I want one, only for the touchscreen. Don't really like the idea of seeing written IPl all over the car.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

Good to see VW trying its level best to merge with india's happening. But honestly i am not sure how many will be the taker for this so called Limited Edition.
As for the cricket kit, i was informed by a Hyundai guy that even they are offering it with the purchase of i10.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

I think they just came up with this model just to add more bells and whistles instead of catching up with with IPL fans, guess they don't want to go the Fiesta way as Vento is fairly new car.
But the IPL logo at the boot looks kind of cheap.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

IPL edition? Why would I want a car that has advertisements all over it and at a premium price. If India wins this World cup and then there is a India's World cup edition, I would go for it.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

For a premium of Rs.25,000, doesn’t sounds as bad deal though but it’s a mere attempt from Volkswagen to traditionally spice up the Vento range, or is that the base 1.6 Petrol isn’t selling much? I’m anyways not a fan of cricket and would never like to see IPL logos across my car. Like many others, the most attractive item I find is the new ICE.

Most likely, they must be offering it on the dealership level itself.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

Let IPL go to hell I think nobody here is interested in this concept like me.
That’s just more or less about the different opinions, Maximas. I do not dislike this version, either. But just that Volkswagen could have utilized the idea a better way rather than targeting cricket fans alone through IPL.

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

crappy idea by VW. one thing that could be done is, buy the car and get rid of all those stupid logos. that's it.
well that would make no sense..additional 25k you pay also include cost of those logos!! better is to install up that kind of highend ICE for those who like only ICE of this vento..[:)]

Re: Volkswagen Introduces Vento IPL Edition

Well i don mind having those logos in my car as i am getting a good touch screen player along with the car!


And also like 350Z said maybe to boost the sales of the 1.6 petrol base variant , most of the Vento's i see on road are Diesel highline only.
