Kia Cerato 2019

The 2019 Kia Cerato range of configurations is currently priced from $18,490. Our most recent review of the 2019 Kia Cerato resulted in a score of 7.9 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributor Dan Pugh had this to say at the time: The Cerato GT sedan is a good looking car that offers an entertaining drive that might even give the odd hot hatch a run for its money. It scores well on the value for money equation, but given its firm ride it might not make a great choice as a family taxi. However, if you are in the market for a small sporty sedan, this car is definitely worth considering.

This is what Dan Pugh liked most about this particular version of the Kia Cerato: Fun to drive , GT design touches, Better looking than hatch

The 2019 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 2019 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Cerato 2019 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What is the difference between the Hyundai i30 N Line and Kia Cerato GT?

    The Kia’s seven-year factory warranty is – and should be – a big selling point. But that’s countered by much more expensive servicing over the Hyundai. Keen driveaway pricing also works in the Kia’s favour, however. Frankly, both are great cars with lots of useable performance (they share the same engine, actually) and practical layouts.

    So, it could come down to a philosophical debate: The i30 N Line sits one rung below the hero i30 version, the N. The GT, meanwhile, is the flagship Cerato, so you don’t need to explain to the neighbours why you didn’t buy the flashest one. But for a lot of buyers, a manual transmission is the gearbox of choice in quick little hatches like these, and only the Hyundai offers a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT. In the Kia, it’s the DCT or nothing.

  • What is the best safe and cost-effective car for my kids to drive?

    The best approach is to buy a car from a well-respected brand, and stick with an Asian brand such as Toyota, Mazda, Hyundai or Kia rather than an European one. Models to consider would be a Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, Hyundai i30 or Kia Cerato.
