Kia cars for young drivers

Kia Picanto


Kia is a Korean brand that prides themselves on delivering well-made quality cars that are of excellent value. The confidence that Kia has in the reliability of their cars is backed up by an un-rivalled seven-year warranty which covers you for (yes you’ve guessed it!) seven years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first). There’s not many other manufacturers that would be willing to put such a stamp to their name.

Best known for making ultra-reliable cars that are built to last, Kia are top notch for value and are propelled by their love of technology. As a result of offering more for less, you’ll find most models well kitted out with features and tech that you may have only expected to find on more expensive luxury brands.

Best known for...

Kia has become more popular in recent years in the UK and their wide range of small cars is bound to offer something to suit you. The smallest model – The Picanto has been a constant hit since it was launched in 2011. This fab little city car has very low running costs and is environmentally sound. It’s had various facelifts over the years so it looks bang up to date with a sporty new look.

Their dedication to technology means Kia doesn’t scrimp on kit on any of its models and the Picanto has plenty to offer including sat-nav and upgraded audio systems on the top end versions.

The unbeatable warranty that Kia offers gives a huge sense of peace of mind to any new car buyer and this market-leading deal is only helping to improve Kia’s popularity in the UK.

Frequently asked questions

What is a guarantor?arrow
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?arrow
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
How does the insurance work?arrow
For the majority of cars 12 months’ black box insurance is included in the deal. If, for any reason, we’re unable to offer you 12 months’ insurance, we’ll offer a contribution towards your policy with Marmalade and let you know how much you need to pay, or we’ll give you a cashback to help you get cover elsewhere.
Where your car will be covered by Marmalade black box insurance, we’ll send you a small device to fit the windscreen of your car and ask you to download our driving app. This measures how you’re driving and lets you keep an eye on your driving score. You’ll be pleased to know our safest drivers can earn a safe driving discount at renewal - in addition to any No Claims Discount earned.
What happens after the first year?arrow
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
How long until I get my new car?arrow
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
