UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has officially launched a new showroom in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur located at Pusat Komercial Jalan Kuching, Jalan Kepayang off Jalan Kuching, Kuala Lumpur.

Developed at a cost of about RM1 million, the new showroom serves as an outlet for sales of new Toyota vehicles, and incorporates Toyota’s Next Generation Showroom concept. The showroom can display up to three models and comes equipped with shaded delivery bays, as well as a lounge for customers with various amenities including free Wi-Fi connectivity.

Meanwhile, UMWT is currently upgrading the present 2S (service and spare parts) centre at Kawasan Perusahaan Segambut to meet the increased demand for aftersales services in the area. “The growing number of Toyota vehicles required us to expand our facilities and from our studies, the existing 2S outlet in Segambut requires additional capacity to cope with this greater number of customers.

“Therefore, we are expanding the outlet to cater for the aftersales and in the meantime, opened this new showroom to cater to those who wish to view and purchase Toyota vehicles,” said Ravindran Kurusamy, president of UMWT.

“Toyota’s Next Generation Showroom concept is intended to re-invent the way car showrooms are designed, with the customer as the foremost priority. Customers will now have an experiential environment that is related to the type of vehicle on display,” explained Akio Takeyama, deputy chairman of UMWT.
