New 2015 Volkswagen Vento Facelift Is Substantial, No Mechanical Changes

Recommended Posts

With better armed rivals such the Honda City and Hyundai’s Verna 4S (among others), Volkswagen has been feeling the pressure for quite a while. So let’s see what this new 2015 Vento brings to the table.he alterations made to the 2015 Volkswagen Vento are mostly cosmetic. That’s not a bad thing as the outgoing one’s mechanicals are pretty much bullet-proof. Let’s start with exterior changes and the front fascia, first.

  • New and more mature-looking front grille with 3 slats, like the one on the Passat.
  • Newer front bumper that’s more aerodynamic. There’s rectangular fog lights with built-in cornering lights.
  • There’s a pronounced chrome strip running across the lower part of the air dam.

The changes to the side of the 2015 Vento aren’t much, save for the integrated turn indicators in the ORVMs. You’ll also notice a newer design for the 15-inch alloy wheels. These are identical to the ones found on the new Polo hatchback. Otherwise, majority of the design here remains unaltered.

The rear of the 2015 Volkswagen Vento look a bit more upmarket now.

Just like the front fascia, there have been some changes at the rear too. Also, we must add, there’s chrome galore all over this saloon.

A revised bumper has a thick strip of chrome at the bottom and gets reflectors.

  • The boot can now be opened externally, thanks to a boot release button.
  • The tailpipe and door handles now get dashings of chrome too.
  • The chrome strip on the boot has moved up, now located just below the ‘VW’ logo.
  • Taillight cluster is now refreshed and looks more premium.

The cabin retains the overall look and finish of the 2014 Vento. The fantastic flat-bottom steering wheel remains and so do the audio controls on it. There’s the well executed silver detailing that is to be found on the wheel, AC vents and around the infotainment rig. The new additions include:

  • Cruise control functionality.
  • Darker beige interior than before.
  • Dead pedal for your left foot is a definite boon on long highway stints.
  • There’s now an auto-folding feature for the electronically operated ORVMs.
  • VW has also added a cooled glovebox for added convenience.

Mechanically, the 2015 Volkswagen Vento remains unaltered and that isn’t bad. The engines remain the same too and you can opt for a 1.2-litre petrol mill, a 1.6-litre petrol and there’s the 1.5-litre TDI motor too. As before, you get the choice of a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed dual-clutch DSG unit. (source:motoroids)
