Kia might not be the most desirable brand on the market, but the South Korean manufacturer has been working hard since first entering the UK in 1991 to improve its image, as well as the quality of its cars.

And the good news is that Kias today rival the likes of Ford and Volkswagen on pretty much every model, and there are big savings to be made on the current range, including the Niro, Sportage, Rio, and Picanto.

And even better news is that you can expect to save thousands of pounds on some of these cars. There’s 25% off certain Ceeds at the moment, as well as nearly £6,000 off Kia’s first hybrid, the Niro, which will save you money in petrol too.

Most of the offers include incentives that are only available if you take out a manufacturer finance agreement, which are available at around 5% APR.

With these cost reductions, higher specification cars begin to become more affordable too. And Kias are generously equipped, meaning top-spec cars are brimming with new tech.

Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi ISG 2 

Save £2,699
•BuyaCar price £18,746 

• 17-inch alloy wheels • Sat nav • Automatic lights • Lane keep assistance

Save up to 14% with new Kia Sportage deals

The Kia Sportage regularly features in the top-10 best-selling cars in the UK list, so you will have most likely have seen one on the road. Its bold design and impressive seven-year warranty has won its fair share of fans, who are keen on its value for money.

It’s a big car with a big boot too. It sports 491-litres’ worth of capacity, which out ranks the Ford Kuga (406 litres) and the Nissan Qashqai (430 litres).

We’d recommend the 1.7 CRDi in ‘2’ trim. The diesel engine has low running costs, plus in this trim it has niceties like a sat nav, reversing camera, and even a chilled glovebox. These are available to buy with a useful £2,699 off the retail price, dipping just under the £19,000 mark.

Kia Picanto 1.25 2 

Save £1,446
•BuyaCar price £9,904

• Seven year warranty • Low running costs • Cheap insurance • Bluetooth

Save up to 17% with new Kia Picanto deals

The Picanto is the smallest in Kia’s range of cars - and if you haven’t seen one in real life, it’s of a similar size to the Volkswagen up! and Toyota Aygo. Kia’s offering is short and squat, making it look robust.

It’s built to a budget on the inside with some hard plastics, but it’s no worse than any other car in this segment. Fuel economy is strong though - some models will get around 50mpg.

The engine to go for is the 1.25 - it’s official mpg is only a few off the smaller petrol engine, but it’s much better to use day to day, and is a lot quicker too. Go for ‘2’ trim, as it helps keep the costs down, but still gets amenities like Bluetooth and alloy wheels.

Kia Ceed 1.0T GDi GT-Line

Save £4,303
•BuyaCar price £16,277

• Electric seats • Blind spot monitoring • Heated steering wheel • Alloy wheels

Save up to 26% with new Kia Ceed deals

Just to clear up any confusion, the Ceed used to be known as the Cee’d, but Kia thought that it was silly so changed it to a less confusing spelling. Now that that’s cleared up, we can tell you that there’s a new Ceed coming later this year.

This means that there are some serious savings to be had at the moment on the current car. As mentioned above, some cars will come with more than 25% off the retail price.

Our pick of the bunch, the 1.0T GDI, is great for families, and is best suited to town driving. GT Line brings all the bells and whistles, plus, big alloys and minor cosmetic changes that really lift the appearance of the Ceed.

Kia Niro 1.6 GDI PHEV 3

Save £5,874
•BuyaCar price £24,621

• Low emissions • Android Auto • Wireless phone charging • 18-inch alloy wheels

Save up to 24% with new Kia Niro deals

It doesn’t look like a hybrid does it? For some, that is a major reason that you’d buy a Kia Niro. The Niro is Kia’s answer to the Prius, albeit in a crossover shape.

What is a hybrid?

Inside there’s space for five adults, the gearbox is smooth, and the ride is mostly comfortable, although it isn’t the most involving car out there. The Niro is great around town as the stop-start nature gives the chance for the batteries to regenerate, giving you more juice. We’d recommend the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) as this has an (official) electric range of 36 miles on battery alone. That’s surely enough for the school runs in the morning. Top spec 3 models get 18-inch alloy wheels and an 8-inch touchscreen entertainment system.

Kia Rio 1.0 T-GDi 100PS

Save £2,564
•BuyaCar price £12,471

• Seven year warranty • Stop start technology • Alloy wheels • Reversing camera

Save up to 21% with new Kia Rio deals

The Rio might not be anywhere near as sexy as the city from which it derives its name, but it is dependable and usefully cheaper than its main rival, the Ford Fiesta, especially with these deals.

All models come with high equipment levels, and expect to find Bluetooth, air conditioning, and LED daytime running lights of all models. Inside the interior quality is good too, with plenty of soft to touch plastics, while in the back, the boot (325 litres) is bigger than the Skoda Fabia, Ford Fiesta, and Volkswagen Polo.

There are four engines on offer - three petrols, and one diesel. The diesel is fine if you cover a lot of miles, but the petrol choice is odd as the 1.25-litre and 1.4-litre offer very little in terms of power over the 1.0-litre, but the 1.0-litre is more economical. That’s why you should pick the littlest engine, and team it with ‘2’ specification. These models start at less than £12,500.
