In mid 2018, the fourth-generation Cerato sedan arrived, with the hatch version following suit later that year, bringing with it extra safety and features to go with its increased dimensions. S, Sport and Sport+ walk-up designations replaced the old S, Sport, Si and SLi ones.
Like its predecessors, Cerato IV was styled at Kia’s Irvine studio in California, with the sedan’s proportions altering with a more long-bonnet/short boot silhouette than before to give it a sportier look. It was also stronger, quieter and more refined, with improved dynamics. 
Under the bonnet was the same 112kW/192Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as before, driving the front wheels via either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. 
The MacPherson-style strut front and torsion beam rear suspension layouts were revamped over the preceding versions.
Kia expanded its Cerato range with the addition of a five-door hatch body style and the availability of warmed-over GT variants in January 2019. The latter was motivated by a 150kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine that promised spritely performance.
