The diesel engine and the petrol (TSI) engines are highly efficient on the Vento. These aren’t just powerful but also return a better efficiency too. On the other hand, the 1.6-litre petrol engine isn’t the most powerful offering and is the least efficient of the lot. But then, this engine is the most affordable too.

Volkswagen Vento Design
The new Volkswagen Vento has not undergone any major changes but the still good enough to make it into the priority list of buyers in that segment. While mechanically the car remains identical, cosmetically a few subtle upgrades have made a difference to the appearance.
On the exterior, the Volkswagen Vento now gets the signature VW grille, reminiscent of the Passat. It is wider and broader now, with three chrome slats, alongwith a new bumper. The bonnet also gets deeper creases which add to the crisp looks of the car and the airdam is restyled with a prominent chrome strip.

Volkswagen Vento Interior
While the headlamps of the Volkswagen Vento remain the same, the round fog lamps are replaced by new ones with integrated cornering lamps. New alloy wheels, borrowed from the Polo look neat. The rear view mirrors now come with LED turn indicators and also are electrically foldable. Tails lamps have new internals that make it look smart. There is a new chrome lining on the boot, to make it look premium and a new rear bumper with chrome inserts and reflectors.
Another addition is a soft touch release button on the boot, in addition to the earlier release buttons in the cabin and on the remote. The door handles also get a dash of chrome on the top portion. A new interior colour theme which VW calls the ‘Walnut Desert Beige’ welcomes you inside.
The layout remains the same. It finds some welcome features like cruise control, a cooled glovebox, which was always spacious. I personally liked is the new dead pedal, which goes a long way in improving driving comfort.

Volkswagen Vento Engine and Transmission
According to VW, the new Volkswagen Vento has a 7% more efficiency in fuel consumption, making it more competitive. We drove the Diesel – TDI with the 7-speed DSG (Auto) and the car again impressed us as it retains the same virtues of being a responsive and spirited performer. The gearbox though, has a certain initial lag. Also, what was noticed was that on releasing the brakes (in Drive mode), the car leaps ahead suddenly (forward or reverse) and one needs to be careful, especially in bumper to bumper driving situations.
The Volkswagen Vento was always a competitive car in the C+ segment, having some unparalleled virtues. These virtues like a robust build, good ride and handling and a responsive engine are still retained and in addition it gets some features that are now desired by customers in this segment.
