Volkswagen Vento is my favorite car and drive this car plenty of times. I had a great and wonderful experience by driving this car. Here I want share few of real time experiences why to opt this car. It gives you the good mileage and the space is very convenient for the small family and looks very great. I had a great satisfaction with the dealer because he is very helpful to explain the car functionality very clearly. There was a great reliability in the parts of the car. All were made of excellent quality. As a over all the car looks stylish and decent to your comfort zone.Today I want to talk about Volkswagen Vento car it is very good can I have very good experience with Volkswagen Vento I want to share with you it will be helpful for you would choose best car in your budget. First I want to talk about style and design style and design is very good but if you want question and then I suggest you to go for other car because style and design is average of this car . Second fuel conception I will give three stars to fuel consumption of this car and I suggest you to buy this car. . .

#Pros

• A well-built, robust, European sedan

• Clean and contemporary styling. Boot is superbly integrated

• Stunning diesel engine. New torque king of the C segment

• Mature suspension setup. Balanced ride & handling

• Segment firsts : Reach adjust steering, gear recommender, adjustable driver armrest etc.

All-rounded nature; Jack of all trades

#Cons

• 6.99L Trendline (entry) variant is simply too basic

• Petrol engine isn't as impressive as the diesel. Average low rpm response

• Electric power steering. The Vento deserves a pure hydraulic unit

• Quite a loud & clattery diesel engine

• Thin 47 dealer all-India network. After sales has yet to prove itself

• VW's long-term reliability and ownership costs are unknown

#Design Boostup

Seamlessly integrated boot

Extended wheelbase over the Polo is obvious. Notice the cable carelessly dangling below.

Raised for India suspension, ground clearance of 168 mm

Tail pipe is hidden from rear view. It's neatly tucked under the bumper

Polo front, save for the fog lamps and lower air-dam design

Polo headlamps. Wish we got the twin-focal smoked European units

Chunky 7 spoke alloy wheels. Amongst the better OEM designs. 185/60 R15 rubber on the Highline variant

So uncool! The rear tow hook sticks out like a sore thumb

The suspension's bottom spring mount plate seems to be placed too low. It moves with the wheel though, and wont hit anywhere. This type of a setup is rare

Full brand name on the boot. Unusual for VW, they don't normally do this. Early Polos only wore the VW badge. Some marketing research firm must have told them its better for brand visibility

Steering wheel is great to hold.

Simply the best gearshift this side of 10 lakh rupees. Short, slick and a joy to use

Dials are very easy to read. When you start the car, the fuel gauge goes all the way up. When you switch off, it goes down in a nice progressive manner

MID also easy on the eyes. Data provided = Instant & average fuel consumption, distance to empty, countdown to next service, external temperature, odometer and time

Sound quality strictly average. Absence of AUX / USB support is shocking. Climate control is intuitive to use

Even the indicator stalks exude a built-to-last construction. Note the variable intermittent wiper setting and MID controls

Foldable key shared with the premium VW / Skoda cars. Boot release button comes in handy. Windows can be rolled up by long pressing the lock button

Adequate room in the footwell. Space on the left to rest your foot. Dead pedal missed

Driver seat height adjustment has good range

Adjustable (for height) center armrest rocks! Has a storage compartment inside

All 4 power windows have one touch up / down function. Door locking solution is lousy. Notice electric ORVM adjustment knob at the top

Rearward view is hampered by the high boot lid and large headrests

Prominent floor hump is an annoyance to the hopefully-occasional 5th passenger. About 5 - 6 inches in height

Rear air-con vents standard, even on the Trendline variant. Independent direction controls for either rear passenger

A segment first! Rear passenger can adjust the front seat (fore / aft) when he wants more legroom

Rear quarterglass adds to the bright, airy ambience at the back

Deep 480 L boot. Wheel wells intrude noticeably. End to end carpeting. Fixed rear seat does NOT fold

XL size glovebox. Well thought out partition on the floor, to hold the owner's manual

Sunglass, coin and business card holders on the glovebox lid

A vanity mirror, but no light for the lady. Driver side sunvisor merely gets a ticket holder
