Kia Masterclass 2015

Kia Masterclass 2015 at Millbrook Proving Ground, Befdord was a great success. It is where all our colleagues get to see all the latest Kia offerings and technology and try them out first hand. From trying the New Ceed GT around the track, being driven by professionl racing drivers such as Paul O'Neil and Tommy Erdos to Off-Roading in the New Sorento tackling the ponds and 60% slopes. All Kia collegues where well impressed with both and all the other technology being demo'd and provides our staff with the knowledge and confidence in our products.

To tie in with the release of the new James Bond Film Specre, the event had a spie/Mi5 theme.

Trials & Demo's included the Adaptive Cruise Control (using a radar sensor to monitor the distance to the vehicle in front, to keep a safe distance), Parking Assist (Bay parking and Paralelle parking - Hands Free), Trying the new DCT gearbox which is now 7 speed and alot smoother, Driving the New 1.0 Turbo ecodynamics GT-Line Ceed on the Alpine track and checking out the new Connected service's (powered by TomTom).
