Things are certainly picking up in the car industry as increasing activity is evident. New models that may have been delayed are now appearing in showrooms to revitalise interest among car-buyers.
The latest is from Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) which has just launched the UNITED range. Consisting of the Passat and Tiguan, the limited edition range celebrates ‘the strength of unity, a trait deeply embedded in the Volkswagen brand’.
Volkswagen Original Accessories added
Two new unique items from Volkswagen Original Accessories are introduced with the UNITED models: dynamic wheel hub caps with a self-levelling logo that stays upright while the car is in motion, and LED door lights that project the Volkswagen logo when the front doors are opened (Passat only).
The Passat UNITED is priced at RM193,856 and comes with accessories worth a total of RM12,000. Additional accessories include aluminium sports pedals and side scuff plates, new 19-inch Verona alloy wheels, VW Tint and the UNITED emblem.
Priced at RM166,108, The Tiguan UNITED has a front sports bumper, rear spoiler, chrome boot garnish, load lip protector, chrome exhaust tip, VW tint and the UNITED emblem, all worth RM4,000.
VPCM Managing Director Erik Winter explained that the UNITED range is introduced as a symbol of solidarity rooted within the brand. “While there is a connection between our UNITED range and Volkswagen’s involvement in football, the significance of the name and what it represents could not be more relevant today, with the challenges we are facing. Additionally, a core principle of the Volkswagen brand is #wenotme, which emphasises on unity and togetherness,” he said.
With the sales tax exemption recently announced by the government, it’s obviously the best time to buy a Volkswagen, especially as these two are locally assembled models which are given 100% exemption of the tax.
Save RM1,000 this weekend
This weekend, authorised Volkswagen dealerships are hosting a virtual Raya Open House on their respective social media channels. They are offering an additional RM1,000 rebate on any Volkswagen models booked during the weekend online.
An additional deal for the Tiguan offers the first 6 months of H-P instalments covered by Volkswagen if the SUV is registered by June 30, 2020. The Passat also comes with free insurance coverage for the first year. There is also the free home delivery service for customers within a 20-km radius of the dealership.
