VW introduces Volkswagen Connect feature on the Polo, Ameo and Vento. The Vento gets front side airbags on the top-end Highline Plus variant.
Volkswagen India has introduced a new connected car solution of sorts with a new feature called Volkswagen Connect. A device is connected to the car’s on-board diagnostics port. Users can then download The Connect App from Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store and then connect their smartphone to the device via Bluetooth. The app then displays various information about the vehicle trip tracking, monitor fuel costs, driver behaviour, location sharing, book service appointments and help with SOS calls.
Speaking on the occasion, Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars, said, “Volkswagen is transforming into a mobility provider with the aim to offer fully connected vehicle fleets. In India, with Volkswagen Connect and the recently launched ‘Digital Workplace’ experience we aim to completely digitalize the customer experience right from pre to post-purchase experiences. With Volkswagen Connect, customers are empowered to manage a host of services such as driving behaviour analysis, trip tracking, fuel cost monitoring, and other convenient features available on their fingertips.
Along with the introduction of the new Volkswagen Connect system, VW India has introduced a new Lapiz Blue paint shade for the Polo. More importantly though, the car maker has equipped the top-end Highline Plus variant of its Vento mid-size sedan with front side airbags in addition to the front airbags of the car.
“At Volkswagen, customers have been at the centre of our business. Adding to the sportiness of our popular carlines, the new enhanced features along with dual front-side airbag on the Vento makes for an attractive value proposition for our discerning customers. With such unique offerings, it is our endeavour to offer world-class services to all our customers,” said, Steffen Knapp.
