Kia Cerato 1.6 GT Line vs Seat Toledo 1.4 TSI DSG Style
A Respected Heavyweight in its Class  
Having owned the Kia Cerato SX for close to a year, I'm here to give a humble owner's experience. The Kia Cerato's latest iteration pays homage to its bigger brother - the Kia Stinger, as could be seen in its design cues. I am personally attracted to the aggressive styling cues on the exterior, the young and sporty look of the interior (the 'floating' 8.0" ' touchscreen infotainment system got me sold) coupled with a few high tech features such as wireless charging, Apple Carplay and Android Auto was something that sweetened up the entire package. To add on, things like ventilated car seats, only available in continental makes, are the first to be introduced in this vehicle. Knockdown rear seats are available in the 'SX' trim and above and to spoil you with even more goodies, the car is equipped with DRL (Daytime Running Lights), smart trunk system, cruise control and different speed modes to suit your day-to-day driving style. As a driver bonus, you even have your own 'conti-like' electronic seat with memory function for you to lock it between yourself and your driver No. 2, never again would you need to fumble for the right seating adjustment if you should you T-Loan your car to that desperate sibling of yours itching to show off this ride to your, maybe soon to be 'sister in law'. Back then, C&C was selling only the 'L', 'SX' and 'GT Line' model and of course, since I wanted a fully assembled car in Kimchi land, it's simply a no-brainer. To pay an extra $8k to bump from SX to GT-Line when the parts are fixed locally? No way! I'll probably dive into more details along the way, but in a nutshell; Would I still buy it if I had to go back in time to decide on this car? For a car with that much features and at such a price-point, in a heartbeat - a resounding 'Yes!'

Most Unbaised Review  
I write this review after driving the car for more than 1500km. My last car was a Subaru Forester XT(2.0). Similarly to all cars under 1.6, there is not much to talk about on power and pickup. The Sports mode does not make much difference on the pick up. The interior design is sleek as compare to similar 1.6 Korean or Japanese car; Wirelss charging, Apple Car Play and Andriod Auto, rear aircon, spacious boot space. Rear seat is spacious and comfortable. The paintwork is mediocre as there are spots with paint chipping rather easily. I would prefer for ceramic coating to be done to protect the paintwork. Headlight fog up during raining days and a search on car forum indicate this is a known problem. C&C service center offered to replace some part to suck out the moisture. I do not have time to do this corrective work during the 1k servicing and will enquiry and have it done in the coming 10k servicing. Overall, this car is value for money when compared to similar Japanese car like the Civic or Altis which easily cost 10-20k more. The ride is comfortable for family of 4 or 5 with small kids/teens. Take away, there is such thing as cheap and good(with all high end parts)! I'm more than happy with the reasonable priced and yet sleek and stylish ride.
