Volkswagen India has taken wraps off the special edition versions of the Polo premium hatchback and Vento sedan. The special edition of Polo is the Select and likewise Celeste is for Vento. Both models have been made available across all the Volkswagen dealerships in India. The special edition Polo Select will be offered only in the manual variants of the Highline trim while the Vento Celeste can be bought on both Highline manual variants and the Highline DSG trim.
To maintain exclusivity of these special editions, the German manufacturer will be rolling out only limited numbers. The Polo Select and Vento Celeste have been adorned with changes to the exterior and interior to justify the ‘special edition’ tag.

Looking on the outside, the exterior modifications are clearly visible with the body side moulding black in colour, Outside Rear View Mirror covers receiving carbon finish alongside a black roof foil substantiating the appearance of the Polo Select and Vento Celeste.

Volkswagen wasn’t content with the exterior styling updates as the interiors have come featured with noticeable changes as well. The centre console was given carbon finish and thus accentuating the premium appeal of the dashboards that are scratch resistant. The Vento Celeste is being offered with touchscreen infotainment system that has Blaupunkt radio with navigation function besides the already existing audio provision and Bluetooth connectivity.
