Too ugly for VW!

BTW, is this in Andheri (E) i.e. Andheri Kurla Road?

From the picture, it looks like a Right Hand Drive car. If i'm not mistaken, it's left hand driven cars for Germany. Isn't it?

the rear looks like the Petra, however the front looks nice.
Having said that, i doubt if it will hold well against the likes of the NNHC, Fiat Linea, and others

IMO, the rear its looking ugly. It looks much like Fiat Seina.
Can teach Verna, SX4, Fiesta and G3HC/G2HC a lesson if priced right with a good diesel.

It is in India for testing. VW has plans to launch this car.
Will be priced sub 9 lakh and if they get a 1.4tDi or similar. It will do wonders

Yuck ! This model should have been lanched 10 years back as per the looks !
Im not to sure how it ll survive with VW pricing in the C+ segment. The diesel engine could only save it.
