Volkswagen Vento Engine & Performance
According to VW, the new Volkswagen Vento has a 7% more efficiency in fuel consumption, making it more competitive. We drove the Diesel – TDI with the 7-speed DSG (Auto) and the car again impressed us as it retains the same virtues of being a responsive and spirited performer. The gearbox though, has a certain initial lag. Also, what was noticed was that on releasing the brakes (in Drive mode), the car leaps ahead suddenly (forward or reverse) and one needs to be careful, especially in bumper to bumper driving situations.The suspension setup remains the same, offering a pliant ride and good overall composure, which is certainly a highlight of the Volkswagen Vento.
Volkswagen Vento Ride & Handling
The Volkswagen has always been a well sprung sedan. The ride quality is definitely one of the biggest virtues the 2015 Volkswagen Vento has inherited from its forbearer. With McPherson Strut in front the semi-independent trailing arm suspension is tuned on the firmer side, while the high profile 15-inch tyres makes the Vento marches over bad roads and practically glides over the tarmac.
Thanks to this setup and a precise and communicative steering, the 2015 Vento facelift has an absolute fun to drive dynamics. While negotiating turns it’s never fidgety, never loses it poise and is never unpredictable. This really boosts the driver’s confidence, making the Vento an obvious pick among its rivals.
Volkswagen Vento Safety & Braking
The Volkswagen Vento comes with two airbags and ABS. The vehicle has strong build quality and the cabin feels like a safe and assuring place to be in. Talking about after-sales service, Volkswagen doesn’t really excel much in this department. The company really lags behind its rivals by a huge margin when it comes to after-sales. There have been numerous complaints about Volkswagen giving sub-standard levels of service while the company’s service network is also not as widespread as rivals. However, the German carmaker is expanding its reach across the country. They currently have around 118 dealerships across 100 cities in India.

Volkswagen Vento Conclussion
The Volkswagen vento surely is one worthy car to take on its competitor but it surely does lacks some of the modern amenities that its rivals provides take the touchscreen infotainment system as an example. But what it does provide is surely an impressive engine lineup with two petrol and diesel engine options which are not only fuel efficient but also comes with an automatic gearbox as well.
