It denotes power, performance and efficiency and to bring out that character in the cars, Volkswagen India has tweaked the design to include a stylish honeycomb grille, sporty body graphics that flow down the side, black ORVMs, a glossy black roof and spoiler and of course you get bold TSI badges across the passenger doors.
