@prabhjot Business sense would dictate that they have a variant with something similar to a DSG. Reason - Well a lot of very expensive cars might in the end be used for a small trip to the neighborhood grocer's. In India there are very very few true enthusiasts and even fewer truly good roads. So one ends up inevitably driving in bumper to bumper traffic. Second a lot of people would want a sports car but they cannot afford 2 cars (10 L is on the upper end of a hatchback in India). At the least having aan automatic option down the line is something that they ought to look to. My viewpoint is strictly business and would only make sense if they are able to move numbers for the Punto T-jet.
