VOLKSWAGEN VALUE FOR 1992

 VOLKSWAGEN VALUE FOR 1992
 AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Volkswagen United


States enters the 1992 model year with a special pricing package on Passat GL and Jetta models.
 "Value for the money is clearly what consumers are looking for and what Volkswagen stands for," said Welton C. Mansfield, vice president of Volkswagen United States. "We are enhancing our value positioning with special pricing packages while offering that precise handling, driver control and feeling of security that Volkswagens are known for."
 The Passat GL, Volkswagen's mid-sized family sedan, has lowered its 1992 manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) to $16,995 and the wagon to $17,390, saving consumers $550 and $580, respectively. The Jetta GL, VW's best-selling car in the U.S., is priced at an MSRP of $11,995 and the Jetta Carat is $13,540. Both include air conditioning, normally an $840 option.
 "The Passat and Jetta exemplify the attributes of a Volkswagen," said Mansfield. "They offer dependability, durability and quality. Our new pricing makes them a superior value."
 "The 1992 Passat GL and GL wagon offer extensive standard features, including air conditioning, AM/FM stereo cassette sound system with six speakers, cruise control, an anti-theft alarm system, power steering, tinted glass, height-adjustable steering column, electric rear-window defogger and dual remote-control outside mirrors.
 The 1992 Jetta GL offers such standard features as height-adjustable steering column, tinted glass, electric rear-window defogger, power steering, dual remote-control outside mirrors, intermittent wipers, and air conditioning.
 The Jetta Carat adds additional standard features including cruise control, central locking system, power windows and mirrors, and rear headrests.
 In addition to these 1992 introductory offers, Volkswagen will continue to provide a special value package for its 1991 Wolfsburg Edition Fox GL. The $8,495 MSRP includes air conditioning and an AM/FM stereo cassette and offers a savings of $1,030.
 Volkswagen's full 1992 model line is as follows:
 PASSAT
 In addition to the Passat GL, the line includes the CL and, later in the model year, the Passat GLS and GLS wagon with an innovative 2.8-liter, 172-horsepower VR6 engine. Like the Passat GL, the CL model houses a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder, multi-valve engine that produces 134 horsepower.
 CORRADO
 The Volkswagen Corrado begins the model year with the 158-horsepower G60 model then slips into an even higher performance 178-horsepower SLC version featuring VW's narrow-angle VR6 engine.
 JETTA
 In addition to the Jetta GL and Carat, the line offers the Jetta GLI 16V, a 2-liter, 16-valve, 134-horsepower engine, and the Jetta GL ECOdiesel, a 1.6-liter engine with a low-boosting turbocharger and oxidation catalyst to help reduce emissions.
 GTI
 Volkswagen doesn't let up on performance with its 1992 GTI. The GTI's 1.8-liter, 105-horsepower engine achieves a top track speed of 114 miles per hour, while the GTI 16V's 2-liter, 16-valve, 134-horsepower, dual overhead cam engine has a top track speed of 125 mph.
 CABRIOLET
 Convertibles, which enjoyed their heyday in the '60s, have experienced a resurgence of popularity in the '90s. And Volkswagen has been there throughout.
 Entering its 36th year of the "ragtop" is VW's 1992 Cabriolet and Cabriolet Carat. These Karmann coachworks classics offer a 1.8-liter, 94-horsepower engine.
 GOLF
 The Volkswagen Golf continues its enormous success in Europe where it has been the most popular passenger car on the continent for eight consecutive years. The Golf GL two- and four-door hatchback features a 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder, 100-horsepower engine and an extensive standard equipment level.
 FOX
 The Volkswagen Fox offers a 1.8-liter, 81-horsepower engine through a four-speed manual transmission on the two-door Fox and a five-speed manual transmission on the four-door GL model.
 For 1992, all VW models offer radios that are activated via the ignition switch.
 The entire VW line is covered by a comprehensive five-year/50,000- mile powertrain limited warranty; a six-year/unlimited mileage limited warranty against corrosion and rust perforation, and a two-year/24,000- mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that covers virtually all components against defects in materials and workmanship, including light bulbs and windshield wiper blades.
 All prices, including savings claims, are based on the manufacturer's suggested retail price and do not include taxes, title, dealer preparation and destination charge.
