Volkswagen Announces Availability of the Santana AT, Santana GTS, and Lamando this November

 

Great things are coming from Volswagen and they come in 3s!

After making available its first 3 groundbreaking new models last May – the Santana 1.4 MPI Manual Transmission Trendline, the Lavida 230 TSI DSG Comfortline, and the Tiguan 280 TSI DSG Comfortline , Volkswagen Philippines has announced that 3 more will be available by November.

These are the following:

  1. The mid and high variants of the Santana model, 1.5 MPI automatic transmission Trendline and Comfortline;
  2. Santana GTS 1.5 MPI AT Comfortline; and,
  3. the Lamando 280 TSI DSG Comfortline and Highline.

 

The Santana 1.5 MPI AT Trendline and Comfortline and the Santana GTS 1.5 MPI AT Comfortline offer more power with its 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder, in-line MPI gasoline engine with BlueMotion Technology generating maximum power output of 110 Ps at 6,000rpm and maximum torque of 150 Nm at 4,000rpm.

Available exterior colors for the Santana 1.5 MPI AT Trendline and Comfortline are Deep Black, Polar White, and Reflex Silver with introductory prices of  P898,000 (Trendline) and P962,000 (Comfortline) while available exterior colors for the Santana GTS 1.5 MPI AT Comfortline are Polar White, Toffee Brown, and Red Rock Metallic with introductory price of P998,000.

 

The Lamando 280 TSI DSG Comfortline and Highline variants, on the other hand, are both powered by the 1.4-liter, 4-cylinder, in-line TSI gasoline engine with BlueMotion Technology that generates maximum power of 150 Ps at 5,000rpm and maximum torque of 250 Nm at 1,750 to 3,000rpm. Available exterior colors are Mangangrey, Polar White, Coriandolo (Comfortline only), Dark Bronze (Comfortline only), and Misano Red (Highline only) with introductory price of P1.569 million for the Comfortline while the Highline variant goes for P1.703 million.

And just like the first three models launched in May, these three new ones will have comprehensive warranty coverages. Aside from the three years or 100,000-km 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.

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 kms, whichever comes first. This is more convenient and more cost-efficient compared to the industry-standard 5,000-km PMS interval.

The special introductory prices of the Santana AT, the Santana GTS and the Lamando are all in line with the celebration of 5th anniversary of Volkswagen Philippines as a member of the Ayala Group of companies this September. And as Volkswagen Philippines rolls onto its 5th year of providing German-engineered and designed premium motoring lifestyle experience that is now within reach of more hardworking Filipinos, you can head on to any Volkswagen dealership and enter a world of driving possibilities. Whether you buy the three current models now, or reserve your units for November, you know: With Volkswagen, Your Drive Just Got Better.
