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.

Volkswagen Polo, Vento: engine and gearbox

The Volkswagen Polo is available with two petrol engine options. The base engine is a 76hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder MPI engine that’s mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox only. This engine is only available in the entry-level Trendline and Comfortline trims.

The other engine option is a 110hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder TSI turbo-petrol engine that can be had with either a 6-speed manual or torque converter automatic gearbox. The Vento is available only with this TSI engine and shares the same gearbox options as the Polo.

Volkswagen: upcoming products in India

Volkswagen is currently gearing up for the launch of the Taigun midsize SUV, which is set to take place on September 23. The company will also re-introduce the 5-seat Tiguan in its facelifted avatar, sometime in the upcoming festive period. Following that, there will be an all-new sedan replacing the ageing Vento based on the same platform in 2022.
