This year, I managed to attend the Singapore Motorshow 2017. Last year I was invited but I was down with a terrible illness.
Here are the list of launches and showcases that I attended on the first day. I enjoyed a few of the creative presentations as they unveil the cars.
Audi Q2, Audi A5 Coupe, Audi R8 Spyder
The star of the Audi is the R8 Spyder, flown in specially for the Motorshow, but not homologated (approved) for sale.
Citroen Grand C4 Picasso and C4 Picasso
Putting up an impressive launch show with mannequin-pose intro before breaking into a spirited dance. Liv Lo was the emcee for Citroen.
DS 3 Cabrio
DS is a sub-brand from Citroen. The new DS 3 Cabrio continues the trend of compact cars with style.
It’s awarded the best 4-cylinder coupe by ST-Torque Awards 2016.
Stunning design, where most of us would have to contend with die-cast models.
It’s Kia’s first hybrid car in SUV crossover style and it’s going below S$110,000.
Mazda MX-5 RF and CX-9 SUV
Jessica Liu and Pierre Png are the brand ambassadors for Mazda. The headlights look menacing.
One of the more interesting launch performances in the Singapore Motor Show 2017. I shot it using LG 360 CAM to let you have some fun in immersing in the event. Jean Danker was the emcee for Mitsubishi.
Nissan Note Medalist
Peugeot 3008 SUV
Yet another SUV is unveiled. Interesting headlight design and the 2-tone outlook to “sportify” the vehicle. Jade Seah was engaged as the emcee for Peugeot.
Toyota C-HR and Mirror Harrier
Toyota aims to strengthen their SUV range this year. C-HR stands for Coupe-High Rider, and this 1.2L turbo FWD variant will be coming to Singapore soon. The Mirror Harrier is a concept car and not for sale. Bobby Tonelli was the emcee for Borneo Motors Singapore.
Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet and Tiguan
Other new car model launches to look out when you visit the Singapore Motorshow 2017 at Suntec Convention Centre Levels 3-4:
