Kia is [Made for You]

9. June 2016 11:25 by Administrator | 0 Comments

What’s the most important part of any Kia vehicle? Its driver and passengers. At Kia, we value the people for whom we make our cars, and we love hearing about how Kia is improving every day life for its beloved drivers. In March, we launched our Made for You testimonial videos, so we could all get to know some of our drivers a little bit better. We heard some fantastic stories, and got to know some amazing people. The best part of these video testimonials was learning more about our extended Kia family. Take Vanessa, for instance: she won a Kia Sportage through a contest, which inevitably saved her family home! She and her mother were about to lose their family home, and selling their Kia Sportage enabled them to keep their house. Vanessa was always grateful to Kia, and remains a happy, loyal Kia driver to this day! Don, his wife Amber, and their beautiful family love their Kia. Not only does it fit their lifestyle and their growing family perfectly, but they’ve experienced its safety first-hand. Don was in a scary accident, which he recalls in his video, and is grateful for Kia’s commitment to safety. After all, his family’s safety is his first priority. Brent is a Kia superfan! He’s had four different Kia vehicles, but is particularly fond of the Sedona, which he toured around in as a musician. He was impressed that the comfortable and spacious Sedona could seat his band members, as well as his precious gear. He even introduced his mother to Kia! Her favourite Kia feature? Heated seats! Check out his story below. Kia is made for people like you. We would love to keep hearing from you, so if you have a Kia story you’d like to share, or if you’d like to let us know how Kia has made a difference in your life, please connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, Instagram, snail mail, or carrier pigeon, and share your Kia-ism.

David Hearn: From K900 to Sorento

22. December 2015 11:12 by Administrator | 0 Comments

David Hearn caught Kia Canada’s attention in 2011 when he was named SCOREGolf’s Canadian Male Pro Golfer of the Year. With a return to the PGA Tour in 2011, where he’s had four solid seasons, he’s become known for a sharp short game and consistent play. Hearn was a perfect fit for the Kia brand because while being an elite-level athlete, he’s a devoted family man.     “Kia is a car that I trust personally, with the style and quality I need for both myself and my family. As much as I love golf, my family is what matters most. It is important for me to partner with a quality company like Kia”. As a proud ambassador, Hearn represents Kia on the PGA Tour, wearing the Kia logo on the chest of his golf shirt. He also represents Kia off the course – using the vehicles as his family’s daily driver. Over the past year, he’s been driving in style in the K900. He and his family were very impressed with Kia’s luxury car. With its incredibly quiet interior and powerful V8, they not only found it fun to drive, but more than deserving of its premium designation. As a family man, Hearn was looking for safety first and given the many features included, the K900 definitely stood out. He also required a practical vehicle with enough room for his family, luggage and of course, his clubs. Now, whenever he talks about Kia to friends on tour, he recommends the K900 to everyone, as he feels it stacks up with the best manufacturers in the world. Next year, Hearn will be driving the All-New 2016 Sorento. He and his family are looking forward to getting into the new model, having enjoyed another Sorento in the past. Getting back into an SUV means even more cargo space than before – which is most welcome when travelling to airports and tournaments with two kids and luggage for all. Another reason they’re looking forward to getting into the Sorento is its Dynamax All-Wheel Drive system. Not only will it provide them with the safety and comfort they need, but the capability to handle Canadian winters with ease. To hear what David Hearn had to say about his experience in Kia vehicles, check out the video below! For more information on the K900, the All-New 2016 Sorento and the rest of the Kia line-up, visit Kia.ca.
