Volkswagen India has announced the launch of the New Vento TSI today. New Volkswagen Vento TSI is powered by a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 105 PS of peak power and 175 Nm of torque. The engine is mated with the highly acclaimed 7-speed dual clutch DSG automatic gearbox. This makes the Vento one of the most advanced sedans in its segment, increasing its appeal by a huge margin.

Volkswagen’s critically acclaimed forced-induction TSI engines are compact, powerful, and use less fuel when compared to bigger, normally-aspirated engines. TSI engines also deliver higher torque output at relatively lower engine speeds, which makes these engines responsive as well as fuel-efficient in a wide range of operating conditions. The ARAI certified fuel efficiency for the Vento is 16.93 kmpl. Volkswagen India have priced the Vento TSI at Rs. 9.99 lakh, ex showroom, New Delhi.
