All the scrap cars will be destroyed at approved end of life treatment centres which dispose of the vehicles safely. Customers can also avail of zero percent HP finance and 1.9 percent PCP finance on their new Volkswagen.
Other major news for the German brand is the introduction of the popular Caddy van with a TSI petrol engine. It will be available to Irish motorists with a choice of 3 engines, a 1.2-litre 84hp, 1.0-litre 102hp and a 1.4-litre with 125hp, all TSI petrol engines. These models will be advantageous for private users, with lower road tax costs compared to their diesel-powered siblings. The Volkswagen Caddy TSI range commences from a very reasonable €14,995 including vat or €13,995 with the ECO Grant.
