The threat from continuous new entrants in the B+/C segment sedan markets such as Nissan Sunny, Ford Fiesta and the mighty Hyundai Verna cannot be ignored by VW India. More so, Skoda with its latest offering Rapid will pose a unique challenge for the Vento. The Rapid is a facelifted Vento and is likely to undercut corresponding Vento variants. The Vento's reputation will be put to the ultimate test as Skoda India has not changed many body panels or soft components in the cabin.
Hence, VW India is quick to respond to market conditions. The company has added a few more features to the Highline diesel variant such as:
- Steering mounted audio controls
- Park distance control
- RCD 310 Music System with USB and 4 speakers as standard features
This specific variant is no available at Rs 9.77 lakh, ex-showroom New Delhi.
Small but valuable add ons seem to be the trend of the market. Recently, Ford India also added a few more features to the Figo to make it a lucrative proposition.
The three add ons in the Vento are sure to bring a bit of ease to your daily driving. Especially the park distance control which is a boon in city environment where parking spots are tight. But by how much will the sales figures of the Vento rise, well only time will tell.
