The key feature of Vento Highline Plus is the new full-LED headlamps with DRLs, akin to the unit mounted in the India-spec VW GTI. While previous reports stated that the Vento HL Plus would ride on 16-inch Portago alloy rims, the example spotted sits on 15-inch Zirkonia alloy wheels. It will also get a rear parking camera as standard.

Engine options for the Highline Plus grade are expected to include a 1.6-litre MPI naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol, 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and the updated 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel.
