Following in the wake of the previous Chinese designed Lavida, which sold 700.000 cars, VW is showing off their new car. The 2012 Lavida gets the new family face which bares a striking resemblance to the current Passat. However, if you were to compare the two cars side by side, you’d notice the considerable size difference between them - the Lavida is Jetta-sized.
The new car has increased levels of comfort and safety, with ABS, ESP and front airbags fitted as standard.

From launch, it will be offered with three choices of engines: 2.0-liter, 1.6-liter and a 1.4-liter turbo motor developing 140 hp. All cars are front-wheel drive with the power being transmitted either by a manual six-speed box or by VW’s seven-speed dual-clutch system.
