I am looking to buy a new car for the first time. Currently looking for a reliable hatchback with good boot size with 26-30 K budget for a couple with 3 yrs kid for mainly city commute.
Both variant cars are 1 step upgraded than their base model option. Upon checking prices on their websites I found
Subaru Impreza 2.0i-L AWD Hatch - $ 29,960 Driveaway with 5 yrs warranty
Kia Cerato Sport - $27,990 Drive Away with 7 yrs Warranty
I am just confused about which car to go for. Both cars seem similar in shape and size in the hatch version with decent boot size. Kia 7 yrs warranty seems attractive over Subaru's 5 yrs warranty and I guess Kia Cerato is loaded with much more new features than Impreza whereas I found Impreza is AWD and is more fuel-efficient than Kia Cerato. I haven't tested both cars yet. I am based in Melbourne and don't know when lockdown opens. I need some suggestions if someone has tried these cars. How's the overall driving experience for both cars ??
Have anyone bought these cars recently how much have you paid, Is the Price the same as indicated on the website or any discounts at the moment ?? Which car would you recommend ??
