After a stupendous response towards the Polo and the Vento from customers last year, it was time to put these cars to review again with the backdrop of performance, safety, driving pleasure and off course acceptance in the market.
The Volkswagen Polo and the Vento reigned with 12 awards including the most coveted title of Car of the Year on 3 occasions.
Commenting on this huge recognition Mr. Neeraj Garg, Member of Board and Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars said “We are truly delighted with this recognition by the jury members of these prestigious media houses. The Polo and the Vento are our brand pillars in India and we are truly overwhelmed by the response received towards both these cars. The awards are pure testimony of this.”
Volkswagen has already sold 27,946 units of the Polo and the Vento until December 2010.
