Meanwhile, the Lavida 1.4 TSI DSG SE, which has a retail price of P1,171,000, will be offered with a P85,000 discount.
The Santana MPI MT is powered by a 1.4-liter petrol engine that produces 90 hp and 132 Nm, with power being sent to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual. On the other hand, the Santana 180 MPI AT S and SE variants offer more power with its 1.5-liter petrol engine that produces 110 hp and 150 Nm of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission is offered as standard.
For ride comfort and stability, all Santana variants feature standard ISOFIX child seat anchor points, ABS with EBD, and front dual airbags.
The Santana variants with automatic transmission get more features which include 15-inch alloy wheels and Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP) while SE variant features added amenities such as rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, rear parking sensors, multifunction steering wheel, and front side airbags.
On the other hand, the Lavida 230 TSI DSG SE is equipped with a 1.4-liter inline-4 turbo petrol engine that produces 130 hp and 225 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Safety highlights include front dual and side airbags, ESP with Brake Assist, Electronic Differential Lock, Anti Slip Regulation (ASR), Hill Hold Control, and front and rear parking sensors.
The warranty coverage for these models is comprehensive. Aside from the 3 years or 100,000-km general warranty (whichever comes first), the periodic maintenance service (PMS) interval schedule is also structured for its owners’ convenience. The PMS interval is once a year, or every 10,000 kilometers (whichever comes first). This is more convenient and more cost-efficient compared to the industry-standard 5,000-km PMS interval. In addition, all Volkswagen vehicle purchases automatically register the owner to the 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERA) that provides that added layer of security, safety, and peace of mind in the event of accidents or vehicle breakdowns.
