As the closing of the government scrappage scheme approaches Kia have introduced a scheme named the ‘7 year Switch’. This offers owners of cars over seven years old the chance to trade up to a new Kia, take home a seven year warranty and save up to £2000 off the list price.
Kia customers could purchase a new Kia Soul for as little as £9495. Think of the Kia Soul as a supermini that looks and feels a bit 4x4. The Kia Soul offers the urban tough looks and upright driving position of a 4x4 with front wheel-drive underpinnings and fewer of the gas-guzzling connotations. Its spacious interior is well conceived and the diesel engine in particular looks a winner.
The compact Kia Picanto offers maximum practicality in a minimum sized package and with 7 Year Switch is only £5,135 on-the-road. Space within the Kia Picanto is quite useful for a small car; it is capable of taking four adults at a squeeze and has boot space of approximately 220 litres which will adapt to 882 litres with the rear seats folded. Most Kia Picanto’s are fitted with electric windows and mirrors with remote central locking for all four doors and the tailgate.
The scheme works in a similar way to the Government’s scrappage scheme and is open to cars between seven and 10 years old with a valid MOT certificate. Customers must have owned their cars for at least six months.
Like all good offers, the 7 Year Switch will not be around forever and only applies to new car orders taken up to the 31 March at participating dealers.
