Vehicle shopping? Three reasons you need to visit Nanaimo’s Harbourview VW

Two exciting new vehicles and a family-owned approach makes the dealership a local favourite

Excitement is building at Harbourview VW, and it’s not only for the brand-new showroom and service centre taking shape on-site.

One of Nanaimo’s last family-owned and operated dealerships, Harbourview has been in the Wynia family for 34 years. From humble beginnings down on Haliburton Road, the dealership has enjoyed steady growth, leading to its current expansion.

When complete, Harbourview clients will enjoy a 10-car showroom – a big jump from the current two-car space. “We’re building a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly facility for our staff and customers. We’ll even have rooftop solar panels,” says the dealership’s Andrew Morrison.

This and more is taking shape at the Wellington Road dealership – here are three more reasons to stop by this month:

Reason 1: The brand new VW Atlas Volkswagen’s first seven-seat sport utility vehicle is new on the lot this month. Stylish, with efficient drivability and power when you need it, check out the Atlas’s full, adult-size third-row seating, ample cargo space, standard App-Connect smart phone integration, touchscreen radio/stereo and safety features including rearview widescreen camera and multi-collection braking. Additional options include climate control, remote start, panoramic power sunroof, blind spot detection and more.

Reason 2: VW’s first fully electric car – The perfect complement to Harbourview’s new green building is the eGolf, Canada’s first 100-per-cent electric Volkswagen. Choose from three efficiency driving modes, 201-kilometre range and quick charge capability. It’s not all about efficiency, though. The new eGolf retains that sleek appearance and fun-to-drive powerful performance that’s made it a driver favourite.

Reason 3: Service and selection – If you don’t find the Volkswagen model and colour you’re looking for, the Harbourview VW sales staff will be happy to find the perfect match. If you’re interested in pre-owned cars, check the dealership’s inspected and certified used inventory. That same commitment to quality continues to the parts and service department, where the talented team will keep your vehicle driving its best for years to come. “Volkswagen owners are very loyal. It’s an excellent product and it’s something they won’t find anywhere else,” Morrison says.

Nanaimo’s Harbourview Volkswagen is the Central Island’s premier location for a new Volkswagen or pre-owned car. New cars in stock include the Golf, Beetle, SportWagen, Passat, Jetta, Atlas, Tiguan and Touareg. Keep up to date with all the excitement at harbourviewvw.com or visit them on Facebook.
