In the crowded market of family SUVs, the Sportage’s sleek design gives it that extra edge. This Kia model is a great option that bridges the gap between comfort and cool.
The Kia Picanto is one of the mainstays of this automobile brand, loved by many drivers across the country. It won the What Car? award for 'Best Used City Car' in 2019, showing just how amazing this model truly is.
The Kia Picanto is an outstanding car for urban driving, with its sleek hatchback design well suited to zipping in and out of busy traffic. It comes in two different engine sizes: a 1.0 litre or a 1.25 litre, so it's better matched for city living.

The Kia Niro is an amazing estate car for those looking to be more sustainable. If you opt for the Niro, you’ll have the choice of either a hybrid or a plug-in hybrid.
If you opt for the hybrid-only version, it’s powered by a petrol engine, as well as a small battery and electric motor, which reallocate energy that would normally be lost from the car.
The plug-in hybrid model is similar but has a larger battery that can be plugged in to charge, allowing you to travel for up to 30 miles without petrol. As well as being more suitable for the environment, this can help you to save money that would otherwise be spent on fuel.

Kia has built up a fantastic reputation over the years, based on its strong core values, as well as its limitless capacity for innovation in design and technology. This innovation includes their commitment to adding high-end gadgets and car safety features – many of which are fitted as a standard.
Kia’s wide range of vehicles means that, no matter your needs, you’ll have plenty of choice.
Or do you want a more affordable family hatchback that has an amazing safety record? The Kia Ceed is perfect for you.
For something a little more majestic, you should check out the Kia Stinger Saloon - these luxurious cars are perfect for long-distance travel. If you're sustainably minded, the Kia EV6 is an all-electric vehicle that took home the ‘Car of the Year' gong at the prestigious 2022 What Car? Awards.
Kias are also extremely reliable and were ranked in the number one spot for the 2022 J. D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS), so you really can't go wrong with this modern car brand! Their combination of values, style, performance and safety is perfectly tuned for today’s drivers. Kias are cars for customers who are interested in more than just bland statistics.
Whichever model you choose to go for, you're sure to find yourself feeling extremely happy with your lease! But if you need a little more encouragement, we've listed some of the main benefits of choosing to lease a Kia below:
Kia has a unique business management philosophy that embraces full accountability, realising potential and practising humanity.
These three key phrases are encapsulated in the following mantra: ‘Building a new future and realising humanity's dreams by thinking creatively and tackling challenges head-on.’
The Kia team are also well-known for their core values:
Placing the customer first at all times
Communication and collaboration
Respecting talent and developing potential
With a company founded on such rock-solid ethics creating exceptional cars, the sky really is the limit - the brand is expected to continue its meteoric rise over the coming years.
Kia's range of cars is designed with impeccable style in mind. According to the brand’s top designer, Peter Schreyer, ‘it’s all about the simplicity of the straight line.’
Running your hand over the simplistic curves and delicate creases on any Kia model will remind you of those words. There’s nothing aggressive, complex or 'shouty’ about this car brand, making it a suitable accompaniment to any journey.
Everything works well together - it’s understated and evocative, but that's all part of the charm.
Kia is one of the few car manufacturers who cater to every type of driver - so whilst their cars may not be sports cars, they still have their own unique beauty. You can choose from a range of different trims and colours, giving you a high degree of customisation with your lease car and allowing you to express your individuality in style.
For those of you that want something a little more flash, the Stinger is perfect, available in a classic saloon style. It's designed to compete with the more expensive luxury brands, with the opulent leather interior showing that this is one car that looks good, inside and out!
Safety is another cornerstone of the Kia range. With models performing so consistently well, the brand has developed an excellent reputation for both safety and reliability. For many years running, Kia has been voted as one of the safest car brands across the car market.
The majority of their cars have been granted a five-star safety rating from the American NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Administration), as well as the European organisation Euro NCAP (the European New Car Assessment Programme).
The Sportage model has also ranked particularly highly for safety within Europe, making it the perfect car to lease for those with a more safety-conscious mind.
There are several features that make Kias so safe to drive, making them worthwhile cars to lease - particularly if you have a young family that will be using your car a lot. One of the main factors here is the way they're made, with their focus on a strong body design having a great impact on safety.
Kias tend to do well on crashworthiness scores - crashworthiness refers to how much the car retains its shape during an accident. Again, their design can take credit here, with approximately 30% of the body made from ultra-high tensile steel - one of the strongest forms of steel in production at the moment. Kias are therefore more likely to retain their shape in the event of impact.r.
Kia also integrates an ever-expanding range of driver-assist technologies in their vehicles, helping you to anticipate and prevent accidents. The Kia DriveWise system is the company's flagship enterprise and includes assistance features like:
DriveWise helps to protect passengers, pedestrians and other drivers, making it a great driving assistant for any British driver.
There are many reasons to lease a car instead of using finance or buying one. We've created this handy section so you can see if leasing is the right option for you.

