Kia raises prices in South Africa – Before and after

Kia has increased pricing for all its models in South Africa in line with the manufacturer’s regular product pricing reviews.

These annual adjustments are generally made due to changes in areas such as inflation, raw material costs, model features, model cycle lifestage, profitability margins, and competitor comparisons.

The vehicles with the biggest price hikes were the Carnival minivan and Sorento seven-seater SUV, which both saw the addition of R9,000 to their window stickers across the board.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Picanto hatchback experienced the smallest increase to the tune of R2,000, however, for the two range-topping Picanto X-Line models, the hikes came out to R10,000 a piece.

Fortunately, the diesel-powered Sportage that was launched just a few weeks ago was not made more expensive, further increasing the appeal of the more fuel-efficient powertrain.

It’s also worth noting that the popular Rio is still listed for now, but it will soon no longer be available as the automaker has ceased production of the hatchback for right-hand-drive markets.
