Volkswagen Vento Facelift Preview
Vento, the C-segment contender from Volkswagen, was introduced in India back in 2010. In the last seven years, the Vento has received four updates and the fifth one is expected to be introduced this year. Like all other changes, even this one will be largely cosmetic and aimed at making the car look modern and contemporary.
The new Vento will get LED daytime running lamps and projector headlamps at least for the highline trim. The updates like the chrome garnish in the back and the wider chrome grille in the front will be retained along with the reworked tail lamps. The alloys might be different but the body shell is the same. With the improved looks, the Vento will hold sway with its classic sedan looks.
The interior might not be changed a lot but you can expect touch-screen infotainment, automatic climate control and rear AC vents. The cabin space will remain unchanged and so will the ergonomics. Under the hood, you will have the new 1.5-litre 108bhp diesel engine mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and a seven-speed DSG automatic. The 1.6-litre 104bhp petrol mill is paired to the five-speed manual gearbox while the seven-speed automatic is offered with the 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine instead.
The new Vento is already out testing largely undisguised which means the launch fo the new car is around the corner.
