Volkswagen In Oman Celebrates Opening Of New Showroom Facility In Athaiba

New State of the Art Facility Provides Larger Dedicated Showroom for Customers


Muscat, 21 November, 2011:  Volkswagen in Oman, distributed exclusively by Wattayah Motors, has announced the official opening of its exciting new showroom facility in Athaibah – expanding its operations in Muscat with the opening of its second major showroom in the city.

The new showroom will give customers a new and exciting location in which to visit and experience the wide array of world class Volkswagen cars and SUVs available to the motoring public in Oman.

Wattayah Motors General Manager James Oliver, along with other officials, declared the new showroom officially open today in front of selected guests and media representatives.

The rapid growth of the Volkswagen brand in recent years has led to the decision to expand its operations and open  a second location that will be convenient for the customer by offering a new location in Muscat, allowing the company to display the wide range of models and facilities they offer to even greater effect than in the past with an added facility.

The models that will be displayed  include all of Volkswagen’s bestselling cars  including  the Golf, Passat, Dakar rally winning off road powerhouse the Touareg, Tiguan, and the enormously successful all-new Jetta, that has already proved extremely popular following its launch in May this year.

Commenting on the launch of the new showroom, James Oliver said: “We are delighted to be officially opening our second Muscat showroom here in Athaiba – reflecting the continuing growth and expansion of our Volkswagen business here in the Sultanate.”

“In recent years Volkswagen has started to become an increasingly popular brand here in Oman and the Middle East region, as more and more members of the motoring public recognise the world class engineering, build quality, power and style offered across so many diverse models. This expansion is also in line with Volkswagen global aim to be the number one car manufacturer in the world by 2018, a goal which Oman is strategically aligned to support.”

“The safety features of every Volkswagen have also ensured that our cars have become one of the most popular brands among families and young executives who are increasingly concerned about ensuring the safety of their loved ones travelling in the urban areas or to the more remote regions of the country.”

He explained that the expansion into a second showroom in Athaiba, adding to their existing Wattayah premises would also give customers the added benefit of having two showroom locations to choose from depending on where they live or work in the Muscat Governorate area. In addition we also plan a major expansion of Volkswagen throughout the Sultanate to bring the world class service of Volkswagen within easy reach of everyone.

The new showroom will ensure that more models than in the past can be displayed allowing the customer to easily view and access the widest range of Volkswagen cars and SUVs – helped by Wattayah Motors highly experienced and knowledgeable sales team.

Visitors to the new showroom will also be able to benefit from the ongoing service excellence campaign from Volkswagen that has been designed for motorists who just love to drive.

On select models including the Tiguan, Jetta, Golf GTI, Scirroco and Touareg customers can benefit from 5 yeas years extended warranty, 5 years/60,000 km free service, 3 years roadside assistance and a first year’s motor insurance free until 31st December 2011
