Volkswagen, the German Car maker is back with a bang, with the all new Volkswagen Vento. Volkswagen Vento is designed to give direct competition to the market leader Honda City. The new executive sedan will hit the Indian roads in September this year, according to the company official. Honda has dominated the mid size premium sedan segment in India for a long time now but with the launch of Volkswagen Vento, the race to take the number one spot in terms of market share will now begin between the two Automotive giants.

The car is manufactured at Volkswagen’s new factory at Chakan in Pune. This facility is used in the production of Volkswagen Polo, Skoda Fabia and Volkswagen Vento. The company has plans to sell around 25000 units every year once the production starts with full swing.

Volkswagen Vento is expected to be positioned in the premium category car, same as Volkswagen Polo which is in line with a higher brand value of the company. The company will follow the same strategy for Volkswagen Vento as it does with Volkswagen Polo.

The added advantage that the all new Volkswagen Vento has in comparison to its competitor Honda City is that the former will be available in both petrol and diesel version unlike the latter which is available only in petrol version. The all new Volkswagen Vento comes with the same engine as is available in Volkswagen Polo i.e. 1.6 L petrol and diesel engines. While the petrol engine is able to produce a torque of 105 PS, the diesel engine generates a thumping torque of 250 NM. Volkswagen Vento is introduced in India with manual and automatic transmission. The petrol version is equipped with a 5 speed and 6 speed automatic gearbox with triptronic while the diesel variant comes with only 5 speed manual gearbox.

The Volkswagen Vento has been loaded with driver and co-driver side airbags, front and rear fog lights, front disc brakes, ABS, electronic anti-theft immobiliser, manual day/night interior rear view mirror, height adjustable 3 point front seat belts, anti-theft system with interior surveillance and back up alarm, pinch guard safety for all 4 power windows, etc.
