Volkswagen will launch the Vento facelift in India tomorrow. Though Volkswagen had given the Vento its last facelift less just eight months ago, the German manufacturer has upgraded the C-segment sedan to help it put up a stronger fight against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City and the Hyundai Verna.
Being just a mid-cycle facelift, the new Vento continues with the same overall body structure, though it does get a lot of chrome trim to give it a premium look. The front gets a revamped fascia thanks to a new grille styled along the lines of the Jetta, while the rear also gets a redesigned bumper and new tail lamps. In addition the car’s rear bumper, boot lid, door handles and the exhaust pipe have also been garnished in chrome.
The interior of the previous Vento facelift was given a massive overhaul, and hence the overall layout of this new car has been left untouched. However, Volkswagen has expanded the feature list of the new Vento with the addition of cruise control, cooled glovebox, a dead pedal, external boot release and auto-folding mirrors.
Due to the lack of any serious upgrades, we can expect the Vento facelift to stay in the same price bracket as the current model. Click here to read the first drive report of the new Volkswagen Vento.
