India has become one of the emerging markets that carmakers want to get a sizable foothold, and Volkswagen is no exception. Today India gets what the rest of the world has had for almost 30 years, the Jetta. The current generation, now celebrating its fourth year, is available in three trim levels. All available engines produce about 100 horsepower, and the price will stay between $30,000 and $40,000. The mid-size sedan joins the more upscale Phaeton and Touareg that are already on sale in the country.

Continuing the expansion into this market, Volkswagen is also reported to be preparing a small car to be built and marketed specifically for the south Asian country by 2010.

The small car may be ideal for entering narrow routes, but Jetta would be much more useful in India.

That sounds good to me because India’s streets are very busy, and the traffic is quite heavy sometimes.

Well, that’s good! I think they made a smaller version in order to fit in the size of Indian road. However, what’s the current engine performance of the Jetta since three trim level has been done on it.

it wouldn’t be any better, it’d be worse, just with every car VW offers with stick and DSG options, DSG is faster to shift and more fuel efficient than a manual, it’s just not as fun.

Just another island colonized by Volkswagen. And they really find a right place. With a growing economy, plus a large population they will definitely get high sales there.
