It seems only Indonesia dominated car sales filled by the segment of the car with 7 passenger accommodation, where other countries are generally more than 50% of their car sales dominated by a car with only 5 passengers. With sales of more than 1 million units per year, this unique market certainly appeals to some automotive manufacturers to develop 7 passenger cars in Indonesia.
Starting from the present in 2017, the LMPV segment is startled by new products that cannot be underestimated, ranging from Mitsubishi Xpander and Wuling Confero S. Both of these cars cannot be underestimated, because Xpander managed to book bookings of up to 6,000 units in GIIAS and Wuling itself with the relief and features offered at an irrational price makes this car one of the worth to consider.
But Xpander’s honeymoon period is likely to soon be disrupted, as 3 manufacturers have prepared new ammunition for both of their products that have the 7 seat SUV genre at the end of this year. First is the Honda BR-V facelift, the Honda BR-V is said to have different front and rear shapes and improvements in the interior sector and features to attract potential buyers of Honda. The use of LED bounce headlights, new steering wheel and LED taillights become one of the excellent features in this car later.
Then 2018 car models Toyota Rush and Daihatsu Terios 2018 will also glide at the end of 2017 or early 2018 with a new model without condense and the same new engine with Avanza dual vvt-i. The highest type of Toyota Rush is said to be equipped with more sophisticated safety features, power back door and digital AC. It is said that the price will also penetrate 300 million to compete with HR-V which until now Toyota has no solution.
