    CarWale's Take on Volkswagen Vento

    • Good Things
      • Fun, easy to drive
      • Peppy engine
    • Could be Better
      • Rivals offer more space
      • Ageing design

    Volkswagen Vento Verdict

    The Volkswagen Vento has aged well despite having a dated design and lacking the extravagance that new-age sedans offer. And, it still scores high for being a well-built car and offering rock-solid German build quality with excellent on-road dynamics. Now, the new torque-converter gearbox continues to offer the convenience that buyers in this segment look for.

    Volkswagen Vento Review

    The Volkswagen Vento with a new torque converter is driven. How does it fare? Read on.

    Engines and Performance

    7.5 / 10

    Engine Shot

    The 2020 Vento doesn't get a diesel version and the only engine option is the brand's 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder mill. This small capacity motor produces the same 109bhp and 175Nm of torque as we'd seen in the petrol manual we reviewed before. We were quite impressed with it and now we see how this silent engine paired with this new six-speed torque converter gearbox performs. It replaces the renowned DSG gearbox offered earlier.

    Left Front Three Quarter

    Put the gear selector in drive mode and start releasing the brake. You'll notice the car instantly starts creeping forward due to the slightly higher set idling rpm. There's no hill hold or an auto hold function, which would have held on to this sharp response of getting off instantly. It would have given a sense of safety to new car drivers. Nonetheless, once one gets a hang of it, it’s easy to use effectively in traffic. Especially, without having to modulate the throttle much. As compared to its manual counterpart, the initial lag in power build-up isn't noticeable here. There's ample torque fed in by the new gearbox, which has done a commendable job of improving drivability. And with immediate responses, it doesn't make the engine feel dead or unresponsive before the turbo spools up. Sure, it isn't as quick as the DSG, but it helps put the power to good use and make quick progress.

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The Sport mode with sequential shifts allows you to push till the 6,000rpm rev limit before automatically upshifting. This otherwise takes place at around 2,200rpm in the normal drive mode where the engine gets into its element. Post this, you can feel the surge in power helping you go faster. Interestingly, you can keep the engine mostly at around 1,800-2,000rpm in higher gears and still continue doing good speeds of around 80kmph.

    Right Side View

    So how much of a difference has switching from an advanced tech like the dual clutch autobox to this conventional torque converter made? Not much really. Sure, the DSG was very quick and super smooth with seamless transitions. But the new gearbox isn't half bad. It's fairly quick, responsive, doesn't induce head nods, and complements this engine well. It won't plaster a smile on an enthusiast's face, but surely won't make him make faces. In its latest iteration, this new transmission is also more affordable than the more complex DSG. Hopefully, this one won't be mocked for reliability concerns like the latter. New car buyers will like it for its smoothness paired with a good performance from the motor.

    Ride and Handling

    7.5 / 10

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The Vento scores well even in the ride and handling department. Its suspension doesn't give a very plush feel being a little firm, but it absorbs jolts well, given our road conditions. You do hear the thuds if you go fast over bad roads, so it's recommended to slow down. Thankfully it didn't bottom out or scrape its under-belly over big bumps, broken roads, and diversions. Also, the steering is not the lightest in its segment and as a result, slightly more effort goes in while parking the sedan. 

    Left Side View

    But the weighted feel is more of an advantage when on the move. It's responsive too and quickly makes the car turn in the direction pointed at. It keeps the driver engaged and even the passengers remain comfortable for the most part. Unless you go insanely fast around corners, the body roll isn't felt. It remains planted nonetheless. Furthermore, phenomenal high-speed stability and confidence-inspiring brakes make cruising at, or stopping from even triple-digit speeds - a hassle-free affair.

    Right Front Three Quarter

    Interior Space and Quality

    7 / 10

    Dashboard

    Inside, you get the same VW treatment that you'd get in the Polo. So, it's good to have spot-on ergonomics, perfect driving position and good all-round visibility, even when you sit nice and low. However, this also means it's the same old dashboard layout and design unlike the modern interiors offered by rivals. And it's not the best in terms of deep storage spaces, its placement, and usability. Apart from this, you won't find many faults in the cabin that is old school but practical and solidly built.

    Second Row Seats

    Even its seats provide an upmarket feel and are comfortable with adequate support. There's good space in the front row and sufficient in the second, but not as much as is available in the newer rivals. It's still good for two in the back seat but a third person will be uncomfortable due to the tight shoulder room and a central tunnel floor hump. Thankfully, VW's easy access lever enabling more space for the left rear passenger continues, for owners who'll prefer to be chauffeur driven. Besides, it gets a large boot with 494 litres of space to take care of your extended weekend luggage.

    Features and Safety

    6.5 / 10

    Infotainment System

    When it comes to features and equipment, VW has left us in a position where it's difficult to find middle ground. It gets practical features and now even a touch screen unit compatible with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Mirrorlink. Then it tries to match up to the competition with automatic climate control, rear AC vents, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps with LED lights, et al. It's equipped with safety features like four airbags, a rear camera with parking sensors, traction control, ABS with EBD, Isofix seats, etc. Still it gets an analog instrument cluster with monochrome display, misses out on hill-hold, key-less entry, engine push-start button, sun-roof, wireless charging, automatic tailgate opening, and such bells and whistles that we've come to see off late in this segment.

    Conclusion

    7 / 10

    Front View

    There's nothing that is wrong with the Volkswagen Vento as a product, but the competition like the Hyundai Verna and the Honda City make it look bland and boring. These sedans have evolved over the years while the Vento still remains more or less the sedan that came in India 10 years ago. This might be a deterrent for buyers along with VW's inconsistent service. But again, the Vento definitely holds itself up well for its German build, quality, excellent ride and handling, usable features, and this automatic convenience.

    • Fabulous luxury ride quality
      It's a fantastic sedan under 15 lakhs, feels like luxury premium car, steering is like Mercedes that's very impressive. I have seen Ciaz, City, Verna but ride stability of Vento is so good. Interior feels like luxury.(2022 production Vento) Interior design and quality doesn't match with other sedans under 15 lakhs.
