A BRISTOL Rugby player yesterday (March 30, 2016) collected his new third-generation Kia Sportage from our Feeder Road dealership in the city.
Olly Robinson, who plays in the back row in the first team, was the fourth person at the club to pick up his brand new personal vehicle from us.
Tom Wherlock, our Fleet B2B Specialist, explained: “In February we provided three Kia Sportages to three members of Bristol Rugby, Jack O’Connell, who plays in the first team, Eoin Power, the team’s Physiotherapist and Dr Harriet Collins, who is involved with looking after the player’s treatments.
“We’re thrilled that Olly, who is the leading forward try scorer in the league, has also decided to purchase his personal car from us too.
“We sponsor Bristol Rugby and have done so for many years and we are so pleased we could extend our relationship even further with its members.”
Twenty-four-year-old Olly chose a white, Kia Sportage ‘1’ 1.7 diesel.
Olly explained: “As Jack and Eoin were driving the new Sportage I got to have a lift in one and loved the drive and the feel of it. I then found that I was seeing the model everywhere on the motorway and absolutely loved the look of it. I just had to get my own.
“Jack put me in touch with Tom, who was incredibly efficient and within three weeks I got to drive away in my brand new Sportage. I am delighted to have been able to do a deal with Wessex Garages and thank them for their great service.”
Standard on the Kia Sportage ‘1’ are 16 inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, rain sensing front wipers, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, leather trimmed steering wheel and hill-start assist control.
Also included is air conditioning, Bluetooth® with Voice Recognition and Music Streaming, USB & AUX Ports, a trip computer and Cruise Control.
