About Volkswagen Vento 2015-2019

The Volkswagen Vento is the second sub-Rs-15-lakh sedan the company sells in the country and slots in above the Ameo sub-4-metre sedan. It was first introduced in the country in 2010 and has been on sale ever since with small changes made from time to time. It was given a refresh in April 2017 where it received features like all-LED headlamps. The Volkswagen Vento continues to be based on the same platform as the Polo hatchback, and considering the company is not planning to launch new MQB-based products here anytime soon, will continue on soldiering till it becomes too old to be competitive in the market. Most recently, Volkswagen has added a cosmetic ‘Sport’ variant to the Vento lineup to make it more appealing.

Volkswagen Vento 2015-2019 Overview

Volkswagen has been prepping the facelifted Vento for quite a while now. Spy shots of the facelift have been spotted tested on Indian roads in disguised and raw form. And now we know that Volkswagen will launch the Vento facelift alongside the Polo facelift on September 4 in India.

The front fascia reveals a GTI-esque face and the bonnet gets a cutout to occupy the VW logo just like the Polo. While the side profile remains the same, the spied sedan was seen riding on dual-tone alloy wheels from the Cup Edition car. A closer look also reveals a sleek chrome strip running along the lower section of the doors.

Under the hood,the 1.2-litre TSI will likely be continued alongwith the 1.6-litre MPI motor.

The Vento facelift is expectedbe priced at a slight premium over the pre-facelift version.Once launched, the Vento will continue tocompete against the Hyundai Verna, Honda City and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Vento 2015-2019

Q. Between Verna and VW Vento, which will be best to buy a car for my family?
  • Please decide whether you want petrol or diesel. if petrol I suggest vento tsi dsg 7 speedpros-Excellant drive 1.2 litre turbo charged ,sports mode is thrilling,also tiptronic manual.!! Independent suspension take roads without a jitter.Good safety features strong chassis. . Diesel TDI dsg have frugal power. Verna petrol is a CVT comes with 7 speed (earlier 5speed)diesel CVT 7 speed not that exciting. Excellent mileage in dsg tsi upto 18(yes) on open roads.Never comes with under par performance Mediocre in verna auto petrol cvt scenario is different when it comes to manual ..verna has 1.4 1.6 petrol crde diesel etc etc. vento has 3 variants in both petrol and diesel.petrol good but not fuel efficient.Diesel engine has niggles. Verdict-Petrol or diesel automatic go for vento Manual -try vento .bye .thanks .
  • Vento Diesel MANUAL. don't buy automatic vento. I have both manual and automatic. Manual - No mechanical repairs yet - car has been driven 1.7lacs kms. 2011 model. Automatic 2015 model - fly wheel replaced 2 times, battery replaced 2 times, fuel pump replaced once, steering rack replaced once. Ac condenser replaced once. 45000 kms driven non accidental car where the 2011 model met with an accident and yet there is no issue. if you are buying vento then make sure you buy 5 years extended warranty + 2 additional years. I've been told they are giving additional warranty on new models.
  • Honestly Vento's is a out & out drivers car. It has impeccable outer & interior build quality. Everything is build to last, precision handling, great steering feedback and a good diesel engine. That is where good things ends. Now coming down to the minuses it is quite old by todays standards in terms of looks and the platform it is based on.Putting it in simple words, it has been phased out long back from all other markets!! It Lacks space, luxury, features etc etc. Frankly list is long. This where Verna trumps Vento!! Simply it is the best C-segment car hands down. It might not be master of everything but certainly a very good jack of all trades.

Q. Hello, I am confused between Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento, Petrol top end automatic. please suggest which is a better buy
  • Rapid and Vento both have the same VW engine. Both carry similar features, built quality and safety features. Rapid has an upper hand in terms of handling cornering and maneuvering at high speeds. In terms of external design, I rate Rapid far more better than Vento.

