The sedan now gets new three-slat chrome grille taken from the 2015 Jetta facelift and new Passat. Apart from getting a new grille, 2015 Vento also gets redesigned bumper featuring the same dual-barrel headlamps from the last update. The front bumper now flaunts a new chrome line and larger air intakes which adds muscularity and sporty character to the overall design. Under the hood, power and specification remains same with increase of 7 percent in the fuel economy. The diesel variant gets 1.5-liter TDI powertrain which gives an output of 103.5 bhp @ 4400 rpm and 250 Nm of peak torque @ 1500-2500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-Speed MT and 7-speed DSG automatic.

Overview

The facelifted version of Volkswagen Vento is officially launched in the car bazaar with several changes to its interiors and exteriors. This stunning sedan is available in a total of ten variants with one diesel and two petrol engine's to choose from. There have been no technical changes to them, but now, they have been slightly tuned to give better fuel economy of up to 7.5 percent, which is one of its important updates. These motor's are offered with both manual as well as automatic transmission gear box options to choose from. Look wise, its front facade is changed a bit with aspects like a triple slat chrome radiator grille, a new set of fog lamps with static cornering lights and a large airdam with a chrome strip on it. On the sides, it gets a chrome strip on door handles, and electrically foldable outside mirrors with integrated turn indicators, while an attractive set of alloy wheels makes it look quite fresh. In the rear too, powerful 3D effect tail lamps are offered, whereas the sleek chrome strip on its tail gate further adds to its style. In terms of interiors, only a few modifications have been made. It now gets a cooled glove box, multi-function console and flat bottom steering wheel on which, a few switches are also mounted. But above all these, it now includes Space Max control that is useful for adjusting co-passenger's seat from the back. Apart from these, the cabin also includes footwell lights, ticket holder in the driver side sunvisor, monochrome multi-functional display, and storage compartments in rear doors. An infotainment system is also offered, which supports Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones.

Exterior
Exteriors

The most interesting thing about this facelifted version is the new additions to its exteriors. One of its aspects that lures buyers at its very first glance itself is the new, stylish set of Zirkonia alloy wheels. These are however, available only in its top end variant. Its doors are integrated with handles, which looks attractive with a chrome strip on it. These handles as well as mirrors are painted in body color, while the latter, further comes fitted with side turn indicators. In the front, it has a large windscreen made of heat insulating glass. It is equipped with intermittent wipers that have 4-step variable speed setting. Its radiator grille features three slats, which are garnished with chrome and it has halogen headlamps in black finish on either sides. The body colored bumper includes a wide airdam with a chrome strip, while the newly designed fog lamps come with static cornering lights. The rear end gets new tail lamps with 3D effect, while the trunk lid is embossed with a company's badge. Besides these, the chrome element on its trunk lid as well as exhaust pipe gives it a sassy look.

Interiors

Editor's take : The interiors of the Vento resemble that of the Polo, and at truly German. The rear seat knee room has been increased for the passengers, as the Vento will be more of a chauffeur driven vehicle. Even the boot size is sufficient on the Vento.

This refurbished sedan model has beautiful interiors that gives a refreshing feel to its passengers. A dual tone color scheme combined with chrome accents and high quality scratch resistant plastic material, adds to its classiness. The seats are wrapped with superior 'Cloud Titanschwarz' fabric cover with black interior theme in Trendline and mid range trims. While the Highline variant gets leatherette upholstery with two tone 'Walnut Desert Beige' interior theme. The front cabin looks simply elegant with a smooth dashboard that comes fitted with a new flat bottom steering wheel and a multi-function console. The glove box has cooling effect, while the sunglass holder further adds to their convenience. The gear shift and steering wheel are both wrapped with leather, while the instrument cluster includes tachometer, odometer and a tripmeter as well. Other aspects in the cabin include cup holders, 12V power socket, footwell lights, front and rear center armrest, dead pedal, trunk illumination and three grab handles to name a few.


Interior Comfort:


Its not just style, design and performance, but the comfort factor in this sedan also makes it stand out among others in the market. A multi-function display in the front provides the driver with useful information like traveling time, average speed, outside temperature, and a few other updates. Vento becomes the first model in this segment to get the space max seat adjustment control function. This feature allows passengers in the rear to adjust co-driver's seat from the back. Both the front and rear windows are power operated, while the outside mirrors are electrically adjustable and foldable as well. Besides these, it has a height adjustable driver's seat, fuel lid opener, lane change indicator, as well as sunvisors with a vanity mirror on the left and ticket holder in the right one. Another useful aspect is the proficient climatronic automatic air conditioning unit, which includes dust and pollen filter. Also, dual AC vents are available in the rear, which helps in making the journey more comfortable and pleasant as well. Some other aspects like storage compartment in all doors, rear coat hooks, 3-way trunk unlocking, front and rear center armrest, and cruise control function further augments the level of comfort.


Interior Measurements:


This five seater vehicle guarantees enough leg and head space inside the cabin owing to its good exterior dimensions. A 55 litre fuel tank is incorporated for both petrol and diesel variants. Moreover, it is designed with a boot capacity of 494 litres, which is good enough for placing a lot of luggage inside.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The acceleration of the diesel Vento is better than the petrol manual. The diesel does feel more powerful than 105bhp of power than it produces. But the TSI is equally quick like the diesel. 

 

Its TDI based diesel power plant is offered with both manual and 7-speed DSG automatic transmission gear box options. These variants can attain a top speed of around 175 to 185 Kmph and accelerates from 0 to 100 Kmph in nearly 12 to 14 seconds. The 1.2-litre petrol motor propels the vehicle to cross the 100 Kmph speed mark in approximately 9 to 11 seconds and achieves a maximum speed of about 175 to 180 Kmph. Meanwhile, the trims with a 1598cc mill can reach the speed barrier of 100 Kmph in around 12 seconds, while the top speed of these will come to nearly 185 Kmph.

