- JUNE 2018 -
INSIDE THE PREMIER SUBARU WRX STI TYPE RA

  

 

Premier Subaru is one of the lucky dealers to have picked up the 2018 Subaru WRX STi Type RA. This is one of only 500 in stock. 

The Type RA stands for "record attempt", based on the vehicle's 2017 Nurburgring speed record for a four-door sedan in a modified STi Type RA.

With its gaping hood scoop and massive wing, the rally car looks like a toy car out of a fanboy's wildest dream.  The main difference from the STi - the benchmark for giant wings and four-door rally fun - starts with less weight for better performance.  Carbon fiber is used in the roof and wing, the spare tire is removed, and the 19-inch alloy wheels are lighter, contributing to an estimated 50 pound-weight drop.  The gold rims make a return as well. 

STi horsepower has upgraded to 310 horsepower.  It still has the STi's other great features, such as short throw shifter, Driver Controlled Center Differential, and BBS Brakes. 

To have a chance to view the STi Type RA for yourself, call us at 1(800) 411-4551, or stop by 205 North Main Street, Branford. 

 

KIA SOUL RATED ONE OF THE BEST FAMILY CARS OF 2018


 

For the second year in a row, the Kia Soul has been named among the 10 Best Family Cars of 2018 by Parents magazine and Edmunds. Experts and editors tested hundreds of new models and selected winners based on value, safety features, convenience and other family friendly attributes. 

"Being recognized as a top family car by Parents magazine and Edmunds for the second consecutive year is a tremendous honor for our Soul urban passenger vehicle," said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning, Kia Motors America.  "This is yet another testament to the world-class quality, value, and packaging we deliver to our customers."

Parents magazine and leading car shopping and information network Edmunds have partnered for over 10 years to recognize the top vehicle choices for families looking to purchase a new car.  Like years prior, 2018 winners were awarded after a stringent, six-month long selection process.  "The fun design of the Kia Soul gives families more interior space, so car seats are easy to install," said Liz Vaccariello, editor-in-chief of Parents magazine.

Kia's iconic urban passenger vehicle offers a fun, funky and functional approach to everyday driving.  The 2018 model focuses on expanding the availability of UVO1 across the model range, adding the innovative infotainment system to the Base Convenience Package as well as to Soul Plus as standard equipment. The Soul Plus Primo Package now adds Smart Cruise Control (SCC)2 and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)2.

PREMIER SUBARU KIA TO BE INVOLVED IN BRANFORD FESTIVAL & ROAD RACE

    
   

Representatives from Premier Subaru and Premier Kia in Branford are preparing to take part in the Branford Festival taking place on Saturday, June 16, and the Branford Road Race taking place on Sunday, June 17. 

The Branford Festival has taken place every year since 1985.  Visitors can enjoy a spectacular array of food choices including funnel cakes, baked potatoes, pulled pork sandwiches, empanadas, and lobster rolls.  There will also be kids activities and amusement rides provided by the Rainbow Amusements Company, plus a craft fair, and musical entertainment, including tributes to Bon Jovi and David Bowie. 

Also happening is the 8th annual Gary Dinello Classic Car Cruise happening on Sunday, June 17, prior to the road race. 

The Branford Road Race has been running even longer than the festival - the 1st event was 1979.  The race is the brainchild of Ray Figlewski, an honored customer who has been battling Parkinson's Disease and runs the event to raise money for Parkinson's awareness.  The race also helps many local charities including the Connecticut Advocates for Parkinson's and Camp Rising Sun, who Premier has assisted for many years.  The event attracts at least 3,000 people every year to either the 5-mile run, 2-mile health walk or the 1-mile fun run. 

Ray says, "When I started(the race), there were two things I wanted it to be: really good for my runners and a great community event." 

For more information, feel free to contact us at 1(800) 411-4551 for Premier Subaru and (203) 315-2050 for Premier Kia.

Premier Subaru, CT Customer Reviews


Here Are Some Examples:
"Incredible. Sterling & Paolo Wonderful"- Claire, Satisfied Subaru Sales Customer

We looked at several options with Sterling. He was very informative and easy to work with. He was knowledgeable about the cars and honest, no games. He reviewed the finances carefully and gave us enough data to make the decision that was best for me. There were no surprises. The dealership gave us a good offer on my trade. Paulo knows her cars and was patient with me learning all the new bells and whistles I had not yet had in a car as mine was 6 years old (I am new to all the technology). And she made if fun, not anxiety producing. End to end I am very happy with the entire experience. Thanks Sterling and Paola!


"Kia Optima Purchase"- Sheila & Joe, Satisfied Kia Sales Customer

Jeremy and Carlos were professional, friendly and straightforward. They made our experience free from stress and we feel that we got a good, fair deal. We recommend the whole team that helped us get our car, including Brian and Jeff. Jeremy gave us a follow-up call and we feel that we can trust the Premier Kia team.
