A sign of greatness.

The New Cerato continues to build on its reputation for sharp, flowing design and athletic performance, introducing more innovations to its already impressive resume. The ultra-modern cabin is spacious, driver-focused, and firmly immersed in the digital world with the latest generation of infotainment.

Available in two distinct body styles—an athletic hatchback and sleek sedan—the new Cerato is the first model in Australia to sport our new logo. It's a sign of great things to come.
