Volkswagen Philippines, in partnership with the LICA Auto Group, recently inaugurated the Volkswagen Santa Rosa dealership located along the busy automotive row of the Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road.
“Establishing our 8th Volkswagen dealership in the country, at the economic epicenter of a developing phenomenon that is the Calabarzon area, was a very easy decision to make. And in collaboration with the LICA Auto Group, we are able to establish our presence in a very exciting market. Now, the region’s residents and enterprises will have more access to the German engineering, build quality, and driving experience of Volkswagen automobiles and the accompanying Volkswagen aftersales services and support,” said Volkswagen Philippines’ President Felipe Estrella.
In his message, LICA Auto Group Managing Director Rene Limcaoco said, “Our first Volkswagen dealership takes the LICA Auto Group to a position of dominance in the auto industry in the southern Luzon area. At the same time, Volkswagen Santa Rosa will be more accessible to buyers and owners in the region.“
