Volkswagen has launched Connect Editions of the Polo, Ameo and the Vento. The cars get Volkswagen Connect and other features and will be available to customers at no additional cost.
Prices for the Polo, Ameo and Vento range from Rs. 5.55-9.39 lakh, Rs. 5.65-9.99 lakh and Rs. 8.38-14.02 lakh respectively.
Volkswagen Connect uses a data dongle that plugs into the on-board diagnostics port (OBD) of the vehicle.
It allows users to access features like trip tracking, fuel cost monitor, driving behaviour monitor, location sharing, SOS call and automatic service appointment through a smartphone app.
The Connect app is available on Android and iOS platforms.
The Connect Edition cars also get exterior updates which include 16-inch alloy wheels finished in grey, ORVMs with black carbon finish, glossy roof and side foil and chrome 'Connect' badges. Inside, the cars get leatherette seat covers and aluminium pedals.
Additionally, Volkswagen has made some changes to the standard Polo, Ameo and Vento as well. The cars get Moon stone coloured radio surround trim, rear USB charging port and glove box light.
The Polo gets leatherette seat fabrics, while the Polo GT comes with chequered seat upholstery. The Vento comes with dual front side airbags and body coloured rear spoiler. The Highline variant also comes with 15-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. All cars are available in a Lapiz Blue exterior colour option.
Engine options remain unchanged.
The Polo is offered with a 75 BHP 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol and an 89 BHP 1.5-litre diesel.
The Ameo comes with the same 1.0-litre petrol engine as the Polo and a 109 BHP 1.5-litre diesel engine.
The Vento is offered with a 104 BHP 1.6-litre petrol, 104 BHP 1.2-litre turbo petrol and a 109 BHP 1.5-litre diesel engine option.
Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG.
Would just say that never have any issues with the TSI, super light steering which creates an easy drive (some might say too easy) the efficiency was beyond what I expected, top speed was over than what was stated, not a fast car but it's no snail if you get me.. I would have to choose a turbo engine over NA in most scenarios, only have experience with the previous vivo but I was not impressed at all, at least with the TSI I was happily surprised, I went for the tsi over a golf 6 1.4 tsi with some mileage back in 2016 after a test drive, the newer car just felt better to me
