Volkswagen has added some cosmetic upgrades to the Polo hatch and Vento sedan and they as a result, look refreshing. The Vento Sport gets a blacked out roof, faux carbon fibre finished side mirrors, 16-inch Portago alloys and a new red colour paint job. Other visual changes include ‘Sport’ badge on the sides and a blacked out rear spoiler. The Polo Pace, on the other hand comes with 15-inch diamond cut alloys.
The mechanicals of both the cars remain same. The Vento Sport is available in Highline and Highline Plus trims with the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel motors that come mated to manual and DSG transmissions. The Polo Pace comes only in the 1-litre petrol Comfortline trim at a starting price of Rs 6.10 lakh for the non metallic colour and Rs 6.20 lakh (ex-showroom) for the metallic finish.
On the introduction of Polo Pace and Vento Sport, Steffen Knapp, director, Volkswagen India said, “At Volkswagen, we constantly enhance our product offerings to keep up with the fast changing trends and consumer aspirations. The Polo and Vento have been amongst our best-selling carlines since its inception in the Indian market. Through continuous value additions in our product portfolio, we aim to give our customers the power of choice.”
Both the limited edition variants of the cars are available in all Volkswagen dealerships in the country at no added cost.
