The art of improving something nearly perfect comes naturally to Volkswagen engineers. We realised that just good headlights werent good enough. So we made them better. We also put indicator lamps in them. The state-of-the-art tail lights were designed keeping in mind everyones safety on the road, not just yours.

Crystal clear and accented in chrome best describes the superior fog lamps in the Vento. Needless to mention, youll simply love the way they light up the road ahead during bad weather.

The body-coloured rear view mirrors blend effortlessly with the muscular body lines of the Vento. Areas most prone to unsightly scratches feature a black base for added protection.

The sleek body-coloured door handles complement the Ventos distinct profile. Scientifically recessed, the handles are designed to protect the paint from unfortunate scratches.

The 15 alloy wheels are sturdy and considerably lighter, thus enhancing both, ride quality and road handling. Come to think of it, the alloy wheels make the Vento look spectacular as well.

A high level mounted brake light at the rear ensures that the drivers behind can now see you better. The brake lights do their job efficiently and lets face it; they look stunning too.

The elegantly designed headlights and the chrome accented front grille add to the charm of the Vento. The headlights featuring the chrome horizontal thunder-flash are now a signature feature of the Volkswagen design philosophy.

The clean yet stunning body lines distinctive to the Vento are carried over to its tail end as well. Subtle touches of chrome on the boot lid and well flushed integrated tail lights reiterate that the Vento is truly best in its class.

The Volkswagen insignia on the rear signifies our passion towards exceptional engineering.

The interiors of the Vento are your personal refuge from the cares of this world. Caress the steering wheel or even the gear knob and you will discover supple genuine leather that makes it that much more exquisite. In fact, every surface is well finished with exclusive fabric and upholstery, making the Vento truly splendid. The soothing colours and the impeccable finish are all typical of a Volkswagen.

The comfort in the Vento is unparalleled. Whether its the innovative green tinted, heat blocking glass that guarantees cooler interiors or the inimitable dust and pollen filter in the air intake, everything is uncompromisingly designed. The Vento is reassuringly flawless- all storage spaces are flocked on the interiors and all covers shut with a reassuring click. Weve left no stone unturned in crafting interiors that are a class above the rest.

We understand your need for personal space and yet be with the whole family on a long drive. Precisely why youll find a good balance of comfort and space when it comes to the exquisite interiors. Millimetre to millimetre, the Vento offers the highest cabin space in its class. Tastefully selected upholstery and the large glass area put the Vento in a league of its own.

The air conditioning vent is designed for improved air flow throughout the Vento. Chrome lining around the vents adds to its overall appeal.

The premium RCD 310 Music System with USB-in on the Vento elevates your CDs, MP3 and WMA files to a level that is sublime. Its now that much easier to shut out the world and enjoy the drive like never before.

Why choose when you can carry your world with you? The trunk offers all the space you desire. And the attention to detail is clearly evident. Note the low loading height that makes it that much easier to heft heavy luggage and the discreet rub shield that protects the body from scratches. Trunk illumination adds to the convenience. Why, take a look at the fully lined trunk, trunk floor and the well finished trunk lid, and youll find beauty even in the smallest of details.

The fact that you are contemplating owning a Vento marks you out as a person who makes informed decisions. The multi-function display keeps you informed of the fuel efficiency, maximum range before refuelling, distance travelled, performance figures and even a visual door ajar warning. Almost everything is now at your disposal.

The intelligent Climatronic air conditioning makes it a point to always keep you comfortable. The Vento automatically regulates the temperature to ensure a pleasant climate, making every journey a comfortable one.

Concealed underneath the front armrest is a fully flocked bin that makes sure no scratches mar the shine of your mobile phone when its placed in it.

Neatly designed on the front doors are the large bottle holders integrated into the map pockets, for easy accessibility.

The Vento's glovebox is spaciously designed to hold essentials for your daily journey. What's more, it offers the added convenience of iPod connectivity.

Convenience in the Vento is a given, what with countless nights and numerous weekends put in by our engineers in designing the interiors. Much thought has gone into each and every feature, so as to make your driving experience that much more pleasurable.

Here is a perfectly sized cupholder to hold your drink safe whilst you drive through chaotic traffic.

