    Published On Sep 18, 2021 09:00:00 AM



    Volkswagen has also stopped accepting bookings for select variants of the Polo and Vento.

    Volkswagen’s Polo and Vento models are currently in high demand, commanding a waiting period of up to five months across the country. However, this is subject to only certain variants of both models. 

    • Five Polo variants have a waiting period
    • Bookings closed for select Polo and Vento variants
    • Taigun midsize SUV to launch on September 23

    Volkswagen Polo, Vento waiting periods

    Presently, the Volkswagen Polo Trendline MPI, Comfortline TSI MT, Highline Plus TSI MT, Highline Plus TSI AT and the GT TSI AT variants are all commanding a waiting period of up to 5 months. Similarly, for the Vento, the Highline TSI MT variant has a five-month waiting period.

    Furthermore, Volkswagen dealerships have also stopped accepting bookings for the Polo Comfortline MPI and Comfortline TSI AT variants and the Vento Comfortline TSI MT and Highline Plus TSI MT. It’s likely that the manufacturer has a huge backlog of orders for these aforementioned variants and has hence instructed its dealers to stop bookings. However, it’s expected that the order books will be reopened for these variants once the backlog is cleared.
