Another big thanks to Enterprise, our short-term car rental partners, for allowing us to photograph the Kia OPTIMA DIESEL SPORTSWAGON 1.7 CRDi ISG 2 5dr Manual which they had on premises. Five years ago, Kia was probably a brand which scared most customers away.
As a brand Kia have invested considerable time and resources to dispel the image of this being a cheap or inferior product; in fact they offer an industry leading 7 year warranty on all new cars to support this. What really put Kia into the mix was the Kia Sportage, a cross-over SUV which has, over the last 5 years, been one of the most popular car options in the UK market. As a result, Kia have seen other cars in their brand continue to grow; the Rio, Ceed, Sorento and the Optima. Brands like Ford, Vauxhall and Mazda now face a significant threat with this South Korean entity.
In terms of the car shown, this is based on the following configuration:
· Solid – Midnight black
· Cloth – Black
· 17″ alloy wheels
As a company car option, this is a reasonable choice – P11d of £22,785.00 and CO2 of 113g/km. On the technical side, the 1685CC manual 6-speed engine deliver 64.2MPG combined, 0-60 times of 9.8 seconds and offers 139ps. For servicing, it’s every 12 months or 20,000 miles whichever is sooner. With these service intervals, you might want to consider a funder-maintained contract, which can include all servicing, maintenance and tyres.
Further, with the comprehensive warranty, it may be practical to ensure all servicing takes place at a Kia deal (although in some cases this is not a mandatory obligation). You might also want to consider the Kia as a long-term product, with the great warranty, and so a long-term purchase style product such has a Personal Contract Purchase might be something you want to add to the mix too!
