It is unlikely that we will find any major changes in the Kia Cerato after its facelift. We should still be expecting a 1.6-litre non-turbo engine under the hood of the Kia Cerato. However, like a typical mid-life facelift, the front and the back receive more attention.
Exterior of the Cerato
At first glance, you will realise it’s a change in the logo. As part of the new logo, a bold line forms the brand name. The Cerato is refaced with a sharper and sleeker brand signature Tiger Nose grille that blends directly into the bodywork. Observe how there are now three sections each in the full LED headlights, as well as six sections of DRL above and below. This makes the car look wider and more coherent.
Likewise, the taillights receive a new LED signature, which generates a three-dimensional effect, while the lower valence gains many of the design cues from the front. The 17-inch alloy wheels fill the arches.
Interior of the Cerato
The interior design and layout have mostly remained unchanged, with the exception of the screens: There’s a new 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, as well as a 10.25-inch active instrument panel. The latest Cerato features an 8.0-inch touchscreen as well as traditional dials.
Other interior features include dual-zone automatic climate control, an electric parking brake (replacing the current manual lever), over-the-air infotainment updates, and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
Performance of the Cerato
Highway Driving Assist, which combines adaptive cruise control and lane-following assist systems to accelerate, brake, and centre the Cerato in its lane on freeways, is among the new active safety features offered.
A 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine powers the Cerato. It produces 128 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. It also has a 6-speed automatic transmission.
The Cerato is available in nine colors, including Mineral Blue, which is a new addition. Book your test drive now!
