Volkswagen launches the face lift for both the Polo and the Vento in the Indian market.
Some years ago, the German car manufacturer, took the Indian market by a storm with the introduction of their hatchback the Polo and their Sedan- the Vento. After their launch, the Polo and the Vento haven't received many changes cosmetically, but we have seen som mechanical changes under the hood. With this, Volkswagen has now rolled out the facelift for both the Polo and the Vento. This updated version of the hot hatch and the sedan are loaded with some modern tech and features and it aims to bring some freshness to their ageing models.
Coming to the price tag, Volkswagen has launched the facelift of the Polo at Rs 5 82 lakh (Ex-Showroom, India) to RS 9.88 lakh (Ex-Showroom, India). On the other hand, the German manufacturer will now retail the facelift of the Vento starting from RS 8.76 lakh (Ex-Showroom, India). Detailed price tags as per the models of the Polo and Vento have been mentioned at the end of the article.*
Let's have a look at the updates offered by Volkswagen for the new Polo and the Vento, shall we? Both the cars now come equipped with a honeycomb-mesh grille at the front and it also gets new design front bumper. At the rear, both the hatchback and the sedan gets a pair of new tail lights which are similar to the ones that are seen on the Volkswagen Polo GTI hot-hatch. In addition to this, the new Polo and the new Vento look sportier than their predecessors. The higher-spec models of the Polo and the Vento is offered with a gunmetal-finish on the alloy wheels and they also now come with a new design, thus making it stand out from their trim levels.
As we mentioned about modern technology, Volkswagen has loaded both cars with "Volkswagen Connect" i.e a connectivity suite. So what exactly is Volkswagen Connect, you ask? It is a dongle base feature which can be used in different Volkswagen cars, it allows us to give data about fuel cost monitoring, location sharing, driver behaviour, statistic tracking, trip tracking, etc. But this feature will be available on the Highline trim and models above it.
In terms of the safety kit, all the models of the new Polo and the New Vento will be equipped with standard safety features such as front dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, seat-belt reminder system, speed alert system and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
Let's have a look at the most interesting part, the powerhouse of these cars. The Polo will be powered with the similar 1.0 litre naturally aspirated petrol mill that churns out 76 horsepower and the oil burner option will also remain the same, a 1.5-litre diesel unit producing 90 horsepower. On the other hand, the Polo GT variants will be powered by the same BS-IV compliant 1.3 litres, turbocharged petrol engine that generates 105 horsepower, whereas it will also get the 1.5-litre oil burner that generates 110 horsepower. Once the BS-VI engine norms come into place from 1st April 2020 both of these engines will be phased out.
Coming to the New Vento facelift, it will also be powered with the same 1.6-litre petrol engine producing 105 horsepower and 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine churning out 105 horsepower. Just like the petrol Mills, even the diesel engines will be unchanged, it will be powered by the same 1.5-litre oil burner generating 110 horsepower.
What makes the facelift of the Polo and the Be go more interesting is that the German car manufacturer is offering a new five-year standard warranty for the diesel variants. According to Volkswagen, customers will get a relief of 30% cost of ownership. With this, the new Polo will compete strongly with the Hyundai Grand i10 nios, Ford Figo, Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Honda Jazz in the Indian market. Likewise, the new Vento will also offer a tough competition to the Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Honda City.