Engine and Performance

Editor's take :The diesel is certainly the pick of the duo, not just for its efficiency, but even for its outright performance and drivability. Though the power ratings are similar, but the diesel engine’s performance more superior. The performance of the TSI version is as good as the diesel, however it is automatic with seven-speed transmission.

 

This new version allows its buyers to make a choice between one diesel or two petrol engines. Interestingly, all these motors are capable of generating the same power output of 103.5bhp. The 1.6-litre petrol mill comes with a displacement capacity of 1598cc. It is based on double overhead camshaft valve configuration and carries 4-cylinders, 16 valves. It is integrated with a naturally aspirated, multi point fuel injection system and yields torque of 153Nm at 3800rpm. This vehicle is offered with another 1.2-litre petrol engine , which comes with the SOHC valve configuration. It displaces 1197cc and is paired with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission gear box. Coming to its turbocharged, common rail direct injection based diesel motor, it is a 1.5-litre unit that generates 250Nm torque in the range of 1500 and 2500rpm. This mill has a total displacement capacity of 1498cc and is available with both 5-speed manual and 7-speed DSG automatic transmission gear box options to select from.

Mileage

Editor's take : The diesel engine on the Vento is one of the most frugal engines, while the Indian spec petrol is tuned for higher fuel efficiency. The new TSI petrol is efficient too.

 

An improvement in mileage is the major change that can be noticed in this latest version. Its 1.6-litre MPI petrol mill gives a maximum of 16.09 Kmpl, whereas its TSI based 1197cc engine returns about 18.19 Kmpl. On the other hand, its manual diesel variants offer a mileage of approximately 20.64 Kmpl, which goes up to 21.50 Kmpl in case of automatic trims.

Power of Volkswagen Vento

The torque output of its 1.6-litre petrol mill is 153Nm at 3800rpm, whereas its 1.2-litre petrol motor yields 175Nm between 1500 and 4100rpm. Its 1498cc diesel mill produces a maximum torque of 250Nm in the range of 1500 to 2500rpm. Surprisingly, the peak power output of all these engines are the same, which is 103.5bhp, but have different rpm values.

Accessories
Stereo & Accessories

Editor's take : The recent addition of new features on the Vento has made it feature rich. The Vento now comes with satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, SD car connectivity and steering mounted audio controls. Satellite navigation is an optional feature.

The mid as well as top end trims of this model series are bestowed with an infotainment system, which features CD and MP3 player. This unit also comes with USB port, auxiliary input and SD Card slot as well. Additionally, it also supports Bluetooth connectivity for calls and audio streaming in Highline variants. The switches for operating this unit are mounted on its steering wheel. Whereas, its base level Trendline trim is offered with radio preparation facility, a roof mounted antenna and also has partial pre-wiring. Besides all these, the owners can even select different accessories as per their requirement. Some of these include door side protector, trunk accent spoiler, navigation system with rear view camera, attractive seat upholstery, mud flaps, textile floor mats, car covers and various others in the list.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The ride of the Vento is a tad stiffer. This is done to improve the handling characteristics of the vehicle. The handling of the Vento is good and it carries the VW DNA.


This stylish sedan series is bestowed with a speed sensitive electronic power assisted steering system that has tilt and telescopic adjustment functions. It ensures more easier and comfortable driving by checking the speed and adapting the steering accordingly. A proficient suspension system, on the other hand, aids in maintaining stability all through the drive irrespective of road conditions. Its front axle is assembled with a McPherson strut and stabilizer bar, whereas the rear one, is affixed with a semi-independent trailing arm. The braking mechanism is also quite reliable. A robust set of ventilated disc brakes are fitted to its front wheels and drum brakes are used for the rear ones. It is further accompanied by ABS in mid and Highline trims.

Safety
Safety & Security

Editor's take : The top spec Volkswagen Vento comes with two airbags and ABS as safety features.

 

On the safety front, this facelifted version has numerous features that assures enhanced protection of its occupants. There are 3-point seat belts offered in the front and rear along with a lap belt for the rear middle occupant. Moreover, the belts in the front row additionally include height adjustable function. Not only the windows are power operated, but they also have pinch guard function on all doors in Comfortline and top end trims. An electronic engine immobilizer with floating code helps in safeguarding the vehicle from theft. It also includes two airbags in the front, whereas the rear parking sensors alerts the driver about any obstacles in the way through audible signals. All the variants also have aspects like front and rear height adjustable head restraints, high mount stop lamp, day and night interior rear view mirror, speed sensing auto door locks, rear defogger, and central locking system as well. Besides these, some advanced features are offered only in its mid and Highline variants, which include front fog lamps with static cornering lights, anti lock braking system, electronic stabilization program and hill hold control that ensures extra security.

Wheels

A conventional set of 14 inch steel wheels are fitted to the entry level variant of this latest version. These rims have full wheel caps and further covered with 175/70 R14 sized tubeless tyres. The wheel arches of its Comfortline trims are equipped with a set of 15 inch steel wheels, while the top end variants get Zirkonia alloy wheels of the same size. The tubeless tyres covering these rims bear the size 185/60 R15. Moreover, the firm has also provided it with a spare wheel and all other essential tools using which, a flat tyre can be changed easily.

Pros

1. Increased fuel efficiency is one of its major benefits.
2. Exteriors with several new aspects are quite impressive.
3. Performance oriented engines.
4. Maximum security is guaranteed.
5. Enough cabin space with better leg room.

Cons

1. Acceleration and pickup can be improved further.

4. More utility features can be offered.
5. Comfortline variants can be given leatherette upholstery.
