With the ongoing festive season or Hari Raya still at large, Volkswagen Group Malaysia has initiated the Raya Open House for Volkswagen owners and potential customers. The Volkswagen Malaysia Raya Open House will take place from 16 till 17 July at all authorized Volkswagen dealerships nationwide.
Being one of the few auto marques to hold a festive celebration of sorts, the Volkswagen Raya Open house is intended to offer customers loads of amazing deals and promotions, starting with the new sub-compact VW Vento 1.2TSI; the only turbocharged sedan in its class. For customers who are looking for a reliable and suitable new ride, the Volkswagen Vento should be a prime choice on their lists. Moreover, the Vento model now comes with free installments till the end of the year.
Allcarschannel.com recently had an opportunity to spend some time with the Vento 1.2TSI. The Vento 1.2TSI or Highline, available a competitively low price RM93,888, comes with plenty of key features that are usually only found in cars of a higher segment. Headlining features include 4 airbags, 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), ABS, Intelligent Crash Response System (ICRS), cruise control, remote-operated power windows (up and down), one-touch power windows (all), tilt and telescopic multi-function leather steering wheel, cooled glove box compartment, rear split 60:40 folding seats, height adjustable headlamps, “Climatronic” climate control system; the list goes on.
Furthermore. the Vento’s 1.2l TSI turbocharged powerplant, mated to a 7-speed direct shift gearbox, delivers 105PS @ 5,000rpm and 175Nm of fun-inducing twist between 1,500-4,100rpm. This particular engine comes with an “Engine of the Year” award under its belt for 8 years running and manages to achieve a 5.5l per 100km fuel economy rating, making the Vento Highline one of the most powerful yet frugal cars in its class. Part of the reason for this feat is due to the lovely 7-speed DSG that essentially marries the efficiency of a manual gearbox with the convenience of an autobox.
As part of the Volkswagen Raya Open house festivities, Volkswagen Malaysia is also giving away RM2,000 “Duit Raya” pocket money on all Volkswagen models (valid till 31 July), and additional cash rebates on selected models such as the Golf, Cross Touran, Beetle, and CC.
A “Raya Open House” isn’t complete without food, and as part of the celebrations, visitors can also feast on durians and satay, as well as enjoy many fun-filled activities for the entire family.
