Volkswagen Rolls Out Enticing Offers at the 15th MIAS


By Angel S. Rivero

 

Volkswagen Philippines once more lights up its bright and summery themed booth at the 15th Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) at the World Trade Center in Pasay City on 4-7 April 2019. The German marque has loads of discounts, add-ons, and financing deals on offer exclusively at the MIAS, and is ready to extend some of its best offers to the first 50 customers who will purchase from its pool of vehicles during the event.

Among their vehicles on display at the trade show are: a pepper-gray Santana MPI MT; a reflex silver Santana 180 MPI AT S; a deep black Santana 180 MPI AT SE; a red rock Santana GTS; a hunting brown Tiguan 280 TSI DSG SE; a misano red Lamando; and a sunset red Lavida. These cars are models that exemplify German craftsmanship and engineering at more affordable price points.

The well-recognized Volkswagen (VW) Polo has now passed the torch to the practical Santana – which is now VW’s pitch as the ideal sub-compact sedan for young, starting families or professionals. It comes in several variants, and will be sold with an outright Php 35,000 discount for the MT; and an outright Php 45,000 discount for the AT, at the MIAS. Meanwhile, free ceramic coating will be offered as the equivalent perk for buyers of the GTS variant 

The Lavida finds its place in VW’s lineup as the ideal compact sedan for say, corporate managers who value not only comfort and safety for themselves and their families, but also the excitement of spirited driving. And visitors who decide to purchase one at the trade event shall enjoy an outright discount of Php 55,000.

Furthermore, the Lamando is the sedan fitting for the corporate executive who seeks space, elegance, and stability in his ride. Customers who decide to purchase a VW Lamando at the MIAS shall be eligible to avail of free ceramic coating.

Finally, the Tiguan is Volkswagen’s take on a reliable SUV ideal for growing families that is versatile for both city wandering and out-of-town excursions. Visitors who decide to purchase a Tiguan at the event shall be offered a special incentive of Php 25,000 outright cash discount.

These healthy discounts are on top of the special deals that MIAS co-presentor BPI Family Savings Bank is offering, exclusively for Volkswagen customers. Among these additional perks are: Free comprehensive car insurance for the first year, for BPI Family Savings Bank loan amounts of at least Php 500,000 that are applied for a 36-month term (or longer); Free chattel mortgage fee; Free Petron fuel cards; and the lowest available interest rates.

The ownership of a Volkswagen vehicle is presented as a worry-free experience, as the warranty coverage for all these models are comprehensive. VW Philippines also offers 3-year warranty for paint, and a separate 3-year warranty for through-corrosion of the main steel body structure.

Moreover, it is also nice to know that the standard periodic maintenance service interval schedule for these new models is only once a year, or every 10,000 km, whichever comes first. This certainly brings greater convenience to the owner, especially when the PMS interval is compared to the industry-standard of every 5,000 km.
