If you’re looking to purchase or sell new or used vehicles, then Carlist.my should be in your browser’s address bar. It’s a comprehensive advertising website dedicated to vehicles; a sales platform that comes equipped with intuitive tools which come in handy when car keys are to change hands. Add to that the latest news and reviews that keep you posted on the latest in the industry, and you have a veritable online automotive repository. Thousands of Malaysians swear by it.
New Cars Galore
The website’s a stellar gateway to your next set of wheels, but to enrich the buying experience even further, Carlist.my has joined forces with the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) and Caltex to introduce the Carlist.my MAA Drive, Test & Buy Event 2017!
Taking place on 13 and 14 May, the inaugural automotive exhibition assembles a fleet of entries from major car manufacturers, models which manifest in all shapes and sizes to suit most tastes and budgets. Essentially, this arrangement eliminates the hassle of flitting from one showroom to another to discern, in person, how a particular car stacks up to the competition.
According to Hamish Stone, CEO of iCar Asia Limited, the Carlist.my MAA Drive, Test & Buy Event 2017 is a one-stop platform for visitors to compare, test and purchase their next new vehicle without needing to travel extensively
“Up till today, we have continued to deliver a trusted and convenient experience to all consumers on our online platform”, says Hamish Stone, CEO of iCarAsia Sdn Bhd, the parent company of Carlist.my. “Our new exhibition aims to bring that same digital experience to the on-ground level for all Malaysians to enjoy.”
In the friendly fray are Toyota, Mazda, Ford, Isuzu, Subaru, Volkswagen and other top brands, each one proudly fielding their latest creations which are made all the more attractive thanks to irresistible deals not found outside this event.
As the event’s title implies, visitors will not only have a chance to see, touch and size up the vehicles on display, but also receive the opportunity to take them for a spin on a specially prepared track area – this is the only automotive exhibition in the country that enables prospective purchasers to test drive various car brands both on and off the road!
Once they have made up their minds on which fancy motor to drive home, buyers can seek advice from Public Bank to complete the deal. The financial institution’s representatives will be on site to draw up the best offer for each expectant new car owner.
Datuk Aishah Ahmad, President of MAA, believes that being able to personally test drive the cars first before coming to a decision will also give consumers the confidence that they need to make the right purchase
“This initiative presents a unique and great opportunity for automotive brands in the country to reach out to more Malaysian consumers who are eager to buy a new car or upgrade from their older model in today’s challenging economy,” reveals Datuk Aishah Ahmad, President of the Malaysian Automotive Association.
“As buying a new car is a big decision for a household, the event is designed to be engaging for the whole family with a range of activities so that no one gets left out,” she adds, referring to the slew of attractions that will be available during the exhibition such as VR and F1 simulators, remote-controlled racing cars, inflatables, food trucks and even a ladies’ lounge with manicure and pedicure services.
Carlist.my will also be holding its very own ‘Grand Prix Challenge’ through which RM30,000 worth of petrol will be given away courtesy of Caltex, the official fuel partner of Carlist.my MAA Drive, Test and Buy Event 2017. If that isn’t enough, three RM450,000 American muscle cars are up for grabs as well! One of these fine examples from Motor City will end up on the driveway of one of the three lucky winners who purchases a new car using the Carlist.my website by 30 June 2017 (details here). A member of this brawny trio, the 2012 Ford Mustang 5.0, will grace the exhibition with its loud presence!
