kia-soul-evGetting from point A to point B will require a person to have a reliable car. Thanks to programs like Uber, which provides transportation for those without a car, getting to your destination has never been easier. For people who have a reliable form of transportation, Uber is a great way to make some money by transporting others in your area. Kia sees the benefit in a service like Uber and is now offering a special incentive to save Uber drivers money on their vehicle purchase. In order to become an Uber driver, you will need to have a four door vehicle that passes state inspection. In order to take advantage of this incentive, you will need to have a valid Uber driver id. The money that you can save by being an Uber driver will make a big difference when it comes time to buy a new four door Kia.

The biggest benefit that comes along with being an Uber driver is that it will allow you to be self-employed. This means that you own your own business and are in charge of your own financial destiny. In order to be successful in this line of work, you will have to take the time to find out how to control your expenses. Taking advantage of the Uber offer from Kia Motors is the first step you need to take when trying to get on stable ground with your finances. The money that is paid for a Kia vehicle will be worth it due to the reliability and safety they can offer.

Important Reasons to Choose a Kia

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

kia-full-lineupWhen it comes to shopping for a new car, there are definitely a ton of options available. With a huge amount of new technology being filtered into the automotive industry as well as a countless number of automakers working to gain your attention, it is extremely difficult to find where you should begin your search. Kia is one of the fastest growing automotive brands available and providing excitement and value to drivers. While it is important to conduct your own research, here are some reasons why North Brunswick, NJ residents need to choose Kia as their vehicle manufacturer of choice.

Excellent Value

Kia understands that today’s shoppers are extremely budget-conscious. Also, that this drives them to seek a vehicle that has a low price, without feeling as though they are driving something that feels or looks cheap. Some of the latest features of the Kia lineup include technology such as the UVO infotainment system as well as advanced safety features such as warnings for lane-departure that you would only find in more costly vehicles.

A Car that is Fun to Drive

There are many automakers that make claims to have the most fun cars on the road. However, Kia delivers on this promise with a car that has an exciting and “zippy” feel that actually puts the anticipation back into getting behind the wheel. From the selections of the Sportage to the Rio, these vehicles have features such as impactful accelerations and tight handling that put you in full control of the road.

With all of the features and innovation that comes with the Kia brand of vehicle, buying one is really a no brainer. Call on the team at Gateway Kia of North Brunswick, NJ to find out more about the Kia vehicles they have to offer.
