    You might have missed the massive advances of the Kia Motor Company -- if you’ve spent the last couple of years under a rock! No longer the ‘cheap and cheerful’ poorer cousin of sister company Hyundai, Kia has now surpassed the highly regarded reputation of its Japanese contemporaries on many fronts.

    New Kia Cerato Sedan Review

    Neil Dowling - carsguide.com.au

    Elvis Presley's role in the movie Kissin' Cousins is memorable not for his maligned acting skills but for confirming that some men just shouldn't go blond.
    But at least it separated the two characters in the film even though most of us - and I'm sorry to spoil the film for those who haven't seen it - figured out it was the same Elvis in two roles.

    Kia Cerato hatch first drive review

    Matt Campbell - drive.com.au

    Kia says the new hatch will account for 70 per cent of Cerato sales, with the bulk of those coming in the form of the base model S, which is priced from $19,990 plus on-road costs.
    That model will soon join the drive-away brigade to compete with sharply priced competitors like the Mazda3, Ford Focus, Hyundai i30 and Nissan Pulsar.

    cerato hatchKia has shifted its assault on the fiercely competitive small car class into second gear with the arrival of the new Cerato hatch, four months after the sedan made its local debut.
    Building on the already celebrated sedan, the new hatch matches its four-door brethren on price and spec levels, and Australia’s preference for five-door practicality fuels Kia’s expectation that the hatch will attract 70 per cent of mainstream Cerato sales.

    The Kia Grand Carnival has been the best selling people mover in Australia for a number of years.

But after so many years on the market, is it still the king?

    Kia launches second-generation Rondo MPV

    Jeremy Bass - carsales.com.au

    Kia has launched the second generation of its Rondo compact MPV with the diesel engine option long promised but not previously forthcoming.
    With petrol variants starting at $29,990 plus on roads and new diesel variants starting at $32,490, prices are up noticeably on the outgoing model, but so is the vehicle’s appeal in virtually every respect. It’s smaller and more car-like on the outside, with more usable space and storage indoors.

    Stephen Ottley - drive.com.au

    Kia is fast earning a reputation for making big steps forward with each new model it brings to Australia, and the new Rondo is no exception.
    On paper the Rondo (the ‘7’ has been dropped from the name) doesn’t sound very appealing - a compact seven-seat people mover with the choice of a small petrol or diesel engine.

    Kia Rondo: review

    Chris Riley - carsguide.com.au

    Kia has had a couple of cracks at the compact people mover concept. The first, Carens, which nobody probably remembers was cheap and nasty.
    The second, the Rondo 7, launched in 2007, was moderately successful based primarily on price. This latest one however might have what it takes to go all the way, a premium product with looks to match at least it seems so.
