The new Golf is the most significant new car from Volkswagen, but it will not make it to India in the near future, because the costs would not be practical for the Indian market.
Instead it will pave the way for an improved Jetta in the future, a car that is based on the Golf.
The new Skoda Rapid for Europe, although it looks like an ideal replacement for the Octavia, will not be coming in, as it is smaller than the competition and is not part of the MQB platform.
The modular transverse matrix or MQB will be the basis for all hatchbacks and premium sedans from the group, the Golf being the first to be based on it.
Volkswagen will eventually have all its cars from the Polo to the Passat based on it.
Another MQB candidate, the A3 was finally shown in four-door form.
This one, the estate won't be making it here but the sedan will in 2013 and will be the cheapest Audi on sale in India when it does.
Other VW group company products like the Lamborghini Gallardo have received a product refresh while yet another limited edition of the Bugatti Veyron, the most expensive production car in the world was shown.
Ducati, Volkswagen Group's latest buyout and the first two-wheeler brand in their portfolio were keen to show their new Multistrada and a revised version of their superbike, the Panigale.
