For those in the market for a cheap, cheerful and competent second hand car, then looking at Kia cars is a sensible step. South Korea's second largest manufacturer, the cars are solid on economy, great on affordability and incredibly reliable.
Key attributes include:
Value for money
When Kia cars first hit the UK market, the models were excellent all-rounders. Today, there is a definite approach to introducing a touch of design and styling to proceedings. Packed full of excellent tech spec and with a look that enhances, it is good to see that used Kia cars are still so affordable.
The brand has also extended its range significantly over the years. Now producing excellent hot hatches, family sized SUVs and saloons, there is much to choose from. From the Forte to the Optima, all are strong models, though since appearing on the BBC’s Top Gear it is perhaps the Cee'd which remains a firm Brit favourite.
As they are well-made, owners rarely see any problems with their second hand Kia cars. With a full one-year guarantee*, there is even greater assurance.
