2019 Kia Cerato S manual review


Bumpy surfaces pose little problem to overall composure. Urban annoyances like spoon drains and train lines barely ruffle occupants, but the Cerato can still string a succession of bends together fairly easily.

Wind and engine noise are all well suppressed. Work the engine hard and it can become vocal, but no worse than other cars in its class. Tyre noise spoils the ambience on most road surfaces, and rear passengers will tend to notice that the most.

As a runabout, though, the Cerato does a great job of being unobtrusive. Easy to park, safe, with a nice, solid feel from behind the wheel, it ticks all the boxes as a user-friendly first car for your drivers or a budget-conscious second car for families.

Alongside AEB and lane-keeping assist, the Cerato S also comes with traction and stability control, hill-start assist, rear-view camera, front seatbelt pretensioners, six airbags, dusk-sensing headlights, three child seat top-tether mounts and two ISOFIX points.
