2014 VW Vento facelift revealed front
A new color, new alloy wheels and headlights are the body changes on the Vento facelift.

Like the new Polo, the Vento too gets new dual-barrel headlight clusters, and that is as far as changes go on the front. Designers have left the grille and front bumper untouched. Over to the sides, the Vento gets a new alloy wheel pattern, and a new body color (which is called Toffee Brown on the Jetta).

Inside, the tachometer of this Vento confirms it to be a diesel model, and as seen inside, the transmission is a DSG automatic unit. Like the new Polo, the Vento too gets the new flat-bottomed steering wheel, redesigned instrument cluster and silver inserts for the center console.

Mechanically, the Vento will ditch its 1.6-liter TDI engine for the new 1.5-liter TDI seen on the Polo. This engine is likely to produce 105 PS (103.52 bhp) at 4,400 rpm and 250 Nm of torque between 1,500-2,500 rpm. The 5-speed manual will be a standard fitment, and the 6-speed DSG will come on the top-end variant.

Competitors: Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Skoda Rapid, Ford Fiesta, Nissan Sunny
