VW has been known to update their products quite a few times in a year. They keep adding more and more features silently, without making much fuss. The latest update last month saw both the Polo and the Vento (top of the line trim) get the new 6.5″ touch screen system with Apple Car Play, something that makes it more convenient. The company also has plans to launch a new variant of the Vento, the Vento ALLSTAR.
What is new?
It will be based on the Comfortline model, instead of the top-spec Highline model. It will be on offer with both petrol and diesel engine options and will also be offered in the ALLSTAR limited new blue shade. Other features include the following:
- New alloy wheel pattern (Linas)
- Sportier aluminium pedals
- ALLSTAR badging on the scuff plate
- New interior colour combination of grey and black.
- Re-upholstered seats (Pentastripe fabric)
- Leather wrapped handbrake lever
The new edition will be launched to celebrate the company’s 10th year anniversary in the Indian market. The company just completed 10 years and will hold their Volksfest during the months of September and October, like they did last year. Expect large number of discounts and other gifts when buying a VW in the above mentioned time frame.
The Vento got a larger upgrade earlier in the year, when the new Highline plus model was added. The model got 16″ rims, new LED headlamps with LED DRLs and a new rear view camera as well.
Last year, VW introduced the ALLSTAR version of the Polo with similar updates. The main highlight of the Polo though was the addition of the front arm rest and the rear AC vent, which is a part of the same unit.
