Volkswagen, one of the largest car manufacturers on the planet, has announced the introduction of ABS and airbags for both front occupants as primary safety features as standard fitment for all variants of the Polo hatchback and Vento sedan. Cars with the new standard fitments are available on sale in all Volkswagen dealerships across India.
The added safety feature of ABS to the Polo and Vento will set new benchmarks in safety by adopting global standards for all Volkswagen products in India.
