Kia Cerato S Manual Sedan 2020 Radio Review

2020 Kia Cerato S Manual Sedan frontSmaller manual sedans are a disappearing breed in the car market. Changing consumer trends mean less people drive manuals, but Rob Fraser has just spent a week in one.

Launched in 2019 the Kia Cerato S Manual Sedan is the entry point to the range.

Cerato sedan is a surprisingly good looking vehicle with sleek design with a coupe like profile.

Inside it is as you would expect for an entry model, a little bland, yet still comes with features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an 8 inch touch screen with a 6 speaker audio system and clear Bluetooth connectivity.

Although it misses a few safety features it is well equipped as standard and has an excellent reversing camera.

Powered by a 2.0L 4 cylinder petrol engine that produces enough power for most people and  drives the front wheels through a six speed manual transmission using about 7.6l/100k.

Priced from about $21,500 plus the usual costs, it comes with Kia’s outstanding owner benefits package.
