Pros : Eye-catchy sedan looks, power pack engine, great mileage, luxurious interior, rear AC vents.

Cons : No steering wheel mounted audio control and absence of audio system in the base model.

Desc : The Volkswagen Vento is the sedan version of its already popular small car Polo. The sedan version gets German engineering and European design inside out. The car is available in both petrol and diesel trims. The car looks longer in terms of overall dimensions. The Volkswagen Vento comes with a lot copy cut stuffs from Polo that is quite obvious as its the sedan version of the Polo. The interior of the car seems like overseas sedan cars and the owner might feel proud with the special treatment to the interior and exterior. Look and Style: The longer dimensional Volkswagen Vento wins the battle in the class with its super cool exterior and interior design job. Although the car has many borrowings from the Polo but looks distinctive with added and reworked components. I like the side view very much as it has larger wheelarches, alloy wheels and upswept style. Comfort: Most of the mid-size cars comes with 5 seating capacity but the occupants feel tight legroom and shoulder room but head room; the Vento has generous leg room and shoulder room as compared to other cars in the segment. The AC system works like any higher-end cars and the music system does its job with no error. Pickup: Loaded with 1.6 litre engine, the Volkwagen Vento feels you with confidence in any gear and provides you agile pick-up as well. I never felt lack of punch in any gear, even notching up to top-speed is as simple as crossing crowded city area. Overtaking also becomes much quicker with this solid powertrain. Mileage: In the fuel efficiency department, the Vento gets full marks when compared to other sedans in the category. The average mileage in my driving, it delivers around 16 kmpl. This is the one of the most appealing thing that impressed me very much as I do a lot of journey with it. Best Features: I would like to tell you that the Vento is the best sedan car and it has ample legroom, rear AC vents and best engine. Powered steering with tilt and telescopic adjustment. All power windows along with electrically adjustable rear view mirror. Needs to improve: I would love to see seat adjustments at least in the front seat row. Apart from that, Bluetooth and AUX connectivity would play important role to set it great premium car and the market response would be much higher than it is. Overall Experience: I bought the Volkswagen Vento a few days ago and do not complete much driving but so far its a value for money car for me, frankly telling you guys. So I could only mention the initial driving experience of mine on city roads. As its is powered by 1.6 litre motor, you can assume its output very well. The car allows you to roam in city as well as highways with on demand power, speed and acceleration; that means this is the car for short distance or long journey, its fuel efficiency figures will prompt you to use it regularly.

    I wanted to buy this but cancelled the plan after I took this for a test drive, here is what I feel - Pros ---- 1) Great looks 2) Great leg space for rear seats even when the front seat is pushed back all the way 3) Huge amount of boot space Cons ---- 1) Sub-par pickup / acceleration especially in lower gears 2) Sub-par music system which doesnt have USB / AUX 3) Installing a different music system / woofer / Amp or in fact any changes to electrical system would void the car warranty! 4) In base model (Trendline), only front power window controls with driver seat 5) Unknown cost of ownership / maintenance

    After I had a test drive I have decided to own a Vento inspite of the music system does not have USB or ALIX. The would have got more acceptability if this would have added to music system.I would suggest to add on this facility.

    Hai Nishant, i had buyed base model trendline disel one month back... pick is not bad.. it is very handy in lower gears but u have to follow the gear recommendation as mentioned in display when u are drivings.... regarding sound system.. i had gone for a touch screen with woofer and amp... it will not affect our warranty... For first 2 years they are giving free maintenacy for any kilometers.......maintenance is also very low please refer VWjetta( my freind own) is very cheap.. it is equal to indian cars.
