Volkswagen Bora I facelift rear

The original Volkswagen Bora started out as a rebadged MK4 Jetta. The Bora in China received a facelift in the summer of 2006, with a Passat Mk5.5 lookalike face which is a rebadged City Jetta. The model available in Mexico, Canada, Brazil and Argentina from 2008 was likewise facelifted with the same design found in China. There is also a heavily modified Jetta called the Volkswagen Lavida for the Chinese market, developed by Shanghai Volkswagen on the same platform.

Bora HS

A hatchback version (i.e. the Golf) is also available after the facelift, and is badged as the Bora HS.[1] Production began in 2006 and ended in 2008.
