The Volkswagen Lavida is a simple and straightforward car that’s perfect for Filipino families looking for a first family car. The exterior and interior amenities lean toward the class yet durable side which should make the compact sedan easy to maintain.
In terms of fuel consumption, the VW Lavida clocks in at 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
Volkswagen offers the Lavida with the Volkswagen Service Advantage which includes a one-year or 10,000km PMS, three years or 100,000km warranty, and a one-year 24/7 emergency roadside assistance for free.
Back in 2019, Volkswagen Philippines released two variants, the Club Edition and Club Edition+, although they are no longer available on Volkswagen Philippines’ website.
These dressed-up Lavidas had upgraded body kits including “Club Edition” decals with sporty 18-inch rims for the Club Edition and a touchscreen audio package with a Kicker speaker system for the upscaled “+” Edition.
