Volkswagen has been suffering from income in India for a few substantial time now. VW had recently slashed the provider charges for all their merchandise in a move to boom footfall at its showrooms. However, those movements received are enough to regain their lost market percentage (which become anyway low). Talking about the Vento, income for February’19 declined 30% (YOY) to just 351 devices. This is while competitors like Verna, City, and Ciaz all offered almost ten times (every) the general sales of Vento. To counter these plummeting income numbers, VW is currently readying up facelifts of the Vento and Polo. The two vehicles were recently spotted checking out on Pune roads while each of them had been blanketed in camouflage. It is to be referred to that those aren’t the next-gen variations of the motors. The next-gen Vento and Polo are predicted to be released inside the united states of America only put up in 2020.
The facelift will ordinarily include more modern bumper designs and a few minor cosmetic modifications on the outside. The everyday Polo should get a few concepts from the Polo GTI and get a dual-tone rear bumper. Interiors may get some feature addition; however, no principal inclusions are predicted. Volkswagen possibly received’t be bringing in any mechanical modifications in those cars. Hence, powertrain options are predicted to continue as-is for both vehicles. The Polo comes with four engine options, two diesel and a pair of petrol. The ordinary 1-liter petrol delivers 75 bhp and ninety-five Nm of torque. In comparison, the overall performance targeted GT TSI variant attracts energy from a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol motor which churns out 104 bhp and 175 Nm of torque. The regular diesel Polo is powered using a 1. Five liters 89 bhp diesel engine even as the GT TDI version attracts 108 bhp and 250 Nm of torque from the same motor.
The Vento comes with three engine options, one diesel and two petrol. The diesel unit is equal to the one located on the Polo GT TDI and can be chosen with either a 5-velocity MT or a dual-snatch AT. If one needs a 7-pace twin-clutch AT option with a petrol engine, one needs to select the 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol unit, which promises 105 bhp and 175 Nm of torque. However, if one prefers an antique-school 5-speed manual gearbox with a petroleum motor, VW provides this option with a 1.6 liter 103 bhp petrol engine. Once released, the Polo will continue to compete with Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz, and the upcoming Alcatraz from Tata Motors. As Vento is worried, it’ll try and clutch some sales within the distinctly dynamic space dominated by Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, and Hyundai Verna.
