My head says to go with Octavia. :Frustrate

Given the uncertainty can some one advise Jetta still make sense?
Would suggest you to wait and watch for a month or so and then take a call. Are you getting huge discounts?

You can consider an octavia as Skoda is trying improve service quality and also throwing a 4 year standard warranty.
Octavia diesel is better option but you would loose multi link suspension when compared to TSI.

After test driving, Corolla, Jetta, Octavia and evaluating pros and cons, buying Jetta made sense. First there were news from Autocar that Jetta getting discontinued. I reached out VW customer care to know if its getting discontinued, their after sales people called me up but they did not have such information.

Well, I am in a Similar situation! We have been Waiting to replace my 2008 Ford Fiesta 1.6 Petrol and The bar set by my car , Drivability, Response from The Steering is pretty High! Almost Booked the Highline TDI AT, But just waiting for The New Elantra to launch (August 23rd ) to make a Confirm Decision!

Even if the Jetta is discontinued, You'll be covered for 4Years If you are opting for extended Warranty( As mentioned by someone on this Thread).

Resale value is Usually pretty Bad for German Cars and either way ,If you've planned to keep the Car for Four Years, There is no point in thinking about the resale Value as the Car has already Depreciated quite a bit within the first 3 years.

I strongly Feel that ACI report is not true, Seems well in time, when a Brand New D1 Segment Vehicle is being launched .

When I bought Cedia back in 2007, I bought it coz it was Mitsubishi rally machine. It was the period of Honda City selling like hot cake and "kitna deytee hai" times. Mitsubishi discontinued Cedia in 2010. I replaced all 4 shocks, all suspension bushings, tie rods and ball joints few months ago. Mitsubishi has global market share in decimal percentage and VW is#1 car seller!
That's why I ain't worried a bit to book my Jetta.

I'd say stick to Jetta 2.0 TDi. The Octavia 1.4 TSi is very much a niche combination as of now, plus you lose a lot of the safety features.

If VW chooses to discontinue Jetta then you can extract more discounts (may be 1 to 2 Lac) on 2016 manufactured car. I think its better to wait and watch.
Octavia 1.4 TSI is no match when compared to Jetta 2.0 TDI as latter has more power, more FE, more safety features and a multi link rear suspension.

I somehow suspect that this is a marketing ploy to get people to buy the current gen Jetta. They would be insane to drop diesels altogether from their lineup for the Jetta considering most folks use it as a highway cruiser.

It could be also that VAG may think (read:strategize) that Skoda is the luxury brand for India and leave VW to other countries. Again, a crazy idea but having observed their pattern, it sure wouldn't be too far a stretch.

Or could be something big going on behind the scene on their diesel scandal which could end up in a "ban" and they don't want dead stockpile on diesel cars.

This is referring to the US market, where obviously VW is trying to sort out the emissions scandal. They are withdrawing Diesels there sue to the backlash. Does not mean anything for India, where cuatomer still loves Diesel and care generally very little about emissions ( other than to the extent of what might happen to residual values in case of government actions.)

Did you get a good discount? If yes, can you please share how much it was?

Thanks.

Edit: never mind. Just read your post above regarding price. In case there are any more inputs it will be appreciated.

Congrats on the Jetta! It's a fabulous vehicle, and will leave you grinning for years to come.

Please put up some pictures and the review up soon. I don't think we have a blue silk on Tbhp yet.
