We’ve now firmly wrapped up our coverage of the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show. You’ve seen all the launches and previews, pored over some of the concept cars and even had a look at the booth girls present, but here’s a quick roundup of everything that’s happened at the event.
Over at Honda, the brand showed Mugen concepts of the CR-V and Jazz and unveiled the interior of the facelifted HR-V, while Toyota launched the new Camry and previewed the Vios. Meanwhile, over next door, Lexus debuted the ES sedan and UX compact crossover for the first time in Malaysia.
Across the way, Naza made a splash, previewing the DS7 Crossback, Kia Cerato and Kia Picanto GT-Line. In the Malaysian corner, Perodua showcased two concepts, the hotted-up Myvi GT and the X-Concept; it also held a sneak peek public preview of its forthcoming SUV. Right across was the Proton stand, where it had the X70 out in public for the first time, and announced the December 12 launch date.
Two pick-ups were shown side to side – Mitsubishi brought out the facelifted Triton ahead of next year’s launch, and Ford launched the Ranger Raptor; the latter also previewed the facelifted Mustang. Hyundai brought a slew of cars at this year’s show, launching the facelifted Grand Starex, previewed the new Santa Fe and Kona and displayed the Accent, i30 N, Kona Electric and the hydrogen-powered Nexo.
Upstairs, Nissan brought along the electric-powered Leaf that will be launched in the second quarter of 2019, and also showcased its e-Power range extender electric vehicle technology that will also be introduced in the near future. Speaking of tech showcases, Isuzu also brought along its 1.9 litre Ddi Blue Power turbodiesel engine, alongside concepts of the D-Max and MU-X and accessory packages for the D-Max.
So that’s all for us at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, and we’ll leave you with a video roundup of everything there is to see at the show. Don’t forget that the show runs on at MITEC for another two days, so there’s still time to check out all these and more – and take part in a lucky draw to win yourself either a Perodua City, Honda City and Toyota C-HR. Tickets are priced at RM25 for adults on weekends.
