Published on October 17, 2012 by Tycho de Feijter
Spy shots from the Volkswagen Sagitar GLI, the most sporty version of the Volkswagen Sagitar sedan. It will get the same 200hp 2.0 TSI under the bonnet as the Chinese-made Volkswagen Golf GTI, mated to a six-speed DSG. Serious power for a serious sedan!
The Sagitar GLI loox very much the same as the base Sagitar. Alloys are a bit sporty and paint seems of a higher quality. Both the Sagitar and Golf are made in China by the FAW-Volkswagen joint venture.The Sagitar is basically the same car as the US-spec Volkswagen Jetta. The Jetta-name however is already used for another Volkswagen so the Germans came up with Sagitar.
The standard Volkswagen Sagitar. Price ranges from 131.800 yuan to 185.800 yuan. Engines: 1.4 turbo, 1.6, 1.4 TSI, and 1.8 TSI.
