LDV’s Mifa Coming To Australia In November In 7 And 8-Seat Guises


The bold LDV Mifa will land on Australian shores in November as a “people mover for the next generation,” or so the Chinese automaker says.

LDV will sell the Mifa in three grades in Australia; the Mode, Executive, and Luxe. All three versions will share the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine pumping out 160 kW (215 hp) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. This engine works alongside an Aisin eight-speed automatic transmission.

While full details of the Chinese-built Mifa won’t be announced until mid-November, we know that it will be offered in seven- and eight-seater configurations and include six-way electrically adjustable captain’s chairs in the first and second rows. The minivan will also feature footrests and fold-out tray tables to give occupants the feeling of sitting in the business class of an aircraft.

Much like other LDV models sold in Australia, the Mifa comes loaded with safety features as standard. These include front and rear Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control, rear collision warning, lane departure warning, and a speed assist system.

“The all-new LDV MIFA is a glimpse into the future,” LDV general manager Dinesh Chinappa described in a statement. “Every new MIFA model will come with a significant level of standard safety equipment, convenient features, fuel-efficient powertrain and more for hard-working Australian families. While it might not share the heart of its electric sibling, the MIFA 9, it does share the fundamentals of evolutionary design, passenger comfort, safety and more. It has advanced the people mover game significantly and we’re looking forward to redefining the segment that has, until now, been dominated by two brands.”

Confirmation of the LDV Mifa’s impending launch in Australia comes just a month after the SAIC-owned car manufacturer confirmed that it will also a launch a trio of EVs in the market, consisting of its eT60 pickup, the eDeliver 9 large van, and the Mifa 9 electric people mover.
