There are no detailed technical specifications available but the diesel model is expected to deliver 25.5 kg of torque as compared to 15.8 kg of petrol engine.

VW engineers have kept Vento similar to Polo up to the B-pillar and the changes in front are only in the grille and the headlights. The major differences are visible after the B-pillar where the engineers have extended the wheelbase by 50mm to provide more legroom to the rear passengers.
