Now in its fifth year, Cars@Expo, organised by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) and motoring portal sgCarMart, will be held today and tomorrow between 10am and 8pm.

The last Cars@Expo, held in April, attracted more than 100,000 visitors and raked in more than $160 million in sales.
"Over the years, Cars@Expo has proven that it is the car show of the year to go to, and it is not any different this time around," said Mr Koh Weng Wai, head of marketing communications at SPH.
He added that the company is "more than pleased" to provide a platform for buyers, distributors and dealers to connect and engage.
"For this upcoming show, we have sgCarMart as our co-organiser and, with the enthusiastic support of more than 40 exhibitors offering the best deals on cars and car accessories, I'm sure visitors will not be disappointed," he said.
