardly cramps the front passenger’s leg room at all. The boot is generous and fits a full size pram lying flat.
The well designed centre stack has a six-speaker stereo system with MP3/AUX/ iPod compatibility, Bluetooth functionality, and SDVC (Speed Dependent Volume Control.) SLi also has smart key push button start, dusk-sensing headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels with a full-size spare wheel, a powered sun roof, alloy sports pedals, a cooling glove box, and dual-zone climate control air-conditioning.
With the satellite navigation option ($1000), the SLi gains a seven-inch full-colour touch screen with DVD player (video playback only works when the car is stationary).
The all-new Kia Cerato has been upgraded to a five-star ANCAP rating. It features six airbags (driver, passenger, front side and curtain). Active safety systems include an Anti-lock braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC).
The SLi features front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. The Cerato features three child restraint anchorage points on the rear seats, and ISOFIX child safety hooks on both outboard rear seats.
The 2.0L petrol SLi auto model has a fuel consumption of 7.5L/100km and CO2 emission of 180g/km
The Kia Cerato features a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty.

Describe the car in three words
Sleek, cute, grownup.
What are the best things about this car?
The Cerato is a seriously attractive hatch that’s practical too. You can fit a full size pram in the boot with a few bags of shopping too.
And the downsides?
None that we can think of.
What does it run on?
Loved it. It’s really easy to drive, smart and practical.
If personified, who would this car be?
