Kia cars on DesperateSeller.co.uk

Kia is being taken a whole lot more seriously today than it once was. The marque will have first come to the attention of most UK motorists as a producer of resoundingly average family cars with lots of equipment and temptingly low price tags. On the used car market, these vehicles are even more affordable but second hand car buyers in the know will happily pay a little extra for Kia's more recent efforts.

A historic view on Kia

It's not there yet but Kia has designs on mainstream respectability and its recent models haven't been far from achieving that goal. Older Kias such as the Rio, Carens and Magentis were cheap and cheerful while models like the Picanto city car, the 2006 Sedona MPV and the 2003 Sorento 4x4 gained a cult following and are well worth seeking out as used cars. The marque's more competitive efforts began with the cee'd family hatch of 2007 vintage, a model which stands comparison with the likes of the Ford's Focus and Vauxhall's Astra. Three-door pro_cee'd versions are also available and worth searching out as used cars. Pre-owned versions of the Sportage 4x4 that was launched in 2007 are also worthwhile, as are second hand examples of the Kia Soul (an SUV-styled 2WD family hatchback with attitude) which arrived in early 2009. The majority of modern Kia models were accompanied by a 7-year warranty which will do much to prop-up residual values and encourage motorists to consider buying a used Kia.
