Hi my name is Kieren Olney and I am one of the new car sales consultants here at Toowong Kia. I have the pleasure of driving a large range of cars in my time in the automotive sector and would to share my thoughts with you on the Kia Cerato SLi.
The Cerato has undergone a radical transformation from the previous model, with an amazing European style thanks to the ex-Audi designer Peter Schreyer makes this car stand out from the rest. The Cerato SLi house a 2.0L GDi engine that produces 129Kw of power and 209Nm of torque while using less fuel but still produces more power than the previous Cerato. The ride and handling have been improved with the addition of electric power steering that allows you to select different drive modes from a comfortable feel which is ideal for city driving or parking lots, to a sportier feel which is great for highway driving. The Cerato has loads of safety features from the brake assist system, hill start assist control, Emergency Stop Signal as well as Front and Rear parking sensors and a reversing camera which helps to see and avoid any potential accidents. The Cerato has a certain appeal especially with the addition of the SLi’s 17” Sporty Alloys.
The interior of the Cerato feels luxurious and sporty with the optional Satellite Navigation system with live traffic updates that will offer you directions around the incident and estimate delay time. The humidity sensor attached to the inside of the windscreen prevents the windscreen from fogging up.
The comfort of the driver and passengers haven’t gone unchecked with the comfortable seats and the addition of the driver’s seat being heated and cooled. A great feature of memory 8 way powered driver’s seat is a must for multiply drives, as the car will store your seating position and at a press of a button will revert back your position. Bluetooth connectivity with media streaming so there is no longer a need to touch your phone while driving. The attention to detail in the Cerato is just amazing, soft touch surfaces, the styling and the feel of the interior of the car even in the rear seats makes the car feel well thought out and complete.
All the features and styling you would expect from a high end luxury sedan can be found in the Cerato SLi. With the addition of every car being tuned to Australian conditions makes it a comfortable and Sporty ride with an amazing price tag to compete and or beat all cars in the Cerato’s category.
