Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has just introduced the special edition ALLSTAR range, consisting of specially customized Polo, Vento and Jetta models for discerning customers who wish to stand out from the crowd.

The ALLSTAR range kicks-off with the Polo ALLSTAR, which will be launched this weekend, and will subsequently be followed by the Vento ALLSTAR later this month, and the Jetta ALLSTAR in June.

According to the Managing Director of VPCM, Erik Winter, the launch of the ALLSTAR range is in line with VPCM’s mission to provide Malaysians with value-added benefits in a Volkswagen. “The new ALLSTAR range is a special edition line-up of our core models, which have been refreshed with cosmetic upgrades for an attention-grabbing, sportier look. The ALLSTAR range is also the first of a series of special edition initiatives that we plan to roll out this year.”

The Polo ALLSTAR will make its first public appearance at the Carlist-MAA Drive event happening on 13 – 14 May at Setia City Convention Center. There will also be a nationwide Volkswagen showroom event on 14 May, where members of the public can visit their nearest authorized dealer to get up close with the Polo ALLSTAR.

At a glance, the Polo ALLSTAR gets a lot sportier with a more proportioned silhouette. The sub compact exudes confidence, thanks to the carefully-oriented curves.

Inside, the ALLSTAR edition comes with factory fitted Bluetooth solutions that provide safe, hands-free communications while driving. The 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system is also equipped with MirrorLink, Radio ‘RCD 330G’, USB and iPod interface, SD card slot and AUX-In. For a limited time, the Polo ALLSTAR comes added accessories worth up to RM6,000 such as a rear spoiler, ALLSTAR’ leather seats, ALLSTAR’ side scuff plates, Aluminum sport pedals and ALLSTAR’ floor mats

The Polo ALLSTAR is priced at RM72,888 as an introductory offer, from its actual retail price of RM79,888 (minus insurance). Available in Carbon Steel Grey, Reflex Silver, Candy White and Flash Red.

The Polo ALLSTAR retains the same performance as its Polo brother, with Volkswagen’s 1.6MPI 105PS petrol injection 16-Valve Multi Point Injection (MPI) engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic. The car is able to achieve a maximum torque of 153Nm available at a low 3800rpm, and fuel consumption at 6.3 liters per 100km.
