Naza Kia, the official distributor for Kia in Malaysia, is offering attractive discounts on selected models in June in the run-up to the Hari Raya festivities – the promotion runs from now until June 30, 2015.

The biggest discount goes to the cheapest car in Kia’s range, the Picanto 1.2 M/T – it gets a whopping RM15,888 discount over the RM54,888 sticker price (on-the-road inclusive of GST and insurance), which means that it’s yours for just RM39,000 (a 2013 model, according to a dealer we enquired). In comparison, the automatic variant has its price cut by just RM6,000, sitting at RM53,888.


Yes, we know, it’s a manual, but if you don’t mind rowing through your own gears – which isn’t exactly a hardship with such a light clutch – that’s a downright steal. Let’s not forget, this highly-specced car has six airbags and stability control, and it now costs less than a two-airbag, no-ESP Perodua Axia!

Other deals include those for the Cerato range – the base 1.6 KX now has a RM5,680 saving over list price (down to RM83,999), while the top-spec 2.0 sees a RM7,680 discount that puts the price down to RM110,000. The mid-range 1.6 SX gets the biggest discount among the trio – RM8,480 off its RM99,480 retail makes it RM91,000.
