Along with the 2016 VW Polo, VW India has also brought the 2016 VW Vento for display at the Auto Expo 2016. Like its hatchback brother, it gets new equipment that was previously unavailable.
VW has made a single change to the exterior – the inclusion of LED head lamps with LED DRLs. The Vento underwent a major facelift in 2015, which introduced a new bumper design, 3-slat grille, LED taillamps and more chrome embellishments.
Inside, the VW Vento gets new equipment such as rain sensing wipers, auto dimming IRVM, phone book/SMS viewer and Mirrorlink connectivity as part of a new touch screen infotainment system.
Engine lineup remains identical to the 2015 MY model, which includes a 1.6-liter MPI petrol engine, a 1.2-liter TSI petrol and a 1.5-liter TDI diesel engine. A 7-speed DSG is available on the TSI as standard, and on the TDI as an option; a 5-speed manual is standard.
The 2016 VW Vento is priced between INR 7.85 – 12.13 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).
