The engine in the Kia Cerato S is not designed to put a smile on your face, but it does its job with confidence. However, Kia is bound to switch to forced induction with the next generation in order to keep up with the emissions, power and fuel economy of its main competitors.

The new suspension setup is a lot better than the old one. The Cerato has enjoyed some pretty good sales, so it wouldn’t be true to call the old car uncomfortable, but whoever has had a ride in both the new one and the old one will clearly notice the difference.
