Singapore, 28 October 2017 – Enthusiastic shoppers turned up in full force today when the doors of the automobile car show Cars@ Expo opened at 10am.

 

Visitors flocked to the event to look at car models and accessories from more than 40 exhibitors. By mid-day, more than 100 vehicles had been sold.

 

Held at Halls 5 and 6 of the Singapore Expo Convention & Exhibition Centre, this is the second edition of the event this year after the previous show in May.

 

Whether you are looking to zip around in a new car, pre-owned model or keen on purchasing new accessories for your current car, there are still great promotions and discounts to enjoy with one more day to the event on Sunday.

 

Bring your family members and friends in tow with you to the automotive event to see your preferred cars up close and get in the driver’s seat.

 

Mr Kelvin Lee, 50, Manager, who dropped by today with his wife, liked how he was able to see a wide range of car brands at one go.

 

He said: “We had no intention of buying anything but we ended up being sold by the salesman. This is a beautiful platform for buyers to walk and look at prices and gain knowledge and awareness of what is good with the reputable dealers”

 

Organised by ST Classifieds, Cars@Expo is a one-stop venue for car enthusiasts and newbies alike.

 

Some exhibitors include Das WeltAuto, Yong Lee Seng Motor and Motorway SsangYong — as well as popular car brands such as Honda, BMW, SEAT and Nissan. Commercial vehicles are also on sale. 

 

Accessories from ZMC Automotive, Maka GPS Technologies and Stamford Tyres are also available.

 

There are good deals on car-care accessories, such as car coating systems, dash cams and interior shampoos. For instance, a F800 Pro dash cam full set was selling today for only $598 instead of $698.

 

All visitors who spend a minimum of $100 stand a chance to win an electronic scooter from Mobot. Car buyers will also receive a $50 Esso petrol voucher, while stocks last.

 

Mr Marc Chan, General Manager of Singapore Mobil, said: “ST Classifieds is a powerful name on its own and their shows are always successful. Buyers are always looking for special prices and promotions, I have confidence in SPH and we are off to a good start with good quality and good price”
