VW Vento Made in India models Score 5-star Safety Rating in Latin NCAP [Video Inside]
In light of the recent “Dieselgate” scandal, the German automaker Volkswagen has finally managed to procure some goodwill. The India-made Volkswagen Vento, which is exported to Latin countries has scored a 5-star Latin NCAP rating. NCAP does safety and crash testing of cars, which are then rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 being lowest) stars based on their performance. Enhancing its safety characteristics, the car features dual front airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners, ABS, ISOFIX anchorages and a seat belt reminder.
The car managed to score a 14.73 safety score out of 17 for adult occupants and 34.16 out of 49 for child occupants because of which, the car features a 5 star rating for adult occupants, whereas only 3 star safety rating for its child occupants. The 5 star rating is only earned by cars that have side impact bars, which are upto safety benchmark standards. Also, adding to its safety credibility, Vento has managed to get ‘stable’ certification for its body integrity test.
Under the hood, the Indian Volkswagen Vento features three engine options, viz. a 1.6-litre MPI petrol, a 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine and a 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine. All engines produce the same power output i.e. 103.5 bhp, however the torque outputs vary and the 1.6-litre variants offer a peak torque of 153Nm, whereas the 1.5-litre and 1.2 litre variants deliver 250NM and 175Nm of torque, respectively.
