March Deliveries a Record for Volkswagen Canada

March Deliveries a Record for Volkswagen Canada 
Jetta and Passat Sales Strong and Tiguan Sports Lower Pricing 
AJAX, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 -- The month of March came
in like a lion and went out in similar fashion for Volkswagen Canada.
The company sold a total of 5,884 new cars and light trucks during
the month, making it their fifteenth consecutive month of record
results. Sales for the company were 16% higher than during the same
period last year (5,064). The year's first quarter has produced sales
of 13,168 for Volkswagen. 
The Jetta continues to carry the load for Volkswagen, with 3,001 sold
last month. Year-to-date sales of the Jetta, which is now priced from
just $14,990, are up by 41%. 
Just as the Jetta has been priced in the heart of its segment, the
Volkswagen Tiguan compact sport utility has recently undergone a
price drop of almost $3,000. Now available from a starting price of
under $25,000, the Tiguan combines the style and performance of the
iconic GTI along with the rugged good looks and carrying capacity of
a sport utility vehicle. 
The new seventh generation Golf, which will be coming to Canada in
2014, was named "World Car of the Year 2013" just last week by a jury
of 66 motoring journalists from 23 countries at the New York
Autoshow.
