From the front, the design of the All New Voxy looks more edgy which radiates from the New Resilient Front Bumper & Intriguing Grille Design, a unique bumper and grille design surrounded by a chrome frame and New Bold Headlamp Design that blends seamlessly with the top of the grille.

From the side, the All New Voxy looks even more elegant thanks to the New Stunning 17-inch Disc Wheel which resembles an airplane turbine design and is wrapped in a combination of chrome and gray.

Then the Seamless Steering Switch with New TSS button makes it easier for the driver to operate several features on the All New Voxy without having to remove the steering wheel.

Interestingly, the Power Back Door feature on the All New Voxy can adjust its opening in a narrow area, and this is the first feature in the world that Toyota has specially presented in the All New Voxy.

The entertainment feature uses a 9-inch screen that is connected to the Marvelous 11.6-inch Roof Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) so that both passengers in front and behind can enjoy traveling with the All New Voxy. This screen replaces the panoramic sunroof in the previous model which was excellent.

This is the first time that TSS 3.0 is present in Indonesia with four safety features, namely Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), and Automatic High Beam (AHB).

How is it different from the previous TSS? TSS 3.0 is claimed to have a wider forward detection distance as well as up, down and left and right sides. Front detection can detect moving objects even at closer distances. Regarding the LTA feature, there is an improvement with detection technology using 3D Recognition so that more objects are detected, such as cars being parked, road dividers and road markings.

The new PCS also detects pedestrians and cyclists crossing its path from the opposite direction. This feature also detects motorcyclists passing at intersections, which is Toyota's first feature.

The DRSCC feature is also improved by setting the distance to four levels. This allows the Voxy MPV to maintain a longer distance from the vehicle in front. There's also a speed setting that can detect a second vehicle farther in front so it can adjust more quickly and accurately.

Porsche Indonesia's New Boss, Michael Vetter: From Business To Like Jackie Chan

 Michael Vetter has officially become Managing Director at Eurokars Artha Utama, which oversees the German brand, Porsche.

 In fact, this 53-year-old man has been effectively working in Indonesia since January 2022. Having a lot of experience and extensive knowledge at all levels of distribution, he is ready to oversee all business operations and strengthen the Porsche brand in the Indonesian market.

His name can be said to be familiar in the automotive world, especially Porsche. Vetter has long experience with car brands from Germany. His achievements also continue to grow and much of his career has been spent developing business in the Asia Pacific region.

Before serving as Managing Director at Eurokars, it turned out that being able to work in a car company and owning a vehicle, especially a Porsche, was one of his dreams since childhood. He told this during the Virtual Media Gathering Exclusive on Thursday (17/1).

“If I may tell you a little, the Porsche has been my dream car since I was little. I am the son of parents who live simply. One day I dreamed of working and driving a Porsche. For the sake of realizing that dream, I tried and studied diligently. Finally that dream came true after graduating from university and joining Porsche. From there I got a 911 car. Even though it is not a personal car, I am very happy and at least I can sit in the seat of my dream car, “he explained.

Just like employees in general. His career started from the bottom and has a long history. Starting from graduating from college and then getting a job offer from Porsche AG in Germany. Holding a Master of Business Administration degree, he was immediately given responsibility for retail marketing for Porsche dealers. The man who graduated from the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen also manages about 40 dealers in Germany.

After working in a coveted company, Vetter then had another dream, namely to work abroad. And it turns out that the marketing field that he is engaged in is able to take him across the European continent to the Asia Pacific region.

At that time my boss asked, are you interested in working in an area other than here? Yes I answered. My efforts have paid off again. And actually Asia is not part of the dream, because I've never been there. But because I like challenges, I immediately accepted the offer and became Area Manager Sales & Marketing for Asia Pacific Porsche AG on January 1, 2000,” he admits.

According to him, it was a very extraordinary day and he can never forget. His first trip to Asia started from Singapore, then Korea and then Taiwan. In 2001 Porsche opened a regional office in Singapore and he was part of the startup team there by becoming Regional Manager Sales & Business Development for Porsche Asia Pacific Pte Ltd. His job is to maintain the quality of marketing in 13 countries including Indonesia.

“Because I have a long history with reports in the Asian region, I ended up staying in Singapore until 2005. Actually I was part of the team that at that time chose importers for Indonesia. So from the start, we have been involved with the Indonesian market in this business,” he said.

