Skoda Test Drive Weekend

“MAW ENTERPRISES PVT. LTD, THE AUTHORIZED DISTRIBUTOR OF SKODA VEHICLES IN NEPAL, HAD INVITED PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS TO TEST DRIVE THEIR CARS AT THE GOKARNA FOREST GULF RESORT & SPA. OF COURSE, THERE WAS MORE TO IT THAN JUST THE TEST DRIVE SESSIONS.”

Well, how does a normal test drive session work out for you? You find your way to the nearest automobile showroom of your choice, discuss business with the sweet talking salesmen and finally get to take the car out for a spin. But again, how does it fare for you? You will probably find yourself driving at a snail’s pace in the weekday city traffic, shifting up to just the second or third gear and end up signing that cheque with the least idea on the actual performance of the car.

So the guys at the Skoda dealership here in Nepal had a different plan. On 28th September, 2013 they gave their regular test drive sessions a bit of a twist. Staying true to the brands luxury oriented values, this test drive session was organized in and around the premises of the serene Gokarna Forest Gulf Resort & Spa located in the outskirts of Kathmandu. And what better day to organize it than on a Saturday, when most of us have all the time in the world! With their well versed and enthusiastic sales team standing guard at the venue, Skoda had their entire line-up with the executive class Superb, versatile Yeti, compact Fabia and the sedan-on-a-budget Rapid lined up for their customers. Only the Laura was missed here, as the company is making preparations to replace it with the brand new Octavia.

The test drive route was well sorted with the potential Skoda customers having the privilege of testing the vehicle of their choice, starting from the winding downhill roads inside the resort, across the smooth country roads around the area, over broken down tracks and ending with the uphill drive back to the starting point. And the session didn’t end right there! Skoda had put up a fantastic BBQ and buffet lunch with free flow of drinks for their invited customers and their families who joined the session. The participants were also entitled with free access to the swimming pool at the resort. The invitees consisted of Skoda’s prospective customers who had expressed interest in their cars at the recently concluded NADA Auto Show. Skoda had invited around 100 prospective customers and they not only made sure that their clients had a deserving test-drive of the Skoda cars, but also insured that it was a well-spent weekend for the attendees.

Seriously, how many company invites you over the weekend to test drive their vehicle on a deserving stretch of road, and rather than rushing you to sign that cheque, gives you the freedom to deeply analyze your purchase decision sitting down to a fantastic lunch holding on to your drinks or soaking yourself by the poolside? Beat that!
