Kelley Blue Book Used Vehicle Values Now Accessible in Spanish
In an effort to bring reliable automotive information to America's Spanish-speaking community, Kelley Blue Book, the trusted resource for used and new car information, has signed agreements with Hispanic Internet sites Yahoo! Espanol and YupiMSN. Through these agreements Kelley Blue Book used car values will be available through translated and co-branded Web pages from these companies.
Vehicle trade-in, private-party and retail values for used car models dating back to 1982 can now be found quickly and easily in Spanish not only on popular portal sites frequently visited by the Hispanic community as well as kbb.com .
"This is just the first step in a long-term strategy to bring dependable automotive information to the Hispanic community," said Stephen Henson, vice president of marketing and business development. "We have always been about empowering consumers and helping them to make more informed automotive buying and selling decisions and we are glad to be bringing that sense of empowerment to the Spanish-speaking community."
Kelley Blue Book used car values are now available by logging onto www.espanol.yahoo.com and clicking on "autos." Consumers can reach the same comprehensive information at www.yupimsn.com in mid-December.
The company expects to offer additional Spanish content, including new car pricing, tips, tools and advice in the coming months.