But another group picked him up in 2005 and was appointed President of Stuttgart Sports Cars Ltd. - Korean Porsche Importer. There he helped grow the business and started from a very small team. It consists of 20 people who can only sell about 10 cars per month. From one showroom to a small workshop, we developed a joint master plan and set a vision to sell 1,000 units five years later. And no one really believed it then.

“Actually we are almost there, but because of the financial crisis in 2008-2009, I think we have been back for about a year. But I remember in 2009 when the Panamera was launched we sold about 700 units. So we have passed the financial crisis. During eight years leading Stuttgart Sports Cars Ltd as an Exclusive Independent Porsche Importer and Distributor in South Korea, sales increased from 130 units in 2005 to 2,100 units in 2013. From 1 dealer to 7 dealers, and from 23 to 300 employees.

"Effort never betrays results" is what happened to a man who likes cycling. In January 2014 he was promoted to President & CEO Stuttgart Sports Cars Ltd as Porsche Retail Group Korea. From there he was entrusted to manage the largest authorized Porsche Dealer group in South Korea with 6 Exclusive Porsche Centers located in Seoul (2), Busan, Incheon and Bundang (2).

Nearly 10 years of experience setting up a national company, he was finally awarded as Chief Executive Officer at Precision Cars (Cambodia) Limited in March 2015. His main business returned to the way it was when he was first in Korea, becoming an Exclusive Porsche Importer & Distributor.

Due to his expertise in sales, networking and product development, in 2018 the group again asked him to help grow AMG's business in China. There he was in charge of 37 AMG dealers. Plus two independent AMG dealerships opened under his supervision at that time.

Then in 2019 the German-born man decided it was time to spend time with his family. Finally he returned home and lived again in Berlin. "I moved back to Berlin only about three weeks before the coronavirus pandemic was announced," he said.

“Actually, I was lucky enough to be in Berlin with my family. But apparently that's not the case in business terms. It was a very difficult time to pass and it had a global impact, so the effects of the pandemic are still being felt today.”

Actually during his 2 or two years in Germany, he kept in touch with friends in Asia. Finally he was offered the opportunity to join as Managing Director at Eurokars. Michael Vetter is responsible for overseeing all business operations and strengthening the Porsche brand in the Indonesian market.

“I am very happy and honored to be here. I miss being in Southeast Asia. I was also happy when Eurokars proposed to me to join and help him grow his business here.”

Vetter said that leading the Porsche business in Indonesia even during the pandemic was a dream come true. He believes that Indonesia has a huge market potential for Porsche. "Our focus is clear, namely to expand our sales and service network nationally and become the number one importer and dealer of luxury sports cars in Indonesia," he said.

As is well known, Porsche Indonesia last year introduced the Porsche Taycan in February 2021 and the Taycan Cross Turismo in October 2021. The two electric vehicles from Porsche have indeed become a mainstay for Porsche in the electrification era as well as adding to the complete line of Porsche products in Indonesia.

Michael Vetter Just Like Jackie Chan


From a fairly long career, there is an interesting side that he got while in South Korea. Michael Vetter, who at that time served as CEO of Stuttgart Sports Cars, the official Porsche dealer in Korea, was named an honorary citizen of Seoul.

Since joining Stuttgart Sports Cars in 2005, Vetter has gained recognition for contributing greatly to the growth of the German sports car brand and the nation's driving culture as a whole.

 Seoul's honorary citizens are a means of the Seoul metropolitan government to give appreciation to foreigners who have contributed to the city's development. The award is given annually to 10 foreign nationals who have lived in South Korea for three years.

Apart from being a means to build friendly partnerships with foreign countries, it is also given to heads of state and diplomatic envoys who travel to Korea. The program has granted citizenship by selecting beneficiaries every year since 1958.

His status is the same as that obtained by action actor from Hong Kong, Jackie Chan (1999). Likewise with Guus Hiddink, the coach of the Korean national football team (national team) until he became a semi-finalist for the 2002 World Cup. Then there is Christopher Hill, the former US Ambassador to Korea (2005).

 

Don't Panic, Here's a Guide to Overcoming The Answer Back System Yamaha Does Not Make a Sound

 The latest motorcycles are equipped with advanced safety features. One of them is the keyless feature, a motor key system without a key. 

On two wheels, this device is also equipped with an Answer Back System whose function makes it easier for owners to find motorcycles when in the parking lot.

