What the Ciaz S is to the Ciaz, the Vento Sport is to the Vento

Volkswagen Vento Sport

Volkswagen is known to introduce limited edition variants of its Vento sedan every now and then. Now, the German carmaker has silently introduced a sportier variant of the Vento, christened the Vento Sport. Carbon-fibre Finish On ORVMs

To set it apart from the standard variant, the Sport gets carbon-fibre finish ORVMs, chrome ‘Sport’ badge on the front fender, glossy black roof finish, new side foils and a glossy black rear spoiler. The Vento Sport also gets a new red exterior colour which is not available on the standard model.

The Vento Sport is available in top of the line Highline and Highline Plus variants only. That means it is equipped with features such as electrically foldable/adjustable ORVMs, reverse parking camera with display on infotainment screen, automatic climate control, and touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, depending on the variant. For safety, it comes equipped with dual front airbags and ABS.

The Vento Sport can be had either with a 1.2L TSI petrol or a 1.5 TDI diesel engine (both are offered with the standard Vento as well)  which produce 105PS/175Nm and 110PS/250Nm respectively. The 1.2L TSI engine is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.5L TDI is available with either a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG gearbox.

On the other hand, the Vento Sport’s rival, the Ciaz S is powered by the 1.4-litre petrol and the 1.3-litre diesel engine which produce produce 92PS/130Nm and 90PS/200Nm respectively. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The petrol engine is also available with a 4-speed automatic transmission. Maruti has equipped the Ciaz diesel with smart hybrid technology, thanks to which the sedan gets idle start-stop, regenerative braking and torque assist functions. As a result, the Ciaz diesel is more fuel efficient that the Vento by 5.94kmpl kmpl, but is it really a matter of concern for those looking for a sporty sedan? We doubt. Maruti Suzuki Ciaz S

Last year, Skoda also offered the Rapid Monte Carlo edition with similar exterior equipment to the Vento Sport. Since Skoda had a copyright issue with that name the carmaker later renamed it to Rapid Edition X. Skoda is now calling it the Rapid Edition, and it is based on the Rapid’s Style variant and its prices start from Rs 10.96 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Volkswagen has not revealed the prices of the Vento Sport but we expect it to be priced at a premium of upto Rs 28,000 over the respective standard variants.
