What Osmau Suzuki said is correct about VW.Suzuki is a low cost mass market brand compared to VW and technology which VW has is both expensive and questionable value in low cost mass market.Features like DSG gearboxes , projector lamps are useless in price sensitive low cost mass markets like ours.

Suzuki like Ferrari if in any dire problem will always approach a Japanese company like Toyota similar to Enzo Ferrari who though hated Angelli family of Fiat sold his company to Fiat than Ford.

VW builds good cars but has neglected Lamborghini and literally eroded the exoticness of this brand by launching unnecessary products like Audi R8 , Bugatti Veyron .these cars should have been branded as lambo.Lamborghini product pails in comparison to Ferrari and every product is in production for atleast a decade.Even Gallordo replacement is nowhere in sight after nearly 8 years in production.
