In these times when petrol prices are rising, Volkswagen is launching the Petrol version of their popular Sedan, Volkswagen Jetta. Sure, the unveiling happened a while back but the car is yet to see daylights. Being auto enthusiasts, our eyes and ears are always open for exiting and breaking news, and one such information that we came across was that yesterday late at night, a few popular magazines were called by the Volkswagen India for the official test drive. Soon enough we might see this variant across all dealerships present in India for Volkswagen Cars. This news is encouraging a lot of speculations regarding whether this is an intelligent move by Volkswagen India or not because of several reasons vis a vis; the rising petrol prices and the slowing down of sales of cars due to the increase in the excise duty, which was announced in the union budget this year.
Anyway, this is something that every News would soon cover but the whole point of discussion here is the rise in excitement and the cut throat competition that the Indian car market is seeing.
