Better get ready, because the Philippines' biggest motoring event of the year is back. Organized by Worldbex Services international (WSI), the 9th Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) is set to invade the World Trade Center Manila and Philippine Trade Training Center this April 4 to 7, 2013.
This year's show carries the theme “Innovation and Technology” to highlight the slew of technological features that cars of today come with. Innovations such as active park assist, full auto brake, pedestrian detection, electronic stability control, and bluetooth connectivity not only make driving more convenient and enjoyable, but also a whole lot safer. Just imagine what new toys are in store in this year's show.
Occupying two buildings and an outdoor display, the 2013 MIAS will yet again boast around 23,000 sq. meters of exhibit space with over 400 cars on display. Confirmed roster of carmakers include Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Porsche, Subaru, Toyota, and making its Philippine debut, Bentley. We'll keep you posted on what new cars will be launched at the show.
There are also other exciting activities that will surely blow your socks off. Russ Swift returns with his precision driving stunt show with Subaru. There have been rumors going around that he'll be doing stunts will the all-new BRZ, but we can't say for sure just yet. Ford will also host 4x4 off-road demo, which will star the all-new Ranger Wildtrak 4x4. Then, on the opening night, the Car Awards Group Inc. (CAGI) will crown a new 2012 - 2013 Car of the Year Philippines (COTY-P).
