THIS JULY, motorists and car enthusiasts residing in Pampanga now have a better shot at leveling their drive up for the second half of 2019, as Volkswagen Philippines holds mall tours in this strategic location.

The mall tour graces the Main Atrium of SM City Pampanga in San Fernando City from July 20 to 26. The Volkswagen Santana MT subcompact sedans and the Lavida compact sedan will be displayed in SM City Pampanga.

After a particularly hot and prolonged summer, visitors to the mall tour would certainly want to look cool and comfortable in these vehicles that have been designed, engineered, and crafted with the world-renowned German brand of automobile precision and time-tested heritage that is uniquely Volkswagen. Each Volkswagen vehicle on display also takes its intended owner and driver into a premium driving motoring lifestyle that truly defines “What Makes Volkswagen, A Volkswagen;” Volkswagen’s timeless design, legendary safety, and German engineering coming together seamlessly to elevate the overall driving experience of the hardworking, upwardly mobile Filipino.

The Santana can be considered your first best car, offering premium engineering, design, styling, safety, power and fuel efficiency to give the first-time brand new car buyer the best possible motoring lifestyle experience in his or her very first Volkswagen. As the heritage of the iconic Polo has now been passed to the Santana, the Santana becomes the ideal subcompact sedan for young families and young professionals on their way to the top.

The Santana MPI MT is powered by a 1.4-liter Multi-Point Injection (MPI) 4-cylinder petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, with maximum power output of 90ps at 5,500rpm and maximum torque of 132Nm at 3,800rpm.

For ride comfort and stability, the Santana variants feature electronic power steering, front McPherson Independent Suspension, and rear composite torsion beam semi-independent suspension. Safety highlights include standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), front dual air bags, immobilizer and ISOFIX anchorage points.

The Santana MPI MT price starts at a very affordable P686,000.

Dealer option for Santana is the Blaupunkt Infotainment system that includes a 7-inch touchscreen audio system with Android OS, CD, DVD, USB, Bluetooth, and Mirror-link.

The Lavida offers power and comfort in one functional sedan, and is ideal for corporate managers who value the safety and comfort of every member of their families, yet still seek that power and passion in their drive both behind the wheel and their office desks. Taking its cue from the best-selling Jetta, the Lavida also fulfills its place as that 2nd car in the garage, ready to complement the roles of other Volkswagen vehicles as the need arises.

The Lavida 230 TSI DSG SE is equipped with a 1.4-liter, 4-cylinder Turbo Fuel-Injected petrol engine with BlueMotion Technology mated to a 7-speed Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission, capable of 130ps of power at 5,000 rpm and 225Nm of torque at 1,400 to 3,500 rpm. The interior features and comfort amenities include leather seat material, cruise control, Climatronic air-conditioning, Push Start, and sunroof. Safety highlights include the ESP, Electronic Differential Lock, Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), hill hold control, and front and rear PDC.

The Lavida’s price starts at P1.171 million.

The warranty coverage for all models on display is comprehensive. Aside from the 3 years or 100,000km general warranty, whichever comes first, Volkswagen Philippines also offers a 3-year warranty for paint and another 3-year warranty for through-corrosion of the main steel body structure. All models come with 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERA). ERA services include the following: towing services, removal of vehicle/vehicle recovery, fuel delivery, battery jump-start, lock-out services and flat tire service.

The periodic maintenance service (PMS) interval schedule for these new models is also structured for its owners’ convenience. The PMS interval is once a year, or every 10,000 km, whichever comes first. This is more convenient and more cost-efficient compared to the industry-standard 5,000-km PMS interval.

Volkswagen’s July mall tours are guaranteed to be a fun-filled affair for every member of the family. Volkswagen mascot, Wolfi, will hand out balloons from 2 p.m. onwards during the weekends. Volkswagen items will also be given away to prospective buyers.
