The new Kia Sportage made its debut at Queen’s Hall recently at a gala launch on the 17th of March, 2016. The fourth generation vehicle was unveiled to a crowd of hundreds by Chutney Soca Monarch KI who drove the new model through a large split banner and promptly encouraged patrons to join him in doing the Kia dance (a modified version of the KI dance) as he continued an evening of entertainment alongside other entertainers including Neval Chatelal and the group Quattro Musica. Invited guests were also treated to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres throughout the evening. Shell Lubricants partnered with Kia and had a virtual reality simulator on display for guests to try in the form of the Shell VR Experience. Prior to the unveiling of the 2016 Sportage, company Directors Imtiaz and Shiraz Ahamad spoke on behalf of local agents, Southern Sales and Service Co. Ltd. Mr. Park of Kia International gave remarks and words of encouragement from the multinational company.
