  • £2,000 Scrappage Scheme on all-new Picanto and Rio models
  • Free home charging point and installation on PHEV’s and EV models
  • Free upgrade from Optima Saloon to Optima Sportswagon continues

Kia Motors (UK) Limited is pleased to announce its amazing offers available for customers looking to buy a Kia in the remaining months of 2017.

Launched in September and running to the 31 December, the Kia Scrappage Scheme is worth £2,000 to motorists wanting to switch a car over seven years old for an all-new Picanto or an all-new Rio. The £2,000 scrappage bonus is available on Kia’s latest small cars when any old car is traded in for destruction. The bonus is available with 4.9% APR finance but is in lieu of all other offers and on retail sales only.

For customers wanting to ‘go green’ and buy a Soul EV, Niro PHEV or Optima PHEV’s Kia are offering a free home charging point and installation at no cost – ensuring that your car is fully charged when you need it.

For customers who cannot decide between the Optima Saloon and the all-new Sportswagon, a free upgrade will be available, making both cars available at the same list price from 1 October to 31 December 2017.

All-new Picantos are available with 4.9 per cent PCP and deposit contribution between £500 and £750. All-new Rio customers can also benefit from 4.9 per cent PCP with a deposit contribution between £1,250 and £1,500.


Notes to editor:

The Kia Scrappage Scheme requires no special measures by customers – as long as the details of the old vehicle owner and the new Kia buyer match the bonus is guaranteed. The Kia dealer will complete all the paperwork and arrange for the old vehicle to be destroyed through regulated and established channels. The scheme runs until the end of December 2017. There is no additional trade-in value of the car to be scrapped.

Offers available from 1 October to 31 December 2017 for private registrations only – excludes PCH.
