Where to get the best deal on a new Kia Rio?

I'm interested in buying a new Kia Rio, diesel, using the scrappage deal. What is the best price I should expect to get? And would I be better dealing with a main Kia dealer as opposed to an Opel dealer? The main dealer is a 40-minute drive from me.

Hi Kayleigh,

The Rio is very good value under the scrappage scheme so I can understand your interest in it. You are getting a five-door family car for €10,565 (excluding delivery and related charges) under the scheme:

The thing about scrappage is that the discount given by the Government is one part, the discount from the car firm is another; whether or not you will get further discount on top of this from the dealer is debatable. We will check in with Kia to see if you get the same level of discount from an Opel dealer - it may well be restricted to Kia outlets.

Let us come back to you on this one.

Hi Kayleigh,

We spoke to Kia today and they told us that there is no hard and fast rule about how much discount you are likely to get, but they did say that you should shop around within the network.

It is entirely possible that you would get the better deal from the Opel dealer, but my personal guess is that you would probably get the best deal from a Kia dealer.

As it is scrappage, I think few phonecalls should do it rather than actually having to visit all these places. Let us know how you go on and if we can help any more.
