On Labor Day Monday, we are teaming up with Sansone Jr. Route 66 Kia in Neptune at the Headliner to give one lucky person a 2018 Kia Sportage from our Kiss a Kia summer contest. I did a little research for our anticipated winner and here’s what I found about your new car.

Plan a road-trip because the compact SUV has plenty of room for your taller passengers in both rows and the rear seats recline, so they will enjoy a comfortable ride. The luxurious well-built cabin will add to your driving pleasure and you’ll have plenty of space for luggage and some of your outdoor gear in approximately 31 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. Check out my video on the Point’s Facebook page and you’ll see it’s big enough to fit a “scooter.”

The Kia Sportage has solid handling, so you’ll feel more secure driving in inclement weather conditions. The suspension enables you to enjoy a smooth ride even with some of our road imperfections. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Kia Sportage a five-star overall crash test rating, so you can feel safe in your new ride.

I had the pleasure to meet with many of the Kiss A Kia contestants on the Asbury Park Boardwalk over the summer and wish all of you the best of luck. Tiffany was our Kiss a Kia winner from last year and she loves driving her Kia. Who will it be this year? Find out this Labor Day Monday on 94.3 The Point.
