Volkswagen Vento first drive : Winds of Change

The Polo hatchback, launched earlier this year, was Volkswagen’s first serious foray into the Indian market and saw a lot of investment being brought in by this very serious German carmaker to set up a state of the art manufacturing facility at Chakan in Maharashtra. But their seriousness to succeed in the Indian marketplace is even more evident now with the introduction of the Vento, which in simple words, is a Polo with a boot. They’ve engineered the Vento to be ‘best in class’ and have started with possibly their most successful platform – the Polo (apart from the Golf of course!). The Polo has sold over 11million units since 1975 and is a significant platform for VW. And this isn’t the first time the Vento name (which translates to wind in Italian) is being used for a VW car.