Q. Vento vs Rapid which one is best in pickup
  • Considering the best pick up among the two here winner would be Skoda Rapid's diesel engine. A diesel motor is a four-cylinder unit that makes 110PS of power and 250Nm of torque. In comparison, Vento has the 1.5-litre diesel engine which pumps 105PS and 250Nm while it is not the most powerful car in its class. There’s not much to dislike about the Skoda sedan. With the facelift, it looks as premium as ever, and packs in more tech. If you feel the Vento is a bit out of reach, pick the Rapid. It’s practically the same package delivered with a smaller pinch to the wallet.Do take the test drive for both the cars in order to judge the ease, comfort and the driving experience.
  • Thinking in another anglewhen sedan of this segment people opt for vento .Premium luxury skoda Otavia or superb is preffered over Jetta or passat .Exception is touareg.
  • Both are same but aftermarket experience is good in vento compared to rspid

Q. Which octane number petrol should I use in my Vento 1.2 TSI car?
  • I used premium...or mostly normal..from good pumps..means normal unleaded from good pumps.
Q. Is it very slow on pick up in initial gears - Vento?
  • No ways, In the drive mode you might feel some lag below 2000 RPM. But in the Sports, it's awesome as the engine idles at close 2000RPM, so the acceleration is instantaneous. The car is off the blocks in a flash and revs right upto 6000rpm with sweet sound of the engine filling the cabin. The DSG gearbox is super quick in gear-shifts. The 1.2ltr turbo engine + DSG is an adrenaline junkies drug.
  • The Volkswagen Vento is currently available in 3 engine options. A 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine, a 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine and a 1.5 TDI engine. The car has a hold over the power and torque available which makes it a car with no issue. The lag might be felt on the 1.5-litre TDI engine as it is the same offered on the Polo.
  • Not for petrol 1.2 turbo automatic it flies ...also sport mode is there it may be true regarding 1.5 litre diesel.manual

Q. Confused between VW vento Highline Plus At & Skoda Rapid Style AT ,Please suggest Thanks in advance :)
  • I suggest you go for VW Vento Highline Plus AT, because basically Skoda Rapid is VW Vento with Skoda Batch on it. so it does not make any difference. I have driven Skoda Rapid AT also did not find any extraordinary difference in it. at the end it's up to you which car do you prefer more aesthetically amongst these two.
  • Hi sir both are same.after sales if volkswagon has good net work.After killing fabia service centres for skoda is full or not there in some places.
  • It's the same car, except for cosmetic changes. Take your pick according to which appeals to you more.

    I have the vento automatic-my second vento - a gr8 and power packed vehicle. 1.5 litre diesel automatic TDI engine just makes it the top of the line sedan. Feature and comfort-wise the car is gr8. Driving this powerpacked car is a lot of fun but the only sudden problem is the mileage issue - the mileage has suddenly reduced after the first service check - dont really know what the problem is but excluding this issue - the vehicle is running perfectly. I do1 a lot of intercity driving so mileage on the highway is not an issue -approx 20 and #25 if drive @80-100kmph (self tested) City mileage approx 13-15kmpl.

    vento is a drivers car the maintenance cost of the car depends on the driving style of the driver.when I bought it new I changed the brake pads at 9500kms, then again at 13000kms after that I changed my style of driving now the brake pads are good and I hv done 33000kms with 50% of the brake pad. other cars in this segment may have good features but when its comes to performance its the car which stands out. I will recommend this car 100%.

I am having IPL edition car...so far this car never give me a problem.....its my favorite car as its transmission is so smooth like a butter.... The only point to think is its service cost...which make me think twice.... Otherwise this car is having very tough engine...I really thankful to GM and Volkswagen for manufacturing such a lovely car

    A excellent car. Spares are very expensive. Annual service charge is too much. Some parts are of poor quality-brake discs, ac vents, wipers, ABS brake sensors and had to change fuel injectors twice(in guarantee period) arm rest upholstery peeling off. MY car is vento diesel highline 2011 has clocked 50000km. AC is not very effective. On the high way it is a pleasure to drive.

  • 3.0

    I have driven about 57000 km in 7 yrs. There are some design flaws in the car. They are :-1. No engine temperature / coolant gauge2. No manual door locks. In case of total electrical failure you cannot pick the car.3. Very soft suspension & less road clearance.4. Poor quality of plastics - radiator carrier tray keeps breaking, flimsy AC vents.