Especially in Yamaha products, Answer Back System there are 2 settings, namely 'beep' with sound and blink of sein lights, and 'silence' without sound (only sein lights). Then, what if the remote is pressed Answer Back System actually does not make a sound?

Don't Panic, Here's a Guide to Overcoming The Answer Back System Yamaha Does Not Make a Sound

Because of ignorance some owners immediately punish if the remote or motor is damaged. From now on do not panic let alone directly come to the workshop, you can arrange it independently at home.

According to Senior Technical Advisor of PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM), Slamet Kasianom, there is no sound when the remote is pressed just because the Answer Back System setting changes.

"Actually, it is not broken, but the Answer Back System settings have changed. Simply squeezed on the remote or for keyless presses on the contact button near the deck," Slamet said, not long ago.

Yamaha's Answer Back System Set Guide

To make it easier, we try to help summarize from Slamet's explanation as below.

  • First approach your remote key with a motorcycle at least 60 centimeters away.
  • Then, if the motorcycle is in a handlebar locked position, move it to a free position (unlocked and the instrument panel is not on).
  • Then press the contact return button for about 2 seconds until it says 'click'.
  • If you have pressed the lock lock again for a while until the motorcycle reads 'beep' once.
  • Finally, check if the 'beep' sound is active. How to press the button on the remote, if the sound of 'beep' is heard followed by the blink of the lamp sein means the Answer Back System setting is already in a sounding position.

Tips for Caring for Keyless to Stay

Behind the sophistication and practicality of keyless keys on the motor there are several things that must be considered. The main thing is the condition of the battery in the remote and how to store components so that they are not damaged quickly let alone lost.

If lost, the process of making keyless requires time and cost is not small. Therefore, the most correct way is to know the mechanism of use and keyless maintenance in the motor.

Yamaha Indonesia tries to provide 8 tips on caring for keyless on the bike. Let's go ahead and do it from now on.

  • Avoid pressing the knob forcefully if the smart key is not near the motor. Make sure to operate the knob instead of the ignition normally preventing mechanical damage to the knob. In addition, considering the motor can only turn on if there is a remote, then make sure the remote is always near the motor when pressing the knob.
  • Make sure the remote doesn't fall off and is always dry. Remote as a signaler, even though it is equipped with an anti-water seal, make sure the remote is always dry from the water before it is turned on to prevent damage due to short circuits.
  • Avoid electromagnetic radiation. Avoid the habit of placing credits around objects with high electromagnetic radiation, such as mobile phones, televisions, signal transmitters, and the like. This has the potential to disrupt the signal on the remote SKS.
  • Always make sure you have pressed the off button on the remote after turning off the motorcycle. If the remote is not off or still on after the motor dies, the signal from the remote will continue to radiate thus draining the remote battery.
  • Always check the remote battery. If the radius of the remote with the motorcycle is too short when used then it is advisable to immediately replace the battery on the remote.
  • Make sure to always remember or save the pin number of the smart key. This makes it easier for consumers to inform the dealer in case of a key loss.
  • Avoid storing remotes in the trunk of the motor or racks on the motor. This is so as not to be left behind or lost. If you lose the key, the consumer will have to replace the smart unit, SGCU, and remote control.
  • Always check the cleanliness of sockets and cable lines on the smart unit as a signal receiver to avoid shorting. Motorcycle maintenance with the Smart Key System (SKS) feature is quite easy, because it starts from the discipline of the rider himself.

Like any rendering image ever circulated.

Look at the pattern of lights like there is no change. Most likely there is a robbery of the grille design. Referring to tucson, the large grille design is made like one area alongside an LED headlamp. From the same side, the new camouflage cloth closes the stern area again. It is believed to have been redesigned from the shape of the lamp or bumper.

The paparazzi didn't get any photos of the interior. Speculation of changes can be researched from afar through clear window glass. Look at the new dashboard design and steering wheel circumference. It is likely that New Palisade also adopted a new digital instrument panel.

Palisade has 3 engine options for different markets. In its home country there is a choice of 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine powered by 277 PS and 335 Nm of torque. Then there is also a larger capacity, 3.8-liter producing 295 PS and maximum torque of 355. Plus the 2.2-liter CRDi turbodiesel engine powered by 200 PS and 441 Nm as available in Indonesia.
