The large infotainment screens (14.8 inch for AWD/13.2 inch for 2WD) and advanced 540-degree camera system both give you a clear view of your surroundings, making it easier to navigate challenging spots when you negotiate narrow lanes in Kuala Lumpur or tricky routes when visiting Cameron Highlands for the weekend.

When the humidity and heat starts to climb, the J7's ventilated seats help provide much-needed cooling to keep you cool and dry.

There's also the windshield heads-up display (W-HUD), which provides an optimal viewing angle in line with the driver's sitting position, while the inclusion of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a large panoramic sunroof make for a liberating driving experience.

If you're all about aesthetics, the J7 boasts a sleek and fashionable design, even with its tough features, which makes it ideal for luxurious getaways and commutes to trendy events.

If you're keen to personally experience these features and more, JAECOO will be officially launching the J7 SUV in Malaysia from 20 to 21 July

There will also be immersive and experiential sessions that will showcase the J7's suite of features, including the ability to seamlessly switch between seven different driving modes and provide absolute comfort with its high-tech cabin features.

Additionally, there will be other fun family activities to enjoy during the weekend, and you’ll also stand a chance to win JAECOO goodies while stocks last.
