The Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) 2019, co-sponsored by Michelin and TyrePlus, is just around the corner now. The second instalment of PACE will happen at the Setia City Convention Centre on November 2 and 3, and we have plenty of deals in store to make the event the best place to purchase your next vehicle.

PACE is welcoming Renault to the fold, and the French automaker, represented by official distributor TC Euro Cars (TCEC), will be showcasing its range that includes the Renault Megane RS 280 Cup hot hatch and the Renault Koleos SUV.

The distinctively-styled Koleos is part of TCEC’s innovative vehicle subscription programme called Renault Subscription, which allows one to drive the SUV without the usual hassle of vehicle ownership that we’ve come to accept as the norm. With Renault Subscription, there’s no hire purchase loan to commit to and no maintenance costs to worry about – regular servicing is included in the package, along with annual road tax and insurance.

Like Netflix or broadband internet, subscribing to a car means you can use it for as long as you want to, but you don’t actually own the car. That means that when it’s time for a change, you don’t have to worry about depreciation, not to mention the hassle that the process of selling a car brings.

TCEC estimates that depreciation, which is the single biggest cost in vehicle ownership, is typically 60% on average after the first three years. With a subscription plan, once the tenure is up, simply renew it or change to another car/plan according to your needs.

On the topic of switching, Renault Subscription has Fixed and Switch plans. Fixed is self-explanatory, while Switch customers can switch between the Koleos and Captur within the subscription period, and enjoy unlimited mileage too (Fixed subscribers are subject to a 20,000km per year mileage cap).

Renault Subscription plans for the Koleos start from RM2,299 per month, and if you sign up at PACE 2019, you’ll also be eligible for all the promos reserved for new car purchases at the venue. For a start, the first 150 customers will receive a combined RM2,450 voucher*, which includes a RM770 3M tinting voucher, a RM680 premium Babel Fit gym membership voucher, a RM500 Reebonz shopping voucher and a RM500 Kuzig Glanz car detailing voucher.

In addition, there will be a lucky draw for those with confirmed purchases, with 10 units of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 worth RM3,699* up for grabs, as well as a grand prize of a free holiday for two worth RM25,000*!

Renault is among good company at PACE 2019, which will see Audi, BMW, Bufori, Harley-Davidson, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Subaru, Volkswagen and Volvo participating. At PACE, you’ll be able to drive and purchase your dream car or bike – new or pre-owned. On top of special PACE promos, expect tempting year-end promos from the brands as well. As a bonus, you’ll even get to mingle with the people behind

The inaugural PACE last year was a runaway success, with 214 cars worth over RM50 million sold over two days – 180 units being brand new cars and 34 from the pre-owned selection. One lucky car buyer was also named the lucky draw grand prize winner, taking home a free holiday worth RM25,000.
