Kia Cerato

The Kia Cerato small hatch and sedan range is sharp value compared to rivals like the ubiquitous Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3, and has become one of the most popular choices in the segment. 

While the base models are bread-and-and-butter transport with 2.0-litre engines, the choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, and austere but well-specified cabins, the flagship Kia Cerato GT is a warmed-up performance grade. 

Its 150kW and 265Nm turbo engine, double-clutch automatic, independent rear suspension, and firm suspension tune make it a warm performance car on a budget.
