For now, there are no official details on this car, but the Chinese media is reporting that it packs a 2.0-liter TSI turbo engine producing 220 PS and 350 NM of torque, matched to a 7-speed DSG gearbox. Ironically, we featured a Lamando GTI rendering over one year ago but never thought that it would get built. Yet China is getting not one but two performance sedans at the same time. A few days ago, we showed you the 2017 Jetta GLI, another one of VW’s GTI spinoffs. It will be competition to Mercedes CLA and BMW 2-Series. There is no information whether it will be sold in Europe. We hope it will be. Price will be beetween 35-55 000€ .
The front bumper that has extra-large air intakes and the upper grille that now features a red GTI-like stripe and honeycomb grille. Around the back, this thing reminds us of the Skoda Octavia RS, having fake rectangular exhaust tips integrated into the bumper and a fixed wing on top of the trunk lid. Side skirt inserts and gloss black mirror covers complete the transformation.
