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.

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.

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
