Amirah Che Azizuddin, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ARCA Corporation Sdn. Bhd. said “Malaysia is gearing towards Industry 4.0 and our automotive sector is growing from strength to strength every year. According to a recent study from PWC, 82% of Malaysians own a car, making us one of the nations with the highest car ownership rate. On the other hand, the increased complexity of vehicles has heightened the difficulties in performing do-it-yourself (DIY) repairs.

As the authorized dealer of Subaru, AMP looks at expanding the car brand’s market share in Malaysia through the launch of the new Subaru XV. Till October 2017, Subaru has sold 3,867 vehicles in Malaysia, setting the brand on 14th position after Volkswagen, Ford and Hino. In addition, Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV)’s demand in the ASEAN-India region has rose 2.5-fold to 1.3 million units in the decade to 2015 which could escalate to 2.1 million in 2020. The movement to have the revamped version of Subaru XV marks another new chapter in the brand’s aspiration, as it continues to enjoy strong demand in the category of all-wheel drive vehicles throughout the region.
In addition to the launch of AMP’s 4S Centre, AMP also unveiled the all new Subaru XV, a compact SUV with blockbuster entertainment and show-stopping value. Subaru XV’s distinct features range from its signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to the inclusion of electronic parking brake and the clever mix of bright orange and shades of grey that bring out your active character.
Besides being an authorized dealer for Subaru, AMP is also recognised for its involvement in Proton, Suzuki and Chevrolet. AMP is more than an independent service centre. In 2013, AMP signed its strategic partnership with Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles across nine Asian countries, including Malaysia. Since then, AMP also offers pertinent car sales and aftersales service for Subaru, a car brand with rising popularity in the country. This times with current consumers’ behaviour that skew towards the practicality of owning a car, in which most of them value aftersales services and car functionality over the design of the car.
Present at the launch, Mr Reza Mutalib, Executive Director of Motor Image, Subaru (above) shared that, “We are committed to working with brands that are best in their fields. It has been a great experience working with Aiman Motor Performance who shares the same vision with us which is to provide excellent level of quality in terms of product and service delivery to the customers. We believe that the introduction of AMP 4s Centre with dedicated service bays can greatly benefit our customers.”
