The 150bhp eninge is same as the RS. Also the Audis use the same ones.

This car has already been tested by various Media people. Saw it on TV as well. It has a unique key which costs Rs. 25,000 itself.

Then whats the point of having different brands like VW, Audi, Skoda etc if they all sell in the same range?

I agree , its sad that we end up paying the price of an S Class and all we get is a C Class or a Camry . Sad.

Cars are not always bought for racing, dude. There is more to car than just 0-100 numbers. Having said that, 30L looks steep for Passat.

How can a Passat be more expensive than a C Class Merc ??

I think VW has borrowed some dope from their Czech cousins at Skoda ..

My mistake - I meant 'wins' as in market segment competition. Not street racing

I think its because its brought in as a CBU. Still its too much. Mondeo CBU was only 17-18.

Does VW have official dealerships yet?

Skoda Superb is based on prev gen Passat.

IMO they think that they are somehow selling cars from one brand or the other (same company different brands)

30L for a "common people's car". No way ......
