    I checked out the Santana at PIMS last week:

    When I opened the doors, it felt so light and I looked at its side profile it looked so thin! Side impact safety not looking good already.

    I sat inside. The dash design is so consistent with the rest of the Volkswagen sedan lineup. But the overall feel, is like an early 2000's car inside.

    I think the Vios 1.3 base will be a better choice than the Santana bec:

    Vios -latest gen. (still better even if its using the 2013 Vios platform) vs. Santana ( china only model and outdated/about to be replaced)

    Vios -complete safety features vs. Santana (dual SRS only)

    ^ nagtest drive ako nung manual. Ang awkward nung position ng left leg ko. Nasa ginta dahil nasa gitna ang clutch. Langya. Magkakalapit yung 3 pedals. Not really an issue yung magkakalapit. Kaso yun nga, halos nasa gitna ang clutch pedal. Aside form that, ok naman idrive

    What surprises me is the lavida. Very powerful. Very agile. Hamak na mas ok kaysa mazda 3 and altis. Sa civic maiksi lang masyado test drive ko noon kaya can't compare

    The Lavida comes with a turbocharged engine and it offers more torque at low rpms compared to the usual 1.6L NA engine of local compact cars, more torque even against 2.0L NA engines. The gas model versions of the 2016 Jetta and Golf also used a 1.4L turbo engine but tuned for more output, 150hp/250Nm instead of the 128hp/225Nm of the Lavida.

    very true. lousy china cars.

    dismayado ako since i am a caddy owner. replacing them with outdated china cars. it doesn't speak well of the company that holds the current dealership in our country.

    I was also surprised to see an “all-new” lineup of VW cars and none of the old timers at PIMS, like the Golf, Polo & Passat. The Tiguan was the only familiar car.

    ... and it's not even the newer Volkswagen Tiguan ... it's actually even older than the Tiguan released before this ...

    Agree. Until they sell again the Golf, Jetta, etc, Volkswagen Philippines is dead to me.
    Heck even Volkswagen China market sells the Golf. Meanwhile, even on by-order basis, Volkswagen PH won't.

    Hi sir, ask ko lang where available to get VW parts besides sa casa?

    We're looking at getting the Tiguan 280 TSI, but concerned lang about the availability of its parts here sa atin.

    Would greatly appreciate any info you may have to share. Thank you!
