Volkswagen Cross Lavida will hit the China car market on November 5

This is the new Volkswagen Cross Lavida, it will be launched in the China car market on November 5, price will start around 135.000 yuan. The Cross Lavida is a cross-themed variant of the Volkswagen Gran Lavida that was launched on the Chinese auto market in June. And the Lavida party isn’t over yet, as Volkswagen is working on a Gran Lavida Sport that will debut on the Guangzhou Auto Show in late November.

The Cross Lavida stands slightly higher on its feet and comes with all the usual cross thingies such as half-black bumpers, black plastic around the wheel arches, skid plates at the front and on the back, alu-look side skirts, special alloys, and most importantly a roof rack. Power comes from a 1.4 turbo with 130hp mated to a 6-speed DSG sending power to the front wheels. The Cross Lavida is made in China by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture.

Cross cars are still very popular in China, often outselling the vehicle they are based on. Chinese car buyers are increasingly looking for ‘individuality’ and they feel a mass-made crosser brings just that. The Cross Lavida is the first Volkswagen China-only crossover, but a similar vehicle based on the China-only Santana seems on the way.
