BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN — Sporting a new look, the fourth-generation Kia Cerato is now available in Brunei.

Grand Motors Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Kia vehicles in Brunei, unveiled the refreshed Cerato at its Beribi and Kuala Belait showrooms on Friday. 

The Cerato is the first model in Brunei to sport the new Kia logo.

In January, Kia unveiled its new logo and global brand slogan with the latest Cerato to ignite its bold transformation for the future.

The new logo features “symmetry”, “rhythm” and “rising” elements that embody Kia’s commitment to customers.

Its new brand slogan — ‘Movement that Inspires’ aims to inspire consumers through products and services, and their experiences with the brand, Grand Motors said in its statement.

Sleek new look

Available in two distinct body styles — a hatchback and sedan, the new Cerato builds on its reputation of sharp design and athletic performance to innovate and set new standards in the compact car segment.

Sportier, sleeker, and more dynamic from top to bottom, the new Cerato GL hatchback is a sight to behold. 

The exterior makes it easily distinguishable, from the radiator grille, front and rear bumper to the new Kia logo.

The ultra-modern cabin is spacious, driver-focused, and offers the latest infotainment system.
