Today consisting of 10 auto sales and service locations in Illinois and Wisconsin, the Rosen Motors Group started with one Nissan dealership in Milwaukee a quarter century ago. To mark its 25th anniversary, that original location, Rosen Nissan Milwaukee, is giving away a new 2015 Nissan Versa subcompact this month through a partnership with “The Morning Blend” TV show on TODAY’S TMJ4.
Greater Milwaukee residents who are 18 years of age or older can enter to win the new Versa by visiting www.jrn.com/tmj4/members, registering as a member and providing basic contact information for the “25 Days of Rosen” car giveaway. From now through Aug. 22, one finalist will be announced daily on “The Morning Blend,” with the grand-prize winner to be named on Aug. 29. The TV show airs Monday through Friday at 9 a.m.
“The Rosen Motors Group is giving away three Versas this year to mark its anniversary, but this latest promotion is particularly special because it’s coming from the dealership that started it all,” said Jeff Rosen, general manager of Rosen Nissan Milwaukee. “We’re extremely grateful to the countless Milwaukee drivers who have supported our business over the years, and we hope that the ’25 Days of Rosen’ Versa giveaway can act as a small token of our appreciation.”
With the Versa recently refreshed for the 2015 model year, the lucky vehicle winner will benefit from a number of upgrades. On its exterior, the 2015 Nissan Versa features larger headlights, a newly standard chrome-plated grille and a new design for the fog-light finisher. Inside the cabin, drivers receive a revised center-stack shape, a new white LED meter display and a higher-quality steering wheel with standard audio controls. For hands-free phone calls, Bluetooth connectivity is also now standard across all Versa trims.
Whether it’s the weekend excursions to the beach or the long road trips on the Interstate, we put our cars through a lot in the summer, making it all the more important to keep them running smoothly with frequent service. Nissan wants to drill that idea home with its vehicle owners and lessees, so from now through Sept. 30, the auto brand is holding its Keep Summer Rolling Service Sweepstakes to build awareness while giving away some awesome daily prizes.
If you’ve already purchased or leased a Nissan from our Chicagoland or Milwaukee Nissan dealerships, you can visit the sweepstakes website at keepsummerrolling.nissanusa.com and enter your VIN to register to win an instant prize or the grand prize: your choice of a brand-new 2015 Nissan Altima, Rogue or 370Z coupe. The site can also help you find your nearest dealer to schedule service, but to ensure you receive the closest attention to detail during maintenance, we recommend making an appointment with Rosen Nissan Milwaukee or Rosen Nissan Gurnee
The Nissan Altima midsize sedan and Nissan Rogue compact crossover SUV were both recently redesigned to be more responsive and fuel efficient, and they now return up to 38 mpg and 33 mpg on the highway, respectively. That means you’ll be able to bypass the gas station a lot more if you’re selected as a grand-prize winner, though regular maintenance at the dealership will still be important. Even that chore will cost you less, however, as each grand-prize vehicle comes with a one-year Nissan Security+Plus Prepaid Maintenance Plan.
Don’t delay — enter the Keep Summer Rolling Service Sweepstakes today for your chance to win! And while you’re at it, commit to keeping your vehicle in shape by scheduling regular service at one of our Nissan dealerships.
Purchasing a highly affordable car can often mean settling on a barebones set of features and stripped-down styling, but Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com has found the 2014 Hyundai Veloster to be a clear exception to that rule. The auto-research site recently ranked the Veloster at No. 2 on its list of the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 for 2014, citing the compact hatchback’s unique three-door design and its excellent value that has become synonymous with the Hyundai brand.
Outside, the Hyundai Veloster sports aggressive styling that is augmented by large LED-accented headlights, while inside the cabin, it has a number of standard features that will appeal to younger buyers. All 2014 Veloster models come with Bluetooth connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, USB and auxiliary input jacks, and a largest-in-class seven-inch LCD touchscreen with a rearview camera. Drivers will also receive value from the Veloster long after their purchase, as the hatchback returns up to 36 mpg on the highway.
“Often times the dangers of buying an inexpensive car can include losing a sense of individual style and forgoing some pretty convenient technology features, but instead, the Hyundai Veloster provides an engaging exterior design that is unmatched in the industry and a load of standard in-car connectivity,” said Scott Levy, general manager of Rosen Hyundai. “Also, if buyers want to up the cool factor when it comes to performance and style, they can go with either the Veloster Turbo or the new Veloster RE:FLEX Edition.”
Housing a 1.6-liter twin-scroll turbocharged GDI four-cylinder engine, the 2014 Hyundai Veloster Turbo boasts 201 horsepower and a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio while harnessing that impressive output with sport-tuned steering and Torque Vectoring Control. On the other hand, the new 2014 Veloster RE:FLEX Edition offers an exclusive Ice Pearl paintjob, 18-inch alloy wheels with a chrome finish, chrome hood accents and door handles, and RE:FLEX badging. Buyers of the Veloster RE:FLEX Edition also have the option of black or red full-leather seating that is complemented by Piano Black accents, illuminated door sills and a 450-watt eight-speaker Dimension premium sound system.
