For the third year running, attractive deals on new and pre-owned models can be had at the 2019 edition of the Volkswagen Fest, to be held between 30th August and 1st September 2019 at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam, Shah Alam. The stunning Arteon four-door fastback will also be present for visitors to get up close.

If you do manage to make your way there this weekend, don’t miss out on the Merdeka Voucher worth RM1,000 for bookings made on the spot and also keep your eyes peeled for ‘Starbuys’ featuring the VW Passat 1.8 TSI Comfortline at RM114,888, along with five-year maintenance and low interest rate promotions on the Tiguan SUV and other Passat models, registered before 31st December 2019.

Like the past two Volkswagen Fests, expect a range of activities to keep visitors of all ages occupied. There’s the Volks Auto area for test drives, car evaluation, hire purchase applications and even free vehicle inspections if you sign up online. Then there’s the classic VW cars display, games, art and hot air balloon ride at Volks Lawn and when hunger strikes, you can make your way to Volks Park and raid the food trucks.
