Kia is South Korea's oldest car manufacturer and its first car, built in 1974, was actually the first car ever manufactured in Korea. Prior to producing cars, Kia made bicycles, motorbikes and trucks, and you might still see some of Kia's famous 3-wheeled trucks in Korea today.

A few years ago, spotting a Kia on the road was fairly rare, but these days it's a common sight. With their unique and instantly recognisable design, models like the compact Picanto and the practical Sedona are becoming increasingly desirable.

Below we’ve pulled together information on past and present Kia models. This also includes an average car insurance price for each car across different age groups. These prices are an average based on all specifications of that model, and all our customer quotes from 1/1/17 – 30/06/17. This includes different locations, driving background and other factors. Your own quote could be cheaper or more expensive depending on your personal circumstances.

Kia Carens 1999 - present

The Carens is the smaller of the two MPVs produced by Kia, and has been available in the UK since 2000. Seven seats now come as standard on new models, making it a great choice for bigger families.

On average, drivers between 36 and 40 could get insurance premiums for around £894*.

Read our review Kia Ceed 2006 - present

The Ceed was launched in 2007 and offered a seven-year warranty, which – at the time of the credit crunch – was a big selling point. 

The new version of the Ceed also comes with the same warranty. But is that enough to be ahead of the game in the small/medium hatchback category? As standard you get Bluetooth, air-con, and electric front windows. 

You can get insurance for this car around £752* if you’re aged between 26 and 35.

Kia Optima 2000 - present

New to UK roads in 2011, the Kia Optima is a family four-door saloon available with the Korean car manufacturer’s famous seven-year warranty.

With good looks, plenty of kit as standard, and a frugal diesel engine, this is Kia's effort to tempt people away from the Ford Mondeos and Vauxhall Insignias that dominate this area of the car market.

If you’re looking for insurance for the Optima and are aged 26 to 40, you could get premiums for around £587*.

Read our review Kia Picanto 2004 - present

Kia’s smallest car, the Picanto is a perfect city car. It’s instantly recognisable with its tiger-nose grille and big headlights.

If you opt to spend more and get the GT-Line S trim, you’ll be treated to a sat nav, heated seats and steering wheel, sunroof, Bluetooth and cruise control.

If you’re aged 31 – 45, you could get insurance for £665*.

Read our review Kia Rio 2000 - present

The Rio is an ideal car for city living. It has a low insurance group and small engine, which means – depending on your driver history – it should be fairly cheap to insure. Another benefit of having a small engine is that it also makes the Rio quite an economical car.

Drivers looking to insure the Rio will be looking at around £811* if you’re aged 26 to 30.

Read our review Kia Sorento 2002 - present

Kia's largest car, the Sorento, is pretty much what you'd expect from a 4x4 with extra features. This car features cruise control, MP3 connectivity and rear parking sensors as standard. It also comes with a lot of extras which other manufacturers sometimes make you pay separately for.

If you’re aged between 41 and 50, you could get insurance for £534*.

Kia Soul 2009 - present

Launched in 2009, you won’t see many Kia Souls on the streets of the UK. It’s aimed at a more youthful market, perhaps to compete with the likes of the Mini and Fiat 500. Any review you read of the Soul will comment on its distinctive look and will more than likely use the word ‘boxy’. 

The Soul is one of Kia's smaller cars. With a 1.6 engine, it'll be nippier than the Picanto, but has a higher insurance group and tax bracket. This shouldn't be an expensive car to insure, but isn't likely to be that cheap either.

Drivers aged between 26 and 30 will pay around £971* for insurance based on previous quote.

Read our review Kia Sportage 1993 - present

The Sportage SUV is In a market full of big names such as the Nissan Qashqai, Toyota RAV 4 and Honda CR-V.

Kia has tried to reduce running costs for the Sportage by giving the driver a bigger engine choice, including more efficient options and a new steering system. 

Depending on your circumstances, if you’re aged between 31 and 35 you could get premiums for £603*.

Read our review Kia Venga 2009 - present

The Venga is a small people carrier in the same spirit as the Renault Grand Modus and the Citroen C3 Picasso. Despite its small body size, the Venga has a fair bit of room inside. And the rear seats can be slid backwards and forwards to give more legroom or increase the boot space.

If you’re a young driver between 21 and 25, you could get insurance for around £971*.

Specification (10 onwards) Engine Size Typical Insurance Group** Tax Band**
