Prices of Kia Malaysia vehicles in Malaysia looks set for an upswing come 2016 according to this unofficial price list sourced from a local internet forum. The increase in prices appear to go up to 4%, and affects nearly almost every model offered here by Kia Malaysia.

The new prices should come into effect on January 1, 2016, and only affects the Peninsular Malaysia region. Only two of Kia Malaysia’s most recent introductions – the Cerato Koup (RM135,888) and Rio Sedan (RM72,888) – are unchanged in prices (on-the-road with insurance). The other models with their new 2016 prices (OTR with insurance) are as follows:

Kia Picanto 1.2 AT – RM61,888 (post-GST, RM59,888); RM2,000 increase
Kia Rio 1.4 SX Hatchback – RM81,888 (post-GST, RM79,080); RM 2,808 increase
Kia Cerato 1.6 Kx – RM91,888 (post-GST, RM89,680); RM2,208 increase
Kia Cerato 1.6 SX – RM101,888 (post-GST, RM99,480); RM2,408 increase
Kia Cerato 2.0L – RM119,888 (post-GST, RM117,680); RM2,208 increase
Kia Optima 2.0L – RM150,888 (post-GST, RM148,000); RM2,888 increase
Kia Sportage 2.0L 2WD – RM120,888 (post-GST, RM118,888); RM2,000 increase
Kia Sportage 2.0L 4WD – RM139,888 (post-GST, RM137,800); RM2,088 increase
Kia Sorento 2.4L – RM159,888 (post-GST, RM156,800); RM3,088 increase

The Malaysian Automotive Association predicts that vehicle sales in the country will continue to increase for the month of December, due to the anticipation of price hikes in 2016. It was recently revealed that Honda Malaysia will increase the price of its City model for 2016, and with Kia Malaysia hiking the prices for nearly all of its models, will you be rushing in to place an order before the year’s end?
