Local magician, Rodd Hogg, recently collected his new Kia Sportage from Roadside Kia in Coleraine and was instantly put under its spell!

Rodd, whose new series The Irish Magician, which is soon to Debut on a Sky channel, is one of 3 local personalities to pick up his brand new Kia from us.  Rodd specialises in close-up magic and is also Northern Ireland’s onlyprofessional pickpocket and is currently in high demand, having booked by and performed for many high profile celebrities, Liverpool FC boss Brendan Rodgers, rap star Tinie Tempah, the Northern Ireland Football Squad and Diana Vickers who hailed him the 'Irish Dynamo' to name a few.

Ian Lamont, Sales Manager, explained: “In early 2016 we provided three Kias - 2 Sportages and 1 Sorento - to 3 well-known figures in the province, all from the local area – Michael Dunlop, Ballymoney’s own superbike racing legend;  Liam Beckett, ex football manager, NI sports pundit and Ballymoney’s Black Santa; and Rodd Hogg, one of Ireland's most sought after, and most exciting professional magicians

“We’ve had ongoing professional relationships with each of these men for a few years now and they do so much in and for the local community – supporting local schools, sports clubs, businesses and charities.  We are so pleased we could extend our relationship with each of them even further.

Rodd explained: “I love the drive and the feel of the new Sportage and absolutely love the look of it and since I’ve been driving my own I’ve found that I see the new model everywhere!   

I am delighted that Roadside Garages have provided me with such a brilliant car and thank them for their great service, but most of all for the support they’ve shown me at this very busy stage of my career.”

Standard on the Kia Sportage ‘1’ are 16 inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, rain sensing front wipers, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors, leather trimmed steering wheel and hill-start assist control.

Also included is air conditioning, Bluetooth® with Voice Recognition and Music Streaming, USB & AUX Ports, a trip computer and Cruise Control.
