1. VW Connect App
Volkswagen is providing a new ‘Connect’ assistance system that enables users to connect their car to their smartphone through a plug-and-play data dongle. The latter is fitted on the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port of the car and connects with the smartphone device via Bluetooth to provide vital information.
2. Lapiz blue exterior
The carmaker also introduced a new Lapiz blue body colour for all these vehicles. It was only available on the Passat earlier.

The car's roof is wrapped with a black body decal to distinguish it from the regular trims.
4. Black ORVM cap
The OVRMs also get the same black treatment adding to the appeal of the car.

Another major update is in the form of grey coloured 16-inch Portago alloy wheels as against the standard silver coloured ones.
6. Chrome fender badge
All Connect editions will boast of a chrome badge on the fender pointing at the special trim.
7. Stylish side foils
The company has also equipped these vehicles with stylish side foils with a 'Connect' emblem on it.
8. Leatherette black seat covers
The cabin of the cars gets an all-black theme and the seats are now adorned with leatherette black covers that look nice and premium.
9. Aluminium pedals
Volkswagen has also given the cars aluminium pedals to add to that sporty quotient inside.
10. Additional safety
While ABS and EBD are a standard part of the equipment, the carmaker has upped the safety quotient on the Vento with front side airbags.
