Volkswagen has announced that the sturdy Polo Sedan design unveiled in Russia last week will be used for the Indian market and will be called the Volkswagen Vento.

Essentially the same as a Polo sedan, the wheelbase has been extended by 50mm over a regular Polo hatch to accommodate better legroom. The car will be produced in VW’s plant in Chakan, Pune. The sedan will get the same 1.6-litre engine seen in the Russian version which produces 105 PS. This will be mated to a 5-speed manual or an automatic transmission depending on the budget. Prices are expected to be anything from 7 to 9 lakhs.

Look after the jump for a more comprehensive picture gallery that has just been released compared to the one shown at the Russian unveiled. This gallery now has interior photos, which show a largely unchanged interior compared to the Polo Sedan.
