Volkswagen officials have previously claimed that this could be because no new models were present to raise interest. But the likes of the Skoda Slavia and Volkswagen Virtus have emerged as the newest kids on the block while Hyundai has also updated its Verna while the latest Honda City - with ADAS - was launched earlier this year too. Maruti Suzuki also has an interest in the segment with its Ciaz.
