Already spied on multiple occasions around Pune, the new 2015 Volkswagen Vento features minor cosmetic changes on its exterior and subtle updates on the inside.

Exterior features on board the new Vento includes a new front triple slat grille, low set (more prominent) VW badge, a flatter bonnet and new foglamp enclosur, and new wing mirrors with integrated indicators are also seen. Changes at the rear include a redesigned boot lid and horizontal chrome strip across the boot. Interiors could sport changes in upholstery while colours could include a darker shade of beige.

As far as engine powering the new Vento is concerned, do not expect any change. 2015 Volkswagen Vento will continue to be powered by one diesel and two petrol engine options. Diesel engine is in the form of a 1.5 liter four cylinder, turbo, with peak power of 105 PS and peak torque of 250 Nm. This engine is mated to a 5 speed manual or 7 speed DSG.
