After awarding the Automobile of the Year at this year's People's Choice Awards, the motoring TV show Auto Focus will now hold its eighth annual outdoor motor show that will feature most of the cars that qualified for the polling contest. The 2012 Auto Focus Motorshow & Auto Expo will take place this weekend, November 8 to 11, at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds, just behind SMX. The organizers say this is "the country's biggest outdoor motor show."
This year, the show will be graced by 11 car brands: BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Hyundai, Isuzu, Kia, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot and Toyota. French carmaker Peugeot is even using the event to publicly launch its product lineup for the Philippine market: the 508, the 3008, the 5008 and the RCZ.
"Our main purpose is to serve as a veritable one-stop shop for those looking to buy a car," explains Auto Focus producer and host Ray Butch Gamboa. "Whatever the car of your dreams may be--a fuel-efficient subcompact, a luxury sedan, a sleek sports car, a family van, a rugged SUV or a utility pickup--it will be there for you to see and test-drive. Before a final choice is made, prospective buyers can compare similar models head-to-head when it comes to features and performance. They can look into the best deals, discounts and financing offers available. All these can conveniently be done on-site at the motor show, thereby eliminating the time-consuming ordeal of having to hop from one showroom to another."
The Auto Focus Motorshow & Auto Expo will be open from 11am to 9pm. Admission to the motor show is free. Visitors will be treated to hourly raffles, marching band exhibitions, a video racing competition, and music by the Flintstones Band.
See you there, guys!
