I have purchased a VW vento highline petrol in Nov.2014 and the running was upto 7000 Kms only. Very recently, the car was driven at a speed of 120 - 130 KMPH on a stretch of about 100 Kms. When we stopped and parked the car, there was smoke in the bonnet, and we opened the bonnet to witness that the coolant oil chamber boiled and spilled out.

We were asked to fill up distilled water in the chamber and we did it.
Whether this will affect the efficiency of the engine ? Or will become a problem in the near future ?

It will damage in your car Engine.

If coolant levels are low and instead of using coolant - distilled water is only poured in - then it may work as a temporary solution for a stop gap arrangement so as to drive away car to workshop

Pouring distilled water instead of coolant will change the proportion mix of coolant reservoir and would likely overheat the engine and in worse case may corrode in critical engine components if you continue using the car in same fashion without addressing the issue.

Best is to visit in Volkswagen Service center on asap basis and get it diagnosed for coolant popping out - is the coolant cap not tightened properly or any other leakage issue. Also to top up coolant or replace and flush existing coolant by topping up with new coolant altogether.
