The tested model of Kia Cerato was introduced in Australia early in 2009. This rating applies to all Cerato sedan and hatch variants built from April 2009, when improved knee protection was introduced. Earlier builds had the same star rating but a lower offset test score.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) with Emergency Brake Assist is also standard. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is standard in New Zealand and on the SLi variant in Australia. ESC is optional on the S variant. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
