“It’s a great achievement for a vehicle to win one of AJAC’s coveted Canadian Car of the Year awards, but it’s exceptional for the same automaker to make two award-winning vehicles in the same year,” said Mark Richardson, President, Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. “Congratulations to Kia for the well-deserved success of the Stinger and Forte.”

Purchasing a car can be an exciting endeavor. It feels good to get behind the wheel of a reliable vehicle, especially if it’s one you’ve had your eye on and that comes with the features you need. However, it’s no secret that purchasing a car requires a financial commitment. If you don’t want this transaction to be a burden, make sure you take some financial steps in advance.
Bring Some Cash With You
Though you may not like the thought of parting with a few thousand dollars up front, if you can put down a sizable down payment, it will make it much easier to afford your 2018 Kia Rio 5-door. The more you can put down, the less you’ll pay per month. Also, if you’re right on the threshold of affordability, putting some money down can put you over the edge into a comfortable range.
Pay off Your Debt

The dealer will feel much more comfortable approving your loan if you have few other financial obligations. This will also make your monthly payments more manageable.
Check Your Credit
For some people, this is the most stressful part of shopping for a car. If you have poor credit, not only could you miss out on a good offer on the ideal vehicle, but you could suffer some embarrassment as well. Know where your credit stands before you head to the dealership. Make necessary adjustments to improve your score.
When it’s time to purchase a Kia, follow these steps to put yourself in a good position. The more secure you are financially, the better chance you have of qualifying for the ideal car.
