The KIApproved programme is available across all makes and models, not just Kia vehicles.
Paul Williams, managing director of Kia Motors (UK), said: 'The KIApproved Used Car Programme has been designed to ensure customer confidence in the history and condition of their used vehicle and to confirm Kia's commitment to offering outstanding value for money.'
KIApproved status is only awarded to vehicles that pass strict criteria of vehicle identity, history and mileage checks and are accompanied by a service history.
Every KIApproved vehicle will be sold with the remainder of its manufacturer's warranty or a minimum 12 months' comprehensive KIApproved warranty and be covered by a 14-day conditional exchange plan.
Additional options include a 12 or 24-month warranty extension, RAC coverage and MoT insurance.
