The Vento facelift will continue to be powered by the same engines as the current model.

However, the press release issued by the company fails to mention the engine that gets the fuel efficiency improvement (the Vento is sold in India with 1.2-liter TSI, 1.6-liter petrol and 1.5-liter TDI engines) though sources say its the 1.5-liter TDI which will return better mileage.

On the feature front, the 2015 VW Vento gets a dead-pedal, a chilled glovebox, cruise control, an external boot release button, wing mirror mounted LED turn signals and electric-folding feature. The interior of the Polo-based sedan will come in ‘Walnut desert beige’ on the Highline trim and ‘Cloud Titanschwarz’ for the Trendline and Comfortline variants.

    People are not buying VW not because of product but because of its high maintenance (costly parts and service cost). Otherwise VW are brilliant products. To gain consumer confidence, they have to offer higher warranty period like 5 yrs standard and reduce/advertize parts/service prices. (like Ford did with Figo to shed costly maintenance image).

    I always like the quality VW offers and would buy it even if its having lesser features. Like me for many, maintenance is important aspect like product itself.
