CFAO Motors is offering Nigerians a rare opportunity to trade-in their pre-owned (used) and tokunbo (imported used) cars for new ones.
The trade-in scheme is non-restrictive to car brands or models, even if it was bought as a tokunbo car, according to the Managing Director of CFAO Motors, Mr. Thomas Pelletier.
He explained that the process is as simple as bringing in your current car for valuation and choosing to pay the balance for a brand new car up-front or through financing.
For example, a brand new Suzuki Dzire, sold at N6 million, can be traded-in with a Toyota Corolla 2013 valued at N1.7 million. The balance of N4.3 million due can either be paid upfront or pay N109,000/monthly (up to 60 months). “So, only 20% equity is needed for the financing.
“The valuation of your car will be done in Lagos at the company’s Akin Adesola, Victoria Island showroom only while financing options are also available in CFAO Motors offices in Abuja and Port Harcourt.”
“To this end, with as little as N3.7m or N85,000 monthly, anyone can own a brand new Suzuki car! The models available in Nigeria cut across compact cars, sedans and Sport Utility Vehicles with the Alto, Dzire, Swift, Baleno, Ciaz, Ertiga, Vitara and Jimny.”
Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational founded in 1909, known for manufacturing a wide range of products which include automobiles, motorcycles and outboard marine engines. With three million cars sold globally every year, the brand is recognised for its lineup of affordable compact cars.
In Nigeria, Suzuki has been quite popular with the mini-buses and compact car taxis which have been plying the roads over the years.
The CFAO Group is a leader in specialised distribution in Africa with 117 years of existence in Nigeria.
The group has built a solid relationship with Suzuki and now distributes the Japanese brand in 26 African countries, offering quality technical expertise and reliable after-sales service.
