Volkswagen Launches Polo, Ameo And Vento Cup Edition


VW hopes to ride the World Cup fever with the three new Cup Edition models

  • The Cup Edition cars are based on the Comfortline petrol variant.
  • Changes include dual-tone alloy wheels, ‘Cup Edition’ badging and body graphics.
  • Interior changes limited to new seat covers.

Volkswagen has launched a special edition variant of the Polo, Ameo and Vento called the Cup Edition. The German carmaker hopes to ride the 2019 Cricket World Cup fever which is set to sweep the nation soon. The Cup Edition versions of the three cars are based on the Comfortline petrol variants.

 

Steffen Knapp, the director of Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said, “In India, cricket is not merely a sport, but a religion. It is the equivalent of soccer in Germany. World over, for Volkswagen, sport has played an integral part of our business. It not only brings in unity across the country but also displays passion, inspiration and excitement. Keeping this spirit in mind, we have launched the special Cup edition that showcases true sportsman spirit through its performance, power and precision across our product portfolio. We aim to reinstate the cheer and fun-to-drive experience among our customers this sports season.”

Here’s a table comparing the prices of the Cup Edition with the regular Comfortline variant:

The Cup Edition cars feature cosmetic additions to stand out from the regular Comfortline variant, and that’s about it.
