The Manila International Auto Show is back in full, physical force

April 8, 2022

After two years of absence due to the Covid pandemic, one of which was even pushed to commence online, which is quite unusual for a motor show, the prestigious Manila International Auto Show is finally back in full, physical form. Held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City, this year’s MIAS will run from April 7 to 10, and will feature the latest wares from some of the country’s top car brands today.

These include Peugeot which will showcase its all-new 2008 SUV, Subaru and its all-new Forester and BRZ, and Changan with its recently-launched SC35 Plus. Also included in the show is Volvo with its showcase of  its Boost Hybrid technology models such as the S90, XC60, and SC90.

Furthermore, Nissan graces the occasion with a pavilion highlighting its LEAF and the Nissan Intelligent Mobility technology. And there’s also Geely with its sleek and stylish Coolray Special Edition (SE), and Cherry with its Tiggo 8 Pro and Tiggo 8 Pro PHEV, Foton and its Thunder 2.0 pickup.

GAC Motor greets everyone as it’s one of the the first booths to see at the entrance of the main hall. For its MIAS debut, the Chinese carmaker showcases the GS8 SUV and the aggressively-stylish Empow, its speed-oriented sports sedan. Of course, Mitsubishi, Chevrolet, Maserati, Jeep, MINI, and MG are also showcasing their latest wares.

All these and a whole lot more at this year’s Manila International Auto Show! Catch the action, but before you head out, be sure to observe IATF Minimum Health Protoyocols such as wearing face masks and social distancing (as much as possible.
