Our Paralympians have done us proud, and Naza Corporation Holdings is rewarding them for their efforts and achievements with a new Kia Sportage for each of the gold medal winners at the 2016 Rio Paralympics. Currently, Malaysia’s gold medal count stands at three; Abdul Latif Romly in the long jump T20 category, Mohd Ridzuan Mohd Puzi in the T36 100 m sprint, and Ziyad Zolkefli in the F20 shot put event.

Ridzuan was the first to clinch gold for Malaysia, winning the T36 (cerebral palsy) 100 m sprint with a time of 12.07 seconds, while shot put competitor Ziyad broke his own world records en route to his gold medal-winning 16.84 m record. Long jump T20 category competitor Abdul Latif Romly also surpassed his own world records three times, with a best jump of 7.60 m on his third attempt.

In addition to the new vehicle, Naza Corporation Holdings is also rewarding our gold-winning Paralympians with residences at Trion 888, a Naza TTDI development at Equine Park in Seri Kembangan. The RM350,000 residential suite with a built-up area of 450 sq ft includes numerous facilities such as a swimming pool, multipurpose room, gymnasium, changing room, lift, laundry facilities and a surau, and is expected to be ready by the end of 2017.


“Naza TTDI is proud to be part of our group’s initiative to support and reward the success of our paralympic athletes. We decided to reward a unit each of Trion 888 as the residential suite is well-catered for the lifestyle of the younger generation, a group that our athletes are in,” said Naza TTDI group managing director SM Falique SM Nasimuddin.

In Malaysia, the Kia Sportage is available as the base 2.0 KX Line at RM121,888 and the range-topping 2.0 GT Line at R141,888. Both variants are powered by the Korean automaker’s 2.0 litre Nu MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine, producing 155 PS at 6,200 rpm and 192 Nm at 4,000 rpm.
