It's going to be a VW invasion in Langkawi soon

When the Le Tour De Langkawi takes place, Langkawi will be taken over by VW Passats

Volkswagen Malaysia is proud to announce their participation as the official car sponsor at this year’s Le Tour De Langkawi Malaysia. Happening from 24th February 2016 until 2nd March 2016, expect to see a VW and rider invasion on the island on these days as VW will be deploying a total of 190 Passats for riders, safety marshals and police use.

The Volkswagen Passat is packed with safety features like “Rest Assist”, earning the car its five-star Euro NCAP rating. Not only is the Passat filled with safety features, it is also packed with comfort features like 12-way adjustable electric seats and memory function for a comfortable and fatigue-free travel.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Mr Armin Keller, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Malaysia said that “Volkswagen Malaysia is honored to be a part of this year’s Tour De Langkawi 2016 – one of Malaysia’s prestigious sporting event. We are also very pleased that our locally assembled Volkswagen Passat which comes packed with world-class safety features will play a vital role in keeping the event, delegates and officials as well as the riders safe while on the race.”

The Tour de Langkawi is a multiple stage bicycle race held annually since 1996 and features ten stages over the course of ten days. The race is a preliminary round where winners will be determined according to stages like sprinters, team classifications and individual points.

So if you’re heading to Langkawi this weekend, you’re going to encounter a lot of VW Passats at every corner! We hope the statue on the top of the car is just there for decorative purposes.
