00:00:02,879 –> 00:00:09,760

3
00:00:07,680 –> 00:00:11,759
so this is the highest end variant that

4
00:00:09,760 –> 00:00:14,080
you can get in singapore there are three

5
00:00:11,759 –> 00:00:16,000
variants basically the l the ex and the

6
00:00:14,080 –> 00:00:18,400
gt okay so i have the price list here

7
00:00:16,000 –> 00:00:18,400
with me

8
00:00:20,420 –> 00:00:24,720
[Music]

9
00:00:22,560 –> 00:00:27,279
so some quick specs for this cerato this

10
00:00:24,720 –> 00:00:29,840
is actually the facelift cerato it’s not

11
00:00:27,279 –> 00:00:32,079
a new generation okay it’s a facelift

12
00:00:29,840 –> 00:00:33,760
and this has the same engine as the

13
00:00:32,079 –> 00:00:35,920
pre-facelift

14
00:00:33,760 –> 00:00:39,680
uh the 1.6 gamma engine naturally

15
00:00:35,920 –> 00:00:41,200
aspirated 128 horsepower 155 newton

16
00:00:39,680 –> 00:00:43,920
meters of torque

17
00:00:41,200 –> 00:00:45,920
um if you are researching this car right

18
00:00:43,920 –> 00:00:48,320
i highly suggest looking at local

19
00:00:45,920 –> 00:00:50,320
publications rather than overseas ones

20
00:00:48,320 –> 00:00:52,320
because in other markets like australia

21
00:00:50,320 –> 00:00:55,680
and all that they get a cerato with like

22
00:00:52,320 –> 00:01:00,000
a 1.6 turbo engine uh whereas singapore

23
00:00:55,680 –> 00:01:02,000
will only get the 1.6 na okay so yeah it

24
00:01:00,000 –> 00:01:03,760
varies depending on which market you are

25
00:01:02,000 –> 00:01:06,479
looking at and also another thing is

26
00:01:03,760 –> 00:01:09,439
that singapore we only get all black

27
00:01:06,479 –> 00:01:11,520
interior overseas they get like a brown

28
00:01:09,439 –> 00:01:13,840
black interior combination which

29
00:01:11,520 –> 00:01:15,920
actually looks very very nice okay so

30
00:01:13,840 –> 00:01:17,600
from the outside uh of course you can

31
00:01:15,920 –> 00:01:19,520
tell the difference between the facelift

32
00:01:17,600 –> 00:01:21,119
and the pre-face lift okay it’s quite

33
00:01:19,520 –> 00:01:24,640
the difference is quite big

34
00:01:21,119 –> 00:01:27,280
this facelifted kia cerato i think looks

35
00:01:24,640 –> 00:01:30,000
very futuristic it actually reminds me a

36
00:01:27,280 –> 00:01:31,840
bit of the new avanti from certain

37
00:01:30,000 –> 00:01:34,159
angles okay so

38
00:01:31,840 –> 00:01:38,159
yeah it’s a pretty good looking car this

39
00:01:34,159 –> 00:01:40,880
gt line gets the led headlamps led tail

40
00:01:38,159 –> 00:01:42,720
lights led daytime running lights

41
00:01:40,880 –> 00:01:44,720
because yeah it’s a higher spec version

42
00:01:42,720 –> 00:01:47,920
right so yeah it gets all the best

43
00:01:44,720 –> 00:01:50,759
all the best stuff okay interior this uh

44
00:01:47,920 –> 00:01:53,280
screen has been upgraded now it’s about

45
00:01:50,759 –> 00:01:56,159
10.25 inches i think

46
00:01:53,280 –> 00:01:57,680
yeah 10.25 inches so you can see it’s

47
00:01:56,159 –> 00:01:59,520
quite big but i don’t know why apple

48
00:01:57,680 –> 00:02:01,280
carplay only takes up like three

49
00:01:59,520 –> 00:02:03,360
quarters of the screen so yeah this is

50
00:02:01,280 –> 00:02:05,759
touchscreen of course and the buttons

51
00:02:03,360 –> 00:02:08,239
below here are all touch sensitive very

52
00:02:05,759 –> 00:02:09,440
responsive the resolution is also very

53
00:02:08,239 –> 00:02:11,920
clear

54
00:02:09,440 –> 00:02:14,879
yeah dual zone climate control

55
00:02:11,920 –> 00:02:18,080
this car also comes with two usb ports

56
00:02:14,879 –> 00:02:19,760
and one 12v socket

57
00:02:18,080 –> 00:02:21,920
one interesting feature or not

58
00:02:19,760 –> 00:02:24,000
interesting feature one useful feature

59
00:02:21,920 –> 00:02:24,879
this car has is the ventilated seats for

60
00:02:24,000 –> 00:02:27,520
both

61
00:02:24,879 –> 00:02:28,879
driver and passenger so this is quite

62
00:02:27,520 –> 00:02:31,920
useful because

63
00:02:28,879 –> 00:02:33,840
you can air your balls while driving

64
00:02:31,920 –> 00:02:36,400
oh yeah this car also comes with memory

65
00:02:33,840 –> 00:02:40,239
seats for the driver only okay because

66
00:02:36,400 –> 00:02:42,720
the passenger one is a manual okay

67
00:02:40,239 –> 00:02:43,840
you can see that it’s

68
00:02:42,720 –> 00:02:46,000
yeah

69
00:02:43,840 –> 00:02:49,040
