Spending as little as possible on a Cerato will get you a Cerato S, which has a radio and CD player, cloth seat trim, and 16-inch steel wheels with plastic covers.
The Cerato S with AV loses the CD player but gains a reversing camera, displayed on a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen. You also get support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay – which allow you to display apps from your phone on the touchscreen and control them from there. Automatic transmission is standard.
Spend more for a Cerato Sport and you lose the CD player but gain a reversing camera, displayed on a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen. You also get satellite navigation, and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay – which allow you to display apps from your phone on the touchscreen and control them from there. Your headlamps switch on automatically at night or in tunnels. The steering wheel is wrapped, for a nicer feel, and there is leather-look trim on the instrument-cluster. Wheels are made from aluminium alloy, which looks nicer and does not need the plastic trim, and they are an inch bigger at 17 inches. Tyres are lower in profile and slightly wider, for a bit more cornering grip and precision.
A Sport+ model was introduced as the new top-of-the-range Cerato in the second half of 2017, replacing the SLi. It has a few extras over the Sport specification including automatic folding door mirrors, puddle lights and chrome exterior highlights.
Inside, the Sport+ gains an electrochromatic rear view mirror, which automatically dims so you’re not dazzled by the headlights of the car behind you, leather appointed seats, powered driver’s seat lumbar support, sliding centre console armrest, paddle shifters, rear air vents and carbon fibre-look trim inserts.
