Vento TSI scores 5-star safety rating

Vento TSI scores 5-star safety rating

Amidst Indian-made cars receiving zero stars in the latest Global NCAP tests, Volkswagen’s Vento TSI has just scored 5/5 stars in the ASEAN NCAP crash tests. Following the sedan’s launch in Malaysia, NCAP has revealed the crash test results which were conducted in October 2013. 

ASEAN NCAP crashed the Vento, known as the VW Polo Sedan back then, with 4 airbags and ABS only in October 2013. The test carried out was the frontal offset crash test at 63kmph with the Vento getting a commendable 4/5 stars. However, Volkswagen has updated the Vento after the test and it receives additional safety features with its DSG-equipped models in the form of Hill-Hold and ESC (Electronic Stability Control). These additions have led to NCAP upgrading the Vento’s rating to a 5-star. ASEAN NCAP has not physically crashed another Vento but have applied their testing methods to the updated car. 

Although the Vento TSI has upgraded, the rest of the range barring the Vento TDI DSG will remain at the earlier 4-star crash rating. Manual variants of the Vento and even the 1.6 MPI with the auto-box lose out on ESC and Hill-Hold and will hence maintain its 4-star rating.
