Volkswagen Polo now offered with dual airbags as standard equipment

Volkswagen Polo now offered with dual airbags as standard equipment

Hatchbacks are not really the safest cars of the lot but Volkswagen has just made an effort to change the perception. The brand, in fact, has made its premium small car – the Polo, a lot safer by offering dual front airbags as part of standard equipment on all variants.

Further enhancing the safety aspect of the model, Volkswagen is also offering ABS as standard equipment on the Comfortline variant.

It’s not all good news though as Volkswagen has officially announced a 2.7 per cent price hike on all variants of the Polo and Vento. In a move to partially offset increased inputs costs and changes in the exchange rate, the carmaker will raise the prices by up to Rs 22,700 and Rs 26,800 for the Polo and the Vento respectively. The revised prices will be effective from 1st February 2014.

Volkswagen Vento

Commenting on new safety features in the Polo, and on the price hike for the Volkswagen Polo and Vento, Arvind Saxena, Managing Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd said, “We are proud to be leading the cause of driver safety, and we believe the introduction of airbags as standard fitment across all variants of the Polo is a major step forward in the context of safety. Once again, this step underlines our commitment to producing better cars – and better-equipped cars – for the discerning Indian consumer.”

“Input costs have steadily increased over the last few months, and exchange rate movements have not been favourable. We have tried our best to absorb some of these, but in order to be able to continue to offer best-in-class quality and technology to our customers, we have now announced a 2.7% hike in our car prices.”
