Externally, the new Kia Cerato of 2018 is significantly different from previous models, because it is made in accordance with the latest artistic solutions of the leading designer of the company Peter Schreier.

INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN

Despite the fact that Kia Cerato is positioned as a simplified sports car, it does not prevent to use it for family trips, and the rear seat of the model is equipped with two anchorages for children’s chairs.

First of all, we would like to note that the legendary “tiger grin”, which is so famous for the Kia model, is more noticeable on this model, thanks to an elaborate chrome-plated radiator grille. Regarding the headlights of the new modified model – even in the basic configuration, the car is equipped with advanced lensed headlights that perfectly illuminate both near and far, including side, objects.

In general, we can say that the car, with good aerodynamic performance, is made in a restrained sports style with a certain degree of aggressiveness inherent in the line of Kia Cerato.

ENGINE

From previous versions of the sedan, engine power increased slightly, and fuel consumption was reduced in a mixed cycle to 6.5 liters. A new diesel engine has appeared, but these versions of the car will not enter the market immediately. The complete sets with 6-step mechanics and automation, 7-band robot remained the same.

No significant changes were made to the chassis. It also features a multi-link front suspension, a rear torsional semi-dependent, telescopic shock absorbers. But the nodes of linkage of the levers were modified, the settings of the rigidity and springs were changed, the “strength” of the subframe was increased. Due to these changes, Kia engineers tried to prevent the breakdown of the body with its load and swing.

The dimensions of the sedan have changed, along with the body design: the length (up to 4.5 m) and the width (up to 1.78 m) have increased, the height has decreased on the contrary (to 1.4 m). Clearance (15 cm), wheelbase (2.7 m) and weight (from 1.39 t) remained the same.
