That's awesome! Way to go, GTO!

T-BHP is now *officially* the best car site/mag in India

I was to book a car sometime this week, but will wait for your review.

Both petrol and diesel Trendline prices are killers.

1.6L Petrol Highline MT is 82K less than City VMT
1.6L Petrol Highline AT is 54K less than City VAT

Would have loved more color options - are they considering any more than White and Red?

Wow! Excellent entry level pricing. Think it is even cheaper than base version of SX4. While the top end petrol AT is cheaper by about 50k than ANHC. The price difference between trim levels are pretty steep. Need to know what features makes up that much of a gap.

Eagerly waiting for your detailed TD report.

Wonder why VW is not offering Automatic in the Diesel Version. There are hardly any Diesel Automatic below 10 Lakhs except Verna. Pricing is Good. Hope they ramp up the production and reduce the waiting period.

Great pricing! But for sales to really pick up, the *** network will have to be built up big time if they are to make serious inroads into the national scene.

Yeah, love to see the City getting booted. Honda has been milking us for long. Its time somebody beats the pulp out of them.

For a while I thought I read this wrong. The fact that the post is from GTO lent credibility to these numbers though. The base model pricing is awesome. The rest are competetively priced as well. VW is showing some serious intent here.

6.99(remember its ex-delhi)??Good but isnt it a bit on the higher side, especially for a car which has a hatchback version available at a lesser price?
Not that the car might not be worth it.... Just a thought..
