Volkswagen have just launched the 2015 Vento in Delhi. Prices will start from Rs 7.70 lakh ex-showroom Mumbai. The new car features changes to both the interior and exterior. On the outside, the Vento gets a new face with a larger grille that reminds us of the old Passat. The bumper has also received a refresh and is now more angular and features a larger air dam.
The air dam now features a new chrome strip across its length that adds a bit of definition to the face. There are also new alloys that come from the new Polo. The rear also features a similar lift in design with a few more chrome accents and a slightly different lamp design. Volkswagen have now also added a remote boot release switch that was missed in the outgoing version.
On the inside, there is a new darker beige trim on the door panels and the glove box is now cooled. The power trains remain the same though Volkswagen have changed the tune to squeeze out some more mileage from both the TSI and TDI mills.
Fuel efficiency has increased by seven per cent for the petrol engine and two per cent for the diesel engine. Volkswagen are accounting this change down to the new aerodynamic design of the bonnet and grille.
The top-end Vento with all the bells and whistles is priced at Rs 11.64 lakh, ex-Mumbai.
