The Volkswagen up! is probably the most significant car from Volkswagen, especially in the Indian context. Rumours and speculations aside, VW has proven that it is capable of building a quality small car on its own, and needn't borrow the expertise from Suzuki (with whom they share a cross-holding in stock). There were stories that the VW up! would be little more than a re-badged Maruti Wagon R, but those stories have been well and firmly quashed.
