Available in three engine options.

Volkswagen India has introduced the VW Vento facelift at a starting price of INR 7.44 lakhs. The big feature on the facelift is the launch of the 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine which was introduced on the Polo facelift in July, and along with it the seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission.

Cosmetically, the front fascia of the Vento facelift receives new double-barrel headlamps, a slightly redesigned front bumper, new alloy wheels and a mildly updated rear bumper and taillamp.

The interior gets the new three-spoke steering wheel from the Polo facelift. The dashboard is in a brown and black dual tone theme with the center console getting a silver finish.
