Volkswagen Vento Facelift Spied

Volkswagen will be launching an upgraded version of the Vento soon, which is expected to be launched by by the end of October, 2011. The Vento facelift will feature smoked out headlamps (as can be seen in the picture) along with other minor upgrades to the car to bring it on par with the competition. We spotted this car in Chakan, where it was undergoing routine tests around the Volkswagen factory. Although not much can be analyzed from the picture, we can definitely conclude that the Vento facelift is just around the corner. Could Volkswagen offer projector headlamps and other gadgetry to ward off competition from the upcoming Honda City facelift?

Volkswagen has already given the Vento a better audio system along with steering mounted audio controls and rear parking sensors. The Vento facelift will also have smoked out tail lamps along with the possibility of cruise control debuting on the car. New colours will be offered with the Vento facelift along with a small price hike on the diesel option. We speculate that Volkswagen might even launch new engine on the Vento, probably the fantastic 1.4 TSI, which has received many awards internationally. Or could Volkswagen do what Ford has done and downgrade the 1.6-liter engine to a 1.5-liter one, which could soon find its way in the Polo as well.
