Volkswagen India has launched limited-run models of the Polo TSI and Vento TSI in a bid to push sales. The Volkswagen Polo TSI Edition is priced at Rs 7.89 lakh, while the VW Vento TSI Edition costs Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). Bookings for both models can be made on Volkswagen India's website.
As the name implies, the hatchback and midsize sedan are powered by the BS6-compliant 1.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine that makes 110hp and 175Nm of peak torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard on both models, and there’s no automatic option. As we’ve reported earlier, the Polo 1.0 TSI has an ARAI-rated mileage of 18.24kpl in manual form. We’ve now found out that when mated to the 6-speed manual gearbox, the BS6 Vento TSI has an ARAI-rated figure of 17.69kpl.
The limited-edition Polo TSI and Vento TSI are based on their respective, top-of-the-line Highline Plus variants, and so they share the same level of equipment. The Polo TSI Edition, however, undercuts the Polo Highline Plus MT by Rs 13,000, while the Vento TSI Edition is priced a whopping Rs 1 lakh lower than the Vento Highline Plus MT.
In addition to the standard safety kit and features (click here for the Polo Highline Plus feature list), these limited-edition models get decals and stickers on the doors, a TSI badge on the lower part of the passenger doors, black outside mirrors, a contrast black roof, and a glossy black rear spoiler.
