VW spy fest: 5 Vento 2 Polo and 1 Rapid spied testing new 1.5l diesel?
A fleet of 8 Volkswagen Group cars were spotted testing by avid RushLane reader Nitha Bhatt. It is very interesting to see so many cars being tested together. Among, there are 5 VW Vento sedans, 2 VW Polo hatchbacks and 1 Skoda Rapid sedan; one of Ventos’ is Left Hand Drive (LHD) export configuration.
Looks like thats what is going on here. Volkswagen could be testing their 1.5 TDI in all these cars together, which means another reshuffling is on their cards. Question remains, will Volkswagen / Skoda pass on excise duty benefits (by way of plonking smaller capacity engine) to customers? Will new 1.5 higher tune diesel engine come with GT badging? Should we expect the half brother sedans to launch before or during Diwali festive season?
