Terrible road noise in 2016 Kia Cerato

Ever since I bought my 2016 Kia Cerato I have had terrible road noise on coarse bitumen roads. It got so bad you have to raise your voice to the person sitting next to you. Also, the suspension is too solid; I even had to buy a cushion to soften out the bumps. I bought the latest Michelin Prima tyres, but they were worse than the ones that were fitted.

Tyres are the usual cause of high road noise, it’s usually worse in a hatch than a sedan. If changing tyres didn’t help, you could try using noise insulation material on the inside, on the floor and on the inner guard.
