Published on February 15, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
New spy shots again of the upcoming Volkswagen Lavida Variant, a China-only hatchback-like wagon based on the China-only Volkswagen Lavida which is made in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. The Volkswagen Lavida Variant will debut on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and it will be launched on the Chinese car market in June.
Volkswagen still tries to fool us with Skoda badges. Knock it off, we know what it is now!, and so does the Chinese press. Interestingly, the Lavida wagon-hatch will be slightly shorter than the Lavida sedan, 4454 against 4605, wheelbase is the same with 2610. Engines as in the sedan: a 130hp 1.4 turbo and a 104hp 1.6. Price will start around 120.000 yuan.
