VW Vento MalaysiaThe Volkswagen Polo sedan was primarily for the Russia and India and it was said the company was studying similar markets for its introduction.

Apart from China, we now know Malaysia could be in that list as the new Passat and Vento were caught testing in Port Dickson. The Vento (known as Polo in Russia) is based on an extended Polo hatchback platform and comes with a pair of 1.6-liter engines.

Power-loving markets like China and Malaysia might gain access to the racy TSI engine from under the Polo' hood.

Indian Autos Blog has learned that Volkswagen is averse to the idea of executing a sub-4 meter Vento even in the future as the customers in India believe "they have arrived" with the purchase of this German sedan. A sub 4-meter variant would dilute the Vento's image.
