Mr. Michael Mayer, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars

Volkswagen India has launched the VW Vento facelift at a starting price of INR 7.44 lakhs. The new Vento debuts with the 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine from the recently face-lifted Polo, along with the much raved about seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (DSG) from the recently launched Skoda Rapid face-lift.

Visually, nothing much has been altered apart from a pair of more powerful, double-barrel headlamps and a set of redesigned 15-inch alloy wheels. The new Vento also gains dual front airbags on all variants. On the inside a flat-bottomed multi-function steering wheel with integrated entertainment controls from the new Polo makes an appearance, apart from footwell lights, a refreshed color palette for the dashboard and Bluetooth telephony. New colours available for the Vento line-up include Toffee Brown and Night Blue.
