How much do you love your Kia? May 11th, 2017




It’s springtime and love is in the air. So what better time than to celebrate love and appreciation for your Kia?

Kia Motors is providing the perfect opportunity to do just that. Find out about the fun ways in which Kia fans are celebrating this season for love!


Give it a Kiss!

Just last month, the Southwest Kia Round Rock dealership of Texas, United States partnered with the local radio music station 96.7 KISS FM for an interesting contest that made headlines. The contest called for Kia fans in the area to gather and kiss a 2017 Kia Optima for a chance to claim the car as their own.

The aptly named ‘Kiss a Kia’ contest kicked off with 20 participants. Contestants were provided with a ten minute break after each hour and although fans lost sleep and sustained aching muscles, everyone was in good spirits. After a whopping 50 hours of locking lips with the vehicle, Dilini Jayasuria, a resident of Austin, Texas, was named the winner and took the beloved Optima home.

Watch the footage of the contest below and see the winner collect her grand prize!


Thank you everyone for following along and showing your support to the contestants! Props to the final 7 who made it all 50 hours and congratulations to the winner of the car, Dilini!

KISS A KIA – We’re down to the final hours and the final 7 contestants in the 96.7 KISSFM contest at the Southwest Kia in Round Rock. Who will be the last person with their lips on the car?

Discover Your Soulmate

 Taking the baton from Texas, Kia Canada is holding a contest that allows fans to express their love for Kia in a more verbal way. With the Kia Soulmates contest, fans from Canada are encouraged to submit stories about their very own Kia Soul through writing, photos and videos.
