The Santana is Volkswagen Philippines' newest entry into the sub-compact segment. It rides on the long-wheelbase version of VW Group's PQ25 platform. It's styling is unmistakably Volkswagen, this means the same neat crisp lines inside and out one would expect from the German brand. Two body styles are available, a 4-door sedan and the 5-door GTS wagon. Safety features like ABS, dual SRS Airbags, 3-point seatbelts for all occupants, and ISOFIX seat anchors come as standard. The sedan Santana was given a mild update for 2021.
All variants are powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline mill which produces 109 HP and 145 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
