No other company has brought state-of-the-art engineering to India quite like Volkswagen. The Vento is not only tons of fun to drive, but it provides drivers with a unique feel and style.
At a price that regular people can afford and with a design that feels modern, it is a big deal for the Indian marketplace, which is exactly why we felt the need to talk about it.
The Tale of the Volkswagen Vento
The Volkswagen Vento was derived from the Volkswagen Polo, though stretched just a tad to differentiate it. It was made by subsidiaries of Volkswagen for India, Russia, and South Africa, and was first debuted in 2010. It wasn’t until four years later in 2014 that the car was introduced to the Mexican Market.
An Overview in Technology – the Volkswagen Vento
The 2019 Volkswagen Vento is known as “subcompact car.” It comes with a front-engine design and front-wheel-drive and is powered by a maxed-out 1.6L MPI engine that uses petrol. Some of the top features of the car include the auto-dimming rear-view mirror, the rear parking camera, the dual-shift gear system, and the electronic stabilization program.
A Short Timeline of the Volkswagen Vento (2010-Present)
The Volkswagen Vento is still in its first generation, though there have been a few changes to the model over the years. In 2011, the Vento had a special Breeze edition with a few added premium accessories.
A few years later, the company decided to introduce the TSI model, which utilized a 1.2 TSI engine that came from the Polo Hatch.
When 2014 rolled around, the car was offered to the Mexican market with a choice of a petrol or diesel engine. By the end of 2018, the Bharat Stage VI emissions were introduced in India, meaning the Vento had to ditch the 1.5TDI engine that it was known for.
