CERATO-BROCHURE-1

The Kia Cerato K3 is coming very soon – Kia Malaysia announced last week that the car is open for booking and would be in showrooms on July 2nd 2013. We also saw the Cerato microsite on Kia Malaysia’s website tease a few features that would be available with the car, such as ventilated seats.

But you can’t book a car without having an idea of how many variants there are and what the specs would most likely be, so it’s inevitable that officially brochures often make their way to sales advisors before the official launch. And then they end up in hands of paultan.org readers like YK who graciously decided to send a scanned copy in – thanks YK!

You can click on the thumbnails above for the full picture – but the gist of it is that there are two models – a 1.6 litre and a 2.0 litre, which curiously doesn’t mirror that of the Elantra which comes with a 1.8 litre for the larger engine option instead of 2.0 litre.

The 2.0 litre model will have all the goodies including the teased ventilated seats, and it will even have a sunroof. That’s not to say that the 1.6 litre’s specs will be shabby either – 6 airbags are standard on the Cerato K3 as are ISOFIX child seat mount points, ABS and ESP stability control. Even the alloy wheel size is the same between the two cars – 17 inch wrapped with 215/45R17 tyres.

Now all that remains to be known is the price – a quick check on Kia Cerato K3 for sale on oto.my lists the 1.6 litre version for RM97k, but there’s no prices so far for the 2.0 litre.

We drove both the 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre versions of the Kia Cerato recently in Dubai – read our Kia Cerato Review to find out how the car is like.
