The Superfan Experience

1. December 2016 14:58 by Administrator | 0 Comments

The Superfan contest is an annual event Kia holds to celebrate it’s most loyal, enthusiastic and die-hard fans. The winners get an all-inclusive trip for two to Seoul, Korea where they get to experience the culture, take in the rich history of the country and get a private tour of the Kia plant. To enter, fans submit a written entry that explains what makes them Kia’s biggest Superfan.      One of this year’s winners was Heather Corbett, who after 7 years and 250,000km, says her Soul has changed her life in so many ways. Shortly after buying her Soul, Heather joined the Soul Club of Ontario and became an administrator on their website. She even met her boyfriend at a club meet. Now she enjoys browsing the forums, talking to new friends on Facebook, going to car shows and weekly coffee meets, and even hosting members from as far as England. Another winner this year was Nevin Sendel, who was an early adopter of the Kia brand. His first Kia was a 2004 Magentis that his family loved so much that they bought it after their lease was up. Unfortunately, his sons were both involved in bad accidents, one in the Magentis and the other in their 2014 Optima. Thankfully, both times, they walked away without a scratch. That’s what’s kept Nevin and his family behind the wheel of a Kia. When they arrived in South Korea, Heather and Nevin and their partners were taken to the luxurious Lotte World Hotel where they had welcome gifts waiting and translators to help them enjoy their exciting days ahead. On the first full day, they learned about the history, culture and customs of South Korea with a guided tour of a Korean Folk Village and a buffet lunch. Then they headed back to the hotel for a formal welcome dinner complete with entertainment. Next up was a fascinating tour of both the Kia assembly plant and steel plant where they learned about these environmentally friendly facilities and the products they make. That evening, they went to Samwon Garden for a traditional Korean BBQ dinner. Finally, on their last full day, they were treated to a trip to a Royal Palace where they took in the country’s history and enjoyed the beautiful scenery with mountains in the background. That afternoon, they were able to explore Insadong Street while shopping for souvenirs before heading to a farewell party, dinner and entertainment on the unique Sevit floating island. They’ll never forget the memories and friends made on this once-in-a-lifetime trip. If you haven’t had a chance to discover the beauty of South Korea, stay tuned for next year’s Superfan contest when you’ll have the chance to tell your story!

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.
