Volkswagen hikes Polo and Vento prices, makes front airbags standard for Polo
Volkswagen India has hiked prices of its Polo and Vento models by 2.7 per cent. The price rise by Volkswagen is aimed to mitigate the increased input costs and fluctuations in exchange rates. The good news though is that the Polo will now get front dual airbags as standard fitment in all variants.
Apart from airbags, anti lock braking system (ABS) is also a standard offering on the 'Comfortline' trim version of the Polo.
The rise in Polo and Vento prices translate into a rise of about Rs 22,700 and Rs 26,800 for the Vento. This hike will be effective from February 1, 2014.
Volkswagen group sales India (passenger cars) MD Arvind Saxena said, "We are proud to be leading the cause of driver safety, and we believe the introduction of airbags as standard fitment across all variants of the Polo is a major step forward in the context of safety."
"Input costs have steadily increased over the last few months, and exchange rate movements have not been favourable. We have tried our best to absorb some of these, but in order to be able to continue to offer best-in-class quality and technology to our customers, we have now announced a 2.7% hike in our car prices."
