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!

Applied Arts Award

18. September 2013 11:40 by Administrator | 0 Comments

People use art to communicate with each other and the world around us. In advertising, art has always been an integral element in telling a story and expressing an idea. So how did Kia Canada get into the Applied Arts magazine annual award issue?  Earlier this year, Kia produced a commercial in which a waiter tries on a pair of glasses belonging to a Kia designer. What happens next is that he sees all the incredible inspirations that Kia designers use in designing our cars. To pull off this wildly imaginative idea, Kia used state-of-the-art animation. It was a very challenging task since there were multiple scenes with a wide variety of animation styles – so much that the project took many months to complete. But the final product speaks for itself: a truly captivating commercial that rewarded Kia in this year’s Applied Arts recognitions. Kia’s “Glasses” commercial allows you to see what it really means to be a Kia owner: when you buy a Kia, you’re not just buying a car, you’re buying innovative design. Check out the video below and see all the inspirations for yourself.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCUawja_q1Y
