So what is the TT doing in India. Well, it is part of a global testing program. Testing car in new terrains helps car manufacturer gather technical data. So even if a car is not going to launched in a particular market, the car maker will still go ahead and test the same in that market.
As far as India is concerned, it is one of the very few countries in the world where you would find the worst and the best roads, cold and hot climate, open highways and traffic jam. All this making India a prime location to test new cars. The TT will be launched in India, but surely after it has been launched in Europe and the US. Expect India launch to take place later this year or by early 2015.
