Exteriors – It is not difficult to decide which is the looker of the two. While the Vento’s styling is neatly executed, it is the Fiesta which grabs more attention. Both cars undoubtedly look good but if you want to turn more eyeballs, the Fiesta is the one you should pick. The Vento’s problem is that it looks like the Polo at the front, with the foglamps being the the only difference between them. Not that the Polo looks bad, but Fiesta’s kinetic design is more catchy. Even the Fiesta is based on the Fiesta hatchback and once you reach the rear, you might find the Vento’s styling more appealing.

Both Volkswagen and Ford offer 15-inch alloy wheels on the Vento and Fiesta respectively. Surprisingly though, both the cars have almost similar alloy wheels too, with the Fiesta’s having an additional spoke more than the Vento. The Fiesta’s review view mirrors (separate from the body), A-pillar, chrome inserts around the door and boot-lid stress on Ford’s attention to detail on the new Fiesta.
