The special editions are dubbed as the Polo Select and Vento Celeste. These are based on the highline DSG variants of the VW cars and get some additional features. Both the cars get black side body moulding, a carbon finish for the ORVMs and a black vinyl roof. While the Polo select gets a chrome embellishment on the tail gate, the Vento Celeste features a trunk lip spoiler. The cabin of the cars boast of a carbon finish centre console, detachable window blinds and textile mats. The Polo additionally gets new seat covers with the VW logo and four scuff plates. The Vento, on the other hand, gets a Blaupunkt touchscreen infotainment system with navigation.
There are no mechanical changes and the powertrain remains the same for both the cars. Volkswagen hasn't mentioned a particular price for these variants, but says that these variants will be limited in number. Dealers in Mumbai are offering this kit as per the customer's requirement. One can pick and select required equipment from this kit ranging from Rs 16,000 to Rs 45,000.
These small tweaks do enhance the appeal of the car and many customers have already opted for these kits earlier as after-market accessories. If you are planning to buy a Polo or a Vento soon, do have a look at these variants. However, we would also suggest to wait for a while and also consider the upcoming compact sedan from Volkswagen - the Ameo. The car is exclusively designed for the Indian market and is expected to be launched this month. Stay tuned to CarWale to read our first drive of the Ameo in a couple of days.
