So far 2015 has been a record-breaking sales year for Kia Motors UK Ltd, fuelled by the introduction of new products and excellent value deals for retail and business customers alike. The brand is now looking to improve on this performance further by scrapping finance deposit requirements and improving its customer offers, including finance deals on Sportage and all-new Sorento.
From 1 October, customers won’t need to pay any deposit when taking up Kia’s already attractive 4.9 per cent APR and zero per cent PCP finance offers to purchase a new car. This applies across the entire range – from new Picanto up to the all-new Sorento – dramatically lowering the entry point of a brand-new Kia.
There are also bigger cash savings across a number of vehicles in the Kia range, starting with Kia’s small car range. The new Picanto and Rio have increased customer savings of up to £1,000. For instance, the entry-model Rio ‘1’ sees its customer saving go up by £800 to £1,000 whilst new Picanto’s mid-range ‘2’ now gets £1,000 off its on-the-road price, a saving increase of £500.
Kia’s mid-size vehicles are also included in on the deals. The cee’d, which sees its facelifted sibling launch in UK dealers today, now comes with a £2,000 customer saving on all models except ‘GT’ and ‘GT Tech’, up from £1,250 on grades ‘4’ and just £1,000 on other grades. The new generation cee’d is being launched with up to £750 customer saving and a PCP deposit contribution of £1,500.
Using finance to drive away in one of Kia’s SUV’s has also become easier. Not only is there no finance deposit requirement, but all Sportage 1.7 CRDi derivatives from the ‘2’ grade upwards now get a £1,200 PCP deposit contribution, up from £600 in September. The all-new Sorento also comes with a PCP deposit contribution for the first time since its launch, with £1,250 being available to customers entering into a low-rate 4.9 per cent APR PCP agreement.
Kia’s excellent Care-3 service plan, providing the first three services at a competitive price, continues to run throughout Q4. Specifically, ‘SR7’ models have this package for just £99 in October and November.
