Let Winter Come

14. November 2016 10:13 by Administrator | 0 Comments

As someone famous once said, “Winter is coming.” Yes, the coldest season of the year is just around the corner and some places are already getting snow. But fear not! Kia has you covered with great seasonal features.     Icy hills and slippery highways don’t stand a chance against Kia’s performance and traction features. Dynamax AWD is an intelligent and efficient all-wheel drive system that actively monitors driving conditions and anticipates action, rather than reacting to conditions only after they occur. Electronic stability control monitors the vehicle’s response to your throttle, brake and steering inputs in tight corners and evasive-maneuver situations. And the icy road indicator lights up on your dash to let you know when it’s freezing outside and that road conditions might be a bit slick. No matter how chilly it gets, it’s nice to know you’ve got heat to help you power through. With an available heated steering wheel and heated seats in many Kia models, you’ll be comfy from your fingertips to, well, you know. Automatic temperature control allows you to simply select the auto button on your temperature dial to help you reach your optimal temperature — just set it and forget it. And to help show you the way, the windshield wiper de-icer warms up your wipers to leave you with streak-free visibility. So, whether you love or hate that winter is coming, Kia will make sure you’re ready when it arrives.

Get out this winter

17. October 2016 15:15 by Administrator | 0 Comments

Whether you love it or hate it, it’s that time of year again. The temperature drops, the leaves fall and the days grow shorter. Every Canadian knows the drill: winter is on its way. The other thing we know is that winter doesn’t have to be any less enjoyable than any other time of year as long as you’re prepared.  After all, you wouldn’t ski without gloves. That’s why Kia is offering 10% off brake pads and rotors, 4-wheel alignment and any Kia genuine accessory until December 31st, so you can be prepared for the coming months. Kia dealers also offer 14 different brands of winter tires, so that you can be prepared for when the snow starts falling, no matter your budget. Your tires should change with the temperatures and at 7°C and below, winter tires are essential to maintaining a better grip on even dry or wet roads due to their softer compound.  For the ultimate grip this winter, look no further than the Kia Sorento or Sportage equipped with an available Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system. Nothing can compare to having a fully active system on your side that continuously monitors your driving conditions to send power to the wheels that need it most. It also uses automatic torque distribution to proactively transfer torque to provide better traction during acceleration, cornering and in low traction scenarios.   No matter what you need, your local Kia dealer will have you prepared for whatever comes so that you can be safe and enjoy the drive this winter.

The 2016 Sorento: Capable quality

17. March 2016 16:21 by Administrator | 0 Comments

    Since its launch, the 2016 Sorento has attracted the attention of auto industry professionals and drivers alike. For us, it’s no surprise that the available features in this midsized SUV have appealed to such a broad range of fans. After all, it was made for life’s adventures – whatever yours may be. But all of this attention isn’t due to simply including features like an available advanced Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system or any of the advanced safety features, it’s due to the quality and performance of them.   For instance, it’s the little things, like how the available auto-levelling Xenon HID headlights flow with the sleek lines and sculpted contours of the Sorento that garnered it the iF Design (link to:http://ifworlddesignguide.com/search?q=sorento#/page/entry/151841-kia-sorento) and Red Dot Design Awards (link to: http://red-dot.de/pd/online-exhibition/work/?lang=en&code=27-01738-2015&y=2015&c=166&a=0). Or how the use of Ultra High-Strength Steel throughout its structure contributed to it becoming an IIHS Top Safety Pick (link to: http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings/vehicle/v/kia/sorento-4-door-suv/2016) and an NHTSA Five Star Safety Pick (link to: http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/5-Star+Safety+Ratings/2011-Newer+Vehicles/Vehicle-Detail?vehicleId=10023).         The Sorento doesn’t just look the part, it acts it. All the design, features, technology, safety, and performance you want in an SUV is there. What makes it such a standout performer is that you can get all of these premium features without the premium price. This puts the Sorento into a category of its own, where it’s been able to top some of the biggest, most sought after names in the industry in quality rankings – like it did in 2015 when JD Power named it the highest ranked midsized SUV in Initial Quality (link to: http://canada.jdpower.com/microsites/kia/home). Then just a few months ago, Automotive Journalist Association of Canada (AJAC) named the 2016 Sorento the Best New SUV/CUV (link to: http://www.ajac.ca/web/) in the $35,000 - $60,000 segment, which is quite a feat considering the competition it was up against.   If you’re in the market for a new SUV, then there’s no doubt you’re also looking for one with great reviews to go along with impressive accolades. When it comes to reviews, most look to Consumer Reports for their clear, honest and unbiased product testing. Now, based on their most recent testing, we’re asking you to do the same. Whether you’re a current owner or future buyer, you have to see how 2016 Sorento ranked based on its performance, reliability, consumer satisfaction and safety on the Consumer Reports site [LINK TO: http://www.consumerreports.org/cars/best-cars-top-picks-2016/].
