We are still in complete darkness that if this beauty will come to India or not, but it is making its way to the ‘Land of Kangaroos’ in the month September. If this Hatch comes to India, it is expected to compete with the upcoming Mercedes Benz A Class. Based on the fact that these days ‘The Four Rings’ are the most serious competitor of the ‘Three Pointed Star’, we expect this premium hatch to hit the Indian Car Market sooner! Audi India, when can we expect this beauty in India?
