Kia’s entry to the C-segment is the Cerato. Competition for this model comes in the form of the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Jetta, Toyota Corolla Altis, Peugeot 408 THP, Hyundai Elantra, and Mazda3. The Cerato is locally-assembled at Naza Kia's plant in Gurun, Kedah.

In the two variants that Naza Kia Malaysia have launched are a familiar 1.6-litre Gamma engine, and the introduction of a new 2.0-litre Nu engine. Both powerplants are equipped with Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) technology and feature electronic fuel injection.

The 1.6-litre Gamma engine is as seen before on the Kia Forte, and welcomes back the 130 PS and 156 Nm of torque at 4,850rpm. The entry-level Cerato is, of course, the more fuel-efficient and eco-friendly of the two, returning 6.8 litres per 100 kilometres.

The more powerful Nu mill is here to replace the 2.0-litre Theta II previously deployed by the Forte, and introduces slightly more power than the Theta II; a maximum power output of 152 PS and 6,500RPM and 192 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm is on tap.

Both variants of the Kia Cerato drive the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission, with paddle shifters and manual sequential shifts on the lever.

Among the key features in the Cerato are 17-inch wheels, automatic air-conditioning, keyless entry and start button, reverse camera, 6 airbags, and LED tail lamps. 

All new Kia Cerato comes with a Naza Kia Malaysia backed factory warranty that covers 5 years and unlimited mileage.

From Conti to kimchi

I bought my Kia Cerato 2.0 back in 2017 by letting go of my beloved 1st car of 6 years which was a Ford Fiesta. Up till today i still think of that car which i feel comparatively from solidness of the body and how it drives is unbeatable. When i jumped into Kia Cerato was only due to a problematic car which at that point of time frequently breaks down, and coincidently i saw this Cerato at a display in a mall. No intention of buying it as i was eyeing the civic FC for almost a year after it launched. But then the sales lady kept emphasising on the fact 'value for money' and 'what you pay for a Kia, you get alot more than offered by honda'. Generally it is true, until the point i actually went to the showroom and test drove. It hit all the right points at the time as i really wanted to replace my car which i spent so much time and money fixing. Then i decided why not i just try to apply for the loan, and see how i t goes. As few days pass by i kept thinking of the possibility of getting a new car which was a class higher than the fiesta at the time, but the benefits of having a kia over a honda civic, was it worth it? Well when i received the call that my loan was approved, the sales lady mentioned that i should consider as they are offering a 17k discount, 6k of which can be used as cashback. Heck yeah, 11k goes to downpayment and 6k goes in my pocket. It was an easy decision as at the time i was low on savings and civic requires a minimum of 4k DP and a more frequent service due to turbo. Plus im not a fan of a CVT gearbox.. DRIVING IS MY PASSION, like how people likes to sing, they have intonation from high to low. Imagine singing on one tone 'aummmmmmmm', yeah cvt. Eventhough the civic had the similar heavy car feel and doors close expensively like other conti cars, and the fiesta, but somehow it wasn't strong enough to actually go for it. I'd go for the Kia, since its got a sunroof, 2 ventilated front seats and a conventional torque converter. A worry free alternative that i never regret getting over something i dreamed of for almost a year. Oh yeah, did i mention that i bought the cerato within a month of seeing and testing? Imagine 1 year engagement to marry, and meeting somebody that 1 month and u ended up marrying someone else. I did however drove my father's ford mondeo (turbo) recently. Superb car, drives great, heavy and expensive. But when i jumped back into the Kimchi, my concern of getting stuck in a jam with a turbo engine and overheating etc2 was gone. I enjoyed the worry free, light feeling yet fully equipped car that i bought unplanned. Hoping it can be one of the cars i can finish paying and be passed down to my son, or wife. The end? For now.
