These brand new Volkswagen Santana subcompact sedans are on their way to take Diamond Rent-a-Car's clients on the verge of their own personal and professional breakthroughs.
The arrival of the Volkswagen Santana last May signaled the German brand’s intent to once again become the Filipino People’s Car as it offers German engineering at an affordable price. This becomes more apparent as VW Philippines recently turned over 11 units of the subcompact sedan to Diamond Rent-a-Car (DRAC).
The country’s pioneering car rental company took delivery of the new subcompact, which it believes will be a premium addition to its growing fleet of vehicles. The rental firm not only services Filipinos looking for quality cars for daily, weekly, or monthly use, but likewise offers these very same vehicles to some 300 of the top coprations.
Since 1977, DRAC has likewise grown to serve up lease-to-own and other services that make car retnal and ownership much easier. The new Volkswagen Santana gives the pool of vehicles something different as it allows fleet accounts and other clients the chance to experience German engineering without breaking the bank.
With 90hp and 132Nm on tap, the 1.4-liter MultiPoint Injection four-cylinder motor makes for efficient yet still decent performance in the city and out on the open road. Mated to a 5-speed manual tranny, the little VW promises excellent fuel economy. Moreover, safety kit like ISFIX child anchors, ABS, and an immobilizer assure peace of mind.
The big plus for companies like DRAC, however, is the 3-year or 100,000km warranty that gives them total confidence in the brand and its products. What’s more, the 10,000km service interval means that their Santana fleet will be out on the road longer. And of course, German engineering is at the core.
With a pricetag of just P686,000, we can expect to see more companies taking delivery of cars like the Volkswagen Santana.
