The DT Dobie on Monday launched a new seven seater ‘Tiguan Allspace’ in line with supporting the ‘Big Four’ Agenda on manufacturing.
The DT Dobie Director, Business Development, Matt Oliver said the vehicle has been well received globally and expressed confidence that it will be a success in the Kenyan market.
“The launch of the ‘Tiguan Allspace’ will enhance the growing range of locally assembled vehicles which are produced at the Kenya Vehicle Manufactures (KVM) facility in Thika,” added Olver.
Speaking during the launch at the DT Dobie New Uhuru Highway Showroom in Nairobi, Oliver disclosed that in 2016, DT Dobie launched the Volkswagen Polo Vivo which is the first ever locally assembled German car in Kenya followed by the Caddy Kombi.
‘Tiguan Allspace’ has a two litre turbo charged 132 kilowatt engine, mated with a seven-speed automatic transmission and features four-motion permanent four-wheel drive.
‘‘We have two trim specifications to choose from with the pricing starting from a very competitive Sh. 4.5 million for the Trendline and Sh.5.5 million for the Highline,’’ said Oliver.
He said that locally assembly programme of DT Dobie has brought new ownership within reach for many more Kenyans as they are attractive and cost-effective alternatives to buying second hand cars.
The Director assured buyers of the ‘Tiguan Allspace’ that the cars will be driven for years before they reach mileage of a used imported car.
