Kia introduces new car discounts

Kia has designed the offer to beat the new 20 per cent of VAT by offering at least £2,000 off a new car when an older model is traded in.

The Korean car maker’s industry-leading seven year warranty has been extended, allowing any car older than the seven years to be traded for a Picanto city car or Rio supermini.

The ‘Kia Switch’ offer also applies to the Kia cee’d, pro_cee’d and larger models including the new Kia Sportage.

This would result in a new Picanto costing from £5,370 and a Rio priced from £6,540 with a choice of specifications available.

For cars to qualify for the new trade-in offer, it must have less than 100,000 miles on the clock, have a valid MOT and have been owned by the customer for more than six months.

However, if there is no car to trade-in, Kia has reduced the price of the Rio to £7,995 for the entry level ‘1’ model with a 1.4-litre engine. This rises to £8,995 for a range-topping model.

Other models in the range, such as the Kia cee’d have been reduced by up to £500 as part of Kia’s ‘Access 7’ saving scheme.

To complete the February offers, Kia is also offering £1,000 saving on the price of its two largest cars, the Carens SUV and Sedona MPV. Both models will be offered with a transferrable seven-year warranty on top of the savings.

The new Kia deals, including the ‘Kia Switch’ offer, are available from all Kia dealerships in the UK.

This includes Perrys dealerships in Burnley, Preston and Rotherham, who specialise in Kia cars and aftersales care.
