Volkswagen will add a new variant to the Vento lineup called the VW Vento ALLSTAR. Similar to the Polo ALLSTAR in terms of feature additions, the special edition Vento will be introduced during the Volkswagen Volksfest this month as part of its festive season releases.

Since the ALLSTAR special edition is based on the Comfortline trim, it does not get full LED headlamps offered on the Highline Plus.

These images of the VW Vento ALLSTAR edition have been shared by Auto Arena. According to their report, the special edition is based on the mid-level Comfortline trim of the Vento. As part of the ALLSTAR package, the car gets Linas alloy wheels, Aluminium Pedals, Black and Grey interior, Pentastripe Anthrazit Fabric seats, leather wrapper hand brake lever, and 'ALLSTAR' badge on the scuff plate and B-pillar. There will also be a new "Blue Silk" paint shade on offer.

The VW Vento is expected to have all the features of the Comfortline variant apart from the new additions mentioned above. So, it misses out on chrome detailing on the grille and front bumper. It is unclear whether the cabin will receive a touchscreen infotainment system or not as the Comfortline variant does without one.

Volkswagen Vento ALLSTAR launch soon
The features offered as part of the ALLSTAR package are similar to the ones available on the Polo ALLSTAR introduced last year.

The Vento petrol and diesel variants will be offered in the ALLSTAR trim. Currently, Volkswagen offers the Vento with three engine options - 1.6 L MPI Petrol (105 PS & 153 Nm), 1.2 L TSI Petrol (105 PS & 175 Nm) and 1.5 L TDI Diesel (110 PS & 250 Nm). The 1.6 L petrol comes with only a 5-speed manual transmission option while the 1.2 L petrol gets a 7-speed DSG. The VW Vento diesel variant gets a choice of 5-speed manual and 7-speed DSG gearboxes.

For the Polo ALLSTAR, VW charges a premium of INR 30,000 over the Highline plus trim. Expect the Volkswagen Vento ALLSTAR to command a similar premium.

Since April, VW India has been exporting the Vento ALLSTAR to Malaysia, along with the Vento GT.
