Two Box Lavida Shows Its Face

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

The Lavida has been a hit for VW China, the car was designed specifically by SH-VW whilst FAW-VW produced a new Bora to give consumers a choice below the Golf/Sagitar line up. The Lavida came with 2.0L, 1.8L, 1.6L and 1.4TSI engines but that crowd was later thinned to 1.6L or 1.4TSI models with automatic or manual gearboxes. The Lavida was an instant hit, like all three box VW’s sold in China. VW has no hatch option other than the Polo below the Golf, the Lavida hatch is set to fill that gap.

The Lavida wont be called the hatchback in the Chinese market, if Chinese media can be believed the hatch will be known as the Sportback model as with the Audi A3.

According to internal VW production plans, the hatch will take up around 18% of total Lavida production over the course of 2013 which obviously means the sedan will remain king of the production lines at least from April onwards when low level production begins.

Another model, above the Lavida but below the Golf/Sagitar range is due to launch in China in the next few months. The new model will likely air itself at the Shanghai Auto Show this April.
