The FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™, takes place from June 6th to July 5th at venues in Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, and MonctonThe games are sure to be unforgettable, but there’s even more fun in store for fans off of the field.

During the Ottawa and Montreal matches, Kia is proud to host Fan Zones where fans of the sport can engage with interactive soccer activities to receive prizes, premium giveaways, photo opportunities, and more!

 

In addition to the pre-game Fan Zones, Kia is inviting 6 young soccer stars and their teams to walk with Shuéme, the official FIFA Women’s World Cup mascot, to her pitch

To bring our soccer nation together, Kia has organized various mobile pop up screening parties during the games of Team Canada. Visitors get to sit in bean bag chairs, enjoy a cold beverage, watch the game on a big screen TV and enter for a chance to win  prizes. Additionally, by bringing their ‘game face’, fans can also participate in a chance  to win a trip to the final match in Vancouver!

On top of all this excitement, Kia is offering online ticket giveaways to select FIFA Women’s World Cup matches, as well as providing game-day coverage for the fans that want to keep tabs on what’s going on.

Kia is bringing six lucky young soccer stars and their teams to the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015

4. June 2015 15:21 by Administrator | 0 Comments

As an official partner of FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015™ , we’re thrilled that the big tournament is just about two weeks away. But there’s someone who might be more excited than we are. We’ll give you a hint: she’s covered in feathers from head to cleat.

Shuéme, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015™ Great White Owl mascot, first flew onto the scene in 2014. Here she is making her debut, fittingly, at the Canadian Museum of Nature.

 

Shuéme is looking for an exceptional, young soccer player to join her on the pitch during halftime at games in New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia. Think about it: a finals match, the world stage, and the experience of a lifetime.

Do you know a young soccer star between eight and sixteen who would love the opportunity? Tell us their storyAnd since there’s no “I” in “soccer” (or “football”, for that matter), all their teammates will also be there to share in the experience. Birds of a feather flock together, after all.

Kia - Among the Best of AJAC’s TestFest

8. December 2014 15:33 by Administrator | 0 Comments

New vehicles have a lot to prove at the 2015 Canadian Car of the Year Awards’ TestFest. Especially when those behind the wheel are the industry’s toughest critics: automotive journalists.

The AJAC’s rigorous evaluation process is based on back-to-back testing in a real-world setting to ensure the results have relevance for consumers. Every member of a test team compares each vehicle in its class – back-to-back, on the same roads and in the same conditions – to ensure a fair evaluation.

After conducting their annual test drive of new vehicles in Niagara Falls in late October, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) has determined that 2015 will be an excellent year for Kia, as the brand has taken top honours with its first ever all-electric vehicle in its very first year of production.

On December 2nd, the 2015 Kia Soul EV was announced the winner of the Best New City Car category.

This continues a winning streak for Kia, having won the 2014 AJAC award for Best New Family Car Under $30,000 with the 2014 Kia Soul, and the Best New SUV ($35,000 - $60,000) with the 2014 Kia Sorento.

With the Soul EV, Kia was able to make the award-winning Soul even more eco-friendly without sacrificing interior space or versatility. The new Soul EV boasts a comfortable interior with certain components crafted from bio-based antibacterial materials. This earned the Soul EV the first-ever UL Environmental validation in the automotive sector. And the Soul EV’s engine is no less remarkable, with a 360V electric motor that can instantly produce 210 lb-ft. of torque, capable of traveling a combined city/highway distance of up to 149 km on a single charge. With the Soul EV, Kia made sure to do it right by exploring every avenue of going green.

This new electric vehicle is a testament to Kia’s “Power To Surprise”. With so many firsts involved in the production and release of the Soul EV, this is clearly, for Kia and their legions of fans and drivers, a cause for celebration.

When it comes to Kia cars, we build for the long haul, but we also want to ensure you get all the features you want without compromising.  Forte vehicles are the best of both worlds providing you with technical upgrades and stylish finishes that are the envy of the industry.  Don’t take our word for it, visiting our Kia Canada Facebook page showcases a loyal and vibrant fan community who love their Kia’s (https://www.facebook.com/kiacanada).  So when it came time to introduce the Forte Family to the public, we thought long and hard as to what features and options will best fill the needs of our fans.

Saying goodbye to compromise really said it all - With the Forte Family you don’t need to compromise, you get everything you could possibly want at a price you can afford.  When filming our new Forte television spots

(which can be seen on Kia Canada’s YouTube channel don’t forget to subscribe https://www.youtube.com/user/KiaCanada) we told the story of how people continuously compromise in many areas of their lives.  The commercials showcase this point and hammer home how the all-new Kia Forte ensures that owners of this dynamic vehicle get everything they need and more.

The Forte Koup:

The Kia Forte Koup is a great sports coupe for the car enthusiast.  This car hugs the road while priding itself on its powerful stance.  On this vehicle you’ll find Kia’s signature grille, standard 17-inch alloy wheels and frameless doors.  Power-folding side mirrors along with LED halo fog lights set this vehicle apart.  The 173-horsepower gasoline direct injection (GDI) and four cylinder engine gives you the assurance you need to explore new horizons.

The Forte:

This is a sporty sedan that is suitable for anyone looking to combine great technology and spacious comfort.  This vehicle also comes equipped with state of the art lighting options including high intensity discharge (HID) headlights and LED light bar technology taillights on the SX model.

The Forte 5:

This fun car gives you all the perks you could ever want in a vehicle.  It’s the perfect blend of style, practicality and fun.  If you’re looking for a mix between the Forte Koup and the Forte sedan this is your vehicle.  Futuristic machine-finished 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheels provide a powerful visual statement.  Cargo space of 657 litres are available in the back of this vehicle’s large rear hatch and standard fold-down rear seatbacks. It’s the perfect fit for a fun ride with great space for all the practical things in your life.
