Kia free servicing offer takes the sting out of running a Stinger

Kia StingerKia has revealed its latest money-saving new car offers for the summer, which are headlined by a free servicing deal that takes the sting out of running a Stinger.

On the diesel model, the first three services are offered for free – and it’s even better for the 244hp 2.0-litre turbo petrol and 365hp 3.3-litre V6 turbo petrol, because they get six free services.

This effectively deals with one of the less positive aspects of the Stinger: it’s surprisingly short service intervals. The diesel needs a dealer visit every 10,000 miles (or 12 months), and the petrol cars are even shorter – just 6,000 miles (or six months!) between services.

Kia’s offer doesn’t overcome the inconvenience of this, but it does deal with the cost implications of the car’s retro-style maintenance schedule. A low-rate 4.9 percent APR PCP deal continues on the Stinger too, with up to £750 deposit contribution from Kia.

The firm has also confirmed the continuation of its Kia Scrappage Scheme inventive for retail car buyers. This deal is also tied in with a 4.9 percent APR finance offer, and gives a £2,000 saving on the Picanto, Rio and Stonic (pictured above). All you have to do is hand over a car aged seven years or older.

If you don’t have a seven-year-old car you’ve owned for at least three months, but really want to save money on a new Kia, fear not. Other models are available on a 4.9 percent APR PCP with deposit contributions: £1,500 on the Stonic, up to £1,500 on the (pre-facelift) Kia Sportage and £500 on the Niro hybrid.

Speaking of which, Kia’s also offering anyone who test-drives one of its hybrid models an extra £1,000 off the list price if they then go on to buy one. The deal is valid on the Niro Hybrid, Niro Plug-in Hybrid and Optima Plug-in Hybrid.
