One Minute Walk-around: Volkswagen Lamando GTS

August 7, 2017 by Tycho de Feijter

A good look at the Volkswagen Lamando GTS, the sporty variant of the Lamando, a China-only sedan based on the VW MQB platform. The GTS comes with a body kit, a rear spoiler, sporty seats, and a lot of GTS badges. Power comes from a 2.0 turbo with 220hp and 350nm, this is the same engine that powers the China-made Golf GTI.

List price is a massive $34,000 which is way too expensive. Price at the dealer however is $25,000, a massive incentive of $9,000. But that is still not cheap and the GTS is therefore a very rare bird on the road. I had to go to a Shanghai-Volkswagen dealer for this movie.

Still, we hugely appreciate that Volkswagen really tried to make something seriously special and sporty for China. They have done it before; the GTS can be seen as the true successor of the beautiful Volkswagen Bora R.
