2008 Kia Cerato Variant 2 EX 1.6L petrol
My 1st best car I ever had
So far it's so good!
Outlook of the car is decent and it does not look so Asian in design, unlike the Japanese auto-makers. No wonder KIA marketed their products mostly in Europe.
By the way, interior is spacious and comfortable. The driver's cockpit is very neat and well designed. Instrument tools/panels are easy to meddle with, and the car has a great headroom for my height of 1.75m.
Best of all, the fuel consumption is very good for a 1.6L car. The furthest I can travel before the fuel indicator's light turned on was 570km, meaning I still have 8L of gas reserve. It has a big gas tank that holds 55L of gas inclusive of the reserve.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You mentioned that your Variant 2 traveled 570km before the petrol light indicator lighted up. That's kinda hard to believe, no offence dude.
What I'm also assuming is that your V2 Cerato's petrol consumption (also considering the way you drive) is as equivalent to me driving a 1.6l Toyota with a VVT-i engine? Are my assumptions accurate to what you have said?
I'm just amazed cos I own the Cerato 2006 model and it has never passed, say 520km, before the light came up.
And I have a friend who also owns the V2 Cerato and he's quite skeptical about your claims. He has the manual BTW and you mentioned that yours is semi-auto which sounds auto to me.
Auto transmission cars use more petrol than manual usually.
I don't know much about cars, but I have an 09 Kia Cerato TD and my fuel light also comes on around 570km.
I get about 650km out of a tank if I use premium unleaded. And I get about 600km out a tank if I use unleaded.
Agree with you totally! It's the way you drive. For the record, without failure I will hit 460-480km per half tank, and not to boast, but I even hit 740km with a remaining balance of 3 litres... ;) I love my Cerato!!
