The New Kia range is designed to help cut your fuel costs whilst still providing a pleasant driving experience.
1. Lose Weight & Streamline...
Our new range has been sculpted so they are sleeker, lighter and more aerodynamic. The lighter the car the better, so if you're not using those things in your car-take them out! Roof racks and boxes increase drag - higher wind resistance and more weight means you use more fuel.
2. Don't Be Idle...
When stuck in traffic or stopped at traffic lights you could be wasting fuel. Many Kia models feature intelligent Stop & Go, otherwise known as ISG, which automatically stops your engine at appropriate times and restarts when you move off. This technology can help save up to 12% more fuel.
3. Give Yourself Time...
If travelling at rush hour or on congested roads you may use more fuel. To improve your mpg try to travel when the roads are quieter and give yourself plenty of time.
4. Smoothly does it...
One of the main causes of high fuel consumption is harsh acceleration, try to accelerate, decelerate and brake smoothly and anticipate the road ahead to avoid harsh braking.
5. Turn It Off or Keep It Low...
Always switch off de-misters, air conditioning and heated rear windscreens when you don't need them. Just like household electrical goods they consume power, increasing fuel consumption.
6. Know Your Limits...
The faster you drive the more fuel you use. Driving at 50mph instead of 70mph can improve fuel economy by up to 25%
7. Get into Gear...
Driving in the wrong gear will waste fuel, Kia models featuring a gear shift indicator have a visual aid showing when to change gear for cars without this feature use the highest gear possible to keep your revs low taking into account road conditions and speed limits.
8. Stay Pumped Up...
Regularly check your tyres are inflated to recommended pressures, under inflated tyres waste fuel, may impact how your car handles and increase wear. If you're not sure what that is look in your Kia owner'smanual.
9. All part of the Service...
Make sure your car is serviced according to Kia's recommended service schedule to ensure your car is well maintained and operating perfectly.