An armrest for you while driving is a comfort youll take no time in getting used to. For all the drives that involve stop-go traffic, this little wonder makes a big difference.

Youll be pleasantly surprised by the electrically adjustable mirrors which are controlled by an intuitive joystick control. A flick of the wrist and there you have it; perfectly positioned mirrors.

The perfect combination of comfort and posture comes naturally once you are in the drivers seat, what with its height adjustment lever. Ingenious, if we may say so.

The foldable armrest in the rear ensures that even the passengers at the back are taken good care of.

In the Vento, youll find individually adjustable dual rear AC vents, so that the journey seems just as comfortable as it is in the front. Add to that, tucked beneath the rear AC vents is a foldable cupholder.

We understand that no two drivers are the same. As a result, weve made the steering wheel adjustable for both, reach and rake. Finding the perfect driving position is not just a matter of comfort. Its what makes the Vento that much better to drive.

The Vento comes with the SpaceMax control which is available for the first time in any car in this segment. This innovative control allows you to move the co-drivers seat forward while you sit at the back, thereby maximising legroom.

For those obsessed with reading, the Vento caters to your need as well. The thoughtfully positioned lamps above the rear seat make sure that your perusal is always well illuminated.

With greater success in the offing, youll need to keep a level head. Well equipped with fully adjustable headrests, the Vento ensures safety along with total comfort.

Incorporated with world-class safety features, the Vento is designed to protect you and your family. With its robust design and superior engineering that has its genesis in an ultra high-strength steel frame, the Vento offers exceptional safety with a tough build that is reassuring, every time you feel the heft of the doors and the thump of its boot closing. This is supplemented with advanced safety features such as dual airbags and ABS.

The Vento is equipped with ABS (Antilock Braking System) that ensures the car remains maneuverable and in control, even in the event of heavy braking on slippery monsoon roads.

The Vento not only keeps you safe as you drive but also as you park. The parking sensors assist in parking manoeuvres by emitting audible signals, alerting the driver to any obstacles in the way: the closer you are to an obstacle, the faster the sound frequency.

The key to your Vento features a standard electronic immobiliser anti-theft device. In the Highline, you can also remote lock, unlock and open the boot. In itself, the key is also designed to fold in so that you can carry it comfortably in your

trouser pockets.

Anti-pinch protection windows protect you in case your arm is resting along the seam. They are also an important safety technology as they prevent the windows from opening even by the slightest movement of the hand.

3-point seat belts are the primary means of protection and are available for front and rear outboard seat occupants. Anchorage on the front seat belts is height-adjustable for a more comfortable and secure fit.

We dont take anything for granted; not even the unforgiving roads. Ergo, the Vento carries dual airbags as standard for the driver and co-driver. Along with the seat belts and ABS, the Vento is one of the safest cars in its class.

Engines and Transmissions.

The Vento offers two 1.6L variants available in a choice of diesel and petrol. The Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 16 valve, 1.6L petrol engine delivers 105 PS (77kW) of peak power and a peak torque of 153Nm at an easy 3800rpm. And ensuring zero compromise, it offers a fuel efficiency of 15.8 km/l for the manual transmission and 14.4 km/l for the automatic transmission under Indian test conditions. Equally superior is the Turbocharged Common Rail 1.6L diesel engine in the Vento that is designed to deliver dynamic performance and go frugal on fuel as well. This engine produces 105 PS (77kW) of unbridled power and an amazing torque of 250Nm from 1500rpm to 2500rpm, making it one of the most powerful diesel engines on the road. It offers a fuel efficiency of 20.5 km/l under Indian test conditions. Take it out for a drive and youll know why they call it the best of both worlds. Refinement is the hallmark of the 5-speed manual transmission. It effortlessly delivers a positive shift action. Besides, this transmission helps deliver exhilarating performance coupled with impressive fuel efficiency, making it a force to reckon with.

The automatic transmission adapts to the driving style of the driver- from leisurely cruising to sporty performance. If need be, you could even take matters into your own hands with the Tiptronic gearshift function.

The Vento features our latest 1.6L Common Rail diesel technology which is incredibly fuel-efficient yet surprisingly quiet. Youd probably need to drive it to believe it.
