“It’s the Toyota Mabolo premium lifestyle center—the biggest, newest and most exciting automotive showroom in the country,” enthused Joseph Lo, Toyola Mabolo executive vice president.
Located at SM City Cebu, the 3,000 square foot satellite is an extension of the Toyota Mabolo franchise. The sleek and streamlined interiors smack of the company’s goal to open the showroom amid the pandemic, to inspire not only the automotive industry, but other businesses as well, to elevate their standards, keep the economy humming and solve unemployment.
Here’s more good news from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers and the Truck Manufacturers Association: Inspite of the economic slowdown, vehicle sales in the first quarter of 2021, posted an 8.9 percent increase compared to January/February 2020, which were pre-pandemic months.
According to Lo, the center will be showcasing long-awaited new models this year such as the all-new Land Cruiser 300 and the GR Yaris. However, its priority is still the Philippine-manufactured vehicles like the Vios and Innova, to generate local employment.
Indeed, this premium showroom has a unique concept, offering Gazoo Racing high-performance products and GR merchandise at its GR Garage. It also has a Chat Lounge where avid motorists can compare notes. It’s quite an experience, never before in the industry!
Drop by the showroom soon, located at the lower ground floor of SM City Cebu. With such excellent sales and marketing services, you might just end up driving a vehicle home!
