After 12 months doing duty as the female voice of the CarAdvice writing and road test team Rose Harris is moving on to other things. We won’t be losing complete contact with Rose as she will continue to contribute to CarAdvice from time to time.
The change has meant that Rose’s long-term Kia Cerato has found a new home, the inner city garage of our new writer, Nadine Armstrong, who’s now had a couple of weeks to get to know her new transport. – David Twomey, Editor.
Words – Nadine Armstrong
Picking up where Rose left off, I agree with many of the observations made to date. There is a lot to like about the Cerato and for the price (the SLi starts at $22,990), you get a very respectable package.
Kia has made some ground-breaking changes which should see buyers think twice when it comes to purchasing a new vehicle.
When I tell people I am testing a Kia, the response is usually a less than enthusiastic one and I have even felt a distinct “oh, you poor thing” response from some. However, when the doubters see and even go for a ride in the Cerato, opinions quickly change.
Well I officially have a new chariot as my family runabout, the 2.0-litre, five-speed manual all-new Kia Cerato SLi.
The Cerato will line up alongside CarAdvice’s list of long term test cars and for the next six months it will be my duty to put the vehicle to the ultimate family test.
