Volkswagen Vento Highline Plus trim to be launched soon

Volkswagen Vento Highline Plus trim to be launched soon

Volkswagen is planning to launch a new variant of the Vento with additional features. This trim will be called as the Highline Plus and get additional features over the top-end variant of the sedan.

As the 'Plus' badging suggests, the new trim will be based on the current Highline version of the Vento and pack some more features. The most evident addition in the fascia are the full LED headlamps underlined by LED daytime running lights (DRLs). Volkswagen is just giving minor upgrades to this version of the sedan, while the overall design and dimensions of the car will remain unchanged.

Inside, we expect VW to add a new touchscreen infotainment system with Mirrorlink connectivity. There might be an auto dimming IRVM and rain sensing wipers as well. Most of the interior design elements and features will be carried over from the existing Vento including interior colour schemes (Cloud Titanschwarz and Walnut Desert Beige). The Highline Plus trim will borrow features like seat upholstery, cruise control, a dead-pedal, external boot release, etc. from the existing model.

Engine options for this variant will be the same as the recently updated ones. The 1.5-litre TDI diesel motor (108bhp, 250Nm) is new in the Vento, which has been borrowed from the Ameo and replaces the old 1.6-litre unit. The petrol versions remain the same with 1.2-litre TSI and 1.6-litre TSI engines producing 103bhp with 175Nm and 153Nm respectively. These engines come mated to either a five-speed manual or the seven-speed DSG gearbox.

There is no word on the pricing of this Vento Highline Plus trim yet. This should be Volkswagen's latest offering for the New Year and we expect it to reach dealerships soon.
