Volkswagen Vento & Polo (Matt Edition)
Exterior & Design
Since it is a special edition version let’s start with the updates. To begin with, both the cars are now available with a carbon steel grey matte shade with some of the panels such as wing mirrors and door handles finished in gloss black. The picture above also confirms that the alloy wheels will be featuring a silver colour scheme.
The carmaker has even tried to retain the chrome panels on the grille. Interestingly, features such as rain-sensing wipers and sportier headlamps are also there as a part of the standard equipment.
No changes have been made on the inside. Therefore, a touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, rear parking camera and similar features will be there as standard.
Powering the new range of Polo and Vento is the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that is truly capable of producing a decent 110PS of power with a peak torque of 175Nm. For transmission duties, Volkswagen has decided to offer a sole 6-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox for the Matt Edition.

Volkswagen has priced the new Vento Matt Edition at Rs.11.91 Lakhs and goes all the way up till Rs.13.34 Lakhs while the similar edition of Polo will cost you somewhere around Rs.9.99 Lakhs (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
