Volksfest 2017 brings the VW Vento ALLSTAR to India
I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Along with the VW Polo and VW Ameo’s Anniversary Edition models, Volkswagen has introduced the VW Vento ALLSTAR in India. The special edition Vento is also one of the Volksfest 2017 celebration models.
The VW Vento ALLSTAR is a follow-up to the VW Polo ALLSTAR that from last year. The Indian-spec Vento ALLSTAR is more stylish than the Malaysian-spec Vento ALLSTAR. The special edition model features Blue Silk colour, Linas alloy wheels and an ‘ALLSTAR’ emblem on the B-pillar. Other highlights include aluminium pedal clusters, black and grey interiors and front centre armrest with rear AC vents. Blue Silk is probably just the launch colour, and Volkswagen will likely offer more colour choices.
The standard VW Vento is available in four grades: Trendline, Comfortline, Highline and Highline Plus. The Vento ALLSTAR is based on the Vento Comfortline. Thus, standard equipment should include electrically adjustable ORVMs, leather-wrapped steering wheel with chrome accents and piano black finish, leather-wrapped gearshift knob, cruise control, Climatronic automatic climate control, 4-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and rear centre armrest.
The VW Vento Allstar should have the same configurations as the VW Vento Comfortline. 105 PS 1.6-litre MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine with 5-speed manual transmission, 110 PS 1.5-litre TDI turbocharged diesel engine with 5-speed manual transmission/7-speed DSG automatic transmission and 105 PS 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine with 7-speed DSG automatic transmission are the Comfortline grade’s available configurations.
Volkswagen is yet to disclose the Vento ALLSTAR’s prices.
