Targeted mainly for the luxury segment in the Indian market.Plan to capture bigger market through the VW Polo and Vento.

Page 21: Volkswagen POLO India


Caters mainly to luxury segment. Higher price range – except Skoda Fabia.

Lack of brand awareness among Indian consumers.

Lack of aggressive marketing in earlier phases.

In the 4 door mid-luxury segment - Market leader Honda City.


Introduced in 2010 Beaten the Honda City as the number 1 selling car in that

segment The Vento’s success Honda lagging VW bringing the right product to the market, namely a

diesel engine. With petrol prices only going up VW was right to tap into the

Indian psyche of affordability.

Volkswagen India has smartly priced this car.

Manual petrol version 2 variants, either base or top which has a huge price gap of around one lakhs INR. Base model (Trendline) lacks many features and at this price there are many other options

available in the market which offer more features and are more refined and powerful in comparison to it.

Petrol version of Vento is capable to beat City in any department.

Diesel Version

It’s the diesel version which sets the stage on fire. At this price what you get is : highly refined powerful fuel efficient car German engineering at its best. This car is completely value for money and it looks smart enough to turn heads

Volkswagen - Indian market in 2010. Polo, a premium hatchback Looks, comfort and performance. Built quality as well. It mainly competes with the Maruti Swift, Hyundai

i10, Fiat Punto etc. Polo has been a winner for Volkswagen and is

reportedly the most demanded Volkswagen model in the Indian market.

Page 28: Volkswagen POLO India

There are 6 variants. 3 premium segments Trendline, Comfortline and Highline.

4.3-6.5 lakhs -petrol models

5.5-7.4 lakhs -diesel models.

The German build and brand name has definitely given Polo an advantage in its segment together with the features it offers. 

Page 29: Volkswagen POLO India
Page 30: Volkswagen POLO India
Page 31: Volkswagen POLO India

The base model of Polo starts under five lakh rupees

Quite competitively placed but it offers fewer features than its rivals.

Surely a head turner, its capable enough to grab attention in public. This is the only USP of this car.

Relatively high price of its 1.6 version and diesel versions – it’s not a value for money car.

It is not as powerful as other hatchbacks in its class.

At this price what you get is a car from German makers which is strongly built and looks sophisticated.

There is another issue; there is huge gap in prices of these three variants from each other. It gives advantage to other cars to fit into these gaps.

Looking at its quality, fresh look and superior German engineering, this car should be able to get a good number of buyers, especially youth.
