So about seven months ago it was time for me to start looking for a new car. With my previous cars being a Toyota Corolla RXI and a 2005 RunX, the first place I drove to was the Toyota dealership. I really had no idea what I was looking for – my eye was on the Auris – but I was completely disappointed after my test drive. I was back at square one.On my way home, I went past the Mitsubishi dealership. I had always been a fan of the Lancer and liked the look of it, so I had a test drive in the 2.0 Lancer but wasn’t over the moon about the car. It was very basic with no trimmings or gadgets, but I found it more appealing than the Auris... I thought to myself that I would come back next weekend and test more cars, when I drove past a Kia exhibition and saw this bright red mean looking coupe. Never in a million years would I have thought I would find myself making a U-turn to look at a Kia exhibition, but I did… And that’s where I found the car I was looking for, the Kia Cerato Koup.Exterior:Even a blind man can see that this car is a looker. It looks extremely sleek and sporty, has 17-inch rims and frameless doors, the works. The car is a beaut and really turns heads. However, it’s always amusing to see people’s faces when they see the Kia badge.Interior:It gets even better; leather seats, MP3/AUX/USB/iPOD, cruise control, climate control, leg room for days in the front and back and a huge boot.Performance:This is the only let down of this car, The 2.0-litre engine kicks out 115kW, which is decent, but there are flat spots. I have the four-speed semi auto with tiptronic and even though the car isn’t a complete slouch, it does lack grunt... In essence the car looks faster than it is.Overall:Weighing up the pros and cons, there are far more pros than cons with this car. I love every second in my car, and considering that I paid R220 000 for it, I know for a FACT there is no other car on the road like it, for the price.
