Hello,

Its Fully Synthetic Oil - which is recommended in all VW Range Cars - Polo, Vento, Jetta, Passat.

VW Dealer put in Castrol Magnatec Professional 5w/40 Engine Oil - and is same what is recommended by the manufacturer too
Engine Oil Capacity is around 4.4 Lit (approx) - check Owner Manual for Exact Capacity.

Refer Writeup on Castrol Magnatec Professional
Castrol Magnatec Professional B4 5W-40 is a full synthetic SAE 5W-40 multigrade engine oil, specifically engineered for multivalve, high speed engine technology and the latest diesel after treatment systems. Castrol Magnatec Professional B4 5W-40 integrates Unique Molecular
Attraction with Castrol’s proven advanced lubrication technology to deliver exceptional performance in
all conditions, whether stop-start city or highway driving.

Been - its Synthetic Engine Oil, it can last longer than Semi Synthetic or Mineral Oil - Recommended change is every 15,000 Kms (or 12 Month).

Though - theres not much of a difference in terms of Grades - 0W/40 and 5W/40 - except the fact that 0W-40 is slight a thinner Oil.

Almost Properties of both Oils are same.
Refer Article:- Engine Oil for Cars

But - its to follow in whats been referred by Manufacturer in Service Manual, as a thorough R&D is been done to suggest the best Oil for the car

Yes the Oil would not be available in retail market as its a 5w/40 Magnatec Professional, been exclusively made for OEM (Manufacturers). Still sharing Contact Mail ID of Catsrol India - May write to them :

Hello,

Although Engine Oil Viscosity is same - but is there any specific reasons for deviating in from Manufacturer Engine Oil
As the car driven more than 1.1 Lakh Kms - If you feel like servicing on your own instead of VW Workshop then although its best to follow what Engine Oil recommended by Maker - but based on Oil Viscosity then yes - Shell Helix Ultra grade can be used in the car

In case you seek to write in ownership review and details on car so as to help future buyers - may Write a Ownership Experience

Hope should help !!
