Volkswagen Philppines and the LICA Auto Group, officially opened a new Volkswagen dealership in Santa Rosa last August 16, 2019, along the automotive row of the Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road. This new dealership targets customers mainly in the Calabarzon Area (Region 4A) which includes the provinces of Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon.

“Establishing our 8th Volkswagen dealership in the country, at the economic epicenter of a developing phenomenon that is the Calabarzon area, was a very easy decision to make. And in collaboration with the LICA Auto Group, we are able to establish our presence in a very exciting market. Now, the region’s residents and enterprises will have more access to the German engineering, build quality, and driving experience of Volkswagen automobiles and the accompanying Volkswagen aftersales services and support,” said Volkswagen Philippines’ President, Felipe Estrella.
