So as expected it is not much of a surprise. For the month of March they are offering the following freebies which as per them offsets the depreciation.
- Interest rate @ 5%
- 3years/45,000kms maintenance plan and insurance
- 4 years warranty
- 3yr paint and 12 year anti perforation warranty

Boy and we had such speculation, building lovely tales about what can be - and I guess we mostly got it wrong.
While the teaser ad was appreciated, the main campaign is much "depreciated", if not deprecated.

I have an article on VW. `Enterprise and State in the West German Wirtschaftswunder: Volkswagen and the Automobile Industry, 1939-1962'. A page from it is reproduced below:

The Touareg i am talking about is the to be launched all new 2nd Gen (so called 3rd Gen in USA) which will be launched after the launch of the Porsche Cayenne (2nd Gen; dont mix it up with the 2007/08 facelift). This Cayenne is expected in the 2nd qtr of 2010. The Touareg, which would be based on the Porsche would follow it in a 6 to 9 month gap. So, all new Touareg (Touareg 3 in USA) will make a global debut by end of 2010 or early 2011.
It is not possible to import Tiguan thro' dealers because, if the car's price is less than US$40000 and has an engine with capacity less than 2500cc incase of Diesel or 3000 cc in case of Petrol, then the car must go through the homologation process. Because Tiguan cost about $25000 - $35000 (crazily loaded with most options) and also because the engines are all less than 2000cc (less than the requirements), it wouldn't be possible.
Only VW / a dealer (who could sell sufficient numbers to cover the cost of the multi million rupees, 6 months valid homologation license) can obtain the license and sell the car.
Optionally, one could bring in his tiguan (after using it abroad for 2/3/5 years-not sure) by the change of residence route.
A crazy alternative - import the tiguan by paying the cost of a BENTLEY (obtain the homologation by yourself)!!!!
Hope this answers.
