Hyundai offers limited-time rewards on Sonata

Hyundai’s three Saudi distributors — Al-Wallan Motors in Riyadh, Mohammed Yousuf Naghi Motors in Jeddah, and Almajdouie Motors in Dammam — are offering great deals on the current 2018 Hyundai Sonata. With different deals for each region, the company said that the buyers are being offered a combination of big savings, easy payment plans, and free servicing, with more details on specific offers available from local Hyundai showrooms.

“With Sonata already a favorite with buyers in Saudi Arabia, this is a great chance for customers wanting to upgrade from a compact sedan to a more spacious, dynamic, and stylish model, while taking advantage of extremely competitive deals that put Sonata even further ahead of its rivals,” the carmaker said.

The promotion runs until October across all Hyundai showrooms in the Kingdom.

Created at Hyundai’s California Design Studio, the 2018 Sonata builds on the model’s legacy stretching back through three decades of success. For this latest version, the dramatic appearance is highlighted by Hyundai’s signature “Cascading Grille” in front, with sleek styling from front to rear giving the sedan a powerful, dynamic stance.

The interior style matches the exterior appearance, with a premium look and feel, including a sporty three-spoke steering wheel and piano-key buttons to control the audio system and heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The 2018 Sonata can be equipped with an optional seven-inch color display audio touchscreen, and enabled for Apple CarPlay integration. The available navigation system is enhanced with a bird’s-eye-view feature.

Convenience features offered include remote engine start with smart key, so drivers can warm the engine and run the air conditioning before getting into the car. Smartphones can now be charged without a plug using the available wireless charging pad (Qi standard).

Every 2018 Sonata can be equipped with blind spot detection (BSD) with rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA), and front and rear parking assist (PAS). Working in conjunction with the standard rearview camera, RCTA gives drivers peace of mind that the road behind them is clear. 

The Hyundai Sonata features a selection of advanced, all-alloy four-cylinder engines, including 2.4-liter MPI and 2.4 GDI engines, both with six-speed automatic transmission, and a two-liter turbocharged GDI with eight-speed automatic transmission.


Shell KSA supports special needs children

Shell KSA supports special needs children

Shell Saudi Arabia has announced the continuation of its sponsorship for the Disabled Children’s Association (DCA) art program for two years (2018-2019). The announcement, made at an event organized by the DCA on Nov. 12, is part of Shell Saudi Arabia’s ongoing support for children with special needs.

Since its establishment in 1981, the Disabled Children’s Association has become one of the largest institutions specialized in the care of children with special needs in the Arab world.

The program held last month promoted the skills and artworks of such children.

To mark the collaboration between the two organizations, Abdulrahman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Suwailim, vice chairman of the Disabled Children’s Association’s executive committee, presented a commemorative shield to Mohammed Al-Zomaia, Shell Saudi Arabia’s general manager for corporate development.

“At Shell, we believe in creating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Today’s talent is more diverse than ever before. An inclusive environment is key to innovating, developing and retaining talent, and it begins with the youngest members of our communities,” said Al-Zomaia.

Shell has been active in the Kingdom for over seven decades and has a wide variety of social investment activities in the country, many of which are centered around youth empowerment, such as Shell Intilaaqah and FutbolNet.

Shell Intilaaqah aims to strengthen young people’s career options by enabling them to switch from being an employee to becoming an employer, or making the transition from seeking employment to creating employment. Shell’s trainees have set up 1,100 businesses, in addition to 500 existing small and medium businesses. Together, they created over 3,000 jobs. Shell Intilaaqah has been training Saudi entrepreneurs since 2010. Over the past years, Shell Intilaaqah trained, supported and mentored 10,000 Saudis — the majority of whom were women. 

Shell and Football Club (FC) Barcelona Foundation work together and use football to teach children the importance of values. The FutbolNet program is a 12-week football training course for children supported by dedicated coaches. Futbolnet aims to infuse values like respect, teamwork and commitment, which are key for the children to develop as happy, healthy and value-adding individuals.
