Kia Cerato Hatchback boot space, practicality and safety

2004 - 2006 (change model)
Practicality rating: 3 out of 53.0

A three-star Euro NCAP rating is disappointing when five-star results are becoming the norm in this class. However, it does get six airbags, sophisticated ABS and front seat belt pretensioners with load limiters. Remote central locking and an alarm are also fitted.

The boot is a decent enough size, and the rear seats split fold for those occasions when more carrying space is needed. There are a number of storage areas in the cabin – even one for your glasses.
