MANILA: A 22-year-old computer science student won a brand new Hyundai Kona as the grand prize in the Shell “Spin for Great Journeys” raffle promotion that took place last December.
Julius Drey Latag decided to give his luck when he stumbled upon a poster promoting the raffle at the Shell station along the JP Laurel Freeway in Lipa City, Batangas. When it was announced that he had won the raffle, he couldn’t believe he was finally going home with a car he would only see in Hyundai showrooms and auto magazines.
“This is really my first car,” said Latag. “It’s new. She’s a real beauty, and I don’t want to have any stripes on it!
The globally acclaimed Hyundai Kona features head-turning styling and a modern, comfortable interior. It has been recognized by various international organizations which award awards for its exceptional power, comfort and safety features. The Kona is powered by a 2.0-liter Atkinson gasoline engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Its Euro 4-compliant engine generates maximum power of 149 hp at 6,200 rpm and maximum torque of 18.3 kg-m at 4,500 rpm. The vehicle features 51.8% AHSS bodywork that improves its safety ratings in various crash tests in Europe and America.
With his new car, Latag plans to take his father and siblings on a trip to Tagaytay. His all-new Kona is ready to provide safe and smooth trips for his family.
