SUBARU CONFIRMS ENTRIES IN THE 2018 NITRO WORLD GAMES INITIAL RALLYCROSS

   

11 years ago, the X Games first featured a Rally Car event.  Now with the Nitro World Games being the next step in the evolution of extreme action sports, and with Nitro Circus creator and action sports icon Travis Pastrana at the helm, it only makes sense that the third annual Nitro World Games would feature the first ever Nitro RallyCross.  And since the Subaru WRX STI figured so prominently into the first Rally Car events at the X Games, we are happy to announce that Travis Pastrana is joining Chris Atkinson and Patrik Sandell to drive identically prepared 2018 Subaru WRX STI Rallycross supercars. 

"Subaru has been a seminal supporter of RallyCross in the USA and what the Nitro World Games has in stores for fans and driver's looks to be something truly special and unique.  We're excited to be a part of it," said Bill Stokes, Motorsports Manager of Subaru of America. 

For more details about the race, follow Subaru Rally Team USA on Facebook, Twitter(@srtusa) and Instagram(@srtusa). 

We also have the Subaru WRX STI available for sale!  Contact us at 1(800) 411-4551 or visit us at 150 North Main Street, Branford.  

KIA SORENTO CONQUERS HELL'S REVENGE IN NEW MARKETING CAMPAIGN


 

The Kia Sorento has evolved into one of America's most reliable SUV's.  For its most recent ad, Kia put the Sorento to the test by having it take on the famous Hell's Revenge off-road trail in Moab, Utah.  The Sorento used for the challenge was almost identical to a Sorento you would find on our lot, with the exception of a skid plate and all-terrain tires.  Driver Richard Mick also took off the sway bars for increased articulation and traction.

The Hell's Revenge trail has six and a half miles of steep slopes, including a few well placed obstacles - including Hell's Gate and the Escalator, two such obstacles that have caused other SUV's to get significantly damaged.  The Sorento has the benefit of the Dynamax Intelligent All-Wheel Drive to help it soldier through these tough obstacles. 

Hell's Revenge proved to be a challenge, but the Sorento made it through with minimal damage.  It didn't hurt to have a professional off-road driver behind the wheel, but the fact that it's within the abilities of a SUV to do something like this is impressive.

For more information on the 2019 Kia Sorento, or to see it LIVE in person, please dial (203) 315-2050 or come in to 205 North Main Street, Branford, CT. 



PREMIER SUBARU SPONSORS 39th BRANFORD ROAD RACE


 
   

Premier Subaru was an underwriting sponsor for the 39th Branford Road Race, which took place on Father's Day, June 17, 2018. This is the 4th year that Premier was a major underwriter for this event. There were over 2,700 participants in the Road Race's 3 major events: the 1-mile Fun Run, the 2-mile Fitness Walk, and the 5-mile race. The event was designed to raise money for this year's three signature charities - Camp Rising Sun (a children's cancer camp and a charity Premier Subaru has raised money through the Share The Love program), the Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson's, and Notre Dame High School. The event was also the first time the race's two founders, Ray Figlewski(who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has purchased multiple Subarus) and Dick Wainman, participated together in the 2-mile health walk. The race, which has been called "the best road race in America" has raised thousands of dollars for local charities over the last 39 years.

Here Are Some Examples:
"Great Customer Service"- RhodyBB, Satisfied Subaru Sales Customer

I preordered my 2019 Subaru Ascent from Premier Subaru and I am so glad that I did! They kept me in the loop about it's arrival. I have been waiting for Subaru to make a larger SUV that would accommodate my family. They sure delivered with this vehicle! I was able to come see and drive the car on Saturday and pick it up on Tuesday. Everyone I dealt with made the whole process seamless. From the sales staff to the business office staff even the the president himself, Robert Alvine, were a pleasure to deal with during the transaction. They were all very professional and treated me more than fairly! I would highly recommend this dealership! Buying a car can be stressful and sometimes exhausting, but I can honestly say that I had a wonderful experience. Thanks to all of you at Premier Subaru!


"A Pleasure To Work With"- Mark Fagan, Satisfied Kia Sales Customer

I have bought no less than 30 cars from dealerships over the years. I can truly say that without a doubt, Premier Kia was one of the most pleasant ever. My sales person, Cody Lawson was awesome to deal with, he took the time to understand my needs and together we found the perfect car. Cody approached me very kindly and I didn't feel pressured or anxious. Negotiation was painless, as was the financing. No high pressure sales, no gimmicks. I feel I for a very good value for my money and the experience left me feeling good, not the normally dreaded car buying experience. I would definitely recommend and go back!!

ADORABLE & ADOPTABLE ANIMALS

Every month, we bring you a pet looking for his or her "Forever Home". 
           

Luna is a two-year-old Border Collie, Labrador Retriever, and American Bulldog mix girl in search for her forever home.  She came in to rescue when picked up with my two puppies, living in a drain culvert trying to keep them alive. Her pups have found new families, and we're hoping to find a home for Luna now.  Luna has a wonderful time playing with lots and lots of dogs every day. She is crate-trained, house-trained, walks well on leash, and knows basic commands such as sit and stay(note: may get excited at first). She loves to roll over for belly rubs and to go on car rides!
