According to the latest reports from various car journalists in Pakistan, Kia is set to launch Cerato in Pakistan later this year.
Cerato is a midsize family sedan that will compete with the likes of Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra. According to reports, Cerato will have a 1.6 Liter in-line four-cylinder Petrol Engine that produces 123 horsepower and 154 newton/meter torches and can be switched to a 6-speed speed box and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It is also believed that Kia Lucky Motors has already brought several units to Cerato for testing.
Internal and external KIA Cerato specification
The Kia Cerato has a vertical exterior, with lines formed on the car’s body, giving it a modern look. It is also compatible with the KIA logo in the past. The look of the car makes it well-suited to compete in the family car segment.
The KIA Cerato is approximately 4640 mm long, 1800 mm wide, and 1440 mm long. The size can be compared to the 11th generation of Corolla. The KIA Cerato is shorter in height but longer and wider than the Corolla.
According to unconfirmed reports online, the KIA Cerato will also play with several internal components. These include USB and Bluetooth connectivity, AC rear seats, shift shifts, mounting aids, and temperature-controlled seats.
The fourth-generation Cerato, famous with the name Kia Forte in the North American market, or the Kia K3 in the Chinese and Korean markets, was unveiled at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan in January 2018. The car lends its style—cords from their line, full size, Kia Stinger.
The Kia Cerato international market is loaded with tech features of its basic model, other competing cars offering options. These include:
- Automatic headlights Tilt
- telescopic steering column
- Behind the light bulb 2-

- Back seat heaters
- 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Cerato is expected to have a tough competition.
The car is believed to have been sold for about Rs. 3.1 to 3.7 million, depending on the level of trim and other additional features offered. The car dealership in North America is in the $ 18,000 range.
The midsize market in the speed bump market is a good sign for Pakistan. Healthy competition among many automakers is likely to impact not only sales strategy but also on price and quality control.
In addition, competition can motivate consumers to eventually offer consumers features in cars that express their sales value. The Toyota Indus recently released its Toyota Yaris in the 1.3L category. In addition, there are reports that Honda Pakistan is also launching the next generation of Honda City by the end of next year.
This will give a good KIA Cerato competition in the sedan segment. However, with a competitive price tag and status symbols, Cerato can make its mark in the hearts of Pakistani car customers. The automotive sector in Pakistan has faced difficult times due to unfavorable exchange rates, high-interest rates, and rising competition.
