SPORTAGE SAFETY STORY

15. July 2016 16:20 by Administrator | 0 Comments

In April of 2016, Jessica Lewis-Michaud of Sherbrooke, QC, had an unbelievable and life-changing experience. Jessica recounted the day their Kia Sportage saved their lives on Facebook when she shared this post with us. “I got in a bad car accident with my Kia sportage 2016, as you can see my car is a total loss, but my passenger and I (and the baby I carry) are all fine, nothing broken, no open wounds, no internal bleeding. Just bruises and a rubbing burn due to the belt being right on my skin. I give this Kia car a 5 stars for the security, if it wasn’t for the air bags we could of been way more injured and I could have lost the baby.” It’s reasons like this that we put such a relentless and significant focus on the safety of our vehicles. We’ve heard many other incredible stories just like Jessica’s where drivers and their families have walked away, injury free, from collisions in their Kia vehicles and it makes it all worthwhile.  We are very proud to be able to say that the Kia Sportage (link to: www.kia.ca/sportage) has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, has won a Red Dot Award for its design and has even been named the Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality by J.D. Power. But nothing makes us more proud than knowing we’ve helped protect and even save the lives of our drivers and their family members.

Red Dot Design Award

18. September 2013 11:34 by Administrator | 0 Comments

In the world of design, there are numerous prestigious acknowledgements – one of which is the highly regarded Red Dot Design Award. The all-new, European-inspired 2014 Kia Rondo Urban Utility Vehicle (UUV) was presented with a Red Dot design award this year. Designed to be a versatile and family-friendly vehicle, it wasn’t easy to create a car that functions as such, while being stylish as well. World-renowned car designer and Kia’s Chief Design Officer and President, Peter Schreyer worked tirelessly with the Kia design team to ensure function and style came together in a unique package. So who decided the Rondo deserved the Red Dot Design Award? The Red Dot panel was made up of influential designers, professors and independently selected journalists from around the world who critiqued the Rondo based on various criteria including: degree of innovation, functionality, formal quality, ergonomics, durability, symbolic and emotional content, product periphery, self-explanatory quality and ecological compatibility. http://kia-buzz.com/kia-wins-four-red-dot-design-awards-for-its-compact-models/
