As we have been saying, Volkswagen India will be soon seen launching a new petrol variant of its Vento C segment sedan. Being developed on the likes of the VW Polo GT TSI, the upcoming Vento variant will be called as the Volkswagen Vento TSI and could be launched within next few days.
Visually, the car will be exactly like the regular variants. The only bit that would help in differentiating the upcoming car from the existing variants will be the ‘TSI’ badges on the bootlid.
Powering the upcoming Volkswagen Vento TSI would be the same 1.2 litre four pot TSI motor that powers the new Polo GT TSI. The motor is likely to offer similar power figures and would come mated to a 7 speed DSG auto box. The engine has a max power output of 105PS and peak torque of 175Nm for the Polo GT TSI. It is highly unlikely that the car would come with peddle shifters.
The Vento TSI will be available only in the Highline trim, which means it would come with features such as ABS, Airbags, Integrated Music System with bluetooth, et al. The TSI variant will also come with Electronic Stability Program (ESP) and Hill Hold.
The Volkswagen Vento TSI 1.2 could go on sale for a price of INR 10.3 lakhs. We believe that the Vento TSI would make for an interesting alternative for those who don’t have the budget to go for the bigger Jetta 1.4 TSI or the newly launched Octavia 1.4 TSI.
