DFSK made quite a buzz during the Indonesia International Motor Show 2018 recently. The model was crowned the best SUV in the event, making the China-made car one of the most favorite. It was also the one that is tested by visitors the most, further proving that SUV has made a pretty big impact on Indonesia’s automotive industry. You can read everything about the car on the official website of dfsk indonesia but it would not do any harm to get a preview of it here. See, there are reasons why the appointing of DFSK Glory 580 as the best SUV becomes a surprise. First off, it is made in China. As you know, products made in China are oftentimes considered, well, poor. If they were not a cheaply made knockoff of another more famous brand, they would be something original but without proven quality, comfort, and safety. So, it was not a wonder why people may scratch their head knowing that the country has produced an SUV brand. Is it safe? Is it comfortable? It turns out that DFSK managed to defy each and every question people have about it. The comfort level is comparable to that of more established brands. The features are high-tech and can be compared to those of other brands. DFSK really stands against its competition pretty well, further proving that not all China-made products are poor in every sense of the word.
What’s more is its price. Despite everything it has under the hood—comfort level, features, and whatnot—DFSK manages to put out its offering without that additional burden in the form of costliness. It would seem like the maker understands that while everyone may want a car, not everyone can afford something over the top. As a result, DFSK comes out as one of the most affordable SUV brands ever invented, at least in terms of Indonesian market.
This is also another thing that makes DFSK’s win at the IIMS 2018 a big surprise. Indonesia is a market that is still dominated by MVPs and other models such as hatchback and sedan. DFSK’s ability to emerge victorious during the event serves a proof that Indonesian customers have a dynamic taste and preference. The shift in interest toward SUVs indicates a strong and positive trend within Indonesia’s automotive trend. This is more in line with the change that has been going around on international level. Once the global community fixes its eyes on SUVs, Indonesia should adopt the new paradigm in order that it can compete with other countries.
