I was to decide between City and Vento, I drove City and pretty much was convinced, but thought of giving Vento a try. Called up Noida showroom, nobody picks up phone, then after trying for couple of times, executive picks up phone notes down my number and nobody calls back, seems they are pretty satisifed with sales targets. Finally I had to call up sales head, he showed moderate interest offering discount which he himself wasnt sure of and kept on reducing that on subsequent discussions over phone, but agreed to provide test-drive next day, which didnt happen. phew..... Honda was my original choice and is current choice now. would love to opt for german engineering some other day when they will start considering consumers interest and would feel an urge to sell. Honda has been in the market for more than a decade and has been a leader, I would currently stick to that and would buy City VMT shortly, I should thanks VW sales guys to rescue me from confusion that I had initially :)

    Hi Manish, I dont understand why VW Dealers are like this in many parts of india. I own VW Polo and my dealer is much better and i am happy still now. But anyhow, you have made a right choice. Honda City is a much better car than VW Vento in all terms except the engine. Have a nice car...

    is the vento's engine better than city ha haha vento city 105bhp 118bhp \

    a good joke'

    sriram |29 Jul,2011 11:44:06 AM

    A good joke perhaps by you Mr. Anmol.. Even your name looks so funny & joky as you.. BTW, to understand the engine of honda city & vento, here is the solution. Honda city engine power 118PS at 6,600 rpm where as Vento Power 105 PS at 5250 rpm... So if you know mathematics, calculate the power at the same RPM rate.The maximum torque of Vento is 153 Nm at 3800 rpm and honda city is 146Nm at 4800 rpm... Again do the same kind of calculation. And coming to the point of CC, Honda is a 1.5L with 1497cc where as Vento is 1.6L 1598CC.... VWW's this engine is the powerful engine in any cars starts from under 10 lacks.... If you dont understand these things, take both the cars and go for a race... But i again mind you that if i am at this stage, i will buy honda city which is again a much better car than VW Vento....

    listen MR sriram i really think you should go for personal enhancement program because i thnk your communication skill is jst like an illiterate person beacause a litterate person never make's joke on someone name...and for your kind information VW vento is a good car..thats why it is a huge sucess in keep your shitty reviews and fucking sense of humor limitted to yourself...

    Miss Sneha, btw why are you getting personal this time?? what communication still got to do with this ?? This is a site for interested buyers and i find these sugestions useful actually. So Guys kindly stop mud-slinging and give reviews..

    Vento is actuall a better car since it has better value for money and got many more gadgets than the city. Even engine is much more powerful than the City in terms of spec's. But in reality City's engine is much more refined and faster than the Vento. Keeping aside the design(Where City with its super cool design is a clear winner) since you are going for petrol, which means you are interested in performance, the Honda's motor offers that Sporty Punch which the Vento Lacks. Overall even though the Vento offers you more than the City, you just forget all that when you're behind the Honda's wheel. That's the reason why the Hondas are the most desirable cars in our country.
