Since 2012, Kia Canada has scoured the country to find the ultimate Superfan. Now in its third year, Kia is offering two grand prizes of round trips to Korea where winners will enjoy a 3-night and 4-day stay, from September 21st to 25th as well as a guided tour of Kia headquarters and the cultural cityscapes of Seoul, South Korea.
To win, fans had up to 2,000 words to explain what makes them the biggest Kia Superfan. This year’s winners are:
Frederick Alarie and his wife Isabelle have been part of the Kia family for fourteen years. Their four children keep them young at heart and their Kia vehicles in good use. Over the years, they have enjoyed three Sedona models and a Soul to “taxi” their children to all their events and activities. Next on their radar is the newest generation Soul to add to their charming family. As huge soccer fans, Frederick and Isabelle look forward to supporting their favourite MLS team: the Montreal Impact along with their healthy growing band of Kia enthusiasts. We think the Alarie family members are our most enthusiastic Superfans yet!
Dan MacNeil fell in love with the Optima for its sleek, sophisticated body lines and high-performance handling. Dan and his wife have 5 kids, so the Optima was always out of reach until last year when this longtime admirer and advocate finally got the “go-ahead” from his wife to purchase his sporty Optima. Now, he is eager to make other drivers jealous of his 6th ”baby.”
Some of our previous Superfan winners have shared their wonderful stories and even started a following! They are:
Sebastien Fortin, who after buying a Forte Koup SX in 2010 started a Forte car club in Quebec. Since its beginning, the club has expanded to include all Kia models and now has almost 1,400 members.
Elaine Baird, who bought a Soul in 2011, named it "Emma” and created a fantastic blog about it.
Trevor Smith, who bought a Rondo in 2008 and traded it for a 2012 Kia Soul. Trevor is a regular contributor to online Kia forums, with thousands of posts since 2007.
David Poirier, who has owned five Kia vehicles since 1999 and even convinced his father to buy Kia vehicles. Since then, he and his father have owned eleven Kias between them. In 2012, he drove up to his wedding in a brand new Kia Rio.
Join us in celebrating Kia’s superfans and global ambassadors! We aim to continue this contest in the years to come in celebration of our loyal and extraordinary Kia fans.
This program and contest celebrates loyal and extraordinary Kia fans by bringing them closer to the heart of its origins and rewarding them with a trip of a lifetime.
