Spoof: Maruti Suzuki challenges VW Vento IPL Edition
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
If you are a ‘Cricket-and-Car enthusiast’ and you have just read our first look on VW Vento IPL edition model, you might think that the choice of car is quite obvious for you. Well, as it turns out, you are also spoiled for choice.
When Maruti boffins realized that VW is encroaching on their ‘Special Edition’ strategy, they got very angry. And in this anger and hatred, they decided to challenge the VW Vento IPL edition. Their contender for the market – Ritz World Cup Edition (aha VW you never saw this one coming did you?)
Where the Vento only provides you with 2 stickers on the exterior, the Ritz is entirely wrapped in cricket mania. Plus, the Vento only provides you with one cricket bat and one ball. On the other hand, the Ritz comes with 2 bats, a set of pads and a helmet too! The helmet has a dual purpose – it can also be used to protect you from pedestrian abuse.
Adding to that, the Vento doesn’t come with alloys, where as the Ritz comes white alloys with grippy tires 😉
So which one would you like to buy? VW Vento IPL Edition OR Maruti Suzuki Ritz World Cup edition
