Had the offer been made in recent years I would more than likely declined, possibly citing as an excuse an untidy sock drawer that needed re-arranging -- but after a couple of recent stints in the current Kia flock I believed it worthy of further evaluation. The model on test is the top of the line SLi. The vehicle was supplied with auto transmission and premium paint options and everything else comes as standard, including 17" alloys, a full-size alloy spare, climate control air conditioning, steering wheel-mounted controls for cr uise and the sound system along with a leather-w rapped steering wheel and gear shift. All this at just under $25,500 plus on roads. The Cerato doesn't miss out on standard safety either with six airbags, stability control, electronic brake-force distribution with brake assist, traction control, active front head restraints, driver's seat belt warning -- and the list goes on, assisting the Cerato to achieve a 4-star ANCAP crash rating. It also has rear park assist with dash display, reach and height adjustable steering column, auto-sensing lights, front fog lights and heated exterior mirrors, adding to an ever-increasing list of standard features. Although the industry categorises it as ‘sm all’, the Cerato sits in the new mid-size category, which is the fastest-growing section for new vehicle sales. In these tighter economic times this is the size of vehicle that people are increasingly looking to as the family car. It isn't the biggest car in this category, but it isn't the smallest either, by a long stretch. With fewer than 200 kilometres under our belt on the extended test to date, we are just getting acquainted with the Cerato. Over the next six months the car will substitute as the daily driver and family car for us. It's considerably smaller than the regular family wheels -- a Ford Territory -- so we may all have to make some compromises. More next issue! 27 February / March 10
