Cruise the Streets with the Limited Edition Polo Select and Vento Celeste

The German auto manufacturer, Volkswagen, in India recently added to their portfolio two Special Edition versions of the VW Polo and VW Vento, two popular models which have fared well in the market in the recent past. These Limited Edition versions are called as Polo Select and Vento Celeste. As opposed to the regular models, these new cars come with added features and some style and cosmetic updates. Volkswagen has decided to keep this as a Limited Edition version and only a limited number will be available at dealerships in the country.

Volkswagen Vento Celeste

Similar to many other car manufacturers, who also launched Limited Edition or Special Edition vehicles to their line-up of popular cars more as a move to increase sales and to keep it always in the reckoning; VW too joined the bandwagon. This tried and tested method has been going around and proven to be very popular in the automobile circuits, as it always piques customer curiosity.

Key takeaways

  • Both models are offered in the high-end variants
  • New features and style updations
  • A Limited Edition series and hence only limited numbers of cars are available
  • Same engine options

Based on the high-end variants, both the Select and Celeste are similar and comparable to the standard version. The design, platform, styling and features are quite parallel.

Tracing the exterior

The smaller vehicle of the two, the Polo comes with exterior styling which encompasses black roof wrap, carbon fire OVRM caps, black moulding of the body side, roof spoiler and trunk garnish. The Vento comes with similar features as the Polo Select although, additionally, it has a trunk lip spoiler in place of the trunk garnish.
