, Senior Pricing Analyst - November 1, 2018

Special offers for buying or leasing a Kia have shifted to favor 2019 models. Last year's vehicles have largely sold out, with some exceptions. If you can still find one, 2018 Stingers are eligible for up to $4,000 in savings when choosing an all-wheel drive GT trim and if you're coming from a competitor.

Prefer a family-friendly SUV? The 2019 Sorento features a $500 bonus this month that can be stacked with a rebate worth up to $3,000. However, that amount drops to $2,000 when choosing an L or LX trim. Still, that's up to $3,500 in potential savings on most styles.

Financing rates from Kia continue to be aggressive next to competitors. For example, the restyled Forte is eligible for 0.9% APR for 60 months plus a $750 bonus for Kia owners or for those coming from a competing brand. Since there aren't any rebates yet, financing could be a no-brainer.

Current offers end November 30, 2018. Most of the cashback deals listed below are available nationally. However, leases can vary depending on where you live. Examples listed here are for California.

Insider Tips for Kia Shoppers

Kia reliably offers a wide range of deals ranging from cashback to low-interest financing and lease specials. One of the more popular promotions is zero percent financing. However, unlike other manufacturers like Toyota, you may not see the same degree of 0% offers when it comes to 72-month loans.

In contrast, Kia often features zero percent APR for terms of up to 66 months. Be sure to consider the added benefit of what's called a finance bonus. In most cases, this ranges up to $1,000 and is a lot like a signing bonus. Other automakers make you choose between special financing and rebates, so this can be a nice alternative.

Looking to buy around a holiday? It's generally safe to expect Kia to introduce a holiday bonus worth around $500 on popular models like the Forte, Optima and Sorento. We usually see offers like this emerge in the week or two leading up to holidays like July Fourth, Labor Day among others.
