Daihatsu Malaysia will launch its latest commercial vehicle product - the New Gran Max panel van with automatic transmission (AT) and 1.5-litre DOHC DVVT engine - soon in Malaysia. In conjunction to the launch, Daihatsu Malaysia is offering an early-bird promotion with free 1-year service maintenance package for bookings made from 16th August to 30th September, 2018.
In comparison with the previous Gran Max with its standard fittings and manual gear transmission (MT) that was introduced 8 years ago, the new Gran Max AT van is designed to specifically cater the business requirements of local SME ‘on-the-go’ business owners, corporations and government agencies ensuring the vehicle is available in automatic gear and could accommodate up to 2,000kg of gross weight (with load). Taking Malaysia’s road conditions into consideration, Daihatsu equips the commercial vehicle with rear-wheel drive (RWD) function that offers drivers better initial acceleration and improves traction (driving grip). Meanwhile, the small 4.7m turning radius and power steering features are to support local driving habits and enhance easy handling.
The soon-to-be-launched new van is upgraded with enhanced fittings such as anti-lock braking system (ABS), dual front SRS airbags and collapsible steering for extra safety and to further conform in the Malaysian market.
As a long-standing Japanese brand in the country, Daihatsu pledges to continue the ‘trustworthy relationship’ with its customers by offering the new AT product at an affordable selling price of RM69,888, including the quality guarantee of 3 years warranty/100,000km.
