Maybe 2021 is the year to buy your first Volkswagen. Why not make it the 2021 Volkswagen Santana? The German carmaker recently revealed its updated version of the subcompact sedan which has been alluringly crafted to make Filipinos fall in love with it all over again.

The 2021 Santana combines the features and amenities of previous Santana models with an updated edition of the 180 MPI AT S and the 180 MPI AT SE variants. The 1.5-liter engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and is capable of generating maximum power of 111 PS and 145 Nm of torque. Equipped with BlueMotion technology, it results to frugal fuel consumption that ensures your drives—whether they be those long, out-of-towners or those quick in-city trips—will not only give you and your family driving and riding comfort, but will also guarantee your financial peace of mind.

It has one of the longest wheelbases in its class for a stable ride and enhanced comfort. Automatic headlights with Leaving Home and Coming Home function, front fog lamps, intermittent control wipers with rain sensor, and a sunroof are also available for the 2021 Santana 180 MPI AT SE.

The renewed interiors of the 2021 Santana will make you both excited and relaxed. The essential power features are included in the S variant, while additional specs are available for the SE. These include: leather and fabric seat material, a front center armrest with height adjustment, front and rear door pockets with bottle holder, front and rear reading lights, and a multifunction steering wheel with cruise control. Not to mention the SE’s touchscreen infotainment system with radio, USB, Bluetooth, and 6 speakers. An optional 7” infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is also available as a dealer option.

Apart from having dual front airbags, ESP, ABS and ASR standard in the 2021 Santana 180 MPI AT S, additional features are also equipped in the SE variant including driver and front passenger side airbags and rear parking distance control. Combine these safety features with a comprehensive 3-year or 100,000 km-warranty coverage (whichever comes first), yearly preventive maintenance service or every 10,000 kilometers (whichever comes first) and 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance, the 2021 Santana provides compelling reasons for Filipinos to experience the motoring lifestyle that only Volkswagen can offer.
