The Kia Cerato sedan (BD series) was introduced in Australia in May 2018, with hatch variants released from December 2018. The Cerato sedan and hatch were released in New Zealand from September 2018.
This 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all sedan and hatch variants except Cerato S and Cerato Sport variants without Safety Pack 1. A separate ANCAP safety rating is available for these variants.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard. Autonomous emergency braking (City and Interurban) is standard on all variants. A more advanced AEB system capable of detecting and reacting to Vulnerable Road Users is available as an option as part of Safety Pack 1 for Cerato S and Cerato Sport variants, and standard on other variants.
A lane keep assist (LKA) system with lane departure warning (LDW) and a manual-set speed limiter are standard on all variants.
