It's that time of the year again when college graduates and their parents march to showrooms to shop for a car fit for the soon-to-be yuppie. Through a promo called "Kia Pic a Forte," Kia Philippines (aka Columbian Autocar Corporation) is enticing the new graduates to get the Picanto hatchback as their first automobile. By purchasing the Picanto, new owners get a chance to bring home a brand-new Forte Koup, too.
Running from March 1 to April 30, the raffle promo is applicable to purchases of the 1.0L EX and 1.2L EX Picanto variants. With an attractive pricing of P650,000 and below, the hatchback is one of the Korean car brand's most interesting models in the country. It is available in bold colors, too, so it appeals to younger drivers.
The big prize--the Forte Koup--was launched in our market in June last year. It is powered by a 2.0-liter in-line-four D-CVVT MPI gasoline engine capable of 159hp and 194Nm.
The big draw will happen on May 5, 2016, and only one lucky winner gets to drive home the coupe.
