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.

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%.
Its a Nice car.....full comfortable for long drive also.. 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.
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.
It's really a German car the car is the car is fantastic
Vento 1.2 tsi has been a fantastic work horse, be it daily commite or highway runs , a care free pedal to the metal car of all times
DSG automatic is so smooth and in a city like Bangalore, driving became much better experience. Built quality and ride comfort are the hallmark of the vehicle.
I used 2012 tsi dsg 7 speed.Test drive was horrible until I understood it is a car which was tested left and right its tiptronic ,sports modewhen I rode my friends to find its above a class tsi is nick named as pocket jet...
Feels sluggish to pick up for some reason.. Not sure if its a widespread issue or just my unit!
We put the newly launched Ford Fiesta against the new Honda City and the Volkswagen Vento in an all-out diesel comparison test
The Honda City Petrol Automatic goes up against the Volkswagen Vento Automatic in a battle of the petrol automatics
The premium mid-size sedan segment already has a lot of great choices. But with the Fiesta upgraded with an automatic gearbox, the competition gets even more interesting
