However, it has enough ground clearance of 179 mm that enables it to glide over some regular hurdles one might face in day-to-day scenarios. Also, VW has ensured that the preferences and needs of the Indian customers are met for which they localised and developed this platform specifically for our market. That has lent the sedan some pretty unique capabilities.