passenger side is manual driver side is

70
00:02:46,000 –> 00:02:51,680
uh electric and it has memory seats so

71
00:02:49,040 –> 00:02:53,599
that’s quite useful also

72
00:02:51,680 –> 00:02:54,879
this seat is in my original driver’s

73
00:02:53,599 –> 00:02:56,800
position

74
00:02:54,879 –> 00:02:57,920
you can see i have more than one knuckle

75
00:02:56,800 –> 00:03:01,120
of

76
00:02:57,920 –> 00:03:03,360
knee room and my feet are comfortably

77
00:03:01,120 –> 00:03:05,920
under the driver’s seat

78
00:03:03,360 –> 00:03:08,239
so there’s plenty of space center

79
00:03:05,920 –> 00:03:10,800
transmission tunnel isn’t that big so

80
00:03:08,239 –> 00:03:12,400
middle seat passengers will have

81
00:03:10,800 –> 00:03:14,800
leg room

82
00:03:12,400 –> 00:03:15,760
alright you also get rear aircon very

83
00:03:14,800 –> 00:03:16,720
useful

84
00:03:15,760 –> 00:03:17,599
there’s

85
00:03:16,720 –> 00:03:19,680
just

86
00:03:17,599 –> 00:03:22,400
about one knuckle of head room

87
00:03:19,680 –> 00:03:24,480
for middle seat passengers and

88
00:03:22,400 –> 00:03:29,400
and yeah just about one knuckle of heat

89
00:03:24,480 –> 00:03:29,400
room for the rear passengers

90
00:03:35,840 –> 00:03:41,040
so i’ve been driving this car around the

91
00:03:38,080 –> 00:03:43,040
entire day today since morning

92
00:03:41,040 –> 00:03:45,519
and the first thing i can tell you is

93
00:03:43,040 –> 00:03:48,159
that even though this is just a facelift

94
00:03:45,519 –> 00:03:49,360
somehow it feels quite different from

95
00:03:48,159 –> 00:03:51,360
the

96
00:03:49,360 –> 00:03:53,439
pre-facelift cerato

97
00:03:51,360 –> 00:03:55,680
so the first thing i can say is that the

98
00:03:53,439 –> 00:03:57,920
engine is pretty responsive even though

99
00:03:55,680 –> 00:04:01,040
it’s naturally aspirated

100
00:03:57,920 –> 00:04:02,720
just a 1.6 liter engine somehow this car

101
00:04:01,040 –> 00:04:04,319
feels a bit more up market sometimes i

102
00:04:02,720 –> 00:04:05,599
feel like i’m driving a volkswagen

103
00:04:04,319 –> 00:04:08,480
because

104
00:04:05,599 –> 00:04:12,000
it just like the materials they use the

105
00:04:08,480 –> 00:04:13,360
interior feel the way this car drives

106
00:04:12,000 –> 00:04:15,360
yeah there’s

107
00:04:13,360 –> 00:04:18,959
it just feels a

108
00:04:15,360 –> 00:04:20,799
like a vag group car and that’s yeah not

109
00:04:18,959 –> 00:04:23,040
really a bad thing right

110
00:04:20,799 –> 00:04:24,800
so in this gt line you get like this uh

111
00:04:23,040 –> 00:04:25,759
flat bottom steering

112
00:04:24,800 –> 00:04:27,680
there are

113
00:04:25,759 –> 00:04:30,240
quite a number of safety features like

114
00:04:27,680 –> 00:04:31,600
your lane departure warning rear cross

115
00:04:30,240 –> 00:04:33,840
traffic alert

116
00:04:31,600 –> 00:04:36,639
blind spot monitoring

117
00:04:33,840 –> 00:04:38,080
uh smart cruise control so there’s a

118
00:04:36,639 –> 00:04:39,680
separate video i’ll put the link

119
00:04:38,080 –> 00:04:41,199
somewhere here or in the description

120
00:04:39,680 –> 00:04:43,360
where you can check out

121
00:04:41,199 –> 00:04:46,230
me driving the car and then like testing

122
00:04:43,360 –> 00:04:52,639
out all these different things

123
00:04:46,230 –> 00:04:55,040
[Music]

124
00:04:52,639 –> 00:04:57,040
so that was me flooring the car in

125
00:04:55,040 –> 00:04:59,520
normal mode

126
00:04:57,040 –> 00:05:03,280
i feel like this has

127
00:04:59,520 –> 00:05:05,680
much lesser lag than the pre-facelift

128
00:05:03,280 –> 00:05:07,680
cerato even though they are using i

129
00:05:05,680 –> 00:05:09,199
believe they are using the same engine

130
00:05:07,680 –> 00:05:10,919
but maybe because this car is new it

131
00:05:09,199 –> 00:05:14,000
only has like

132
00:05:10,919 –> 00:05:16,160
2261 kilometers on the clock so maybe

133
00:05:14,000 –> 00:05:19,600
that’s why i’m not sure but yeah engine

134
00:05:16,160 –> 00:05:21,919
is pretty responsive uh sports mode i

135
00:05:19,600 –> 00:05:24,560
tried it just now

136
00:05:21,919 –> 00:05:26,080
power is i mean it just

137
00:05:24,560 –> 00:05:28,240
sports mode basically just drags the

138
00:05:26,080 –> 00:05:30,110
gears right so yeah that’s what you get

139
00:05:28,240 –> 00:05:33,119
when you put this kind of sports mode

140
00:05:30,110 –> 00:05:33,119
[Music]

