The Volkswagen Vento has been in the country for a very long time now. First launched in 2010, the Vento received some minor facelifts and special editions along these years, but never underwent a generation-change. With Skoda and Volkswagen bringing some new cars this year, Volkswagen is readying its Vento for a generation-change in 2021. In this article, we will discuss 5 upcoming features of the Volkswagen Vento which is expected this year.
Connected Car Tech
The new Volkswagen Vento is expected to come with updated Connected Car technology, since the current tech on the Vento, which is the My Volkswagen Connect, gets limited featured compared to what the competition offers in its segment. Some features like remote start-stop, tyre pressure monitoring system and remote climate control are missing from the current-gen Vento.
The upcoming Vento is also expected to get a new floating-touchscreen. The current-gen Vento sports a touchscreen infotainment system placed in the middle of the centre layout just below the AC vents, but Volkswagen is expected to bring the floating-touchscreen infotainment system, similar to what we expect to see on the upcoming new-gen Skoda Rapid. The floating-touchscreen gives a fresh look to the vehicle overall.
Fully-digital instrument cluster
The current-gen Vento sports an instrument cluster with a small multi-information digital-display. However, the upcoming new-gen Vento is expected to get a fully-digital instrument cluster with some of its higher variants. The fully-digital instrument cluster will help Vento get a much modern look similar to its rivals.
The upcoming Vento is expected to get a 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine. Volkswagen might follow its one-engine only policy similar to what we see with the current Vento, but Vento might be offered with a sportier variant as well which might get the 1.5-litre TSI petrol.
The upcoming Volkswagen Vento will be based on the MQB A0 IN platform which the brand has specifically-built for the country. The platform will be indigenously built and will also underpin the upcoming Skoda Kushaq, Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Taigun. Due to the new platform, the wheelbase of the Vento is expected to increase by some margin, offering better knee-room to the passengers on the inside.
