The two-day Sakal Auto Expo organised by Sakal Media Group concluded on a high note on Sunday, with Puneites flooding in huge numbers to see the variety of luxury and pre-owned cars displayed at Pandit Farms, Karve Nagar.
Leading dealers of Maruti from across the city participated in the expo with around 100 vehicles for people to check out and test drive. There was also a range of pre-owned cars available for those interested in buying a second-hand car.
Shrikant Vidhate, who is a government official, said he was quite satisfied with what the expo had to offer. “I visited the Sakal Auto Expo for the first time, and I must say that it was quite impressive. There is genuinely a great variety of Maruti vehicles here. I took a test drive of Swift, and I am planning to book it soon. I loved the expo,” he added.
People from all age-groups, youngsters as well as elderly, were seen taking rounds of the expo, observing the cars, discussing features and prices with the dealers.
Vaibhav Sali, an animator by profession said, “There is a good range of vehicles here, which is good because you get to see different cars offered by different dealers, all under one roof. This is certainly a great place for Maruti lovers. The dealers too are very helpful and have skilled staff, who guide us in our choices.”
Along with the customers, dealers too were satisfied with the kind of response shown by the public and were happy to get a good number of bookings, expecting more to come within the next week or so.
