Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) 2010 - The Show Part 3

Lastly, let's take a look at what Hall 4 and Dewan Merdeka have offered to the visitors of KLIMS 2010. In Hall 4, there were 2 major car manufacturers which basically took up the whole hall. They are Mitsubishi and Hyundai. A small corner of the hall lies the FAKE batmobile. Sorry that there will no picture of that batmobile as it was not even worth a click.

Mitsubishi showcased 2 concept electric vehicles besides the already launched Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback and ASX crossover.

Hyundai also showcased a concept car, which ironically looks quite similar in concept, to Perodua's Bezza. Both have standard front doors with sliding back doors. Hhhhmmm...

Lastly in Dewan Merdeka, it is the heart of the green theme for this year's KLIMS. Participants are Toyota, Lexus and Honda which showcased latest hybrids alongside their already launched models.

Well, after walking like a headless chicken for 6 hours within the vicinity of PWTC, it's time to call it a day. What do I think of this installment of KLIMS? It could be better, much better. Compared to the previous show in 2006, it's only half of what it was. Luckily, the visit ended with a bang in Dewan Merdeka, which is the best part of the visit and looks international class.

It's best to visit on a weekday as the crowd during weekends and public holidays is just pure carnage. Parking facility is limited as well unless you want to risk your car being towed by our friendly DBKL tow trucks. By the way, I saw one car being towed away while waiting for the traffic lights to turn green going into Putra Bus Station.

But the main question is, will I go again in 2014? Most probably yes, but in between, I might try to take a trip up north to Thailand for the Bangkok International Motor Show.
