, Senior Pricing Analyst - September 6, 2018

Offers on 2019 Kias have improved considerably, potentially lowering the advantage of choosing an older model. For example, rebates on the Sportage are now just $500 apart when deciding between a 2018 or 2019 model.

The recently-updated 2019 Forte gets a $750 bonus when coming from another Kia or competing vehicle. You can combine it with 0.9% financing for 60 months. Leases start at just $169/month.

Kia remains one of the few automakers not to hike interest rates across the board. Expect to find 0% financing on a variety of models like the Soul, Optima, Sportage and many more.

Offers end October 31, 2018. Most cashback promotions from Kia are available nationally. However, leases can vary depending on where you live. Examples listed below are for California.

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.
