Take the wheel of the stylish new Kia Cerato and start your day feeling invigorated, relaxed and capable of anything.
This remarkable compact sedan delivers inspiring performance, along with the latest driver assistance and entertainment technologies. Life just got more interesting.
The enticing silhouette of the Cerato extends from its long hood, under which its power is generated, to the spacious cabin, where there is ample legroom and headroom thanks to the gentle sweep of the roofline. Every day, you will find new possibilities to explore in a sedan that is built to go beyond.
The Cerato has the best of both worlds—a sporty character grounded in a nimble suspension and responsive drivetrain, coupled with the allure of a spacious, welcoming interior.
Aerodynamic contours draw the eye from front to back, while its daring stance signals that it’s up for anything.
There are a number of stunning details you’ll notice every time you return to your Cerato. The boldly shaped, complex headlamp housings. The intersection of the side contour and the front grille. And how the tail lamps seamlessly blend with the rear trunk lid spoiler. Every line on the Cerato contributes to its winning personality.
Simplicity is the key to the luxuriousness of the Cerato dashboard. The look is clean throughout, with driver information appearing sparingly on the instrument cluster and floating center monitor. Metallic trim gives a sporty yet sophisticated touch, while sleek lines connect the turbine-inspired air vents at either side.
Inside the roomy cabin of the Cerato you will find clean lines, supportive seats and surfaces that are pleasing to the touch. All models feature seat bolsters front and rear, while the rear seats offer ample space for two or three passengers to sit comfortably and stretch out.
Get crucial vehicle and driving information from this multi-tasking, multilanguage screen positioned between the tachometer and the speedometer.
Experience the refreshing sensation of open-top driving with the tilting and sliding, one-touch power sunroof. It opens and closes fully with one simple press of a finger.
Refreshingly easy to read and operate, the vivid 8” color LCD touchscreen controls the audio system, while giving you access to a wide-range of vehicle information. It is also linked to the rearview camera and features dynamic guidelines for easier reverse parking.
IMS lets you save two different, personalized presets for the driver’s seating position, outside rear-view mirror positions and cluster display information.
The appeal of the Cerato goes far beyond just style and comfort. Everywhere you look, you’ll notice details that are mindful of real-life situations. From the ease of getting in and out of the vehicle to the ergonomic controls at your fingertips, the Cerato helps you enjoy modern life to the fullest.
The 10-way power-assisted driver’s seat electrically adjusts so you can easily find your ideal driving position and store your setting using the integrated memory system (IMS). Power lumbar-support controls let you further fine-tune the seating position for additional comfort and fatigue-free driving
Subtle perforations in both the cushion and the seatback of the front seats promote cool, soothing airflow. On cold days, powerful front seat warmers activate quickly, so you can relax and focus on driving. The front seat warmers are activated using console-mounted switches, and can begin heating as soon as the ignition is turned on.
Shopping and transporting large items have never been easier thanks to the Smart Trunk. When your hands are full of bags, luggage or sporting gear, the trunk lid can be set so that it unlocks and opens automatically when the smart key is in the detection area for at least three seconds.
The smart key fob allows you to not only remotely unlock the doors and trunk, but also start the engine of your Cerato with a simple push of a button on the dashboard.
Charge a compatible mobile phone wirelessly on the pad at the front of the center console. An orange light indicates charging in progress; green indicates a full charge.
The engine start/stop button lets you turn the ignition on and off with the simple push of a finger.
Enjoy spirited and responsive performance with the lively 1.6-liter gasoline engine, the more powerful 2.0-liter gasoline engine or the efficient 1.6-liter diesel engine. Gasoline engines feature Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) and electronic fuel injection.
The 6-speed automatic is silky smooth and precise while the 7-speed Dual-Clutch automatic allows even quicker gear changes.
The durable 6-speed manual offers dynamic shift feel, enhanced fuel efficiency and easier shifting into reverse.
With both automatic and Dual-Clutch Transmissions, DMS lets you choose Comfort, Eco or Sport mode to suit your preferences and driving conditions, or a new Smart mode, which switches between these three modes based on how you drive.
The Cerato boasts substantial torsional rigidity thanks to strategic application of hot-stamped steel and Advanced High-Strength Steel. The body resists twisting forces, so jolts are absorbed with precision. In the event of a collision, impact forces are managed in ways that better protect the occupant space.
To help protect occupants and potentially reduce injuries in the event of a collision, the Cerato includes driver and front passenger airbags, two front-side airbags and available side-curtain airbags running the length of the interior on each side.
Optimal braking performance and directional control are ensured by automatically delivering the right amount of braking force to each wheel based on evaluation of engine torque and driving circumstances.
By continuously sensing wheel speeds, ABS detects when a wheel is going to lock, then modulates brake pressure to the wheel to help maintain control.
When you’re stopped on an incline, HAC can help prevent you from dangerously rolling backwards. When you take your foot off the brake, HAC will maintain braking for two more seconds before you press the accelerator, which disengages the HAC.
Using radar technology, BCW warns you if it detects a vehicle approaching from behind or in the adjacent lanes of travel. The system employs visual alerts on the side view mirror to inform the driver when it detects a vehicle in the blind spot.
When reversing out of a parking spot or driveway, RCCW scans the area behind the Cerato using radar technology and alerts you with an audible warning signal if it senses a vehicle crossing your intended path.
To help you park safely and confidently, PDW-F uses ultrasonic sensors mounted on the front and rear bumpers to warn of any obstacles. These warnings can help you position the wheels properly when maneuvering the Stinger into tight spaces.
