Muscat: Since its inception, Kia Cerato has managed to achieve some pretty impressive milestones. The latest being the top ranking in the competitive J.D. Power and Associates IQS study.
Cerato’s selection for the award is compelling evidence attesting to the fact that the Cerato offers great value and versatility. As well, it offers both saloon and hatch body styles that appeal to families as well as singles.
“Regardless of the body style, Cerato promises a comfortable, quiet ride in a spacious ambience,” observed and enthusiast, “It sports a more modern interpretation of the ‘Tiger Nose’ grille, a hallmark of every Kia since the induction of Peter Schreyer as the design boss.”
Now, the Kia Cerato is available with the Shukran Oman offer. According to the Reliable International Automotive (RIA) spokesperson, “The Cerato comes with a cash gift of up to OMR1,300 in lieu of which a customer can opt for 1-year insurance, 5 years/50,000km (whichever is earlier) service and a cash gift of up to OMR800. One can also avail 1.99% interest on EMI available only for deals up to 24 months tenure and 2.99% on deals of 25 to 48 months.”
The spokesperson mentions the options for existing Kia customers, which are in the form of Lulu hypermarket vouchers that are receivable when any existing Kia customer takes delivery of a new Kia vehicle. Existing Kia customers also get additional service of 20,000km/2 years on taking delivery of new Kia vehicle.
“Let us also remember that Kia customers gain added Enayah points when they service their vehicles. Through these Enayah points, Kia customers are able to avail more facilities at a lesser price, such as Engine Flushing, Headlamp Polishing, A/C Blower Servicing, to name a few. Indeed, in Oman, Kia offers a wide-range of automobiles to suit many requirements. The range, backed by after sales, ‘Family-like Care’ has made the brand one of the top favourites,” says the spokesperson.
A Kia enthusiast remarked, “Kia’s unique offering to Kia owners reflects its 15 years of success in Oman. The many benefits make the Kia range even more attractive to buyers.” (Terms and conditions apply, and exact details can be had by visiting the Kia showroom.)
The offer makes the Cerato even more tempting to own. A potent car, the Cerato powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.0/1.6-litre petrol four-cylinder engine mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic. Cerato’s plush yet functional cabin is designed to last the test of time, with durable and long-life materials employed throughout the interior, as one proud owner said, “you get quite a lot for your money since it is quite commodious too, with great amounts of room up front and in the rear.
In Oman, Kia's lineup is formidable. According to a Kia spokesperson, a very large number of people are switching to Kia, “Kia is the newest and most exciting force of change in the automotive world and is ready to change the way people feel and think about driving. More than just a promise, Kia is committed to making driving a true pleasure for customers across the globe.
