What’s New In The Updated Volkswagen Vento

2013 Volkswagen Vento Update

Volkswagen recently updated the Vento with minor changes and revision of prices. The company hasn’t given the Vento a sea of changes, instead the German auto giant has chosen to take the value path with its entry level models, the Polo and Vento. The Volkswagen Vento has been feeling the heat from Korea, with Hyundai’s fluidic Verna eating into the German automakers market share in the C-segment. Last month VW sold 1500 odd units of the Vento, while Hyundai managed to sell 4880 units of the Verna.

The changes to the Volkswagen Vento include new black headlamps, new alloy wheels and a navigation system with rear view camera and Bluetooth. The front end looks better with the black effect headlamps, but the new alloy wheels lack the style appeal of the old alloy wheels. The navigation system is mounted on the front windscreen and looks like an after market fitment. It is after all offered as an option. The Volkswagen Vento Highline diesel is priced at Rs. 12.06 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai).

Volkswagen doesn’t really need to play with the mechanicals of the Vento as the car drives well and has powerful yet frugal engines. The German automaker could consider an automatic gearbox for the diesel Vento, which could appeal to a wider audience. Currently its just the Verna diesel which is available with an automatic gearbox in the C-segment. Volkswagen will give the next generation Vento a 1.5-litre diesel engine (codenamed EA189), which is already under development.

    The alloys look out of place.

    They have a sporty feel to them, and dont gel with the elegant, subtle and simple style of the Vento. The previous alloys were better.

    Bad marketing strategy. Under equipped products. No VFM.

    I have been owning a Vento for last 6 months. All other features in the old version are good but the headlights power is really bad. It does not support you in the night driving at all. You can barely manage if you are driving in 4 lane otherwise it is too difficult and you feel as if you have not switched on the headlights. The pathetatic part is that VW is not even ready to accept it and when complained it states that it is all based on the prior market study.

      I have been using Vento highline for last few months and I am happy with the performance . It’s got very decent looks and the new version has all the accessories which is missing out in honda city. Mileage I am getting in between 19.5 to 21 km/l. Better decide after a test drive and go for what ur mind says rather than listening to loose comments…
