The end of the first E-commerce sale marks the start of the festive season and the positive time after a long break. It has been tough for everyone, keeping that in mind, many carmakers are launching festive edition of a range of cars, from hatchbacks to SUVs to Sedans. That said, Volkswagen is among the first to offer the special edition cars. Let’s have a look at what all they have on offer.
The Red and White Edition
Going after the title, Volkswagen is offering the new festive edition only in the hatch polo and the sedan Vento. Both the cars, from the Volkswagen group get a new paint scheme which we’ll talk further in the article. First, let’s see what are the additions in the ‘Volksfest’.
- The roof is of the contrasting colour.
- ORVMs get a different paint scheme, same as of the roof.
- Both the cars get a spoiler at the rear.
- New edition specific decals sum up the addition in both the cars.
Limited Polo and Vento have 3 colour options to choose from, depending upon the model- flash red, sunset red, and candy white.
Powertrain and Transmission
Like the conventional Polo and Vento, the new edition cars come with the same enthusiastic 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine.
This gem motor generates 110ps of max power and 175Nm of peak torque. The engine is more than enough to propel the hatch from 0-100 in under 10 seconds and the sedan in just over 10 seconds.
Though conventional cars come with both manual and automatic transmission, the limited edition only gets a torque converter automatic transmission.
Prices and Rivals
The ‘Volksfest’ edition of Vento and Polo is available in the top-end trims Highline-Plus for the Polo and Highline for the sedan. The cars the priced at ₹9,19,500 and ₹11,49,000 respectively, both being about ₹70,000 cheaper than their traditional variant.
That said, both the cars will have a less impact on your wallet when compared to the non-limited edition cars as these are a bit cheaper. Rivals? Well, it is the same old story and there are no additions in those terms.
