I think the DSG technology will soon trickle down into Skoda and maybe the offerings in India will get DSG with paddle shifters. Anyone heard anything about this from the Skoda side?
The new Skoda Laura Tdi comes with DSG gearbox in India.
From what I know only the new Golf GTI has DSG with paddle shifters.

I see. Thanks for that piece of info Amit. I thought DSG, by design, will have a paddle shifter. From your comment, it looks like DSG comes without the paddle shifter also.

DSG doesn't come with paddle shifters by default. But yea, I drove a Jetta Tdi DSG after almost a month of driving in a normal automatic and the DSG just blew my mind with it's super fast shifts. You have to test drive a car with DSG to understand what I mean!

wow Amit, nice writeup. So the next big thing after the DSG in india , we can expect the PAddle shift coming here.

TSXei...Skoda is launching the LAURA with the DSG Gearbox, but unfortunately no PaddleShift! maybe if they add that in, then it wud be more VFM!