141
00:05:33,440 –> 00:05:38,400
yeah that’s what you get the engine note

142
00:05:35,680 –> 00:05:40,639
is noticeably louder

143
00:05:38,400 –> 00:05:42,479
oh yeah we went over some bombs just now

144
00:05:40,639 –> 00:05:44,639
i have to say that this car is actually

145
00:05:42,479 –> 00:05:45,680
quite comfortable

146
00:05:44,639 –> 00:05:47,120
and

147
00:05:45,680 –> 00:05:49,280
sound insulation

148
00:05:47,120 –> 00:05:50,880
is pretty good also

149
00:05:49,280 –> 00:05:52,400
when i say like some insulation is

150
00:05:50,880 –> 00:05:54,320
pretty good pretty comfortable i’m

151
00:05:52,400 –> 00:05:57,199
talking about for this price point okay

152
00:05:54,320 –> 00:05:58,960
because for this price point yeah i

153
00:05:57,199 –> 00:06:01,280
think this car is excellent value for

154
00:05:58,960 –> 00:06:02,880
money because especially this gt line

155
00:06:01,280 –> 00:06:05,280
because you get all these safety

156
00:06:02,880 –> 00:06:07,520
features i mentioned earlier

157
00:06:05,280 –> 00:06:09,360
power is adequate because this is a

158
00:06:07,520 –> 00:06:11,680
family car so yeah you know power is

159
00:06:09,360 –> 00:06:11,680
okay

160
00:06:12,400 –> 00:06:16,960
steering is very sensitive you can see

161
00:06:15,840 –> 00:06:20,000
all right

162
00:06:16,960 –> 00:06:21,840
and let me just demonstrate the lane

163
00:06:20,000 –> 00:06:24,319
keeping

164
00:06:21,840 –> 00:06:26,319
assist feature so you can see right now

165
00:06:24,319 –> 00:06:28,960
that the car is trying to keep me within

166
00:06:26,319 –> 00:06:32,160
this lane so it’s gonna adjust

167
00:06:28,960 –> 00:06:34,240
itself okay so this is a slight bend we

168
00:06:32,160 –> 00:06:36,160
are on a slide bend and the car is

169
00:06:34,240 –> 00:06:39,120
adjusting itself

170
00:06:36,160 –> 00:06:42,960
okay keep your hands on steering wheel

171
00:06:39,120 –> 00:06:42,960
let’s say i don’t do it what happens

172
00:06:43,039 –> 00:06:46,000
yeah the car will keep adjusting for me

173
00:06:44,880 –> 00:06:48,240
oh nope

174
00:06:46,000 –> 00:06:49,840
doesn’t it just ready okay now we

175
00:06:48,240 –> 00:06:52,400
continue adjusting i think because just

176
00:06:49,840 –> 00:06:53,759
now at the junction there were no uh

177
00:06:52,400 –> 00:06:56,000
lane markings

178
00:06:53,759 –> 00:06:58,000
yeah this is quite a useful feature

179
00:06:56,000 –> 00:07:00,880
works for the most part but just now i

180
00:06:58,000 –> 00:07:03,440
was in quite heavy rain and i think

181
00:07:00,880 –> 00:07:05,440
visibility wasn’t that good so uh the

182
00:07:03,440 –> 00:07:07,360
car wasn’t really able to detect the

183
00:07:05,440 –> 00:07:09,919
lane markings and

