“Win The Icon” contest finally comes to an end after a two-month search. The winner of a brand-new Volkswagen Beetle 1.2TSI is a 28-year-old high school teacher from Perak, Muhamad Rizal bin Sadiman.
The contest which ran from 1st October till 30th November saw over 800 posts and submissions of photos and videos of Malaysians test-driving their favorite Volkswagen models while documenting their experience. Participants were to caption their submissions creatively with the hashtag #BetterExperiencedThanExplained.
Rizal submitted a video of him test driving the Polo and Tiguan and says “A Volkswagen is truly better experienced than explained. Safety is a top priority for me as I was involved in an accident two years ago where the brakes failed. In my submission video, I showcased how the Tiguan performs during emergency braking and I am very impressed. The Polo is another favorite as we had one in the family and it is a sturdy pocket rocket. I am so thrilled and excited about this win. I can’t wait to drive my new Beetle around town and to school.”
Volkswagen has ceased production of the Beetle in July this year after 80 years of production and this makes Rizal one of the lucky few to own a Beetle before they are all gone.
