What our customers are saying about the Kia Cerato in Dubai, UAE
Khan - When it came time to buy used cars in Dubai for good prices, I heard a second hand Kia Cerato was a good choice so I went online and found one for a low price in the UAE. It’s great on fuel and appears to be easy to sell as everyone is looking for one. Pros: Resale value, maintenance costs and fuel consumption. Cons: Handling.
Abdullah - I bought a 1.6 litre pre owned Kia Cerato Coupe last year, and I have to say these cars are excellent for the price they cost, great options and it's excellent on fuel when it comes to long journeys. Pros: Options, styling and fuel economy. Cons: Slow.
Farouq - My import Kia Cerato is just incredible. I’ve never had a problem with it nor have I heard of these cars having any major problems. I should have bought a newer one at a higher price as the options aren’t so good. Pros: Robust and resale value. Cons: Interior options in old models.
