Kia Cerato 2017

The 2017 Kia Cerato range of configurations is currently priced from $11,600. Our most recent review of the 2017 Kia Cerato resulted in a score of 7.1 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: Kia's Cerato Sport is a handsome and feature-packed offering that's a genuine pleasure to pilot. The interior is less than inspiring, and it's lacking some key standard safety equipment, but it still adds up to a very convincing package at its price point.

This is what Andrew Chesterton liked most about this particular version of the Kia Cerato: Handsome exterior, Terrific ride on Aussie roads, Well-equipped as standard

The 2017 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 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Cerato 2017 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What car should I buy for my mum?

    If you’re happy with the Kia, Marissa, then I’d say you might be wise to stick with the brand you know. As you would know, your 2017 model Cerato still has at least three or maybe even four years of factory warranty to run. That’s great peace of mind and one of the reasons people keep buying Kias. You’re also a chance to do a better deal as a repeat buyer at your local dealership.

    While not wishing to suggest that being 60 years of age makes somebody an `older person’ these days, the one design feature you might want to consider going forward is the option of a vehicle with a slightly higher ride height. That makes getting in and out of the car easier and the whole day-to-day experience just that little bit nicer. With that in mind, take a look at the

    . It’s not the newest of designs, but it does represent a solid, reliable platform. On the bass that your mother does mainly suburban driving, the pick would be the Si front-wheel-drive version with the petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission.

    It should be covered under Kia’s warranty, so take it back to your dealer and have it fixed.

  • Has there been any recalls for the 2017 Kia Cerato?

    The Kia Cerato is not affected by the Takata airbag recall. I can’t say why your VIN number was rejected. Contact Kia to check.

  • Volkswagen Golf 2014: Golf vs Cerato

    You’re right to be wary of the Golf, but apart from the well publicised stories of trouble with the DSG gearbox a few years ago it has been in more recent times a sound vehicle. We get very few complaints from owners of these later cars, so I wouldn’t be concerned about buying one. The Cerato is also a fine car and would be a good choice. If I were forced to choose I would probably gamble on the Golf for its driving dynamics.
