KUALA LUMPUR: Edaran Tan Chong Motor (ETCM) is giving Malaysian public the chance to test-drive some of Nissan’s bestselling models at the Nissan Test-Drive Carnival in Ipoh and Malacca.

The star of the show will be the new Nissan X-Trail, set to be launched soon in Malaysia.

The X-Trail is said to come with many "world-firsts" and a Nissan-first in technology and safety features. Its new design and improved performance makes the X-Trail an innovative premium crossover, according to Nissan.

The carnival will run from Jan 17-18 (10am to 10pm) at Aeon Bandaraya, Malacca and Aeon Kinta City, Ipoh.

To welcome the Year of the Goat, ETCM is also announcing its ‘Joy of Abundance’ Chinese New Year deals and promotions on selected Nissan models that customers qualify for at the carnival and at showrooms nationwide.

The campaign, which began on Jan 3, will run until Feb 28  and offers Malaysians great savings and packages for Nissan models ranging from Teana, Serena S-Hybrid, Navara, Sylphy, Grand Livina, and X-Gear.

“We believe that by holding the Nissan Test-Drive Carnival, we bring an early festive Chinese New Year cheer to our customers, and we would like everyone to have the chance to experience what Nissan has to offer. We hope that our customers in the southern and northern region will be eager to grab the fantastic deals and packages we have in store for them, and enjoy many fun-filled activities for the family, with exciting giveaways. What is more, the all-new Nissan X-Trail will make an appearance at the carnival,” he said.
