, Senior Pricing Analyst - January 14, 2019

Kia leases may seem nearly identical to last month, but the automaker has stretched nearly every model's contract to 39 months (36 months). This is typically a tactic used by brands trying to avoid raising prices. As before, offers continue to start at $169/month on the redesigned 2019 Forte.

Financing rates remain some of the most aggressive with 0% APR available on vehicles like the 2019 Optima, Soul, Sportage and Sorento. However, in many cases you may save more money in the long run by choosing rebates worth up to $3,500. Be sure to compare costs carefully.

Current offers end January 31, 2019. 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. Expect some sort of bonus next month for Presidents' Day on select models.

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.
