Kia Car Insurance


Kia is South Korea’s second-largest car manufacturer, after Hyundai. Since arriving in the UK in 1991 Kia has sold more than half-a-million cars here.

Kia manufactures budget-priced estates, hatchbacks, MPVs, saloons and 4X4 SUVs. The cheapest car in the range is the Kia Picanto 5-door hatchback, named Bargain Car of the Year by Top Gear magazine in 2011. The most expensive is the 7-seater Kia Sorento SUV.

Kia has won praise for its environmental efforts, including a What Car? Ultra-Low Carbon award for the low CO2 emissions of its cars. It was the first car manufacturer to provide a seven-year warranty on all its new cars, beating the standard three- and five-year offers. There’s also a seven-year warranty on Kia-approved used cars.
