The Volkswagen Vento facelift has been spotted ahead of its official launch on September 24. The company has already started dispatching the car to dealerships, while the bookings for the car have already commenced. The updated Vento gets subtle changes to both exteriors and interiors.
The new Vento diesel model gets major mechanical upgrades. It is now powered by a 1.5-litre TDI motor that is capable of producing 105bhp of top power and 250Nm of torque. The same engine also powers the Polo hatchback. Power is transmitted to front wheels of the car via a new six-speed DSG dual clutch automatic gearbox. The new diesel motor will allow the company to price the car more competitive to the market. The Vento diesel automatic will be offered in Comfortline and Highline trims.
The new Vento shares the Polo facelift’s headlamps and chrome inserts on the front bumper. Inside the cabin, the sedan features the flat bottomed steering wheel which is directly sourced from the Polo facelift. The vehicle will also get a new Toffee Brown Metallic paint job and a newly designed alloy wheels.
The petrol version of the sedan is likely to remain unchanged. It will get the same 1.2-litre TSI motor producing 103bhp of power and the 1.6-litre MPI engine that produces 103bhp and 153Nm of torque. While the 1.2L motor is coupled to a seven-speed DSG gearbox, the 1.6L MPI features a 5-speed manual gearbox.
