Scheduled to hit local dealerships in June, the 2013 Lavida Variant found its way on a couple of giant billboards outside Shanghai’s exhibition hall, in two images that picture the car’s rear quarter and tail lamps.

Built by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture, the Lavida Variant, which is based on the Chinese-exclusive Lavida sedan, will be powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine with 130 bhp and a 1.6-liter mill with 104 bhp.

Pricing has yet to be revealed, but according to several reports the Lavida Variant should be sold starting from CNY120,000 ($19,400). Rather a hatchback/wagon hybrid, the Lavida Variant is expected to appeal to Chinese customers looking for cheap estates.