184
00:07:07,360 –> 00:07:11,440
um yeah those kind of conditions better

185
00:07:09,919 –> 00:07:13,599
not to use this feature

186
00:07:11,440 –> 00:07:15,280
but apart from that you know whatever

187
00:07:13,599 –> 00:07:17,919
driving assistance

188
00:07:15,280 –> 00:07:20,400
features this car comes with it works

189
00:07:17,919 –> 00:07:24,479
most of the time

190
00:07:20,400 –> 00:07:27,280
um yeah okay so fuel consumption wise uh

191
00:07:24,479 –> 00:07:31,400
my trip computer says i’m averaging 8.8

192
00:07:27,280 –> 00:07:31,400
liters per hundred kilometers

193
00:07:35,360 –> 00:07:41,199
so this cerato was like

194
00:07:38,240 –> 00:07:42,840
designed to be a family friendly point a

195
00:07:41,199 –> 00:07:45,520
to point b

196
00:07:42,840 –> 00:07:47,599
reliable affordable kind of car and i

197
00:07:45,520 –> 00:07:48,720
think it suits that purpose very very

198
00:07:47,599 –> 00:07:52,400
well

199
00:07:48,720 –> 00:07:55,520
people who um traditionally would like

200
00:07:52,400 –> 00:07:57,520
opt for the toyota altis or honda civic

201
00:07:55,520 –> 00:07:59,759
this kind of point to point because now

202
00:07:57,520 –> 00:08:02,319
they have another um sort of another

203
00:07:59,759 –> 00:08:04,400
alternative okay to those cars and then

204
00:08:02,319 –> 00:08:07,759
of course you also have the avanti you

205
00:08:04,400 –> 00:08:10,400
also have like uh the nissan selfie

206
00:08:07,759 –> 00:08:12,160
so this like in this segment there are

207
00:08:10,400 –> 00:08:15,599
quite a number of cars for you to choose

208
00:08:12,160 –> 00:08:17,680
from but i feel like at this price point

209
00:08:15,599 –> 00:08:19,599
this car is excellent value for money

210
00:08:17,680 –> 00:08:21,520
plus cycle and carriage they have five

211
00:08:19,599 –> 00:08:22,560
years warranty and 10 years engine

212
00:08:21,520 –> 00:08:24,879
warranty

213
00:08:22,560 –> 00:08:26,879
10 years engine warranty means that

214
00:08:24,879 –> 00:08:29,120
you buy this car right until the coe

215
00:08:26,879 –> 00:08:30,879
ends you never have to worry about the

216
00:08:29,120 –> 00:08:33,039
engine so i’ve clocked more than 200

217
00:08:30,879 –> 00:08:34,479
kilometers on this car already

218
00:08:33,039 –> 00:08:36,320
and i can tell you right now that

219
00:08:34,479 –> 00:08:38,159
sometimes i do feel like i’m driving a

220
00:08:36,320 –> 00:08:41,360
vag group car

221
00:08:38,159 –> 00:08:43,039
a volkswagen group i mean because the

222
00:08:41,360 –> 00:08:45,279
steering the material on the steering

223
00:08:43,039 –> 00:08:47,760
wheel feels exactly like the ones you

224
00:08:45,279 –> 00:08:48,959

225
00:08:47,760 –> 00:08:50,240
