Default Volkswagen Passat launched in India!

News just in from a reliable source. Volkswagen Passat is getting lanched in Sept 2007. They'll be coming out with a 2.0 TDI variant first followed by petrol. Picing will be in the bracket of 20-22 lacs. Next in line is VW polo mid next year.

Golf GTI!!! Now, wouldn't that be a dream? No buddy, no plans to launch that, at least for the next 6 years (and this is straight from the horses mouth, if you know what I mean).

More or less sure. Unless they change it at the last moment due to some import surcharge etc.

Thanks pal for giving us this great news .BTW the pricing is OTR or Xshowroom ? If its X showroom then the OTR price would be near Rs. 25 lacs and IMO it would not help them generate good sales numbers cos by just adding few lacs you get a Merc or a beemer or Audi .
I would say thats bad pricing .
