HONDA Malaysia Sdn Bhd’s “SMS & WIN” contest held during the Chinese New Year holiday to reward its customers was a big success.
An official handover ceremony was held at Tiong Nam Motor (M) Sdn Bhd for the Grand Prize winner and five Golden Prize winners.
The company presented a Honda Jazz 1.5L to Grand Prize winner Hasmawati Hussin, while the five Golden Prize winners took home an iPhone X each.
The contest was held between January 22 and March 11 and was open to all Honda owners, except for the reconditioned (recon) cars. There were more than 43,000 submissions and 1,006 won various prizes worth a total of RM198,255.
The prizes included a Honda Jazz, iPhone Xs and Bank Simpanan National (BSN) premium savings certificates.
“The ‘SMS & WIN’ contest was held because we want to celebrate the festive season with all Honda customers. I would like to extend my appreciation to all participants for their support towards this campaign and congratulations to all winners.
“Honda Malaysia will continue to strive to provide high-quality products and excellent after-sales service.
“Last but not least, we look forward to the next milestone that we would achieve, together with the support from all our customers,” said Honda Malaysia managing director and chief executive officer Toichi Ishiyama in a statement.
Hasmawati, who owns a Honda City, said: “I was truly surprised when I received the exciting news that I won a Honda Jazz. I have always loved the spaciousness and sporty looks of the Jazz, especially the stylish Lunar Silver Metallic colour.
“Besides its unique features of being fun and fuel efficient, the feature I love most is the flexible cargo space with versatile ULTRA Seats, which can be converted into four configurations.
“This makes the Jazz a very practical car for family outings while staying nifty and fun to drive in the city,” she said.
Designed with the concept of “Man Maximum, Machine Minimum”, the Jazz delivers a compact and highly efficient package through maximising the space for occupants while minimising the space utilised by the car.
The Jazz is the only hatchback that makes creative use of space with the ULTRA Seats, which has four modes - Utility, Long, Tall and Refresh.
Powered by Honda’s signature 1.5L i-VTEC engine coupled with Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) that was developed under Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology, the Jazz offers fuel efficiency and optimal performance.
