Northland Kia Breaks Ground on New Showroom

Share Article

Northland Kia in North West Calgary has started an extensive dealership renovation. When completed the building will meet Kia Motors’ corporate image program and allow for better customer service.

“This is the best time to buy a new Kia”

The existing building dates back more than thirty years. It was originally a Pontiac, Buick, GMC dealer until they were informed their franchise agreement would not be renewed as part of GM Canada’s efforts to reduce the number of dealers in Canada. In October 2009, Northland Kia began operations and joined Eastside Kia and Kia City as the third Kia dealer in Calgary. Kia Motors is one of the fastest growing car companies in Canada and a third dealer was definitely needed to support the growing customer base in Calgary.

The North West location has had a positive impact on Kia’s sales in Calgary allowing for greater market share especially in the North part of Calgary and surrounding areas like Cochrane and Canmore. In addition to improving sales, Northland Kia has also given existing Kia owners a repair centre in North West Calgary making vehicle servicing much more convenient.

The renovations, which should be completed by April 2011, include a new showroom, new customer lounge and upgrades to the parts and service departments. The new showroom will face Shaganappi Trail allowing greater visibility making Northland Kia easier too find. The new showroom will also allow Northland Kia to move its Used Vehicle department into the existing showroom.

Having a Pre-Owned showroom will allow more comfortable shopping during extreme weather conditions. It will also allow Kia Certified Pre-Owned vehicles to be featured. Kia Certified vehicles are those premium used Kia vehicles which have passed a rigorous inspection and are backed by an extra year of factory warranty. Kia Certified vehicles also qualify for special finance rates starting at just 0.9% APR.

The staff at Northland Kia is very excited about the many upgrades but want to ensure current customers and potential customers that they are still open for business during the renovations. “This is the best time to buy a new Kia” says Rob Wills the managing partner. Kia is currently very aggressive in the market. They are offering 0% financing on all 2010 models and great rates on 2011’s. The 2011 Sorento now starts at $19,995 which is a tremendous value. Kia is even offering savings of $2000 on the popular Kia Soul, a car sure to put a smile on your face.

Great prices are not the only reason to check out Northland Kia. Kia is a product roll. The award winning 2011 Sportage is now available and the first Forte5 hatchbacks have also started to arrive. In the next few months Kia will also launch the Optima a mid sized car replacing the Magentis and the Cadenza. The Cadenza replaces the Amanti as Kia’s luxury car entry. The 2012 will also see the launch of the new Kia Rio and the addition of Sportage Turbo.

Kia Motors Inc has great things planned for the future and Northland Kia is upgrading so we can all drive change.
