There's plenty of fish in the sea to be picking out only what's available; The case is true when choosing a car to drive you places with ease. But fret not, as the annual Auto Focus Test Drive Festival (AFTDF) returns, happening from November 14 to 17, from 11 am to 9 pm, at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Concert Grounds in Pasay City.
Organized by Sunshine Television (STV), the AFTDF is deemed the biggest outdoor test-drive festival, featuring not only the benchmark auto units but also the latest models in the market. AFTDF is part of STV's annual trilogy of automobile industry service and merit programs, alongside the Auto Focus People’s Choice Awards (AFPCA) and the Auto Focus Media’s Choice Awards (AFMCA).
Like different fishes gathering to form one huge aquarium, the AFTDF exhibitors turn the MOA grounds into a car buff's haven. It's the perfect venue to try out the latest car models from local automobile manufacturers and importers, namely Honda, Kia, Mitsubishi, Nissan, SsangYong, Subaru, Suzuki, Chevrolet, Ford, Maxus, Changan, GAC, Ford, and Toyota—all fueled by Phoenix Petroleum.
Hopping from one showroom to another naturally takes days until a prospective car buyer reaches a decision; At AFTDF, it'll only get less than a day. Don't worry about spending a whole day under the sun because the venue is equipped with a first aid station, portalets, and a spacious parking space for your autos.
No need to drive through the hectic Metro Manila traffic just to move from one dealership to another. Test drive at the four-day Auto Focus Test Drive Festival—free admission!
