Autoshow is back with the latest and greatest

KUALA LUMPUR: The latest hot wheels on the market will once again be on full display here at the CarSifu Auto Show – the first in three years.

And for the first time, the display case will leave the Klang Valley, to Johor.

For the KL edition, car fans and the public will have the opportunity to view the latest car models for five days starting tomorrow at Mid Valley Megamall, daily from 10am to 10pm.

After it ends here, CarSifu Auto Show 2022 will move to Johor Baru’s The Mall, Mid Valley Southkey for the second round of the excitement from October 26-30.

Organized by Star Media Group, the event last took place in 2019 and was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Visitors to the auto show starting tomorrow can get up close and personal with some of the latest additions to the lineup from Volvo, Toyota, Subaru, Proton, Honda, Perodua and Nissan.

These latest rides come in sedan, hatchback, SUV and multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) body styles to cater to a wider range of customers.

While the traditional internal combustion engine is still the most popular choice among Malaysian motorists, the auto show will give a shout out to new energy vehicles such as hybrids and all-electric vehicles.

For Volvo, the XC40 Recharge Pure Electric is the first locally assembled electric vehicle (EV) in Malaysia.

Toyota presents the Corolla Cross Hybrid SUV and the sporty compact Vios and Yaris models.

Subaru presents its Forester and XV GT Edition SUVs with four-wheel drive, which are offered with the advanced “EyeSight” Advanced Driver Assist system.

In the meantime, look out for Proton’s three popular models: the recently unveiled X70 that comes with a locally assembled 1.5-litre TGDI engine, the X50, a best-selling compact SUV, and the affordable Saga that comes with a low starting price. .

Honda will showcase its all-new HR-V SUV model available in three powertrains: 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC, 1.5-liter DOHC VTEC Turbo and 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC Hybrid, as well as the new City V-Sensing variant equipped with Honda Sensing smart driver assistance system.

The resounding success of the year – the all-new, latest-generation Alza MPV – will be available on Perodua’s display. Visitors can view the range of safety, comfort and connectivity features of this seven-seat MPV.

If you’re in the market for a larger MPV, you might want to check out Nissan’s latest Serena S-Hybrid Premium Highway Star, which boasts a spacious and luxurious interior and great fuel economy.

Local custom car mat manufacturer Trapo Asia will unveil its new Trapo Classic Mark III and Hex II series at the auto show.

Trapo is known for its antibacterial range of car mats, offering a 12% discount on all car mats and a 20% discount on Oxtra accessories during the event.

Established in Melaka in 2016, Trapo will host a Trapo Time Attack Challenge race simulator, where visitors who complete the fastest lap will have a chance to win attractive prizes.
