VW goes on attack with special offers

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has pre-empted growing competition from the likes of Renault and Vauxhall with a series of special offers on its Transporter and LT35 ranges.

The Transporter is available with a choice of free servicing, one of five accessory packs or 0% or low rate finance until the end of the year.

The first option will give customers free regular servicing for the first two years (up to 50,000 miles) of the vehicle's life. The second offers a choice of one of five accessory packs - electric, protection, style, security or carrying - supplied and fitted free of charge. Both choices represent a saving of around £500 for the customer.

The final option is 0% finance for two years on a 40% deposit, or low rate finance for two or three years with a smaller initial payment.

For the larger LT35s, VW is offering a free engine upgrade and anti-lock brakes. For the price of an LT35 with the 75bhp SDI diesel engine, Volkswagen will supply a 90bhp TDI, plus ABS for no extra charge.

Upgrades are available throughout the range - 90bhp is offered with 109bhp, and 109bhp is upgraded to the range-topping 130bhp at no additional cost to customers.

All models and configurations - chassis cab, double cab, dropside, tipper or panel van - also benefit from ABS as standard.

VW claims the deal represents a saving of around £1,500 and is another part of its pledge to deliver more value to the customer.

The offer comes in addition to the three-year, 100,000-mile warranty and three years' free servicing, which are already standard on all LT35s.
