Here’s What You Need to Know About Attending Autoshows in Malaysia

If you’re familiar with Matta Fairs or food fairs, auto fairs are more or less the same. Just, with cars. Whether you’re a car enthusiast, or just a prospecting shopper itching to see what’s new on the block, auto fairs are a great place to look around. 

What Exactly Is an Autoshow/Autofair?

What is an auto fair or an auto show?An auto show, sometimes known as an auto fair, is a convention of various automakers and sometimes sellers displaying the best they offer to the public. These can consist of several booths organized by the manufacturer or company themselves. 

Additionally, cars sold at auto fairs tend to have sweeter deals than storefront visits. More on what to expect below. 

How Many Types of Autoshows/Autofairs Are Out There?

How many types of auto fairs are out there?Currently, there are two types – auto shows or auto fairs primarily display new cars or used cars as their bread and butter. On the other hand, another auto fair predominantly focuses on classic and custom cars. 

A perfect example is Tokyo Auto Salon Malaysia which we went to earlier this year, but more on that for another day. 

Are the Cars Displayed There for Sale?

It depends on what type of auto fair you go to. Classic car auto fairs? It depends on the organizer and exhibitors. But for most auto fairs, especially CARSOME Auto Fair, yes they do. You know those cars that they display in shopping malls? Same thing. 

Moreover, the cars on sale there will be at a discounted price with much better deals than storefront visits. 

What Can You Do at an Auto Fair?

Walk around and get a good feel of all the cars there! These exhibitors publicly display all their vehicles for customers to experience. Take a seat inside the car, ask for a test drive, or enquire about more details about the cars with the staff there!

Here’s the launch of the previous auto fairs we had in the past so you’ll know what to expect:

What Are the Benefits of Buying a Car at an Auto Fair?
