Volkswagen, it seems has heard our call. It's gone ahead and given the Vento and Polo another lease of life as it grapples with a slowdown in sales in a bid to reverse the trend.

The Polo and Vento now get new smoked out headlamps and newly designed alloys for the Highline version and these make up the changes on the outside. On the inside, the changes are rather remarkable.

It's the Polo that has gotten the lion's share of changes. These include a leather-wrapped steering, gear knob and handbrake lever, a new music system with USB connectivity as well as an optional bluetooth, speed-sensing volume control for the stereo and steering-mounted audio controls.

For the Vento, the changes include an optional bluetooth stereo system, navigation as well reverse parking camera. These changes have been made for the Highline version on both cars.

All of this has come about with a correction in the price tag. The Polo Highline diesel is now priced Rs 42,000 lower at Rs 6.94 lakh while the Vento Highline diesel is pegged at Rs 9.89 lakh, Rs 31,000 lower. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi.

This brings the price within spitting distance of the most expensive Skoda Rapid diesel, priced at Rs 9.8 lakh, ex-Delhi while increasing the gap on the Skoda Fabia Elegance 1.2 TDI that retails for Rs 7.44 lakh.
