These days Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina, has been in our country. With his visit, it seems that commercial relations between both powers come at a better time than when was his predecessor in office. However, the news that we bring you nothing has to do (partly) with the relations between Spain and Argentina.
As we have learned, The Casa Rosada (the name given to the official home of the President of Argentina) needs a New armored vehicle for the President. The firm that has served this type of vehicle the Argentine Government has traditionally been Mercedes-Benz, in the struggle for the manufacture of the model has been suddenly Kia.
The South Korean firm is ready to carve out an image and reputation as a manufacturer of reliable cars and some luxurious dye. In Argentina is one of the brands most sold, however, to obtain the construction of such vehicle accrue you advertising more than remarkable. In addition, and in contrast to Mercedes-Benz, Kia has best credentials in terms of the budget that can spend in Argentina for this vehicle since the budget of the Casa Rosada seems a bit adjusted.
It another point that Kia has, is that during the time that Macri was head of Government in their territorial demarcation, it was used as a vehicle to move a Sedona (our old Carnival). In this case the vehicle that was used was not armored, but its crystals were reinforced to withstand possible attacks against it.
Make Kia the contract to manufacture this armoured vehicle you would be gaining the pulse to nothing less than Mercedes-Benz. As a curiosity, it must be said that the armored vehicle proposed by the star brand is manufactured in our country. However, remains to be seen what are the requirements that asks the pink house for this vehicle and if Kia is able to provide them by more affordable than the Mercedes-Benz.
