KIA HITS BACK AT CAR THIEVES WITH EXTRA SECURITY STEP NOW AVAILABLE AT SPEEDWELL KIA
Kia Motors (UK) Limited marks its commitment to its customer’s vehicle security with the launch of the new KiaSafe case nationwide. Any customer making a purchase of a new or used Kia model with a keyless entry system, will now get the KiaSafe case from participating dealerships, available at Speedwell Kia.
The KiaSafe case has been developed to stop thieves using relay attack devices to obtain the frequency from the car key to enable them to access the vehicle. The case acts in a similar way to a Faraday cage, eliminating the possibility with a layer of metal inside the case that blocks the theft device.
Raul Martinez, Sales Manager at Speedwell Kia commented; “At Kia, the safety of our customer’s vehicles is paramount and our new KiaSafe case is the ultimate accessory to help us safeguard our customers from vehicle theft. For more information on the KiaSafe case, please visit Speedwell Kia to speak with one of our friendly representatives on how this new device works.”
The KiaSafe case is available from participating dealers during the handover process and is also available to purchase from Speedwell Kia for £9.99 allowing existing owners to benefit.
David Hart, Customer Experience Manager at Kia Motors UK, commented on the lengths that thieves go to to steal cars; “The security of our customers’ vehicles comes second only to safety and we are as concerned about the hacking of keyless entry systems as customers, the police and the insurance industry.
“Our engineers are developing additional levels of protection for future vehicles and these will be applied as soon as is feasible given production schedules and new model introductions.
“We encourage owners to adopt protection behaviours as advised by the Police, such as not leaving keyless entry fobs in the front door lock of their home or close to windows and to use the KiaSafe to ensure their key fobs are rendered safe from hacking.”
As a global manufacturer, Kia Motors Corporation is constantly working to improve and enhance the security of vehicles. Kia’s Research and Development engineers are working to ensure that future keyless entry systems are impervious to attack.
Speedwell stocks a wide range of new and used Kia vehicles, including the all-new Ceed, with prices starting from £18,600.
