Agree to some extent, a partnership works mostly when DNA, the strategic goals, etc. have some similarity, here not much similarity between Tata & VW/Skoda exists.
But on the other side this deal is only about platform sharing to get cost benefits from volumes, very less chance anything to go wrong.

Default Skoda's Mega Plans

I just hope this whole partnership and platform sharing doesn't dilute the core quality of VW / Skoda cars. Although we speak about reliability issues, the fact is that VW's build quality is simply unmatched by Honda / Hyundai and Suzuki. And that's the reason for a certain fan following. If they move away from that then they lose that customer base.

Just look at Ford, they were known for well made cars that were fun to drive, now with the new Figo and aspire they have let go off that core USP and are struggling to match the Japanese and Koreans in pricing, servicing network and sales. Ford is in no man's land now, luckily the Ecosport and the Endy sort of help them maintain a certain perception.

Mahindra and Skoda are rumored to engage in talks over after sales service.

Quote:
Mahindra FirstChoice Services, the company is close to completing the deal with Chevrolet. In addition, Mahindra FirstChoice is in talks with Skoda to provide car owners with a wider service network. The bigger Mahindra Skoda network will come as a boon for potential and existing Skoda car owners.
If the deal comes through, Mahindra FirstChoice won’t become the exclusive service outlet for Skoda. They’ll complement and work along with the existing Skoda service network.

India-spec Rapid Monte Carlo to get special paint combination and unique equipment.
Quote:
The India-edition Monte Carlo will naturally be based on the Indian car but will be done up on the same lines as the international model. It will thus come with a red exterior shade and an all-black interior. Additionally, it will also get an all-black grille and wing mirrors, along with 16-inch alloy wheels and a tailgate spoiler, both in black shade.

On the inside, the India-spec Rapid Monte Carlo will get unique aluminium scuff plates, faux-carbon fibre trim on the dashboard, a flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel, mobile holder, unique floor mats and upholstery with red stitching on the gear knob and aluminium sport pedals. The Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo for India will be priced around Rs 30,000 more than the standard top-spec trim.

Skoda Karoq is being evaluated for India. Will replace the outgoing Yeti.

Quote:
The all-new Kodiaq is set to spearhead Skoda's re-entry into the SUV world when it goes on sale towards the end of this year. The SUV will also strengthen the carmaker's positioning in the premium segment when it joins the Skoda Superb. Replacing the Yeti in Skoda's global portfolio, the Karoq will sit below the Kodiaq and give Skoda further volumes in India
