, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 8, 2018

Special offers from Kia continue mostly unchanged for January. Many models like the Forte, Optima, Soul and Sportage now feature a choice between attractive rebates or 0% financing.

Leases start at just $139/month in the case of the 2017 Forte. However, a recent addition is a $199/month lease on the 2018 Sorento L that ranks as one of the cheapest leases on a midsize SUV.

Current offers end February 28, 2018. Most cashback promotions from Kia are available nationally. However, leases can vary depending on where you live. Payments below are based on a California location.

We think there's a good chance that deals will improve for Presidents' Day and involve some sort of bonus cash or financing incentive. Check back for updates.

Tips on Kia Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

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.
