Volkswagen Vento Review

Summary

Over the past few years, German car maker Volkswagen has carved a niche for itself in the Indian market by delivering excellent quality in its vehicles. Despite being a pretty high-end brand to be a mass seller, the company has created its own fan following. One of the models that have contributed to its success is the Volkswagen Vento - the mid-sized sedan. Good looking, efficient and high quality in terms of performance, Vento has done well while remaining in a highly competitive segment. It competes with the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Ford Fiesta.

Further to this, read Volkswagen Vento Road Test details by our expert.

Exterior

Volkswagen Vento is a sedan version of the Polo hatchback; thereby the appearances of both vehicles are quite similar save the extended rear of the former. This sedan is reasonably stylish and features a bold grille with a large Volkswagen moniker in its centre. The presence of fog lamps with static lights makes this car look even better. Other highlights of this car include chrome strip on door handles, ORVM with turn indicators and 15-inch alloys.

Interior

As expected from a Volkswagen vehicle, the interiors of this car are pretty classy and full of utility features. The German car maker uses what it calls the Space Max technology, which maximises leg room at the back through adjustment of the co-driver’s seat from the back. Furthermore, the presence of dual air conditioner vents at the rear ensures complete comfort to users. The multifunctional console in this car facilitates connecting calls, listening to music and controlling functions. Steering mounted controls further enhance the comfort of passengers. Trunk illumination, rear doors with storage compartments and front centre console with 12V outlet are some of the other features in the interiors of Vento.   

Engine and Transmission

Keeping everything aside, the proficiency of the engine is Volkswagen’s USP around the world and it is no different for Vento. This compact sedan comes in both petrol and diesel variants. There are two petrol versions of Volkswagen Vento, which are powered by 1.2-litre TSI and 1.6-litre MPI engines. The latter version of Vento, powered by a 1.6-litre engine, produces a power level of 103 BHP and a fuel economy of around 15 kmpl. The diesel version of this sedan is fitted with a 1.5-litre TDI engine that delivers top class fuel efficiency in excess of 21 kmpl.  

Performance and Handling

Like most Volkswagen cars, the performance of Volkswagen Vento is pretty good in terms of pick-up and power delivery. The pickup and acceleration of the diesel version is better than that of the petrol guise. Handling wise Volkswagen Vento is pretty smooth and the seven-speed automatic dual shift transmission system is the car’s highlight. Notably, the DSG transmission system is not available with all variants of the Volkswagen Vento. The steering of this car is pretty smooth and can be manoeuvred quite easily.

Braking System

The braking system of Volkswagen Vento, like in the Polo, is quite robust and ideal for Indian conditions. Disc brakes are present in the front wheels while the rear ones are equipped with drum brakes. The solidity of the braking system, coupled with that of the suspension, ensures more stability while riding for the driver and passengers. Front part of this car has a McPherson style strut system and the rear has a trailing arm (partially independent).

Mileage

The 1498 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 18 kmpl in city and 20 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 15 kmpl on urban roads and 17 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

Safety Features

Safety is one of the USPs of Volkswagen Vento and there are several features to ensure the same. This car is fitted with dual front airbags as standard, which is a must in the modern day scenario. Vento comes with the anti-pinch technology that prevents the window from closing if there is an obstacle in the way, thereby preventing any mishaps from happening. Rear parking sensors provide driver assistance while reversing the vehicle and alert him/her using sound signals. Vento also comes fitted with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), which improves stability in non-favourable road conditions. Interior rear view mirror, height-adjustable headrests, electronic engine mobiliser and high mounted brake lights are some of the other safety features in Volkswagen Vento.

Verdict

To put things in a nutshell, there is not much wrong about Volkswagen Vento as a car. Decently stylish, featuring well-designed interiors and equipped with several utility features, Vento has everything that a customer would want from a mid-sized sedan. However, in certain aspects, it lacks the cutting edge that would make someone buy it instantly. Also, the price of this car is on the higher side, which is a deal breaker for several customers in India. Nevertheless, Volkswagen Vento is a good car and anyone who buys it would not be disappointed at all.

Competition

Unfortunately for Volkswagen Vento, it is present in a segment with immense competition in the Indian market. Models like Honda City and Hyundai Verna have been present in the market for a long time and outdo Vento on a lot of accounts. For starters the brand value of Honda and Hyundai are higher than Volkswagen that certainly plays a role. Also, Verna and City, as models, are ahead of Vento in terms of mileage.

Pros

  1. Compact yet spacious
  2. Neatly designed exteriors along with well-equipped exteriors
  3. Lot of safety features and a top class engine, which combine together to form its USP

Cons

  1. Slightly on the higher side when it comes to pricing and part of a really tough segment with some amazing competitors
  2. Fuel economy is also on the lower side, which proves to be a deterrent.