The chief benefit of leasing a car is that it allows you to drive new vehicles without having to pay the full cost upfront - you can also easily swap to another new car after a few years. With most finance types, there's often an expectation for the driver to purchase the car at the end of the process.
However, when you lease a car, you can give the car back after the entire lease period has ended. Once your lease has ended, you can either renew your contract or open a new one if you fancy an upgrade..
With leasing, you also don't need to worry about selling the car at the end of the lease period and there is no large initial cost at the start. You often have to pay a deposit when you buy a car outright, which is not applicable when you lease.
Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) is a tax required for all vehicles that produce emissions, levied by the British government. The amount you pay depends on the vehicle you drive - cars with lower emissions typically have a lower rate of VED to be paid each year.
The registered keeper is required to pay VED each year - however, when a car is leased, it technically belongs to the leasing company. Because of this, most hired cars will come with the tax pre-paid as part of your monthly rental. You should double-check this before leasing your car, as it's illegal to drive without the VED being paid.
You'll usually need to pay for your own insurance, although some leasing companies may pay for it - again, this is something you need to check. At LeaseCar, we offer a 'Total Care' service, which includes insurance.
When you start a Kia lease deal with us, you'll also get a warranty as part of the package, covering repairs to the vehicle.
The length of the warranty will depend on the manufacturer and the package you go for, but it’ll usually cover you for a span between one and five years.
A warranty protects you from any manufacturing faults that occur from mechanical failure - so if you have an accident and damage is caused, you'll usually need to go through your insurance instead.
There are three main types of warranty on the market::
A manufacturer's warranty - This type of warranty is included with new cars. As all our cars are classed as new, you should get a manufacturer's warranty, which will usually cover you until the lease ends. You may only be covered up to a certain mileage, so it's important to read the terms and conditions before applying for a lease.
An after-market warranty - An after-market warranty is usually provided by a third-party company after the original manufacturer's warranty has expired. It's typically taken out on older cars, particularly if you're looking to purchase your car after the lease has expired. There may be certain servicing and mileage terms to adhere to in order for the warranty to stay valid.
Breakdown cover - The last option you can take out is breakdown cover. This will usually be through a company like The AA or Green Flag, offering roadside assistance and breakdown cover. Some manufacturers also offer breakdown services - Kia offers their own roadside assistance service system. Most companies will only cover you for mechanical failures and you'll often need to upgrade the policy to cover you further away from home, so this is something else you need to research first.
When you decide to lease a car from LeaseCar, a warranty will be included. To find out more about our warranties, contact us and we'll be able to advise accordingly.
Before deciding on a Kia lease deal, it’s important to understand what leasing is and how it differs from car finance. Understandably nowadays, less and less people are buying vehicles outright, instead choosing to use a finance or leasing option - this can often be more viable financially, as it means you don't need to pay the full amount upfront and have easy access to upgrades.
There are several different types of finance, but the main gist of it is that you make monthly payments over a set period of time, with the ultimate aim being to own the car at the end of it. If you lease a car, however, you don't own the car at the end of the period - in this way, leasing is more like renting.
A third option that combines the two exists, known as PCP (Personal Contract Leasing). PCP is technically a finance lease, in which the car is hired for several years. At the end of this period of time, you can choose to either give the car back or pay what is known as a 'balloon payment', allowing you to pay the final outstanding sum and keep it.

One of the first things to do before applying for a lease is to make sure that you're actually eligible. Every company will have different rules - at LeaseCar, we consider a wide range of circumstances when deciding whether or not to grant a car lease.
Whilst you can legally drive a car at the age of 17, most financial institutions won't allow you to use their services until you're at least 18. You'll also need a good credit report to lease a car. Younger people are less likely to have built up a credit score, so this may also affect you, depending on your age and financial circumstances.
However, most providers will take into account the whole picture, including your income and your debt history. Whilst we do offer leasing deals to younger customers, some of our products have a minimum age limit of 23 - for example, our leasing and insurance service. There's also a maximum age limit of 67 for our leasing and insurance service - however, there isn't an upper age limit for our general leasing packages.
