Jaguar Land Rover dealer SISMA Auto Sdn Bhd’s opened its new Glenmarie 3S centre on 17 June 2015, marking its second major new branch in less than a year. This comes hot on the heels of the opening of the first SISMA Auto Kuala Lumpur, which is located at Menara Worldwide, Jalan Bukit Bintang, back in October 2014.

SISMA Auto is an authorised dealer and service provider for Jaguar and Land Rover in Malaysia, and is the automotive arm of the SISMA Group of Companies. The company was founded by the late Dato’ Syed Ibrahim Syed Mohamed and his brother, Syed Hussain Syed Mohamed, the current Chairman.

SISMA Auto began operating in 1994 as the sole importer, distributor and exclusive accredited aftersales service provider for Jaguar cars in Malaysia. A joint venture between SISMA Auto and Sime Darby Motors later created Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, which is the exclusive importer for Jaguar and Land Rover in Malaysia. The joint venture was formed via SISMA Auto’s acquisition of a 40% share in Sime Darby Motors’ Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, which was then renamed Jaguar Land Rover (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.

This expansion is to support incoming new models that are expected to grow Jaguar Land Rover’s customer base in Malaysia, and will include the new Land Rover Discovery Sport; and the new XF sport sedan, all-new XE compact executive sedan and F-Pace, the first-ever performance crossover from Jaguar. The new models combine design, innovation, performance, practicality and capability to help broaden the appeal and reach of the two brands which are generally regarded in Malaysia as more niche or enthusiasts brands.

SISMA Auto Managing Director Syed Khalil Syed Ibrahim pledged that the company would retain its signature family-owned business approach and emphasis on personalised service even as it embarked on a network expansion.

“This approach has served us well for the past two decades as SISMA Auto became synonymous with the Jaguar brand.  Nothing will change despite our new expanded role as a dual-brand Jaguar Land Rover dealer and the fact that we are now growing our network. We will ensure that our customers are able to focus on enjoying the ownership experience while leaving the rest to us,” he said.

He cited the complimentary pick-up and drop-off service from customers’ residences or offices as one of the highlights of the premium ownership experience from SISMA Auto.

“The city-centre location of our Menara Worldwide showroom also makes it an extremely convenient and accessible service drop-off point for our customers,” he added.
