Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

VW South Africa has introduced an exclusive variant of the entry-level best selling VW Polo Vivo in the country. Dubbed as the VW Polo Vivo Xpress, it targets the commercial segment and people looking for a small, half ton delivery vehicle.

It gets steel wheels, remote central locking with alarm, air conditioner, ABS, 15 mm raised suspension, load partitioning between driver and cargo, and hard wood flooring in the loading area.

Customers can also opt for more premium features such as cruise control, CD/Radio, 14-inch alloy wheels and rough road package (front underbody guard and heavy duty shocks).
