In a very short time Kia has managed to introduce its models in all vehicle segments, from the entry-level Picanto to the Sportage, a SUV with front or four-wheel drive. It's a brand that offers quality and design at a good price, plus a 7-year transferable warranty, ideal when you buy a second-hand Kia; come and meet us.
The Kia company is relatively modern, founded in 1944 in South Korea, and in its beginnings was dedicated to the assembly of motorbikes, although it did not take long to build vehicles for other brands such as Mazda, Peugeot and Fiat. It ended up building together with Ford and Mazca a common model adapted to each brand, but with its own engine, the Kia Pride.
Among the most requested models are:
The Kia Picanto is the entry-level compact city model, and it's also one of the best cars in its segment. It drives very well and maintenance costs are very low, making it the car of choice for many new drivers. It is cheap new, but there are some great deals to be found on second-hand cars.
Inside the car, everything is neat and tidy and everyone who sits in a Kia and knows the price is surprised. The seats are comfortable and although the depth of the steering wheel cannot be adjusted, the driving position is relaxed, pleasant and well placed, which helps in manoeuvres where you need to be aware of the size of the car and have a good view.
If you're looking for an economical, small and manoeuvrable car for city driving, the Kia Picanto is one of the best options. If you choose the most basic option, you'll save a lot of money but you won't get an infotainment system, as well as other extras that could be interesting. In the end it all depends on your budget and what you are willing to spend, the good thing about the Kia Picanto is that it offers you all kinds of possibilities to get one.
The boot has a capacity of 255 litres and although the rear seats can't be folded down completely, they will give you some extra space that can be very useful.
As for the engine, the most basic option is a 1.0 petrol engine with 67 bhp, which, although it sounds like a small engine, feels agile and responsive when you step on the accelerator. If you want more response without spending too much, the 84 PS 1.25 engine might be a better option; those who want the most power available can look at the 100 PS 1.0 T-GDi 1.0. Remember that this car is a lightweight city compact, so a slight variation in power output will be noticeable on the road. If you have any doubts about which one is best for you, the best thing to do is to contact our sales consultant in Malaga.
Alternatives to the Kia Picanto could be the Seat Panda, Hyundai i10 or the Volkswagen Up!

The Kia Ceed is a highly reliable family car with a generous level of standard equipment. Its rivals would be the Golf or Ford Focus, although unlike these the Kia Ceed offers a transferable warranty of up to 7 years or 150,000 kilometres, so if you decide to buy a Kia Ceed, depending on the year of manufacture it is very likely that this warranty will still apply.
It's a car designed for European driving, so it's well suited to our roads. Its steering feels precise at high speeds, whether in town or around corners. It grips the road very well and its wheelbase gives it stability on motorways and dual carriageways. The exterior of the Kia Ceed is attractive, with modern lines that streamline its profile and set it apart from the competition, giving it its own personality.
There are petrol engines, with an average of 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres, or diesel with 3.9 litres/100 km for those who drive more kilometres per year. Standard equipment includes Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, electric front windows and six airbags. Higher versions can include rear parking sensors and satellite navigation.
When we sit in the Kia Ceed we can see how spacious the cabin is. Not only are the front seats spacious, the rear seats have a centre console with cup holders and ventilation. A key feature is the practicality of the doors, all of which offer generous storage space that can even hold a bottle of water. If you want a car you can travel with, this Kia Ceed is the car for you.
The boot has 380 litres of luggage capacity, but if you fold down the rear seats the space increases to 1318 litres, even more than other brands in this segment.
Alernatives to the Kia Ceed are the Ford Focus, Opel Astra, Volkswagen Golf or Hyundai i30.

