For Polo Trendline & Comfortline, say all of its variants now comes with Driver & Passenger Airbag as standard feature, coupled with 2.7% increase in its price.

While in addition to above, Polo Comfortline variant also gets ABS(Antilock braking system) as standard feature, also coupled with 2.7% price increase. With recent addition of ABS, Polo CL also becomes almost fully-loaded variant as almost an year earlier VW has loaded it with features like Rear wash-wipe, front fog lamps, foldable desmodronic remote key with keyless entry, 15 inch steel wheels with wheel covers plus few other features, making it a tremendous value for money.

A source article says,

Volkswagen has announced that it will raise the prices of its Polo premium hatchback and Vento sedan by as much as 2.7 percent effective from February 1, 2014. The carmaker has cited rising cost of inputs and the weak rupee as reasons for this price hike.

The company also said that it will now offer airbags for the driver and front passenger as standard equipment on the Volkswagen Polo hatchback. In addition, the VW Polo Comfortline trim will come with anti-lock brakes as standard fitment.

Arvind Saxena, managing director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Volkswagen Group Sales India Pvt. Ltd, said, “We are proud to be leading the cause of driver safety, and we believe the introduction of airbags as standard fitment across all variants of the Polo is a major step forward in the context of safety. Once again, this step underlines our commitment to producing better cars – and better-equipped cars – for the discerning Indian consumer. Input costs have steadily increased over the last few months, and exchange rate movements have not been favourable.

We have tried our best to absorb some of these, but in order to be able to continue to offer best-in-class quality and technology to our customers, we have now announced a 2.7 percent hike in our car prices.”
