Held annually since 1996, Le Tour de Langkawi (LTDL) is a multiple stage bicycle race that has gained multiple accolades and is now recognised as a highlight in the global competitive cycling calendar, attracting the world’s top road cyclists.
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) returns to LTDL as the official automotive partner, marking the third time since 2016. VPCM will be providing 120 units of Volkswagen Tiguan Highline, which will be used throughout the race by riders, safety marshals and officials.
To recap, the Tiguan is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder direct injection engine mated to a 6-speed wet type dual clutch gearbox (DSG). Outputs are 150 PS and 250 Nm of torque.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM said, “We are honoured to be back as part of LTDL this year as the race celebrates its silver jubilee, and we are confident that the Tiguan will be a good fit and support to the operations team in terms of safety, endurance, agility and speed. On behalf of Volkswagen, we wish the participants all the very best for this year’s race.”
