Volkswagen Vento goes on sale in Philippines; named ‘Polo Notch’

Volkswagen has introduced its Vento sedan as the ‘Polo Notch’ in Philippines market. This is the third car from the German autoamker three months after it officially entered the Philippine motoring industry, with its official distributor, Automobile Central Enterprise, Inc. (ACEI). The Polo Notch is exported from India and is being made in VW’s Chakan plant at Pune.


John Philip Orbeta, President, ACEI said, “Volkswagen has always been known as the People's Car, and now with the introduction of the Polo Notch, the possibilities of owning a fine German car with the latest in technological advancements become more attainable for the Filipino."


As for now, the C-segment sedan is available only in the Highline variant with a 1.6-liter TDI diesel engine producing 104bhp and 250 Nm of torque powered by a five-speed manual gearbox. The EuroNCAP five-star rated car features ABS, dual-front airbags along with 15-inch alloy wheels, a single CD player and a manually adjustable A/C unit.

Priced at 950,000 Philippine Pesos (Rs 13.2 lakhs), the Vento is currently the cheapest German saloon in the Philippine market and goes up against the likes of Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus and Mazda 3.
