Volkswagen Polo And Vento Waiting Period Reach 5 Months; Bookings On Some Variants Stopped

Volkswagen Polo and Vento waiting period reach 5 months, as the demand for both models increased recently.

However, not all variants command a waiting period of up to five months, only certain variants have such long waiting periods.

For Volkswagen Polo, variants like Trendline MPI, Comfortline TSI MT, Highline Plus TSI MT, Highline Plus TSI AT and the GT TSI AT command waiting period up to five months.

However, for Volkswagen Vento, only the Highline TSI MT has a five-month waiting period. Since the demand for certain models and variants are higher than production capacity, Volkswagen has decided to close the bookings on certain models and variants.

According to sources, Volkswagen dealers have stopped accepting bookings for the Volkswagen Polo Comfortline MPI, Volkswagen Polo Comfortline TSI AT, Volkswagen Vento Comfortline TSI MT, and Volkswagen Vento Highline Plus TSI MT.

However, Volkswagen dealerships will soon start accepting the bookings for the aforementioned models and variants as the company clears its backlogs on these orders.

Currently, Volkswagen Polo comes with two choices of engines with identical displacement. The frugal one is a 1.0-litre MPI petrol engine with 75Bhp and 95Nm of torque, then there is the 1.0-litre TSI engine with 110Bhp and 175Nm of torque.

The 1.0-litre MPI engine is mated at a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, however, the more powerful TSI motor comes mated to a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions.

The Volkswagen Polo range in India starts from Rs 6.27 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base variant and goes all the way up to Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom) for the GT variant.

On the other hand, the Volkswagen Vento comes with only one engine choice. The 1.0-litre TSI motor with 110Bhp and 175Nm of torque.

Transmission choices on the Volkswagen Vento include a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Prices for the Volkswagen Vento range starts from Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

At present Volkswagen's product portfolio consists of six models, Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Vento, Volkswagen Taigun, Volkswagen T-Roc, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.

On this product portfolio, Volkswagen is gearing up for the launch of the Taigun. A midsize SUV that will rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Tata Harrier, MG Hector, Skoda Kushaq and a few more.

According to Volkswagen, the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun has already received 10,000+ pre-bookings, and the brand is aiming to sell around 6,000 units every month.

Apart from this, Volkswagen is also preparing for the launch of the Virtus sedan that is expected to replace the Volkswagen Vento next year. The upcoming Volkswagen Virtus sedan will be based on the Volkswagen MQB-A0 platform, and it will be slightly larger than the outgoing version of the Volkswagen Vento.

We expect Volkswagen Virtus to make use of the identical powertrain setup as the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun SUV in India.