Kia Sportage is the South Korean brand's most popular crossover model and it comes with a good price-quality ratio, even more accentuated in second-hand models. The price makes it stand out from its competitors, but is there more to it? Let's take a closer look.
The Kia brand offers a 7-year transferable warranty or up to 150,000 kilometres, so if you buy a used Sportage, it's likely that you'll still have this warranty active. Standard equipment is quite comprehensive and those who want a fully equipped Sportage can look at the GT-Line series, which offers top-of-the-range luxuries such as air-conditioning in the seats.
It is a practical vehicle with an elevated driving position and ample space for rear-seat passengers. The boot capacity, at 491 litres, is large enough for almost any use; if you want to expand it by folding down the seats, the boot can hold up to 1480 litres.
With 134 hp, it achieves an average fuel consumption of 5.43 litres per 100 kilometres. If you are looking for a quality vehicle, with good finishes and good value for money, you should consider the Kia Sportage.
Alternatives to the Kia Sportage would be the Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga or Volkswagen Tiguan among others. If you would like to know more models that are similar or that fit your budget, don't hesitate to contact us.

Not only does the Kia Stonic have a powerful and efficient engine, but it also comes with a lot of equipment as standard, which is always welcome. Those looking for a compact crossover may find it in this Kia model, but let's get to know it a little better. What does it offer?
The driving position is slightly lower than other cars in its segment, which makes for a more secure driving position. Inside, the interior has a premium feel, with a touchscreen display and connectivity with both Apple Car and Android Auto. The boot has a capacity of 352 litres, but when the rear seats are folded down, this increases to 1155 litres, which can save us from more than one situation in which we need to transport large items.
Depending on the year, a rear-view camera may be fitted as standard. What they all seem to come with is a parking sensor, which is great for easy parking in the city.
Fuel consumption is between 5 and 6 litres per 100 kilometres, depending on whether you opt for the diesel or petrol version.
Other alternatives to the Kia Stonic are Renault Captur, Seat Arona, Nissan Juke or the Suzuki Vitara.

Hybrid cars are trendy, and many people feel their budget is not enough to afford one. The Kia Niro comes with a refreshingly affordable offer, especially when you pick one up on the second-hand market. Is it worth it? Let's take a look at some of the basics of this car.
As a baseline, the Kia Niro is a hybrid car that is priced well in comparison to the competition, especially when you consider the generous standard equipment and Kia's own 7-year transferable warranty. This warranty will give you peace of mind when buying, especially second-hand, where this car shines most at a discounted price.
The interior is attractive and comfortable and the boot capacity of up to 382 litres should be sufficient for almost any use. The rear seats seat 2 adults comfortably, so space is not an issue.
Fuel consumption is around 4 litres per 100 kilometres and 141 hp is more than enough for agile, purposeful driving in all situations.
Alternatives to Kia Niro would be the Toyota C-HR, Opel Grandland X or the Opel 2008 among the electric cars. If you are open to not hybrid possibilities, the Kia Sportage, Seat Ateca or Nissan Qashqai could also be an option to consider.

Have you decided to buy a second hand Kia in Malaga, but you are not sure what to consider? We can advise you from the very first moment if you need it, for now we leave you with a mini-buying guide:
1. Check the condition of the car
The first thing to consider in any pre-owned car purchase is the condition of the car, feel free to look at the used Kia with a microscope and ask the seller for details of the vehicle. If there's nothing to hide, he'll answer your questions and clear up any doubts. In our case we check every Kia in our own workshop before we put it up for sale, so we have complete confidence in what we sell.
You can't visually check the condition of the car because the second-hand Kia you like is not in your province? Then the best thing to do is to buy it from a trusted second hand dealer. From Malaga we offer you all the guarantees and we can also deliver it to your home for free if you live in the peninsula.
2. Ask for discounts
Before you buy the car make sure there are no discounts, it is possible that we have another used Kia in stock with a few more kilometres on it, which will reduce the price. Also, if you finance with us to pay for the car comfortably on a monthly basis, we will give you a nice extra discount.
3. What to do if the budget is not enough?
In addition to the aforementioned discounts and asking for a similar Kia with more kilometres, we offer you a personalised payment plan. You can have your car from day one and pay a convenient monthly instalment. If you want, we can also buy your used car and discount the price of your new Kia.
4. Trust is key
Some dealers prioritise getting rid of their stock as quickly as possible, no matter what. We aim to service for a long time, which is why we thoroughly check every Kia we put up for sale. A happy customer will come back, while an unhappy one will not only not come back, but will not recommend us.
We hope the Kia will last you many years, but if you decide to trade it in in the future, we want to be your first choice again.
