In the automotive world, there are different ways one can find out about a specific vehicle and be ecstatic about it. Some may discover their next dream vehicle through car reviews, movies, or simply conversations with car enthusiasts.
Martin Lock with his Kia Sorento
As for Human Resource Director Martin Lock, he realized that a vehicle from the Kia brand should be on his list after visiting Korea with his family.
“My family and I went to Korea where we were fetched by a Kia Carnival. This made me realize that the brand Kia has come a long way in terms of performance and style. Hence, my interest in the brand and the cars that they offer was piqued,” said Kia Sorento owner Martin Lock.
He commended the Kia brand
After the family trip to Korea, Lock told Kia Philippines that he went online to look for the best-rated 7-seater vehicles and watched countless reviews of possible options. In the end, he decided to get a Kia Sorento thanks to its style, functionality, and safety features.
Lock further described the Sorento as a vehicle that has been his great companion for when it comes to work errands. Also, the vehicle provided a comfortable and convenient ride for him and his family which is essential due to the quarantine restrictions in the country.
“This car has been a significant companion for our family especially in this pandemic. Since we cannot go out with the kids outdoors, our family bonding became long drives with the kids just to sightsee or buy food in drive-thrus. The comfort it has provided me and my family encourages me to procure another Kia vehicle,” shared Lock.
