Many things can happen in 7 years

7 years is long enough for even the biggest dreams to come true. Whatever your ambitions may be, we’ll be with you all the way. With quality that’s been tested under extreme conditions. 



    We can talk about quality because we really make it happen. Constantly evolving quality standards and controls accompany Kia cars through development, production and your ownership. That’s why we’re the only manufacturer to offer a 7-year/150,000 km warranty in Europe. Only very few items don’t enjoy this generous offer. By redefining quality, we make your Kia an outstanding experience every day.

The 7 Year Warranty in detail

Driven 27 times around the world

  • Tested to the limits

    Before it was launched, the new Kia Sorento was driven under the most extreme conditions for more than 1.1 million kilometres – the equivalent of going 27 times around the world. It’s a great example of our dedication to quality. All new Kia cars are verified by our Global Quality Centre against four key criteria.

Our quality criteria:

  • Driving Comfort

    Optimisation of ride comfort, cabin insulation and steering stability

  • Zero Defect Quality

    Electronic system performance and reliability in weather extremes

  • Emotional Quality

    Evaluation of seat performance, ergonomic design of controls and sensory satisfaction

  • Durability

    1.1 million kilometres of testing in different conditions around the world

Committed to excellent craftsmanship

  • Aiming for the best ownership experience

    For us, craftsmanship is the skill of turning innovative ideas into quality products. That’s why the manufacturing process is key to ensuring long-term customer satisfaction. At our European factory in Slovakia, 400 employees use independently certified systems to ensure the quality of the vehicles you drive.
