Volkswagen India announces limited Polo and Vento Matt Edition models

Volkswagen India has launched another special model of the fifth-generation Polo; the Polo Matt Edition is based on the Polo GT, and as its name suggests, is distinguished by its striking matt grey paint finish. A sister saloon model accompanies it, the Vento Matt Edition a new version of the fifth-generation Polo-based saloon.

Powered by Volkswagen’s three-cylinder 1.0 TSI petrol engine with 108bhp mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Polo Matt Edition features 16-inch ‘Portago’ alloy wheels, unique Carbon Steel matt grey paintwork, and gloss black door handles and door mirror caps. It also gets a gloss black rear spoiler atop the tailgate.

The Vento Matt Edition meanwhile – based on the Highline or Highline Plus models – has a neat gloss black boot spoiler with the same body colour options as its Polo sibling, with the exception of the Highline-based car which wears 15-inch ‘Linas’ wheels. Inside, both the Polo and Vento Matt Edition have no upgrades over the cars on which they are based, but standard equipment is high, with a 6.5-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system featuring Bluetooth, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, automatic wipers, and a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel.

Prices for the Polo Matt Edition start at Rs 10.25 lakh (ex-showroom), the Vento Matt Edition offered at Rs 13.36 lakh for the Highline-based variant, rising to Rs 14.79 lakh for the Highline Plus model.

A set of 16-inch alloy ‘Portago’ wheels borrowed from the Indian-market Polo GT also feature.

J D Power survey ranks VW Polo as India’s highest-scoring Premium Compact vehicle

2019 Volkswagen Polo (India)

The Volkswagen Polo has been named as the highest-scoring Premium Compact car in the 2018 J D Power India Initial Quality Study (IQS). The third consecutive year the small Volkswagen has taken the top category prize, it improved its PP100 (‘problems per 100’ vehicles) score to 64, down from 69 in 2017. The lower the number of issues, the higher the overall score and ranking.

The 2018 J D Power India Initial Quality Study had 7,710 responses from owners who purchased a brand new vehicle between December 2017 and October 2018 and included 75 models from 13 different brands. The study recorded problems experienced by new vehicle owners during their first two to six months of ownership.

Over 200 problems came under scrutiny in a total of eight categories as diverse as the driving experience, engine and transmission, entertainment and navigation, heating, and seats. The Polo’s smaller Indian-only close relative, the Ameo (a shortened fifth-generation Polo saloon) came second in the Entry Midsize category. The Ameo improved its score, from 106 PP100 in 2017 to 85 in 2018.

‘Most sucessful models’

Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars said: ‘Polo has been one of our most successful models in India which has maintained its premium-ness by witnessing more than 80 per cent first-time buyers, and we are glad to be receiving a hat-trick. Along with this, our made-for-India Ameo ranks second in the Entry Midsize segment that truly delivers our continued commitment of offering a value for money proposition to our customers.’

Volkswagen India replaces Polo 1.2 with Polo 1.0: new Polo GTI for India?

2018 Volkswagen Polo (India)

Volkswagen India has replaced the petrol-powered Polo 1.2 with a new version packing a 1.0 engine. The new Polo 1.0 produces almost identical power to the now discontinued 1.2-litre engine – 75bhp as opposed to 74bhp – but is slightly down on torque (1.2: 81lb ft / 110Nm at 3,750rpm, 1.0: 70lb ft / 95Nm at 3,000-4,300rpm). As before, a five-speed manual gearbox is standard.

The new three-cylinder Polo 1.0-litre MPI is between 14kg to 24kg lighter than the outgoing 1.2-litre car dependent on specification. Volkswagen India quotes official fuel economy of 18.78km/l, an improvement of 2.31km/l over the 1.2. Indian Autos Blog also reports that the new multi-point-injected 1.0 engine is likely to power the new MQB platform-based sixth-generation Polo when it arrives in India, around 2020.

New Polo GTI considered for India
Reports are also circulating that the new Polo GTI is also being considered for India. The fifth-generation Polo GTI is already sold in the country, but with a slightly altered specification with smaller wheels than the now-discontinued European versions. If the sixth-generation car made it to India, it would appear as a ‘CBU’ (Completely Built Up car) and sold in limited numbers, as seen with the current car, and although the first 99 units sold as fast as the GTI accelerates, the second batch needed to be discontinued to shift.

Indian Autos Blog reports that a price over INR 25 lakhs would have to be stomached, which would put the MQB-A0-based Polo GTI perilously close to the Mini Cooper S. For comparison, the much larger Skoda Octavia RS can be had for around INR 26 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The new Polo has yet to arrive in India, as complexities with the MQB platform make it expensive to produce locally, although Volkswagen India is said to be working on a budget version of the chassis module, codenamed ‘MQB A0 IN’ to reduce costs.

2018 Volkswagen Polo Pace (India)

Limited edition Polo Pace launched
In the meantime, Volkswagen India has also announced a new limited edition version called the Pace, based on the current Indian-market fifth-generation Polo. Taking the INR 6,10,700 to INR 6,20,700 (ex-showroom Delhi) Polo Comfortline as a starting point, the Pace gets 15-inch ‘Razor’ alloy wheels, dual-beam headlamps and airbags as standard. Powered by either the new 1.0-litre MPI engine with 75bhp or an 89bhp 1.5-litre TDI, the special Polo Pace model also features ambient interior lighting, electric windows, and front fog lamps.
