SAIC-Volkswagen has launched the Lavida XR sedan in the Chinese market and is said to be priced below 100,000 yuan (Rs 11.57 lakh).
The Lavida XR is essentially the Chinese version of the Volkswagen Virtus mid-size sedan offered in India. It even has the same underpinnings as the Virtus with the MQB-A0-IN platform.
The Volkswagen Lavida XR is the new entry-level sedan offering from the brand in China. The car will be manufactured at the SAIC-VW joint-venture plant in China and is expected to rival the likes of the Nissan Sylphy.
In terms of design, the Lavida XR looks identical to the Virtus, albeit with a few market-specific changes. This includes a different grille pattern, chrome on the air intake on the front bumpers, dark-tinted tail lights, an optional sunroof, 16-inch alloys, a standard full LED headlamp setup and Chinese badging. The Lavida XR also features China-specific paint schemes, including Turquoise, Blue, Red, White & Black.
Inside, the Lavida XR is identical to the Virtus with almost no changes. The dashboard features an 8-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit and all the other features and tech expected.
