source: Gasgoo.comAugust 19, 2008 - The new Bora, an all-new A-Class sedan of FAW-VW, will hit the Chinese market on October 10, priced between 110,000 yuan ($16,100) and 150,000 yuan. Consumers can now go to order this car at FAW-VW's dealerships nationwide.
The New Bora shares the heavily updated PQ34 platform with Lavida, and is powered by a choice of Euro-4 gasoline 1.6L and 2.0L engines. Both engines are distinguished by very refined performance and low fuel consumption. Measuring 4,540mm x 1,775mm x 1,467mm, the New Bora is roomier and 97mm longer than the old Bora. This model will target the market between Jetta and Sagitar.
FAW-VW unveiled its new Bora at the 2008 Beijing auto show in April. Visually, German and Chinese design elements merge in this front-wheel drive car. Corresponding to the mainstream design of current compact cars, the New Bora features the impressive leather seats, wooden decoration, DVD navigation system, and parking radar in its interior and configurations.
Billed as "a very independently designed mid-class sedan with first-class workmanship," this new-comer to the Bora series is a sedan designed on Volkswagen's global standards to satisfy the wishes of Chinese customers. It was jointly developed by Volkswagen and its Chinese partners FAW VW and Shanghai VW.
