Kia Cerato 2016
Carsguide Contributing journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: There's plenty to like about the Si trim level, and the Cerato in general, with a composed drive, plenty of standard kit and one of the most comprehensive ownership programs in the business. But the problem remains, the entry-level Cerato is well-equipped, is powered but the same engine and, for $500, will arrive with the same multimedia and navigation set-up as the more expensive models.You can read the full review here.
This is what Andrew Chesterton liked most about this particular version of the Kia Cerato: Good exterior design with large interior, Great suspension tune for Australian conditions, Still that 7-year warranty
The 2016 Kia Cerato carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1200 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.
The Kia Cerato is also known as the Kia Forte in markets outside Australia.

Kia Cerato 2016 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Cerato 2016 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Kia Cerato: When will the towbar for the GT be ready?
Kia told us that the tow bar is available for all current Cerato models, except the GT. Due to late changes in the rear design of the GT it was necessary to restart the design and validation process for that car well after the other models. It is in development and it’s hoped it will be available by the first month or so of next year.
Terrible road noise in 2016 Kia Cerato
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.
My Kia Cerato speedo overstates my true speed, can it be fixed?
It’s something that bugs a lot of drivers, but unfortunately there’s not a lot that can be done about it until the lawmakers change the rule and force carmakers to be more accurate. I understand it’s not good enough, but I would suggest you go by what the GPS says.
Best car for a sales rep?
I would question the Renault if you're doing lots of kays in then country. I'm sure it would be reliable, but having it serviced when you need to could be an issue if you're away from a main city. The Kia is a good choice, so too are the Mazdas. You could add the Honda Accord, Subaru Liberty and Suzuki Kizashi to your list.
