New Volkswagen Vento – All Important Details You Need to Know

Know all the key details of New Volkswagen Vento.

Every once in a while, there arrives a car that looks like a tame machine but is a ferocious wolf at heart. Volkswagen Vento TSI is exactly that. The German auto giant had launched this compact, mid-size Sedan in India and since then, it has never failed to impress.  Over the years, the Vento has been improving at a steady pace and is on to become a well-rounded product with its updated equipment list and safety features that complement its sophisticated build very well.

Offering the best of both worlds, with its turbocharged 1.2-liter petrol engine — which is also present in the company’s Polo TSI hatchback — as well as a state-of-the-art, six-speed DSG automatic gear transmission, Vento is a sight to behold. This dynamic combo made Vento an appealing proposition for those who wanted to avail the comfort of automatic and as well as those with an unparalleled passion for driving, in equal measures.


Speaking of the BS6 era, Volkswagen has decided to ditch the 1.2 TSI and DSG combo to employ the all-new 1.0 TSI mated to an all-new 6-speed torque-converter automatic. But what changes will this bring? Let’s find out!

There is so much to talk about this new transmission. In daily driving scenarios, it shifts like butter for the records. Smartly working its way around the 1.0 Litre TSI’s turbo lag at low revs. One of the best changes that this torque convertor offers, is a strong build-up of torque at low revs.

A point worth noticing is the beautiful way the automatic transmission is calibrated to not shift to the top-most ratio at the earliest. This facilitates maximum output out of the small-capacity, three-cylinder motor. So, when you want to up the pace to keep up with traffic, there is always enough performance on standby to get you roaring.

The 1.2-liter engine may impress you as a lugubrious mule, but it breaks the stereotype that bigger engines are more fun. What adds to the magic is the DSG gearbox’s stellar performance. It’s Calibrated to operate in 3 modes:

D – This mode is for regular driving

S – This is the sports mode that 100% guarantees adrenaline rush, and

M – This mode lets you redline the needle and gives you the ‘fast & furious’ feels

With this awesome feature coupled with excellent suspension, Vento delivers all qualities needed for a comfortable ride.
