VOLKSWAGEN Passenger Cars Malaysia Sdn Bhd (VPCM), one of the top European carmakers in the country, has big plans for the Malaysian market.
Over the last six weeks, the company has unveiled two ALLSTAR models, namely the Volkswagen Polo ALLSTAR and the Volkswagen Vento ALLSTAR. The company also plans to launch a Volkswagen Jetta ALLSTAR soon.
“The ALLSTAR range is a special edition lineup of our core models that have been refreshed 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,” said managing director Erik Winter at the launch of the ALLSTAR range.
The Volkswagen Polo ALLSTAR model comes with RM6,000 worth of exclusive accessories, including the leather seats, aluminium pedals, rear spoiler, black door strips, “ALLSTAR” scuff plates, emblems and carpet mats.
It retains the same 16-valve multi point injection petrol engine hooked on a six-speed automatic transmission with tiptronic function. It is capable of churning out 104hp and a maximum torque of 153Nm at 3,800rpm, with a fuel consumption of 6.3 litres per 100km.
The Volkswagen Polo ALLSTAR retails at RM72,888. It is available in four colours - Carbon Steel Grey, Reflex Silver, Candy White and Flash Red.
The Volkswagen Vento ALLSTAR is the second ALLSTAR special-edition range introduced by VPCM. It comes with RM7,000 worth of exclusive accessories, including leather seats, aluminium sports pedal, rear spoiler, black door strips, trunk garnish, “ALLSTAR” scuff plates, emblems and carpet mats.
It comes with the 1.6-litre multi-point injection petrol engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with tiptronic function. The Vento ALLSTAR is able to produce 104hp and a maximum torque of 153Nm with a fuel consumption of 6.5 litres per 100km.
As an added bonus, the Vento ALLSTAR also comes with the new MY VW Drive App, which provides added convenience at the driver’s fingertips.
With numerous functions like the driving style and fuel consumption tracking, the app enhances the drive with smart capabilities that keeps the driver safe and in control. It also provides insights on the car condition and performance.
In the case of an emergency, users can easily obtain immediate help from Mondial Roadside Assistance.
The Volkswagen Vento ALLSTAR is priced at RM78,888 with a choice of two colours — Reflex Silver and Candy White.
Currently, there are two models being offered with this stunning and sporty special-edition range.
There were rumours that the Volkswagen Jetta ALLSTAR would be available this month.
