Priced nearly INR 1 lakh higher than the VW Vento Highline.
Volkswagen has launched the VW Vento Highline Plus in India with prices starting at INR 10.85 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai). The Highline Plus forms the top-end trim level and brings three new features to the car.
From the outside, the VW Vento Highline Plus is instantly recognised with full LED headlamps that have integrated LED daytime running lights. The 15-inch Zirkonia alloy wheels also remain unchanged from the Highline grade.
The interior of the Highline Plus trim level is no different from the Highline trim level. Regarding functional equipment, the only advantage the Vento Highline Plus has compared to the Vento Highline is the touchscreen infotainment system with reverse parking camera. It is worth noting that Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are unavailable even in this newly introduced top-end grade's infotainment system, or is satellite navigation.
The VW Vento Highline Plus is available with three engine options. The base option is the 1.6-litre MPI naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 105 PS and 153 Nm of torque and sends power to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. Above that, there's the 1.2-litre TSI turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine good for 105 PS and 175 Nm of torque. It is paired to the 7-speed DSG automatic transmission as standard.
Those preferring diesel power have the option of the 1.5-litre TDI turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 110 PS and 250 Nm of torque. Transmission choices include 5-speed manual and 7-speed DSG automatic.
