Kia car insurance rates
What to expect when insuring a Kia, and the insurers that could cover you.
Kia is South Korea’s second largest motoring company after Hyundai and has been manufacturing cars since the 1940s.
All its cars come with a whopping seven-year warranty and there’s a large range of affordable models to suit every budget – from its tiny Kia Picanto to the bigger Kia Sorento. The Kia Sportage is one of the most popular car models on British roads and accounts for 40% of all Kia sales in the UK.

What’s the average insurance cost for a Kia?
The insurance cost for a Kia varies greatly depending on the model you select and your own circumstances. For the Kia Sportage, the most popular Kia model on UK roads, we ran quotes and found the average was £712.37 annually or £69.27 a month for fully comprehensive cover with no optional extras. Your actual cost will be more or less, depending on your driving record and the number of miles you drive in a year as well as other factors.
