Kia Cerato hatch pricing outed

Hatching a plan: The new Kia Cerato hatch will join its sedan sibling which has been on sale locally since June.

New-generation Kia Cerato hatch to mirror sedan pricing, starting from $19,990 d/a

19 Dec 2018

PRICING for Kia’s fourth-generation Cerato small hatch has been revealed, with the new four-variant range set to share the same driveaway pricing as its sedan twin that arrived in June.
The range will kick off from $19,990 driveaway for the entry-level S with a six-speed manual, and will top out at $26,190 for the Sport+. The sportier, turbocharged GT variant will also join the range in January.
Opting for the six-speed automatic on the S increases the asking price by $1500 to $21,490 driveaway, while the mid-spec Sport comes in at $23,690.
All versions bar the incoming GT share the same carryover 2.0-litre aspirated petrol engine outputting 112kW/192Nm, sending drive to the front wheels.
The GT will instead use a 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine shared with the likes of the Hyundai Veloster and i30 SR, which should be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Autonomous emergency braking (AEB), forward collision warning and lane-keep assist are standard across the range, while other safety equipment can be optioned.
Standard kit on the entry-level S grade includes 16-inch steel wheels, six airbags, reversing camera with guidelines, front and rear parking sensors, a tyre pressure monitor, cruise control, speed limiter and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay, Android Auto and DAB+ digital radio.
Moving up to the mid-spec Sport adds 17-inch alloys, satellite navigation with live traffic updates, premium steering wheel and gear shifter, and sports seats.
Both the S and Sport are available with one of two safety packs for $1000, which add adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic later, blind-spot monitor, pedestrian and cyclist detection for AEB, auto-folding side mirrors and a leather steering wheel on S models.
The top-spec Sport+ takes the specification of the Sport and adds all of the features from the safety pack bar blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert, LED daytime running lights, proximity key and push-button start, leather seats, climate control and rear air vents.
Adding the two missing safety features to the Sport+ can be done at an additional cost of $500.
With one month left in 2018, Kia has clocked up 17,414 combined sales of the Cerato, just 0.2 per cent off the pace of last year’s total.
It currently sits fifth in the competitive small car segment, behind the Toyota Corolla (33,009), Mazda3 (28,780), Hyundai i30 (26,416) and Volkswagen Golf (17,856).
