Vento diesel video review
We have written a few stories in the past about the upcoming launch of the Volkswagen Polo sedan.
The hatchback Polo has been quite successful, with most road tests of the Volkswagen Polo claiming that the three cylinder engine of the Polo is not a drawback at all. The Volkswagen Vento, however, will have a different motor. Petrol and diesel versions of the sedan will be on offer, both with 1600 cc engines.
The length of the Vento has been increased by 50 mm for better legroom, and there is a bit more headroom too, thanks to the roofline which is flatter.
The design of the Volkswagen Vento is quite similar, but there are some differences in the design of the front. Interior is much better for longer journeys, reports the magazine.
The car would compete against the mid-size sedans in India such as the SX4, Honda City, Fiat Linea and the Hyundai Verna.
