Volkswagen has added a second member to the new Lavida Plus family, in the form of a station wagon version that gains the Grand prefix.
Set to be offered alongside the current model, just like the four-door derivative, the new Volkswagen Lavida Plus is 4,541mm (179in) long, 1,806mm (71in) wide and 1,488mm (59in) tall, with a 2,688mm (106in) long wheelbase, CarNewsChina reports. This makes it a tad larger overall than its predecessor.
Underpinned by the Group’s MQB platform, the estate is said to be powered by three different engines: a new 1.5-liter unit that makes 116 horses, a 1.2-liter turbo with 116hp and a 150hp 1.4-liter turbo. The latter two have been updated over the previous five-door Lavida, whereas the former replaces the 1.6-liter 110hp unit. Buyers will also have to choose between two transmissions: a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
No images with the interior have been released yet, but it features the same amenities as the new Volkswagen Lavida Plus. This means leather and other premium materials, a touchscreen infotainment system, dual-zone climate control and more.
The German automaker will showcase the Grand Lavida Plus at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, starting with April 25. Subsequently, it will enter production and will be made by the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. Sales should commence in China in the coming months, with pricing is estimated to start at approximately 125,000 yuan (equal to $19,919).
