VW Sagitar GLI Readying for China

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

The pu-tong (regular) Sagitar has been on the market for a few months already and seems to be holding its ground in the sales figures as per usual for a VW vehicle in the PRC. Powered by the choice of 1.6L or 1.4TSI engines mated to DSI or manual transmissions the new Sagitar is a regular sight on Chinese roads, alongside the current Golf which is equally powered, except the Golf also comes in GTI form with a punch packing 2.0TSI engine.

The GLI has been readying for China for a number of months but hasn’t, as of yet, reached production lines. The GTI has proven itself to be a relatively popular vehicle so far with monthly sales circa 200-400 sales on average (little figures when compared to the Golf’s 10,000+ monthly sales), so perhaps the GLI will see similar figures when launched. The putong Sagitar uses a torsion beam rear suspension for the Chinese market, but the GLI is expected to use a fully independent system according to the Chinese rumor mill. Pricing is likely to be on par with the GTI, so roughly 230,000RMB to 250,000RMB, but will hot heads appreciate the GLI or will they simply opt for the slightly more expensive but considerably roomier Magotan?

    This will probably be outsold by the Magotan!
