The Motability Scheme gives drivers with a disability or carers and their family the chance to drive an affordable, practical new KIA that meets their individual requirements. You can lease a new KIA car, SUV or MPV for 3 years by simply exchanging your Government-funded Mobility Allowance. Some of the new KIA cars that can be driven through the Motability Scheme include the KIA Stonic, the popular Ceed and the affordable Picanto 5 door.
Motability is national charity that works with the Motability-accredited specialists in KIA dealerships to deliver all the advice and support you need to choose the car that’s right for you.
In addition to a brand new KIA of your choice every 3 years, you also get a huge mileage allowance of 60,000 miles plus the peace of mind that comes with knowing that RAC breakdown cover, road tax, certain adaptations and annual servicing and repairs are all included.
Motability also include comprehensive insurance for 3 drivers as a part of the package, so even if you don’t drive yourself you can still nominate family members, friends or carers to drive the car for your benefit.
