Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Reportedly starts at a price of INR 11.39 lakhs.

Initial units of the VW Vento Highline Plus have begun arriving at dealerships, one of which was snapped by a Team-BHP member. The launch of the new top-end variant is imminent, although VW is yet to divulge any official information.

The VW Vento HL Plus gets new LED headlamps with DRLs, which is similar to the unit fitted in the India-spec VW GTI.

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.
