KUWAIT: In a demonstration of its commitment to be an integral part of the Kuwaiti youth’s culture and interest, Yusuf A Alghanim & Sons Automotive, the exclusive distributor of Chevrolet vehicles in Kuwait, hosted the Kuwait Corvette Club members at the Chevrolet Service Center on Wednesday evening, September 21, 2016.
It was a special event marked by smiles and friendly conversations that, in many ways, complements what has always made Chevrolet Alghanim exceptional-its dedication to build and sustain a strong, intimate relationship with its customers. Chevrolet Alghanim management welcomed the club members by acknowledging their outstanding passion for Corvette and everything it represents to them, all while commemorating the exceptional partnership the two parties share together. Club members were awarded with trophies and certificates in appreciation for the loyalty the Kuwait Corvette Club has demonstrated over the years.
Club members were also treated to a dedicated tour that introduced them to the service facilities available for all Chevrolet vehicles. In addition, they got to marvel at the impressive display of 70 Corvette models available at the service center. The 2016 Corvette Stingray powers ahead with new design packages, connectivity and technology enhancements that offer customers more personalization choices, convenience features and, most importantly, an unmatched combination of performance and efficiency.
