Volkswagen has announced a revision in prices of its Vento. The German automaker plans to increase the prices of he diesel variants by 2.2%. The petrol variants will remain untouched and the price hike will be effective come July 1, 2011. However, any buyer who books the car in June will not be subjected to the increased price. The company is also offering a reduced interest rate of 6.99% on the top of the line petrol model.
“The Vento diesel has been well accepted in the market since its launch in September 2010. Its quality, build and drivability have won the Vento many accolades. We want to continue maintaining the same standard and quality for our customers; however we have seen no relent in the input costs over several months now which has forced us to increase the cost of the Vento. On the other hand we are fully aware that customers who prefer the petrol variants are already faced with the burden of increased fuel costs and therefore we have decided to continue absorbing the additional costs for our petrol variants,” Mr. Neeraj Garg, Member of Board & Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said.
