Trade in for a Kia

At South Trail Kia in Calgary, we enjoy watching our customers head home in a brand new Kia, beginning a driving adventure that we know they're going to love. If you have a vehicle to trade in, that can make it even easier to get behind the wheel of a new Kia. Our online tools make the process fast and stress-free.

Our Online "Value My Trade" Tool

A great first step is to visit our Value My Trade page on our website. Enter the year, make, model, and style (or trim level) of your vehicle. Enter the mileage (in km). Click "Next," then choose the condition of your trade and choose the Kia you want to trade for. Click "Next" again. A new page will provide you with some basic info about how taxes and depreciation might affect your current car, plus a field to send us your contact information. Fill in that field and click "Show My Price" to get a trade-in valuation for your car. It's that easy!


While you're on our site, you can apply for credit with our secure, encrypted online credit application. There's no obligation and no charge for applying. You could get pre-approval for a rate as low as 0% (depending on your credit rating) with low monthly payments. Our Finance Team works with over 15 lenders and can manage almost any credit situation to get you into a new Kia. If you'd like to get an idea what the monthly payments would be for any given car loan, we also have an online payment estimator.

Build and Price Your Favourite Kia

We have additional tools to help you find exactly the Kia you want, so you can come into our dealership ready to buy. Try our online Build and Price tool to zero in on the exact Kia model and trim level that's perfect for you. Once you have a Kia in mind, you can request a quote online, too.

What Kind of Vehicles Can You Trade for a Kia?

The short answer is, anything! Our used inventory currently features more than 100 cars from over twenty different makes, so the chances are that we can take in whatever you're driving now as a trade. Let's make this happen! Perhaps you're interested in trading for an economical but fun-to-drive 2018 Kia Forte, 2018 Kia Niro or 2018 Kia Rio sedan or 5-door hatchback. Maybe you'd like to step up to a 2018 Kia Optima sedan. You might want the go-anywhere practicality of one of Kia's SUVs, like the 2018 Sportage (one of our favourites) and the mid-size 2018 Sorento. And who can forget the snazzy 2018 Kia Soul? Finally, brand-new for 2018, we have one of the most exciting Kias we've ever driven: the powerful, sporty, rear-wheel-drive Kia Stinger.

Trade-in Day!

You've got a trade-in appraisal, pre-approved financing, and the exact Kia model you want, all lined up. What happens on trade-in day? Well, an appraiser from our pre-owned sales team will spend about one-quarter to one-half an hour evaluating your vehicle. The appraiser may take it for a short test drive. While this is going on, you can test drive your favourite Kia and get the sales process underway.
