Kia Soul Wins Third Consecutive Award from ALG!

5. May 2016 17:40 by Administrator | 0 Comments

Kia Canada is thrilled to announce that the Kia Soul has won its third consecutive Canadian Residual Value Award from the Automotive Lease Guide, or ALG! For over fifty years, the ALG has kept a close eye on the automotive industry on an international level, consistently testing and reporting on every aspect of the market. ALG provides the benchmark for automotive valuation, and the ALG Awards honour mainstream brands that are predicted to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a four-year period. Amazingly, ALG’s values and forecasts have been within 1% of actual values for the last twenty years! 95% of the global automakers, 5 top ratings agencies and 9 of 10 top auto lenders rely on ALG's insights, so it goes without saying that objectivity and accuracy are crucial factors in its valuations.   For the third year in a row, the Kia Soul has been ranked as top pick in the Subcompact Utility Vehicle category. Soul is expected to retain a whopping 57% of its value after three years of ownership, meaning you aren’t just getting a fun, sleek vehicle with Soul, you’re also getting more bang for your buck. I guess what we’re saying is that it isn’t just a pretty face – it’s as valuable as it is stylish. The fun and funky urban hatchback is a mix of personality, utility, and affordability. Soul is instantly recognizable, with its striking features and slick design, and will turn heads everywhere you go.     Read more about the Automotive Lease Guide here : https://www.alg.com/residual-value-awards.html     Check out the Kia Soul here : http://www.kia.ca/soul?sourceid=hp-dropdown

Kia Canada Sends Two Superfans to Korea as part of Customer Loyalty Program 2015

7. October 2015 11:06 by Administrator | 0 Comments

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.

J.D. Power thinks the 2015 Kia Sedona is APEAL-ing. We agree!

22. July 2015 15:35 by Administrator | 0 Comments

We are thrilled to announce that the 2015 Kia Sedona has won the APEAL award in the J.D. Power Minivan segment. APEAL stands for: A Pretty Extraordinary Automotive League (just kidding) but it might as well! The study in fact looks at Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) of a particular vehicle.  Historically with our brand, the APEAL award has usually been associated with the Kia Soul which, before this year had won the award three consecutive years in a row in the Compact Multi-Purpose vehicle segment. However, this year it’s the Sedona’s turn in the spotlight. When designing the Sedona, Kia wanted to put families first. The Smart-Power Liftgate, dual panoramic sunroofs, and unparalleled safety features helped achieve this task. The Sedona reinvents what a minivan should be: not only safe and reliable but premium, luxurious, and built with cutting edge design. As the Kia brand continues to grow and improve, we are both overjoyed and humbled by the recognition our vehicles are getting. Along with the J.D Power IQS awards we received for the Kia Soul and the Kia Sorento, this has been one of the best years yet! We are movin’ on up- and we can’t wait to share the ride with all of you!
