Showroom Feature – Volkswagen Singapore
In our first installment of 9tro's Showroom Feature stories we take a look at the Volkswagen Singapore dealership located along Alexandra Road, Singapore. Now you might ask what's the purpose of this?
Well, in our continued efforts to bring you, our readers, an even more immersive automotive experience, we felt that it would be beneficial to take you on a tour of car dealerships here in Singapore, just to cue you in on what are the cars on show that you can buy, what other cool stuff you can find in the various showrooms without having to physically go there.
Back to Volkswagen's showroom though, did you know that prior to 2010, the car maker shared half of its current premises with Renault's dealer; from the Body and Paint section all the way to the side that faces Leng Kee, as such customers could not drive through from Alexandra to Leng Kee and had to make a huge detour.
However in 2010, Renault relocated and Volkswagen took over the entire building,
expanding their facilities to accommodate more Aftersales support, as well as added
three more delivery bays for customers to collect their new cars. Stepping even
further back in time, the building which houses Volkswagen Singapore now used to be
a Kao toiletries warehouse, Volkswagen had refurbished the whole building but
preserved several historical features like the window panes on the second and third
level of their workshops.
That concludes our tour of Volkswagen Singapore's sprawling showroom, if you like what you see, why not pop by and take a look around, after all nothing beats an actual test-drive!
