The May 31, 2024 contract signing that renewed the successful partnership between JETOUR Auto Philippines Inc (JAPI) and Midori Clark Hotel & Casino was made even more momentous with the presence of the country’s most influential motoring media entities who experienced riding and driving one of the most technologically endowed and uniquely designed and engineered 4-wheel-drive SUVs in the market today, the JETOUR T2.

This special 2-in-1 event was planned and executed precisely to showcase the innovation and performance of both JAPI as the exclusive national distributor of the world-renowned JETOUR brand, and its first 4WD SUV. And what better way to highlight these than with 34 communication professionals representing 20 of the most influential media organizations on hand to witness a partnership intensify, and to get that exclusive hands-on experience of the T2 4WD SUV.

In just a little over a year in operation, JAPI has become a substantial player in the industry—introducing 7 models, establishing 22 dealerships, and achieving 1,581 units sold as of to date.

With the participants on board eleven 4WD JETOUR T2 SUVs trooping into the Midori Clark Hotel & Casino grounds, JAPI’s first JETOUR T2 ride-and-drive with the motoring media since its launch last April 2024.

A 4WD SUV like no other

The imposing T2 that members of the motoring media boarded that Friday morning at JETOUR Auto Edsa Centris in Quezon City stood out from a sea of other vehicles during that morning rush northwards to the Clark Freeport Zone, namely for the following 5 reasons:

1. Design that’s cutting-edge. The JETOUR T2 seamlessly combines rugged and luxurious, comfort and aesthetics in one bold stroke. The assertive exterior is complemented by carefully crafted interiors that feature premium materials and ergonomic leather seats for optimal comfort and luxury. From its distinctive silhouette to attention-grabbing details, the T2 sets new standards in automotive design.

2. An exhilarating performance. You can expect no less than a breathtaking ride-and-drive experience from the JETOUR T2, owing to its powerful 2.0 turbo petrol engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission capable of delivering massive 251 horsepower and 390Nm of torque exemplifying immediate responsiveness. All-around, all-terrain consistency is assured with the Smart XWD Four-Wheel Drive with 7-drive modes.

Whether in city streets, on highways, or on country roads, the JETOUR T2 is firmly grounded and unstoppably grinding without compromising fuel efficiency.

3. Advanced safety features. While the JETOUR T2 is a monster of a performer, it’s also a determined protector, keeping its driver and occupants safe at all times. It employs state-of-the-art safety technologies in its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking. These features enhance your confidence and peace of mind behind the wheel, whether you’re just navigating in the city or seeking your next adrenaline fix in the countryside with your family.

4. Smart Connectivity. In the JETOUR T2, you’re never out of touch with the people and things that keep you in tune with, and attuned to, the times. The T2’s innovative infotainment system highlighted by the large 15.6-inch touchscreen display with smartphone integration and a wireless charger lets you stay connected and entertained. Voice-activated controls and active noise reduction adds convenience and quality to the ride. The Sony Sound System also sets the bar high for in-car audio excellence. Connectivity is, indeed, at the tip of your fingers and at your beck and call in the T2.

5. Ready for adventure 24/7. Suffice to say that the JETOUR T2 is designed and equipped for adventure anytime you crave for it. The JETOUR T2 Terrain variant comes equipped with practical and adventurous extras, which includes a side-mounted gear carrier for storing outdoor equipment. Plus, the deployable side ladder allows you to load and unload roof cargo. These innovative features are most sought after by outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers, as they enhance the versatility and functionality of the T2 for nearly all types of adventure journeys.

What they say about the T2

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say. So, here’s what some of the 34 participants had to say about the T2 after the 100 kilometer journey from Quezon City to Clark Freeport Zone:

“The JETOUR T2 appears to be a very rugged and capable vehicle. Typically, rugged vehicles sacrifice comfort, but I’m excited to see how comfortable the T2 is to drive on the highway. JETOUR Auto Philippines has designed a vehicle that’s built to tackle any terrain while also providing a comfortable ride on the highway and I’m really looking forward to experiencing that,” quoted by a publication.

“The JETOUR T2 is, for me, one of the most exciting vehicles in the Philippine market today, and I’m thrilled to drive it for the first time here on Open Roads. I’ve had a brief experience driving it around the parking lot at the Manila International Auto Show, and it showed a lot of promise. Now, I’ll have the chance to take it on the highway and open roads,” quoted by another publication.

Many more in the pipeline

“As we can glean from the immediate reactions and feedback of our media friends in their social media posts about their ride-and-drive experience, I can say that we’ve made some new fans of the T2. Many of them are seasoned veterans of the motoring media who have driven a lot of SUVs. The fact that they’re impressed about the T2 already says a lot about the build quality, design, engineering, and ride characteristics of our vehicle,” said Miguelito Jose, JAPI Managing Director.

“There are many more exciting vehicles from JETOUR in the pipeline for the Philippine market. The T2, as well as the rest of our current vehicle lineup, is paving the way for the JETOUR brand to eventually become a household name, and to be a brand best known for enabling Filipinos to drive the future of mobility today,” Mr. Jose added.
