VOLKSWAGEN Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) today announced the launch of the “Trade-Up” campaign by Das WeltAuto, Volkswagen’s global used car programme.

The campaign offers Volkswagen owners the opportunity to trade-in their current vehicles with extra support on a brand-new Volkswagen.

The Trade-Up campaign is targeted to existing owners of the Touran, Cross Touran, Sharan, Passat CC and Passat B7 who are in the market for a new Volkswagen.

With this campaign, owners will be able to enjoy an additional RM3,000 trade-in support for all models, including the all-new Arteon R-Line, Tiguan Allspace variants (R-Line and Highline) and the Passat Elegance.

VPCM managing director Erik Winter said that the campaign was spurred by the overwhelming response on the new R-Line range.

“From all the positive feedback we received, we understood the need to provide our loyal customers with the possibility of upgrading while remaining in the Volkswagen family.

“With the support of Das WeltAuto, owning a new Volkswagen is even more convenient as all processes are handled and managed at our dealerships. We are confident that this campaign will entice owners of some of our older models to upgrade to our latest products.”
