The Polo Pace is based on the Comfortline variant, is only available with the new 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, 76PS/95Nm MPI petrol engine and is priced at Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom India). For roughly Rs 11,700 less than the standard Comfortline variant, the Polo Pace gets 15-inch ‘Razor’ diamond-cut alloy wheels – and that’s it.
The Vento Sport gets more features, but Volkswagen has not confirmed the prices of the five variants it will be offered in. Available with both the 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder, 105PS/174Nm TSI engine paired to a manual gearbox and the 1.5-litre, 4-cyinder, 110PS/250Nm TDI engine paired to either a manual or a DSG gearbox, the Vento Sport gets more comprehensive cosmetic updates as compared to the Polo Pace.
Updates on the Vento Sport include a whole new colour – ‘Flash Red’ – along with a gloss-black roof, faux carbon-fibre trim on the ORVM covers, gloss-black lip-spoiler, chrome fender badge with ‘Sport’ lettering, side-skirts and 16-inch ‘Portago’ alloy wheels.
Expect more such limited edition cars from Volkswagen India till they figure out their future plans for the country. The company has postponed plans to prepare their plant at Chakan to assemble cars based on the MQB platform, which also postpones plans to launch the new Polo and T-Roc in the country for the foreseeable future.
Recommended Variant : Polo 1.2 L Highline
