Volkswagen Malaysia yesterday presented a couple of models to two Grand Prize winners of the 29th Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian. Volkswagen was the proud sponsor of the Anugerah Bintang Popular awards. The two models were the Volkswagen Passat R-Line Special, the one of its kind in the country, and the latest VW Vento. The prize handover ceremony was held at Volkswagen Sri Hartamas 3S Center.
The Volkswagen Passat R-Line was won by a certain Neelofa, who nabbed the ‘Most Popular Artiste’ award. Meanwhile, Muhammad Zulhilmi Yusof drove home in a brand new VW Vento for winning the ‘Anugerah Bintang Popular’ Vote and Win contest. “I’m very grateful and humbled by all my fans who voted for me and for their endless support. It means the world to me. And I’m also very happy with winning this very special Volkswagen Passat. This is my first Volkswagen and I can’t wait to start driving it around and find out what it is capable of,” said Neelofa.
Neelofa’s new Passat R-Line Special comes with unique R-Line fittings, such as front and rear bumper, pedal caps, a black front grille, black rear spoiler, black Volkswagen and Passat emblems, and exhaust covers.
Zulhilmi Yusof, who captured the new Volkswagen Vento 1.2 TSI Highline, commented, “I was absolutely stunned when I was informed that I had won a Volkswagen Vento. I had read that it’s the most powerful sedan in its class, which is really impressive. I never expected to win – it’s such a blessing and I’m happy that luck was on my side.”
Although the Volkswagen Passat is no longer on the current product list, the VW Vento is available in three variants: Highline, Comfortline and Trendline. The Vento is priced at RM79,888 for the Trendline, RM86,888 for the Comfortline; and RM93,888 for the Highline.
